What's NMN And Its Source?
- Oct 14, 2020 -

NMN powder (nicotinamide mononucleotide), that is is a naturally occurring biologically active nucleotide. NMN has two irregular forms, α, and β; β isomers are the active form of NMN with a molecular weight It is 334.221 g/mol.

Because nicotinamide is one kind of Vitamin B3 , so NMN belongs to the category of vitamin B derivatives. It is widely involved in many biochemical reactions of the human body and is closely related to immunity and metabolism.

What are the sources of NMN?

NMN powder is widely distributed in daily food, vegetables such as broccoli (0.25–1.12mg NMN/100gm) and Chinese cabbage (0.0–0.90 mg NMN/100 gm), fruits such as avocado (0.36–1.60 mg NMN/100 gm), Tomatoes (0.26–0.30 mg NMN/100 gm), meats such as raw beef (0.06–0.42 mg NMN/100 gm) are rich in NMN.

Natural source has NMN

NMN can also be synthesized by endogenous substances: 1 molecule of nicotinamide and 1 molecule of 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) are catalyzed by nicotinamide phosphoribosyl transferase (NAMPT or NAMPRT) to generate 1 molecule of NMN 1 molecule of pyrophosphate (PPi). In addition to nicotinamide, NMN can be generated, and 1 molecule of nicotinamide riboside (NR) is phosphorylated under the catalysis of nicotinamide riboside kinase (NRK) to generate 1 molecule of NMN.
