Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a molecule that has gained attention in recent years for its potential role in promoting longevity, slowing aging, and supporting overall health. NMN is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a critical coenzyme found in all living cells that plays a crucial role in various cellular processes, including energy metabolism, DNA repair, and cellular signaling.

While research on NMN is still in its early stages, several preclinical and clinical studies have suggested potential benefits for longevity, slowing aging, and improving health. It is important to note that most of these studies have been conducted on animals, and more research is needed to fully understand the implications of NMN supplementation in humans.

  1. Longevity: Studies conducted on mice have shown that NMN supplementation can extend their lifespan. For example, a 2016 study by Mills et al. found that NMN administration led to increased NAD+ levels and improved mitochondrial function, which in turn increased the mice’s lifespan (
  2. Slowing aging: NMN’s potential to slow down the aging process is primarily linked to its role in increasing NAD+ levels. NAD+ declines with age, leading to impaired cellular functions and contributing to the aging process. By replenishing NAD+ levels, NMN might help counteract age-related functional decline. A 2013 study by Yoshino et al. demonstrated that NMN supplementation restored NAD+ levels and improved mitochondrial function in aged mice, suggesting its potential role in slowing aging (
  3. Health benefits: NMN has shown promise in improving various aspects of health, including metabolic health, cardiovascular function, and neuroprotection.

In summary, NMN has demonstrated promising results in preclinical studies for promoting longevity, slowing aging, and improving health. However, it is essential to note that most of these findings are based on animal studies, and more research, including well-designed clinical trials in humans, is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of NMN supplementation.
