• How much NMN should people be taking to reverse the aging process?
  • The answer, according to the authors of a recent research study, is  8 mg of NMN per kg of body weight per day.
  • From the study: “Given that 100 mg/kg/day of NMN was able to mitigate most age-associated physiological declines in mice, an equivalent surface area dose for humans would be ~8 mg/kg/day, providing hope to translate our findings to humans.”

If the authors are correct, then to find how much NMN you need to take, you would first need to find your weight in kg, then multiply by 8. 

  • If you measure your weight in pounds, convert pounds to kg.
  • To do this, take your weight in pounds and multiply it x 0.453592.
  • Then multiply the answer x 8.
  • In my own case, I weigh 180 pounds. 180 x 0.453592=81.
  • 81 x 8=648.
  • This means I would need to take 648 mg/day (plus some resveratrol to activate it).

A friend of mine who also takes NMN weighs 120 pounds (about 54 kg). 54 x 8=432. So if this study’s conclusions are accurate, 432 mg/day would be enough for her to achieve the benefits experienced by the lab animals in the study. (She would need four 125 mg. capsules to get this amount)
