NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), NAM (nicotinamide) and NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide):
These three compounds are closely related and play an important role in metabolism, energy production and biochemical processes in our cells.
NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide):
NMN is a chemical compound that serves as a precursor molecule for NAD+. It is a molecule that can be converted to NAD+ in the body. NMN is often used as a dietary supplement, but it has the disadvantage of being too large to slip directly through the cell membrane. It must first be broken down into its component parts and reassembled inside the cell.
Nicotinamide is also a precursor of NAD+. It is a component of the NAD+ molecule and can be converted to NAD+ in the cell. It is small enough to be taken up directly by the cell through the cell membrane, taking the direct route to energy production. Nicotinamide is also known as vitamin B3 or niacinamide.
NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide):
NAD+ is a coenzyme that plays a critical role in many cellular metabolic processes. It serves as a transmitter and plays an important role in the conversion of food into energy. It is also involved in DNA repair and other important cellular processes. NAD+ levels can decline throughout life. Therefore, research interest
