What is NMN?
NMN (Nicotinamide mononucleotide) is an endogenous substance which exists in our bodies and was proved to have anti-aging effects in 2013 by Paul F. Glenn Center of Aging Biology at Harvard Medical School. Many research institutions and scientists have proved that NMN can be quickly transformed into NAD+ in the body which lead to realizing the effect of delaying aging, improving cell vitality, and improving body functions.
What is NAD+?
NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) was first discovered in 1906 by Mr. Arthur Harden. In 1929, he became Nobel Prize laureate in Chemistry for his research. Since then, many Nobel laureates performed research around NAD+. NAD+ plays an irreplaceable role in cell metabolism, mitochondria supplement, DNA repair, sirtuins activation, and aging regulation, and is a key factor determining human aging.
Can NMN truly achieve anti-aging?
Since the anti-aging effects of NMN was discovered, many scientific research institutions and scientists, such as the University of Washington and Harvard Medical School in the United States; the Keio University and Hiroshima University in Japan, have successively devoted into researching NMN. Based on a large number of scientific studies and animal experiments, NMN can be rapidly transformed into NAD+ realizing a series of effects relating to anti-aging through transforming into NAD+. These related research results have been published in "The Nature", "The Cell", "The Science", and other authoritative journals.
Is NMN safe to take?
NMN is an endogenous substance in the human body and is found in small amounts in many foods. In addition NMN has been tested as drugs in many clinical trials around the world, and they have passed Phase I human safety clinical trials and entering the stage of efficacy verification. A clinical study on the safety of NMN published in the Journal of Endocrinology in 2020 also showed that 500mg of NMN is safe in a single oral administration, and NMN can be safely and effectively metabolized in the human body without any harmful effects.
Who is suitable for NMN?

What’s the best adequate daily dosage?
If using SNINE NMN 15000, it is recommended to take 1-2 capsules (250mg to 500mg) per day for those under 40 years of age and 2 or more capsules (500mg and above) for those over 40 years of age to get maximum results.
When do I take NMN to maximize the effects?
It is recommended to take it early in the day on an empty stomach for best results. Taking on other times during the day would not affect the effectiveness, but some people may feel more alive and energetic when they take it at night.
Why is it not recommended to take NMN at night?
After taking NMN, the level of NAD+ in the body increases, and the level of mitochondrial energy molecule ATP increases, which is easy to cause excessive energy, especially for people with high excitement at night, and can easily affect their sleep.
What is the recommended age to take NMN?
It is recommended to start at the age of 30 because the NAD+ value drops to 2.74 in the 30-50 age range, and 1.08 in the 51-70 age range. However, nowadays, many young people in their 20s begin to stay up late, smoke, and drink, therefore it is suggested to start supplementing NMN early to maintain overall health.
Will taking NMN cause drug-dependency?
There is no physiological dependence on NMN because NMN is a substance inherent in the human body and also contained in many of foods. Hence, it is not addictive and can be taken at ease.
Is there any side effects for taking NMN for a long time? Is it still effective if you stop taking it?
There are many natural foods, vegetables, and fruits containing NMN. There would be no side effects for long-term use. There is also no adverse effects from stopping taking NMN.
Who is not suitable for NMN?
- People with major diseases such as cancer, multiple cysts, mental diseases, and allergic diseases are advised to consult doctors before taking NMN.
- For some non-serious diseases requiring short-term medication, such as viral cold, gingival inflammation etc, it is recommended to suspend NMN during medication treatment and continue taking NMN after recovery.
- NMN is not recommended for people whose NAD+ levels are already high, such as people under 18 years old, pregnant women and lactating women (infants with high NAD+ levels).
- NMN may lead to elevated uric acid in patients with gout, so it is not recommended.
Can cancer patients take NMN?
NMN is to supplement the level of NAD+ in the human body. Whether it can be taken by the cancer patients varies from person to person due to the different conditions of each person. It is recommended to consult with your doctor first and follow the doctor's advice.
Can NMN be taken together with hypoglycaemic drugs and antihypertensive drugs?
Studies have shown that long-term use of NMN is helpful to stabilize blood pressure and improve insulin sensitivity. It is suggested that the time of taking NMN, antihypertensive drugs and anti-diabetic drugs should be staggered by more than 2 hours. At the same time, blood pressure and blood sugar should be monitored every day. If there is a decrease, the dosage of drugs can be reduced with the consent of the doctor.
Can I take NMN when blood pressure is low?
NMN is not an antihypertensive drug, although it realizes various effects through NAD+. Taking NMN helps to stabilize blood pressure in people who have hypertension, because of the various effects begin to recover after the level of NAD+ in the body is increased. Currently, no scientific studies have found any adverse effects of NMN on hypotension.
Can I take NMN during a cold?
The common cold does not affect, and NMN can be taken normally.
Can women take NMN during menstrual period?
In general, women can take NMN during their periods. However, if you suffer from gynaecological inflammation, it is recommended to stop taking it during the menstrual period.

Should I keep NMN in the refrigerator after opening it?
No, the humidity in the refrigerator is high, which is not conducive to the storage of NMN. After unpacking the NMN product, place it in a cool and dry place.
Can take NMN causing body internal heat* which leads to canker sore or oral ulcer?
The situation of increasing internal heat varies from person to person. Since the mitochondria produce more energy molecules called ATP and consume more B vitamins after the NAD+ level is raised, individual users may experience an initial reaction of internal heat. In addition, NMN activates glands in the stomach, spleen, and kidney, while the peripheral tissues of the body are still sluggish and aging, so there is a transient internal and external imbalance in the initial stage of NMN's action. At this time just need to supplement more water, increase exercise can relieve.
You can also start with one pill and gradually increase the dosage as your body adjusts to it. NMN itself does not cause internal heat, which is because the body's original metabolic level is relatively low. After taking NMN, mitochondrial function improves in a short time, and the body ADAPTS to the response of the process, so there is no need to worry.
*Excessive internal heat is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine. Normally people with excessive internal heat would easily get inflamed, sore throat, toothache, acnes, canker sore, and ulcer.
Why does the frequency of urination increase after taking NMN?
NMN helps to increase the body's metabolic level, which increases the body's demand for water, resulting in thirst, and excessive water consumption will lead to more frequent natural toilet runs.
It has been reported on the Internet that NMN induces cell cancerous, is it true?
The report alleging that NMN causes cancer was taken out of context. The original meaning of the article mentioned in the news is that the animal cancer models grow faster when supplemented with NAD+. But that does not mean that replenishing normal cells with NMN will turn them into cancer cells. On the contrary, several studies have shown that the supplementation of NMN to normal cells can actually improve the immune system.
Does tea and coffee affect the efficacy of NMN?
Tea and coffee contribute to the absorption and transformation of NMN, and both tea polyphenols and caffeine are active components of NMN.
What are the advantages of NMN enterolysis technology?
According to a study published in the January 2019 issue of the Science, the SLC12A8 transporter is responsible for transporting NMN into cells in the small intestine, where it is then absorbed by cells in various organs and tissues of the body and does not undergo oxidative degradation. SLC12A8 content is the highest in small intestine, which is 10-100 times higher than that in other organs, so small intestine is the best place for NMN absorption. The absorption effect of NMN can be enhanced several times by intestinal absorption, avoiding the decomposition of gastric acid.
Can you take NMN products to relieve from the effect of alcohol and protect the liver?
In 2018, Professor Ketan Patel's team from Cambridge, UK, published in the top academic journal Nature, found that after knocking out the ALDH2 gene in mice, the DNA became unstable because alcohol and its metabolite (acetaldehyde) failed to degrade in time. This, in turn, can lead to a marked decrease in the activity of hematopoietic stem cells and even increase the risk of cancer.
It's worth noting that the ALDH2 gene that was knocked out in the study, in 540 million people around the world, already carries a mutation that does not clear acetaldehyde. Also, Asians make up a large portion of the population.
Test the metabolic capacity of the liver
About 10 percent of the alcohol we drink is quickly absorbed by the mouth, stomach and small intestine through respiration and urination. The rest travels through the bloodstream to the liver. So, "cure wine" the most important is the metabolic ability of the test liver. The liver metabolizes alcohol through a complex series of transformations
1. Alcohol (ethanol) converts to acetaldehyde under the action of ADH (ethanol dehydrogenase) and NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide);
2. Acetaldehyde is converted to acetic acid by ALDH2 (acetaldehyde dehydrogenase 2) and NAD+;
3. Acetic acid enters the tricarboxylic acid cycle and, after a series of reactions, is converted to carbon dioxide and water.
Among these, the most harmful to health is the toxic acetaldehyde, ALDH2 deletion or mutation, will make the liver to acetaldehyde metabolism pathway blocked. As a result, excess acetaldehyde is present in the liver, and when it encounters a protein, it binds forcibly to form an acetaldehyde protein adduct.
Acetaldehyde robbed apolipoprotein, will block the transport of fat, resulting in fat backlog in the liver cells, the formation of alcoholic fatty liver;
Acetaldehyde harms the proteins on the liver cell membrane, which is easy to induce inflammation, leading to alcoholic hepatitis;
Acetaldehyde protein adducts also speed up the process of liver fibrosis, which, if allowed to progress, can lead to the dreaded cirrhosis of the liver.
In fact, even for those who are heavy drinkers, long-term or excessive drinking that exceeds the liver's metabolic capacity will inevitably lead to liver damage over time. Alcohol reduces NAD+ levels in the liver We already know that NAD+ is required in the liver to metabolize alcohol. NAD+ is also known as coenzyme 1. As the "number one coenzyme", it is involved in a number of important biochemical reactions in the human body, including REDOX reaction, metabolism and DNA repair mechanism. The Sirtuins family, known as longevity proteins, are also highly dependent on NAD+. The decline in NAD+ levels in our bodies is thought to be one of the key causes of aging in humans.
If the liver is always busy metabolizing alcohol, lower levels of NAD+ in the liver are thought to be important factors in inducing steatosis, oxidative stress, fatty liver, insulin resistance and gluconeogenesis inhibition. It seems that the wine drunk not only hurt liver, but also "urge people old".
Helps "cure alcohol and protect liver"
In this case, is NAD+ useful? The researchers believe that taking NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), a precursor of NAD+, can rapidly increase the level of NAD+ in the liver and accelerate the catabolism of alcohol, thus playing a role in rapid hangover. However, more important than "cure" is "protect the liver". In 2019, Kristofer S. Fritz et al. from the University of Colorado, USA, found that NMN can increase the level of NAD+ in the liver of experimental mice, and has a protective effect on the liver.
When mice with alcoholic liver disease were fed 500mg/kg of NMN every other day, levels of NAD+ and a range of precursor substances returned to control levels. In addition, NMN prevented the elevation of ALT and AST, two biomarkers of liver injury in plasma, suggesting that NMN had a protective effect on alcohol-induced liver injury. Using RNA sequence analysis, they also found that ethanol significantly altered the expression of 1,778 genes, of which NMN treatment reduced the effect of ethanol on 25% (437 genes). These results suggest that NMN is of great significance in the treatment of alcoholic fatty liver disease.
