NMN stands for nicotinamide mononucleotide and is present in all life forms.
What is NMN?
The molecule NMN is the direct precursor of the essential molecule nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, known as NAD+. The levels of NMN decrease with age.
NMN is structurally composed of a nicotinamide group, a ribose and a phosphate group. At the molecular level, it is a ribo-nucleotide, which is a basic structural unit of the nucleic acid RNA.
Benefits of NMN supplement
- The presence of NMN in cells can act as a key component in increasing NAD+ levels
- Can give beneficial and positive effects in anti aging and increasing lifespan
- Young people supplementing with NMN can help maintain NAD levels into old age
