Q: What is NMN? Where did it come from?
NMN, or nicotinamide mononucleotide, is a biomolecule that mainly exists in living organisms and plays an important role in regulating many biological functions. In recent years, with the increase of people’s attention to health, the research and application of NMN are more and more extensive.
The main source of NMN is food. Vitamin B3 can be converted into NMN and plays an important role in energy metabolism and biological adaptation of cells through human metabolism. It plays an important role in blood glucose balance, cell energy metabolism, DNA repair, anti-aging and so on.
NMN has many benefits for the human body. One of the most important is its aging health benefits. NMN can increase the production of the cell enzyme NAD +, which can further enhance the metabolism and repair ability of cells by activating Sirtuin kinase involved in cell energy metabolism, and delay the aging process of cells. In addition, NMN can also enhance the body’s immune system, improve liver function, prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and improve the function of the nervous system.
The research of NMN has also made many breakthroughs. For example, Sunwaywill developed a low-cost and efficient method that made the preparation of NMN easier, and launched a variety of health products, which became trusted and favored by many people in society. In addition, NMN is being widely used in the medical field, and studies have shown that it can stimulate the heart to re-engage blood vessels, improve cognitive function, and prevent a variety of diseases.
Ten effects of nmn:
1. NMN helps to delay aging
NAD+(Coenzyme I) maintains the chemical communication between the nucleus and mitochondria, if the communication is weakened, it will lead to mitochondrial decline, which is an important reason for cell aging. NAD+(Coenzyme I) can maintain the normal expression of genes, maintain the professional function of cells, and slow the process of cell evolution into senescent cells.
2, NMN helps to prevent three high, diabetes
The key to lowering blood sugar is insulin. If islet cells are destroyed and insulin secretion disorders are caused, then diabetes is easy to occur. NMN can stimulate insulin activity and strengthen the decomposition of fat and polysaccharide substances, so NMN can reduce the risk of diabetes.
3. NMN helps prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases
Clinical studies on arteriosclerosis and related cardiovascular diseases have shown that oxidation of low density lipoprotein is an important cause of arteriosclerosis. NMN is mainly used to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases by increasing high-density lipoprotein, reducing low-density lipoprotein, being oxidized, reducing inflammatory response of macrophages, reducing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, increasing the stability of atherosclerotic plaques, reducing plaque rupture, and improving blood flow, etc.
4. NMN helps to enhance immunity
NMN can promote the production of antibodies by spleen cells, enhance the function of immune T cells, and stimulate the production of immunoglobulin in vivo, which has important immunomodulatory effects.
5. NMN helps prevent cancer
The results show that NMN has significant anticancer properties. NMN also induces transferase in the liver, more significantly than beta-carotene. NMN can also prevent the carcinogenicity of aflatoxins, and has a good effect on reducing the number and volume of aflatoxin-induced liver tumor cells.
6. NMN helps prevent high blood pressure
NMN mainly inhibits and reverses atherosclerosis by supplementing NAD, enabling foam cells to gradually restore smooth muscle cells of blood vessels, thereby restoring blood vessel elasticity, and preventing thrombosis re-formation through anti-inflammatory effects, thus opening blocked collateral circulation and expanding blood volume, thereby continuously and slowly reducing blood pressure.
7, maintain capillary regeneration ability
When muscle cells exercise, they release growth factor, and capillary epidermal cells receive growth factor and accelerate growth. This process depends on the longevity protein Sirtuin1 produced by NAD+(Coenzyme I). The older people are, the less NAD+(Coenzyme I), and the worse the effect of exercise to stimulate muscle growth.
8. Alcohol metabolism
Alcohol metabolism is divided into two steps, first converted to toxic acetaldehyde, and then further broken down into harmless acetic acid, each step must rely on coenzyme I catalysis.
9. NMN helps protect vision
The retinoid and central nervous systems of humans are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. Therefore, the free radicals generated by oxidation are easy to cause peroxidation damage. Studies have found that NMN easily passes through the blood-brain barrier and cell membrane, can effectively prevent retinal oxidation, and play a protective role in the central nervous system, especially the brain, so as to effectively treat spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s syndrome and other central nervous system injuries. In particular, the effect of retinal macular degeneration is more significant than that of lutein.
10. Improve sleep
Supplementation with NMN can increase the level of NAD+ in the body, and NAD+ is also strongly related to the biological clock. The interaction between NAD+ and the biological clock is manifested in that the metabolism of NAD+ is regulated by the biological clock, and in turn affects the biological clock. For people who are sleep-deprived and have irregular schedules, raising NAD+ levels in the body can help regulate the body clock and return it to a normal circadian rhythm.
