In 2011 a research team of theUniversity of Washington School of Medicine (St. Louis, Missouri)
lead by Professor Shin-Ichiro Imai reported the existence and amazing effects of β-nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), a substance naturally found in the cells of all organisms, which belongs to the family of the B3 vitamins and is a precursor of the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).
Currently, research on NMN continues around the world, and it has attracted a great deal of attention as it may be effective not only in the anti-aging field but also in a number of cases from which recovery was considered impossible by modern medicine until now.
Although it is a substance that is naturally produced in the body, it is considered that the body’s ability to produce it decreases with age, and as a result, the body gradually loses its regeneration capacity.
In addition, it acts on all seven longevity genes (sirtuin genes) and it is a substance from which rejuvenating and anti-aging effects can be expected.
Sirtuin genes play an important role in the control of aging and longevity The Control Center that controls aging Increasing the activity of the sirtuin genes in the brain keeps the muscles young. The decline of the body functions due to aging is thought to be caused by a decline in the activity of the control center in the brain.
Mitochondria produce ATP, the so-called energy currency of the organism More than 90% of the oxygen consumption of an organism is carried out by the mitochondria, which transforms it into a biological energy called ATP. Activation of mitochondria normalizes body functions (improves neurotransmission circuits and normalizes the activity of the inner organs) and is thought to delay the aging phenomenon. Another probable cause of aging is that the mitochondria get weak and lose quality with age, become less efficient and emit large amounts of active oxygen during the process of producing energy. NMN is supposed to act on the mitochondria, whose activity decline with age, so the administration of NMN can supply the mitochondria with vitality and support the sources of energy.
NMN is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and spreads throughout the body (it will probably reach the capillary vessels in about 15 minutes.) From NMN, we can expect great efficacy in improving neurotransmission pathways (neuralgia, etc.), immunity, fertility in both men and women, strengthening muscles and bones, improving hormone balance (better skin condition), increasing melatonin (better sleep quality), alleviate the symptoms of age-related diseases of the brain (dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, etc.) and ischemic brain disease due to the improvement of the synaptic neurotransmission, among others.
