How powerful are skincare products containing NMN?

The desire to be beautiful is universal, especially among women. Regardless of their age, women desire to maintain their youthful appearance and defy the aging process. However, as women age, they may encounter skin aging issues. This is primarily caused by the influence of life stress and the natural process of aging, which leads to disrupted gene expression within the body's cells. The essential gene factor responsible for cellular repair, NAD+, decreases significantly, resulting in a loss of self-repair and regeneration capabilities in the cells. This leads to dull, lackluster skin that appears older than one's actual age.

 01 How does the skin age?

 The main factors that contribute to skin aging are two: intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.

  Intrinsic aging refers to the natural aging of the skin that occurs with age. It is characterized by thinning and dullness of the skin, the appearance of fine lines, degradation of elastic tissues, skin sagging, and reduced sebum secretion, mainly manifesting as atrophic changes.

  Extrinsic aging is primarily caused by photoaging due to sun exposure (which also includes external environmental factors such as air pollution, smoking, and poor nutrition). It is characterized by wrinkles, skin sagging, dryness, roughness, formation of pigmentation spots, deepening of expression lines, and drooping eyelids.

  Conventional anti-aging methods can only act on the surface of the skin and are insufficient to address the deep intrinsic aging of the skin. This is where more advanced and powerful approaches are needed.

 In advanced anti-aging thinking, it is necessary to not only combat extrinsic aging but also address intrinsic aging from within. So, how can we fight aging from the inside out?

 The answer is: NMN can repair DNA and repair damaged genes in the skin, achieving anti-aging at the genetic level!

02 What is NMN?

NMN, also known as beta-nicotinamide mononucleotide, is the precursor of NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide), and its function is realized through NAD+. NAD+ is not only an important raw material for DNA repair systems but also a critical communication factor between the cell nucleus and mitochondria. Its content is closely related to the factor activity that has the potential to extend lifespan and inhibit aging.

As age increases, the level of NAD+ in the body gradually decreases. When NAD+ decreases, degenerative symptoms such as muscle degradation, cognitive decline, wrinkle formation, darkening of pigmentation, and hair loss occur, commonly known as "aging" in the traditional sense.

To slow down aging and increase the level of NAD+ in the body is the key. However, NAD+ has a large molecular weight, making exogenous NAD+ difficult to be directly absorbed and utilized by the body. Various precursor substances of NAD+, on the other hand, can be absorbed to varying degrees and converted into NAD+ in the body.

Research has shown that NMN directly promotes self-generating NAD+ in the body and is an ideal pathway for supplementing NAD+ 

03 The Key to NAD+ in Inhibiting Aging

NAD+ exists in every cell of the human body and is involved in thousands of reactions. It is an important coenzyme in the tricarboxylic acid cycle and can promote the metabolism of sugars, fats, and amino acids, participating in energy synthesis. NAD+ is also the sole substrate for many consuming enzymes (such as DNA repair enzyme PARR, longevity protein Sirtuins, and cyclic ADP-ribose synthesis enzyme CD38/157), playing a crucial role in the physiological activities of the human body.

NAD+ can regulate genes and genomes that control aging in cells, weaken or even shut down some aging genes, effectively delaying the aging process. Because the level of NAD+ in the body can determine the length of human lifespan, NAD+ is referred to as the "longevity factor" in the scientific community.

In recent decades, hundreds of chemists, biologists, and clinical doctors have conducted extensive research on NAD+. Numerous scientific papers on NAD+ anti-aging research have been published in top academic journals worldwide. Many scientists unanimously believe that NAD+ is the most important substance for maintaining youthfulness in the human body, and increasing NAD+ levels can delay the aging process in the body.

04 The Skincare Benefits of NMN

Improves skin smoothness and elasticity: NMN can promote the metabolism and proliferation of skin cells, increase collagen synthesis, thereby improving skin elasticity and smoothness.

Inhibits skin pigmentation: NMN can inhibit the activity of tyrosinase, reduce melanin synthesis, and help improve uneven skin tone and pigmentation.

Alleviates skin inflammation: NMN can regulate the immune response of skin cells, reduce inflammation, and help alleviate problems such as sensitivity, redness, and acne.

Promotes skin repair and regeneration: NMN can promote DNA repair and regeneration of cells, helping to repair damaged skin cells and reduce skin aging and damage.
