Healthy Ageing Study
In a randomized scientific study to look at the metabolic effects of NMN administration in people, researchers at the prestigious Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, USA, have found that the compound previously demonstrated to counteract aspects of aging and improve metabolic health in mice also has clinically relevant effects in people.

A healthy body typically features a coherent brain, exceptional memory processing, an optimal immune system, strong muscles, sturdy bones, and well-functioning organ systems. As we age, each of those pieces become less and less efficient. The purpose of healthy ageing support medicine is to maintain or regain total overall health - as well as longevity - regardless of advancing age. Over time, cells undergo multiple chemical processes of aging - namely, oxidation, glycation, and methylation. During oxidation, unstable compounds known as free radicals can lead to cell damage and interact with other compounds to produce harmful chemicals. Through glycation, these chemicals attach to and negatively affect mitochondria, proteins, and DNA. Subsequently, DNA linked to other chemicals and lacking sufficient methyl groups cannot continue to produce generations of new DNA for future cells, and cell regeneration comes to a halt. If your body can no longer produce new, healthy cells to continue to maintain its tissues and functions, aging and eventual death occurs.
NMN works toward restoring functional proteins and DNA. To get NMN into your cells, Magnesium and Black Pepper Extract are used. Magnesium is not only an excellent anti inflammatory that can assist with lower blood pressure, but it also is involved in hundreds of biochemical cell reactions in your body. Black Pepper is an excellent antioxidant that assists NMN metabolism and reduces free radicals that damage cells. Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is used as it is essential to administer the utilisation of NMN into cells. Vitamin B2 as Riboflavin metabolize fats and protein and produces energy. NMN is quickly absorbed from the gut into blood circulation within 2–3 min and also cleared from blood circulation into tissues within 15 min.
