A self-professed “NMN” expert has tested the three top-selling brands of NMN on Amazon for quality and purity and has posted his results in a stunning YouTube video.
Discovered by David Sinclair Ph.D., NMN or Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is the pre-cursor to NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide), NAD is found in nearly all our living cells. NAD is essential for sustaining life.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide NAD+ is a coenzyme essential for life. Next to water, NAD+ is the most abundant molecule in the body. NAD+ facilitates all of the processes that allow your cells to produce the energy you need to survive. Without NAD+, you would quickly die. In fact, modern aging research has discovered that the level of NAD+ in your body steadily decreases as you age. By the time we are 50 years old, for most of us, our NAD+ levels are about half of what they were when we were 20.
NAD is biologically unstable, which makes it unsuitable for oral supplementation. Fortunately, it is easy to restore our cellular NAD levels using NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) or NR (Nicotinamide Riboside), which convert to NAD when it is in the cell. These NAD boosting supplements can be purchased from reputable companies such as Do Not Age, Alive by Science, and Pro-health Longevity; however, there are many unscrupulous companies selling fake NMN, so buyer beware.
The YouTube Channel known as “My NMN Experiment” claims to have conducted an “independent third party test” for purity of the top three recommendations that come up as “Amazon’s Choice” on Amazon when searching for “NMN supplies.”
Unfortunately, the brands he tested are mostly crap.

How Can NMN Improve Longevity?
Studies have found a number of ways that NMN supplementation can improve longevity, such as:
- NMN boosts energy supply in aging cells.
- NMN helps in fighting metabolic diseases.
- NMN enhances red blood cell production and improves blood flow.
Anyone who is committed to an “antiaging lifestyle” should add an NMN supplement to their health and fitness routine. NMN enhances the benefits you get from working out and eating right.
