NMN – What Are the Benefits?

NMN – What Are the Benefits?

NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) is a precursor to the essential coenzyme NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide). NAD+ is a vital molecule involved in thousands of reactions for cell energy, DNA repair and cell stress alleviation. Our NAD+ levels decline significantly with age, and with exposure to certain stressors such as a sedentary lifestyle, excessive alcohol intake and high fat/sugar diets. This decline in NAD+ correlates with the onset of age-related diseases such as cardiovascular, neurological and metabolic issues. By middle age most adults’ NAD+ levels have depleted by up to 50% of that in our youth.

NMN is found naturally in a variety of fruits and vegetables such as cabbage, cucumber, broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, and avocado - so a healthy diet can go a long way towards helping to keep cells ‘young’, alongside other healthy lifestyle behaviours such as exercise and quality sleep, which is also associated with increased levels of NAD+.

As well as a healthy diet, supplementing with NAD precursors, such as NMN can raise NAD+ levels. In animal models, studies have shown this can extend healthspan (defined as years lived in good health) and help reduce premature ageing.

NAD+ is important for

  • Maintaining healthy brain function
  • Maintaining healthy metabolism
  • Maintaining a healthy heart
  • Muscle function - NAD+ is a key part of maintaining healthy mitochondria for steady energy output, crucial for exercise performance.

Research and interest surrounding NMN and its anti-ageing potential has been increasing. It has been determined that normal NAD+ levels may support healthy ageing, provide anti-inflammatory effects, improved insulin sensitivity, strong metabolism, regulated blood pressure, and delayed cognitive impairment.

Hellenia are now stocking the NAD+ precursor NMN in capsule form, with each capsule containing 250mg Nicotinamide Mononucleotide. Suitable for vegans, take just 2 capsules per day with a meal. Each pot gives one month supply. For further product details, or to order click here.

Top Foods to eat for Vitamin C

Vitamin C is commonly called the antioxidant vitamin. This is because it is important in helping to protect our cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C helps to support the immune system, as well as helping our bodies to make collagen, and assisting with the absorption of iron. It is necessary for...
