NMN 活健齡 (β-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide)
Boost NAD+ levels to combat aging and live healthily
NAD+ is derived from β-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN), and supplementing with NMN is the most direct and effective way to increase NAD+ levels in the body. Research shows that increasing NAD+ levels, activating longevity genes Sirtuins, effectively improves nine major aging markers and improves a range of functional decline diseases caused by aging. In children and young people, NAD+ levels are very high, but as we age, NAD+ levels significantly decrease, leading to decline.
- Each bottle contains a 30-60 day dose (60 capsules)
- Each capsule contains 250mg of β-NMN, the single active ingredient
- Take one to two capsules daily with room-temperature water (one for young people, two capsules recommended for those over 40)
- Contains no animal ingredients, nuts, gluten, and artificial colors, vegetarian capsules
There are two precursors to NAD+, namely β-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) and Nicotinamide Riboside (NR). NR in the body is converted to NMN and then to NAD+. Professor David Sinclair once stated that he receives numerous inquiries every day on whether to choose NMN or NR. In his 2019 newly launched book "Lifespan" about why we age and why we don't have to, he mentioned that in their research, NMN is indeed more stable than NR, and NMN brings more benefits to the body than NR. However, NR was the first to be proven to extend the lifespan of research mice. For a comparison of NMN and NR, please refer to this article here 此文。
Professor David Sinclair has always advocated taking NMN to achieve anti-aging effects. The production process of NMN is both complex and rigorous, so the price of NMN has never been cheap. A British news report in April 2017 claimed that the professor himself spent $1,000 a month to take a daily dose of 500mg of NMN. This price is indeed unaffordable for the average person, and the relatively cheap Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) has consequently become a substitute for NMN.
Fortunately, the market situation has changed, causing NMN's high price to fall significantly; NMN's cost-effectiveness has greatly increased, undoubtedly making it the best choice to increase NAD+ levels in the body to fight aging.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I take NMN or NR?
Both NMN and NR are effective in boosting NAD+ levels in the body. Owing to market trends, NMN now provides good value for money and is very affordable. Professor Sinclair, who discovered the effectiveness of NAD+ in combating aging, focused his research on NMN, which he and his family have been taking, affirming its role in DNA repair and reversing cellular aging. Considering these factors, choosing NMN seems a wise choice. For a comparison between NMN and NR, please refer to this article.
At what age should I start taking NMN?
According to a 2012 medical paper from Australia, the average NAD+ value in newborns is 8.54(ng NAD+/mg protein), which drops to 2.74 in the 30-50 year age group and further drops to 1.08 in the 51-70 year age group. If you're in your 20s and care about your health, you can start taking NMN to enjoy the benefits of NAD+. The older you are, the more you should consider taking it, as your NAD+ levels are lower.
Are there any side effects of NMN? Would it be unsuitable for me?
No adverse side effects of NMN have been found in anyone. NAD+ is a coenzyme present in all our body cells. Taking NMN only increases our existing NAD+ levels and does not produce other chemical products. Every one of our cells originally has NMN. Of course, if you have a disease or doubts, please consult your family doctor first.
What dosage of NMN should I take?
Professor David Sinclair takes approximately 1000mg of NMN daily. If you're younger, a daily dose of 250mg (1 NMN pill) is recommended before the age of 40, and a daily dose of 500mg (2 NMN pills) is suggested after 40. The NRC/Niagen available in Hong Kong generally only has 100mg per pill, which is significantly less than the amount taken by the professor and his family.
Why is your NMN so cheap?
Our background is in the medical field. We hope to benefit the public and allow as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of NMN, effectively combating aging and maintaining healthy vitality. After spending considerable time, we negotiated directly with foreign pharmaceutical factories to save on middleman costs, aiming to introduce NMN to Hong Kong at the lowest possible price. Our NMN dosage is 250mg per capsule, a single ingredient without any tricky ingredients. While maintaining a high dosage, our price is the most affordable. Other brands typically only have a dosage of 50 - 125mg, or include other ingredients, and their prices are quite high, offering low cost-effectiveness, or requiring a purchase of 1-2 years' worth of supply to receive certain discounts.
How will I feel after taking NMN？
The older you are, the easier it will be to feel the health benefits brought by NMN. We have heard effects self-reported by users including increased athletic ability, reduced pain, slightly lower blood pressure, improved blood sugar, enhanced focus, improved memory, weight loss, improved sleep quality, etc. In fact, it's not surprising if you don't feel specific physical changes after taking NMN. If you're 40 this year and your body functions become 5 years younger after taking NMN for half a year, can you feel it? You must know that rejuvenation is a gradual process, very slow, and not a feeling that we can feel in a moment.
If I stop taking NMN, will aging accelerate?
Of course not, but your body will return to the gradual aging process. If you can afford this small cost, you will find this is the best gift for your health.
