So … apparently the FDA in its infinite wisdom has decided there might actually “be something” to the claims that NMN (a pre NAD+ substance that supposedly boosts NAD+ production and thereby mitochondrial health) supports longevity, so they’ve stopped sale of the product in the US. Of course. Just until they figure it out. Thanks so much, another useful protocol that, if it actually works, will require forced participation in the “big med / big pharma” hamster wheel.
Anyway, I picked up some sublingual tablets before the door slammed shut, but they’ve got erythritol and isomalt in them. SIGH. So, I guess, two questions:
How much of a big deal do you think the sugar / artificial sweetener are - would you take the supplement anyway? Ordinarily I’d say no, but as far as I know, I can’t get another source. It’s one pill about the size of a typical capsule per day, I don’t know how many grams of sugar that works out to.
If you have any experience with NMN, what’s your take on it? This is different from NR, which seems to have a lesser effect, and NAD+ itself, which can’t be utilized directly.
