How to take NMN powder - dosage and schedule

NMN (Nicotinamide mononucleotide) is a powerful ingredient against aging, weight loss, energy improvement, cardiac health, vision, and diabetes. It functions by fighting against cell damage and other oxidative stress. Although NMN has a lot of health-related benefits still there are no official regulations about its dosage forms, but the research on rats has declared it safe for human use and clinical trials on humans are under process.

Schedule to take NMN

The ideal dose of NMN is not yet defined as this is not approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or European Medicines Agency (EMA) but base on trial and error and research was done on animal models shows that it is ideal to take NMN twice a day. It is recommended that taking 1 capsules of 125mg twice a day is enough for a healthy boost of energy.

Best time to take NMN

The best time to take NMN is in the morning. Since NMN is a high source of immediate energy, we believe that taking it in the morning is beneficial to perform routine tasks.

Dosage of NMN

Dr. David Sinclair who is a renowned personality in the NMN industry itself takes 1g i.e. 1000mg of NMN in his daily routine. One of the modern studies shows that taking 2000mg of NMN is effective and has no side effects. Another study performed in Japan declared that 125mg of NMN twice a day for 8 weeks is good for health. There is still no data available on the long-term usage of NMN.

Different Dosage Forms of NMN

Different forms of NMN are available that includes:

Recent research has shown that taking NMN orally in a pill or powder form is very effective as it directly goes into the bloodstream and performs its action. On the other side capsular form of NMN is equally effective. The capsule protects the NMN from destruction from the gastric acid and slowly releases it into the blood.

Previous studies has been strong advocate of taking NMN sublingually (under the tongue) but modern science has rejected this theory and now it is believed that the oral form of NMN is more effective since it immediately boasts NAD+ levels in the blood. This is true on the discovery of SIc12a8 protein in the blood which absorbs NMN in the gut.

NMN energy boosting cycle

NMN immediately increases the level of NAD+ in the body. In about 60 minutes after taking the powder of NMN, your blood NAD+ will be increased. This NAD+ will then take 2-3weeks to fully perform its function and boost your energy level. The whole process works in a cyclic manner and benefits you accordingly. The minimum recommended dosage of NMN is 250mg but in case you need a high boost in your energy level you may take up to 1000mg of NMN which is about 3-7 capsules at once. Learn more about NAD+.
