1. The appropriate age for taking NMN
There is no definitive answer to this question as the appropriate age for taking nmn will vary depending on the individual's health condition and other factors.
Generally speaking, after the age of 50, physical discomfort brought on by aging will start to be felt.
In other words, aging has been happening since we were born, but because there are so many more new cells than senescent cells, we don't notice it. Once we accept that aging has arrived, we must also accept that there are not enough new cells to replace all senescent cells. Where aging is first felt is where this lack of alternation of old and new first appears.
Even so, there are many things we can improve. The aging of young cells should be slowed down as much as possible, and we should try to prevent senescent cells from dying completely.
Aging is with us from birth to death. Therefore, the sooner slowing measures are taken, the better.
*It is advisable to speak with a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen.
2. Ways to taking NMN
There are typically two kinds: oral supplements and intravenous infusions. There are several types of oral supplements: capsules, lozenges, powder, and tablets.
- Capsules are ingested whole and dissolve in the stomach, releasing their contents.
- Lozenges are medicated candies that dissolve slowly in the mouth.
- Powder is a dry form of medication that is meant to be mixed with water or another liquid before ingestion.
- Tablets are solid pieces of medication that are meant to be swallowed whole.
- Supplements that are injected intravenously bypass the digestive system, so they are absorbed more quickly and completely. This means that a higher concentration of the supplement can reach the bloodstream and target cells. Its inconvenience for daily consumption is a major downside.
The most effective method of absorption is intravenous injection, but it is cumbersome and takes too long. More importantly, daily nmn intake is required rather than a single large intake.
The primary distinction between the various methods of oral administration is whether it involves oral absorption or gastrointestinal absorption. In general, though, oral absorption is generally less efficient than gastrointestinal absorption. This is because the gastrointestinal tract has a large surface area for absorption, while the surface area of the mouth is relatively small. Additionally, the gastrointestinal tract is specially designed for absorption, while the mouth is not.
According to the information above, taking nmn supplements orally in the form of capsules is our top suggestion.
3. The timing and frequency of taking NMN
Please take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
According to the results of the latest human clinical trials, the human body's NAD+ concentration and work and rest cycles are related: it gradually increases when getting up in the morning, decreases after reaching its peak during the day, and reaches its lowest point at night before going to bed. The purpose of taking NMN is to supplement the NAD+ that the body lacks due to aging. Taking it in the morning helps the body's NAD+ concentration reach a higher level, while at other times, especially at night, the body's NAD+ concentration should be at a lower level. Taking NMN will disrupt the body's NAD+ rise and fall cycle.
Supplement (oral): once a day on an empty stomach in the morning.
Intravenous injection: once every 4 weeks.
4. The dose of taking NMN
According to recent research reports, the recommended dose is between 300 and 500 mg per day.
The report comes from the first human clinical trial of NMN conducted by Shinichiro Imai Professor, University of Washington in October 2020 to analyze the results of 56 prediabetic men and women aged 45 to 75 who took 300 mg of NMN daily for 16 weeks.
Depending on how you feel, you can increase or decrease the specific dose.
