What is Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN)?
NMN is a derivative of nicotinamide and is used to support healthy aging due to its ability to increase NAD+ levels in the body. NAD+ is a key ingredient in mitochondrial function (cellular health).
NMN vs Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)
Nicotinamide riboside is a similar ingredient which increases NAD+ levels. Both NMR and NR are capable in increasing NAD+ levels, there has not been a definitive side-by-side comparison. This journal article is the closest we could find on an unbiased comparison.
The differences between NR and NMR are contentious, as shown in this writeup at stardust.bio.
Reddit also has a great list of sources comparing NMN, NR, and NADH.
With heightened NAD+ levels from NMR, this supports healthy aging for an already active lifestyle. We suggest taking on new healthy aging habits such as intermittent fasting and daily exercise.
Dr. David Sinclair’s podcast interview (YouTube link) goes in depth on the benefits of NMR and longevity-related habits.
Take 1 capsule (125 mg) in the morning and another in the afternoon or evening.
