Several supplements have been shown to increase NAD+ levels in the human body, restoring them to a more youthful level. The two most popular are NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) and NR (nicotinamide riboside).
For those taking NMN in the hopes of reversing aging, how much makes sense to take?
“WHAT WOULD DAVID DO?”
Dr. David Sinclair has said that he takes 1 gram of NMN per day himself (plus resveratrol and trimethylglycine). And he’s said that the 250 mg most people are taking, is probably too low to have much of an effect. But he does not recommend an exact dose at this point. (
So how much should the rest of us be taking? Should we follow Dr. Sinclair’s lead, as many do, and try to duplicate his regimen? Or is there a way to tailor the dose more specifically to your own body weight and still get the benefits of NMN (without spending quite so much)? And — importantly — are there dangers if we take too much.
