NMN Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is a safe and naturally occurring vitamin B3 metabolite already found in our bodies. NMN can also be found in tiny amounts (less than 2mg/100g-food) in various foods sources such as broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, avocados, edamame, mushrooms, tomatoes, raw-beef and shrimp. NMN is a direct and powerful (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) NAD+ supplement. NMN was the actual compound used by scientists to reverse several longevity bio-markers in old mice, sparking worldwide interest in NAD research.
A 12- month long study designed to evaluate the long-term effects of oral supplementation of NMN in mice was remarkable.
The mice that supplemented NMN demonstrated significant differences in age-related body energy production, blood sugar, gene expression, mitochondrial function, eye function, bone density and immune function with no toxicity. The study showed that orally administered NMN is extremely bioavailable. NMN showed a sharp increase in the bloodstream after only 2.5 minutes. It increased NAD+ levels in the liver in as little as 10 minutes and in muscle tissue at 30 minutes.
