Does NMN research bring new possibilities for eye health?

Author: GSHWORLD Release time: 2023-06-15 Column: Product News


In recent years, NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) has attracted much attention as an anti-aging substance. A recent study found that NMN not only enhances the human immune system, but also protects the optic nerve and reduces retinal damage.

1、 Protection of the optic nerve by NMN

As one of the main media for transmitting visual information in the human body, the optic nerve can cause visual impairment or even blindness when subjected to certain stimuli and injuries. Research has shown that NMN can protect the optic nerve and reduce retinal damage through multiple pathways.

Firstly, NMN can promote the generation of NAD+in optic nerve cells, thereby improving the energy metabolism level of cells and enhancing the self repair and regeneration ability of optic nerve cells. At the same time, NMN can also regulate various biological processes in optic nerve cells, such as reducing oxidative stress and neuroinflammatory reactions, inhibiting cell apoptosis and mitochondrial dysfunction, thereby significantly improving retinal function, enhancing the sensitivity and contrast of the eyes to light.


In addition, NMN can also improve the mitochondrial function of optic nerve cells, enhance intracellular ATP production, maintain normal metabolic needs of cells, maintain cell growth and regeneration ability, and accelerate the speed of optic nerve cell repair damage.

Finally, NMN can also regulate the signal transmission of calcium ions in optic nerve cells. By affecting the expression and function of SWELL1 and TRPM3 plasma channels, it can regulate the balance of ions inside and outside the cells, and prevent cell death and retinal damage caused by the disordered release of calcium ions.

In summary, NMN has the potential to become a sustainable eye health product by protecting the optic nerve and reducing retinal damage through various pathways.

2、 Related research

Professor David Sinclair, the godfather of NMN at Harvard University, wrote in the top scientific journal AGING that NMN has a strong protective effect on the optic nerve and can significantly inhibit the further deterioration of diseases such as retinal detachment.

It is particularly noteworthy that the scientific community has previously believed that the neuroprotective effect of NMN stems from restoring declining NAD+levels to a healthy state, emphasizing the importance of "identifying and filling gaps". However, Sinclair found in this study that NMN is actually "more beneficial" in specific situations, and supplementing with additional NMN can further reduce retinal damage.

3、 Prospects for the Application of NMN

The protective effects of NMN on the optic nerve and the reduction of retinal damage have attracted widespread attention and discussion. Many scientific studies have attempted to explore the biological characteristics and mechanisms of NMN in vivo, in vitro, and in animal models. It is expected that there will be more research and application development in the future.


NMN is not only beneficial for eye health, but also plays an important role in protecting physical health. NMN is also widely used in the production of various health products because of its multiple effects of anti-aging, repairing damage, enhancing immunity, etc. In the future, improvements and innovations in NMN's field of use expansion, synthesis technology optimization, and other aspects will significantly enhance its application value in protecting the optic nerve and eye health, bringing more beneficial effects.

In summary, the potential of NMN in protecting eye health deserves full attention, and the development of related research and applications of NMN will help people better protect their visual health.
