Difference between different NMN products with difference prices

Update:2023-08-07   

What's the difference between different NMN products with prices ranging from hundreds to tens of thousands?

Last time, we talked about the origins of NMN and its connection to NAD+. Today, we will focus on how to quickly identify the quality of NMN products in the crowded market and develop a discerning eye.

1.Aging and the Importance of NMN: As we age, our bodies experience a decline in functions, leading to visible changes in our skin, appearance, and a decrease in overall vitality. This fear of aging has driven scientific research and exploration into anti-aging solutions, and NMN is one of the results of these studies. Research has shown that NMN is an efficient and safe NAD+ supplement, with the levels of NAD+ decreasing as we age. This decline of  NAD+  is one of the leading causes of bodily function decline.

2. Differentiating NMN Brands Based on Production Methods: NMN products on the market differ greatly in quality and price. The main difference lies in the production methods of the raw materials. Currently, there are three main methods of NMN production:

3. Chemical synthesis: This method involves chemical reactions using various organic solvents as mediators. While it is a simple and cost-effective process, it is not generally approved for use as a food ingredient, so NMN produced  through chemical synthesis is not recommended for consumption.

 4. Fermentation: Similar to brewing, fermentation involves using microorganisms to produce NMN. However, this method is inefficient and costly for large-scale industrial production, resulting in higher prices for fermented Nproducts.


5. Enzymatic catalysis: By utilizing specific engineered enzymes, NMN can be produced through biological synthesis. This method offers high purity, a gentle production process, and improved production efficiency and product quality. Enzymatic catalysis is the most commonly used and safest method of NMN production.


6. NMN Content and Deceptive Marketing: Apart from production methods, the pricing differences of NMN products are mainly attributed to the NMN content. Many brands play with numbers and display the total NMN content    on their packaging, which can create a misconception that the individual NMN content per pill is also high.

It is crucial to consider the individual NMN content per pill and the overall price when evaluating products. Some brands label NMN content per serving or per meal instead, as the required NMN intake varies depending on age. For example, people aged 25-39 need around 150mg of NMN per day, while those aged 60 and above require approximately 600mg per day.

 

Conclusion: To differentiate NMN products:

1.Choose NMN produced through enzymatic catalysis for safety and effectiveness.

2.Look beyond the total NMN content and consider the individual content per pill and overall price.

3.Verify that NMN products have GMP certification or even higher standards like FDA or TGA certifications.

With this knowledge, you can be better equipped to identify and select NMN products. NMN's application goes beyond just anti-aging, and in future articles, we will continue to explore and broaden our understanding of NMN's uses in the field of health and its ongoing research and development.
