NMN and spermidine from wheat germ
- Supports healthy aging of cells
- NMN is a NAD+ precursor
- NAD+ helps cells regulate energy metabolism, tissue formation, DNA repair, and gene expression
- Spermidine is a polyamine to induce autophagy
NAD+ or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a critical coenzyme found in every cell in the body. Meaning it will initiate or assist in hundreds of metabolic reactions. The decline in NAD+ levels is seen alongside a loss in the function of our cells, a natural function of aging. This means that their ability to make cell energy (called ATP) becomes less effective, while their ability to protect against (or repair) cell damage goes down.
Cells become more susceptible to damage from things you expose your body to, including the foods and beverages, environmental pollutants, UV damage, inflammation and infections, and chronic stress. The cumulative effect can be premature cell death.
A unique combination of NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) an active form of vitamin B3, and a polyamine called spermidine, enzymatically derived from wheat germ extract supports the healthy longevity of cells by increasing NAD+ and by ensuring cells are clean and damage free.
NMN, as a direct NAD+ precursor has been shown to enhance energy metabolism, improve mitochondrial metabolism and prevent age-linked changes in gene expression. Unlike another popular supplement nicotinamide ribonucleoside (NR), NMN is more water soluble and a direct precursor of NAD+.
Spermidine, derived from wheat germ belongs to a class of molecules called polyamines which are important for cell growth, cell repair, maintenance of transport channels called ion channels, and inducing autophagy or cellular cleanup. Like NAD+, we see polyamine levels decrease with age. Supplementing with spermidine has been shown to have healthy aging effects, by improving the health of cells and prolonging their lifespan. It has also been linked to improved heart health and reduced inflammation.
AOR creates this powerful cell-regenerating combination of NMN with spermidine. Offering effective daily doses in a single capsule.
