As we age, muscle tissue gradually loses its elasticity and strength, resulting in decreased muscle function and reduced exercise capacity. This muscle aging is closely related to physiological and environmental factors. However, as a vital molecule, NMN has been found to have the potential to delay muscle aging in recent years.
Muscle aging is caused by a combination of factors. First, cellular energy metabolism gradually declines with age, resulting in weakened muscle cell function. Second, the accumulation of inflammatory responses in muscle tissue increases, leading to increased release of inflammatory markers and further damage to muscle tissue. In addition, the accumulation of oxidative stress is also an important cause of muscle aging. Oxidative stress triggers increased production of free radicals that damage the DNA, protein, and lipid structures of cells, leading to damage to muscle tissue.
Mechanism of action of NMN in slowing muscle aging
As the precursor of NAD+ (coenzyme A dinucleotide), NMN affects the energy metabolism of muscle cells by increasing the synthesis of NAD+. Studies have found that by supplementing NMN, the level of NAD+ in cells can be increased, and the energy metabolism efficiency of cells can be enhanced, thereby slowing down the speed of muscle degeneration.
NMN also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Studies have shown that NMN can inhibit the release of inflammatory markers in muscle tissue and reduce the degree of inflammation. Inflammation is an important factor that causes muscle tissue damage and degeneration. By inhibiting the inflammatory response, NMN can protect the health of muscle tissue.
In addition, NMN can also delay muscle aging by reducing oxidative stress. Studies have shown that NMN has antioxidant effects, can neutralize free radicals and reduce the degree of oxidative stress. This is very important for protecting the DNA, protein and lipid structure of muscle cells, delaying the process of muscle aging.
How to use NMN correctly?
Although NMN has many benefits, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using NMN, be sure to consult a professional doctor's opinion to ensure it is safe and effective. In addition, maintaining good work and rest, diet and exercise habits, and learning to cope with stress reasonably are also important ways for us to better cope with stress.
