Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)

or nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN)

There is some banter about which is the better NAD+ precursor, but I don’t think it really matters. They are interconverted in vivo and cost about the same…

NR has been studied in both humans and rodents whereas NMN research is primarily rodents. I’m usually biased toward human studies, but again, I don’t think it matters in this #context.

Why NAD+ ?

Because OMG all of the animal studies! It’s like resveratrol all over again…

oh wait…

But seriously, old mice given either NAD+ precursor look like young mice by nearly every measure. NR and NMN have never been directly compared, but both produce equally positive effects in the various rodent models in which they’ve been tested.

And I’m fairly well-convinced NAD+ levels do decline with age…

Anyone gonna try NR or NMN? Let me know in the comments!
