Today, we delve into the fascinating world of beta nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), a trending ingredient in the dietary supplement industry. With its potential to boost cellular health and longevity, NMN has garnered significant attention in recent years. In this blog post, we’ll explore the brief history of NMN’s use in supplements, highlight some industry news, and extend an invitation to our clients who require accurate measurements of NMN in their supplements or ingredients.
A Brief History of NMN in Supplements
NMN, a naturally occurring compound found in trace amounts in foods like broccoli, cabbage, and avocados, has gained popularity due to its role as a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+)[Ref 1]. NAD+ is a coenzyme essential for various cellular processes, including energy metabolism and DNA repair. As we age, NAD+ levels decline, which may contribute to age-related health issues.
In recent years, researchers and supplement manufacturers have been investigating the potential benefits of NMN supplementation to restore NAD+ levels and potentially slow down aging. Numerous animal studies have shown promising results, demonstrating improvements in metabolism, mitochondrial function, cardiovascular health, and cognitive function[Ref 1][Ref 2].
The NMN supplement market has experienced exponential growth, driven by the increasing demand for anti-aging and longevity products. The global Beta-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) market size is estimated to be worth USD 356.1 million in 2022 and is forecast to a readjusted size of USD 1075.5 million by 2028 with a CAGR of 20.2Percent during the forecast period 2022-2028 [Ref 3].
Researchers and companies are actively exploring NMN’s potential in human trials to further validate its benefits. Exciting studies are underway, examining NMN’s impact on age-related conditions, such as neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular health, and metabolic disorders. Stay tuned for groundbreaking updates as these studies progress.
