What kind of substance is that?

NMN, which is short for nicotinamide mononucleotide, is a substance generated naturally in your body from vitamin B3 and plays a vital role in the activity of the cells.
NMN is a precursor of NAD (nicotinamide dinucleotide), a coenzyme that exists in the cells of all organisms. NMN is created in your body from vitamin B3 naturally, but your body gradually loses its ability to generate it as you get older.
In 2011, a world authority on NMN, Professor Shin-ichiro Imai (Washington University in St. Louis, Department of Behavioral Biology, School of Medicine, Missouri, US), reported its existence and effects.

What foods are rich in NMN?

NMN is contained in vegetables like edamame, broccoli or avocado, fruits and seeds, among others. However, with age we lose our ability to create NMN, and the amount of NMN we can receive from our diet is just not enough.
If you want to take 150 mg of NMN, you would need to ingest 12000 edamame beans or 2400 heads of broccoli
, which is obviously far beyond what your stomach can take, so the best you can do is turning to NMN supplements and products.

Applications of NMN

NMN can have anti-aging effects. If it acts on certain genes, it could prevent aging, and rejuvenate. These genes are the sirtuins,the longevity genes, and they exist all over your body. We all have them, andsirtuin genesare considered to prevent aging and prolong lifespan. Please refer to the section regarding the main effects of NMN that research expects to unveil.

Inhibition of body weight

Inhibition of bone density decrease

Improvement of
insulin sensitivity

Inhibition of decline of cognitive functions

Anti-aging action

The results of NMN research, which is ongoing at a global scale, are in the spotlight because this is a next-generation component that could rejuvenate us from a genetic level as it provides energy to the sirtuin genes.

What’s the effective way 
to take NMN?

The world-leading authority on NMN, Professor Shin-ichiro Imai thinks it is reasonable to take 300-500 mg of NMN per day. He says he could verify the effects with an intake of 250 mg per day in his first clinical trial carried out at Washington University, but this does not necessarily mean effects could be obtained with a higher dose.
Also, NAD fluctuates to suit our circadian rhythm (our body clock), so according to Professor Imai, it is a good idea to take NMN capsules when we are the most active, which is usually some time between early morning to midday.

3 ways to take 300 mg
of NMN per day

24000 to 30000 beans

4800 to 6000 heads

According to various research institutes, the purity of our NMN is 99% or higher, and it has also been confirmed that it is highly safe for both humans and rodents. Only one other company in the world is offering such high-purity NMN nutraceuticals (as of April 2022).

What are the risks related to optical isomers?

For your safety and peace of mind, Mirai Lab's products do not contain any α-NMN at all. Our NMN is manufactured accoding to a special, precise method so that the result is exclusively full β-NMN.
For more information,please see Mirai Lab's NMN substance

What's the β-NMN that you use?

There are two types of NMN, α-NMN and β-NMN, which have different molecular structures.

The molecules α-NMN and β-NMN are called optical isomers because they have the same type and number of atoms, but the connections beetween them point at different directions.
The NMN we need by nature is β-NMN.
β-NMN is produced by the human body, while unnecessary α-NMN is not.
Many companies manufacture NMN following a cheap process of chemical synthesis with the only goal of reducing costs. When they do that, the possibility of ending up with a mixture of α-NMN and β-NMN is very high. Please note that β-NMN, without a trace of α-NMN, can only be produced through a very precise manufacturing process.
Mirai Lab's NMN supplement is a high quality product containing only β-NMN.
For more information, please see Mirai Lab's NMN substance.

Do you conduct human medical studies?

Mirai Lab's NMN was the first in the world to be used in a safety test on humans. In addition to demonstrating its safety, we confirmed the expression of the sirtuin genes, an increase in melatonin and other growth hormones in a long-term (24-week) administration clinical study at Hiroshima University School of Medicine.
