Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is a derivative of Niacin. Niacin is a form of vitamin B3 and is also known as nicotinic acid. Vitamin B3 is one of 13 essential vitamins our bodies need.Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is known as a precursor to NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), NAD+ is a coenzyme in all living cells and plays a role in processes such as metabolism to DNA repair. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is a critical component in the production of NAD+ because the body converts Nicotinamide Mononucleotide into NAD+. Since NAD+ levels are critical for keeping the mitochondria working at optimal levels, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is viewed as one of the more important compounds in regards to maintaining cellular health.
There are a few differences between Nicotinamide Mononucleotide vs Nicotinamide Riboside. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is not considered a form of vitamin B3 while Nicotinamide Riboside has shown to be a proven form of vitamin B3. In terms of structure, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide molecules are larger and weigh more than Nicotinamide riboside molecules. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide has shown positive effects on NAD+ levels in animal models and is currently being tested in humans.
