PRODUCT SUMMARY 

NMN, a precursor substance of NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) which enables cells to  produce energy. NAD+ levels decline with age, which has been proved to be a major factor leading to  aging. Maintaining or replenishing NAD+ levels then theoretically could be an effective solution. PQQ,  a novel vitamin-like compound found in a variety of foods that is showing a wide range of benefits to  brain and body function. It contributes to nerve growth factor (NGF) production, helps to nourish the  nerves and supports recovery from brain injury. One key action of PQQ involves a direct action on key  enzymes in mitochondria. In line with its powerful antioxidant effect, PQQ protects against  mitochondrial damage. It also promotes the spontaneous generation of new mitochondria within aging  cells.  

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF NMN 

Recent research shows that NMN feeds into the production of NAD+, which provides cells with needed energy and is thought to be critical for healthy aging. NAD+ also plays a key role in  activating proteins that maintain the integrity of our DNA. Given its central role in so many  cellular processes, the potential benefits of NMN extend to nearly all body systems.  

Promotes Vascular Health and Blood Flow 

Studies in mice have shown that NMN protects against numerous aging-related declines  in vascular health, such as the stiffening of blood vessels, oxidative stress, our cells’ ability to keep dividing, and even changes in how active our genes are, what scientists  call gene expression. 

Improves Muscle Endurance and Strength 

We rely on our skeletal muscles for movement, stability, and strength. To remain strong and in good condition, these muscles must consume significant amounts of key energy molecules, like glucose and fatty acids. Because NAD+ is required to metabolize these molecules, our muscles need a steady supply of its building blocks, such as NMN. 

Studies have shown that mice fed NMN for extended periods of time had better energy metabolism with no obvious side effects. The health of our muscles grows ever more important as we age and our own supply of NAD+ declines. 

Protects Against Heart Disease 

While your skeletal muscles get to take breaks, your heart does not get to rest. This  blood-pumping organ can’t even slow its pace much without causing serious problems.  The heart’s energy requirement, therefore, is tremendous. And to keep it ticking, it needs to make all the NAD+ it can. This is why heart cells need a steady supply of NMN. 

Lowers Risk of Obesity 

Obesity is linked to a wide array of unhealthy conditions and can be very challenging to  treat. There is no easy remedy for obesity and related conditions such as diabetes and metabolic syndrome. While lifestyle adjustments like consistent exercise and a healthy diet are of paramount importance, every little bit helps.

In mouse studies, NMN displays an effect that mimics aspects of calorie restriction,  which has been shown to provide numerous benefits to aging and health. However,  calorie restriction is a difficult regime to maintain over a long period of time. Mimicking its  benefits without adhering to such an extreme diet would be undeniably beneficial. 

Enhances Maintenance of DNA Repair 

The NAD+ made from NMN activates a group of proteins called sirtuins — sometimes  thought of as the guardians of our health span. Sirtuins play a key role in maintaining  DNA integrity, which is constantly being bombarded by DNA altering substances  (mutagens) like UV radiation. Also, each time our cells divide, the DNA at the very ends  of our chromosomes grows a tiny bit shorter. At a certain point, this begins to damage  our genes. Sirtuins slow this process by stabilizing those end bits, known scientifically as  telomeres. 

Since sirtuins rely upon NAD+ to function, there has been an effort to enhance sirtuin  activity through NAD+ boosting methods. Along these lines, several recent studies have  demonstrated that feeding mice NMN activated sirtuins and led to more stable  telomeres. 

Increases Mitochondrial Function 

Simply put, we couldn’t live without our mitochondria. These unique cellular structures,  which even have their own DNA, are known as the powerhouses of the cell.  Mitochondria are critical for metabolism; that is, they convert molecules from the food we  eat into the energy that our cells use. 

At the very core of metabolism is NAD+. Without NAD+, mitochondria cannot metabolize  and cells will be left without energy, resulting in their death. In fact, mitochondrial  anomalies caused by the loss of NAD+ may even impact neurological disorders, such as  Alzheimer’s. Studies done in mice have shown that NMN supplementation has rescued  some mitochondrial dysfunctions.
