Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, commonly abbreviated as NMN, is a kind of vitamin B3 or, more specifically, a niacin derivative. It is a ribonucleotide at the molecular level, a basic structural unit of nucleic acid RNA.
The composition of the molecule’s structure consists of a nicotinamide group, a phosphate, and a ribose group. Inside the cells, NMN is one of the main elements that increase the NAD+ levels. That’s because NMN is one of the direct precursors to the vital molecule Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
NMN has recently become a topic of interest among some of the worlds leading scientists as it shows great potential in becoming a primary anti-aging element for drugs as a nutraceutical. By Incorporating NMN into a healthy and balanced diet, you could improve NAD+ levels within your cells, and in turn, give a boost to your body’s longevity gene, Sirtuin.
