“Trust me because unlike your makeup products, fake friends and your own illusion; I never lie!
Gosh! Such a straightforward message. But why? Probably because you are running from ‘THE UGLY TRUTH’ that you have been hit by AGING or approaching it. Criss-cross wrinkles across the forehead, dip between the eyebrows, wrinkles around the eyes and dull complexion are making you look older than you actually are. No matter you are college going, working your butt off or a busy mother who’s running after 4-5 children, this isn’t something to compromise with.
Old standbys like sleeping peacefully for 8 hours, drinking 8 glasses of water and applying SPF products are not always worth believing. What to believe then? Is there a one word answer for it? Luckily, there is and it is – NMN.
No matter the name sounds cute or complex to you, this molecule is all over the headlines and news of scientific studies & journals to an extent that its supplements fly off the shelves as soon as they make a place there. After experiments on rodents and yeast, NMN has made its way to the first human clinical trials in Tokyo, Japan.
Aging happens when a certain compound lacks in the body. As one reaches towards 50, their NAD+ level reduces to almost half of what it used to be when they were 20. Studies say that this molecule can be supplemented externally, which then helps the body to convert it into NAD+.
In the words of David Sinclair, Harvard Medical School Professor of Genetics and senior author on the study, “The aging process we discovered is like a married couple—when they are young, they communicate well, but over time, living in close quarters for many years, communication breaks down.” “And just like with a couple, restoring communication solved the problem.”
Just as protein rebuilds the muscles; NMN builds production of NAD+.
A number of minor processes happen inside the body cells and each cell has its own major process. As every cell has its unique function, they possess their matching processes and are clones of each other. This provides every cell its function and each cell abides by an identical process just like the cell that’s next to it. When continuing the process gets impossible for the cell, it fades and gets replaced.
Human body has its ‘own way’ to build and organize the intra-cellular processes. As an individual grows old, their body somehow loses its ability to adhere to this ‘particular way.’ As a result, optimal and healthy cells are not produced any longer and cells turn weak. Moreover, they don’t survive for long and cause troublesome issues.
NMN has potential to maintain the ability of cells to follow their ‘own way’ of producing healthy cells and ensuring good health throughout. Furthermore, the molecule is a precursor to NAD+. Our body contains an enzyme which is responsible to convert NMN into NAD+. It also enables the cells to be on their tract and follow their ‘own way.’
NAD+ lowers down with passage of time; hence, less energy is produced in the body. This eventually leads to break down of communication within the cells. Feeding body with NMN creates a positive effect onto the energy levels.
To consume NMN, there isn’t any need to search like mad because it is available right at the local grocery in the form of foods loaded with Vitamin B3. A list of items to get hands on includes:
|Wheat Germ||Whole Wheat Bread|
|Fish (Tuna, Swordfish, Salmon)||Groundnut|
IMPORTANT: The food items must belong to natural and organic sources.
Processed foods like processed grains, sugars foods, white flour, corn syrup and wheat products need to be avoided. NMN supplements can also be taken to intake the required value.
Being a NAD+ precursor supplement, NMN triggers sirtuins, which are naturally-occurring proteins that act like the anti-aging genes.
Nicotinamide mononucleotide ensures that water loss through skin’s outer layer, which then increases hydration. By playing these worthy roles, it keeps away from lines, wrinkles, loose skin, blotchiness, sebum formation and dark spots. An improved complexion with clear skin is the end result with NMN.
