NMN Boosts Energy Metabolism - NAD+ helps to breakdown food like sugars into energy.
Promotes Healthy Brain and Cardiovascular Function.
Anti-ageing DNA Repair - NAD+ is used to repair broken DNA strands.
SIRTUIN Activator - NAD+ is required for our longevity genes to work.
NMN is THE compound used by Harvard Scientists to reverse some signs of ageing tissue in mice that started the rush to NAD supplements.
NMN is an entirely natural compound found in our bodies. Various food sources also contain this compound in minuscule amounts. Edamame which has one of the higher contents, only show less than 1.9mg/100g. NMN is a direct and potent NAD+ supplement. Mice given an oral supplement of NMN showed increased liver NAD+ levels in just 10 minutes and showed an increase in muscle tissue by 30 minutes.
Increased NAD+ levels stimulate energy metabolism, DNA repair, and SIRTUIN activity. SIRTUINS are the longevity-genes shown to be active during caloric restriction and life-extension in many animal models.
Scientists have now confirmed a direct link between falling NAD+ levels and ageing in both animals and human subjects. A breakthrough study published by Harvard scientists in 2013 showed for the first time that some aspects of ageing might be reversible. After treating old mice with NMN, several biometric markers that were subsequently measured resembled those of young mice: "the equivalent of a 60-year old converting to a 20-year old". The research and understanding into NAD+ metabolomics are ongoing, but what the science has highlighted thus far, is the importance of supporting and maintaining our NAD+ levels.
A long-term evaluation of oral supplementation of NMN in mice was found to be effective at improving NAD+ levels safely. Mice supplemented with NMN vs. a control group showed notable age-associated differences in mass, energy metabolism, blood sugar, lipid metabolism, gene expression changes, mitochondrial oxygen use, eye function, bone density and immune function with no apparent toxic effects.
