What you are about to read may seem “too good to be true” but trust me it is real, and we have the science to back it. In this article we are going to explore the proven benefits of a medically discovered supplement that has the potential to change the lives of everyone over the age of 40.
It is called NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), which is required to produce NAD+, a critical coenzyme found in every cell of the human body. NAD+ helps transform nutrients into energy in cellular metabolism and assists the proteins that regulate other cellular processes. With age, NAD+ decreases and with the decline, aging is accelerated.
NMN supplementation has remarkable therapeutic effects on treating metabolic problems and other diseases. NMN is capable of supporting healthier NAD+ back to levels comparable to that of a much younger person. The results have proven so profound that the pharmaceutical industry is trying to force it under prescription use only, even though all the research shows it to be safe.
Here’s how NMN can boost your health in a variety of ways.
NMN, energy and endurance: One of the most profound benefits is NMN’s ability to increase energy metabolism and improve physical performance. Energy metabolism is the process of producing energy from the nutrients we receive from food or supplementation. According to research, NMN has significant preventive effects against age-associated degradation in energy metabolism and can stimulate physical activity in mice.
According to another study on treating 18-month-old mice with NMN, the animal subjects showed a 56 to 80 percent improvement in endurance after two months. Beneficial effects were also seen in mice up to 32 months old, equivalent to humans in their 80s. Cerebral blood flow to active brain areas ensures enough oxygen and nutrients to carry out its functions.
NMN for eye function improvement has been demonstrated: The loss of NAD+ levels could lead to neurodegeneration in the eye and vision loss. Replenishing NMN can prevent negative consequences and restore vision. Long-term NMN administration significantly enhances eye function and tear production. Another study showed that NMN could also protect eye cells and reduce inflammation in dry eye disease by triggering DNA maintenance and a health-promoting protein.
NMN and heart failure: Heart failure is associated with mitochondrial dysfunction. It is critical to restore or improve mitochondrial health to prevent heart failure. Research has shown that short-term administration of NMN successfully protected the mice against heart failure by protecting mitochondrial ultrastructure and avoiding cell death in the heart. The findings have also concluded that NMN administration can be a promising therapy for cardiac diseases.
NMN may suppress body weight gain: This remarkable result may decrease other disorders associated with weight gain. Human muscle mass declines as we get older, but our fat mass grows. This fat mass growth is one of the causes of age-associated body weight gain. NMN administration significantly suppressed age-associated body weight gain in mice after 12 months without any sign of apparent toxicity.
NMN may support better health for diabetics: Insulin sensitivity refers to how sensitive the body’s cells react to insulin. High insulin sensitivity helps the body cells use blood glucose more effectively, resulting in lower blood sugar levels. In contrast, low insulin sensitivity can progress to type 2 diabetes and weight gain. According to research, long-term NMN administration can reduce the age-associated decline in insulin sensitivity in mice.
NMN has been shown to improve memory: Many users of NMN experience improvements in cognitive function, making them feel sharper or better able to concentrate. We also see in studies that NMN has beneficial effects on brain functioning, like improving cognition and blood flow in the brains of mice.
NMN and healthier blood flow: Studies show that NMN rejuvenates aged blood vessels. NMN considerably improves vascular elasticity in old animals. Old mice that receive NMN have blood vessels that dilate as well as young control mice. In contrast, dilatation of the blood vessels was considerably impaired in old mice that didn’t receive NMN.
NMN improves stem cell health and generates new cell growth: During aging, stem cells decline, and the remaining stem cells often become dysfunctional. This contributes to aging, given stem cells generate new cells and maintain our tissues. Various studies show that NMN, or boosting NAD levels, can improve stem cell health and self-renewal.
NMN helps cells to repair their damaged DNA: DNA damage is one of the reasons why we age faster. Mice that were given NMN had significantly less DNA damage (as measured by alpha-H2AX), a biomarker for DNA damage. Another very impressive marker is that liver cells in old untreated mice had much more DNA damage compared to old mice treated with NMN.
NMN is now available at NHC Herb Shop in Killen, Herbs & More in Athens or by calling 256-757-0660. Slow down the aging process and enjoy a higher quality of life.
