NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) is a coenzyme that participates in thousands of biological reaction processes in the human body, including energy metabolism, DNA repair, etc. Although the human body can synthesize NMN through food intake, as age increases, the synthesis rate of NMN gradually slows down and the amount synthesized gradually decreases, resulting in a decrease in NMN levels in the human body. In particular, the elderly people in their 70s and 80s have declined too much. Compared with when they were young, their living standards are pitifully small. This is closely related to aging and the occurrence of various diseases. Therefore, NMN needs to be supplemented.
So, how should we choose between NMN and PQQ?
Features of PQQ:
PQQ is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight free radical damage.
Research shows that PQQ may improve cognitive function, increase energy metabolism, and have a positive impact on cardiovascular health.
Features of NMN:
NMN is a precursor that increases levels of NAD+, which plays a key role in energy metabolism and DNA repair within cells.
Research shows that NMN may be beneficial in anti-aging, improving cell function, and improving metabolic health.
Human aging is closely related to the decrease in NAD+ content in the body. Therefore, the key to resisting aging is to increase the level of NAD+ in the body. As the precursor of NAD+, NMN plays a key role by converting it into NAD+. NAD+ is an important coenzyme that affects the activity of Sirtuins, which are involved in many aging-related cellular processes.
PQQ is a powerful oxidant discovered so far. Its unique feature is that it can improve the quantity and quality of mitochondria in aging cells, thereby slowing down the process of cell aging and achieving anti-aging purposes. In addition, PQQ can also scavenge free radicals, prevent them from oxidizing cells and causing cell aging, and play an anti-aging effect.
The anti-aging effects of PQQ and NMN are very good, and they can actually work together. One study found that taking NMN and PQQ together made animals more stamina, perform better exercise, and even promote muscle growth. This is not only due to their ability to increase the animal's energy metabolism, but also due to their synergistic antioxidant capacity.
