Studies have shown that NMN provides physiological benefits in overweight or obese adults in addition to weight loss. According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, NMN can lower total cholesterol, including so-called "bad" LDL cholesterol, and lower blood pressure, supporting the metabolic stabilizing effects of NMN.
1. NMN can reduce weight and lower cholesterol and blood pressure
To study the effects of NMN on body weight, researchers at Harvard Medical School gave middle-aged and elderly overweight or obese adults 1,000 mg of NMN twice daily for 28 days. Results showed that NMN subjects lost more than 6 pounds compared to participants who did not receive NMN for 28 days. This finding suggests that NMN supplementation may promote metabolic functional benefits.
The researchers also assessed the effect of NMN on cardiovascular health by examining blood cholesterol levels. The results showed that NMN supplementation lowered total and LDL cholesterol levels, which can lead to heart-related problems. These findings support the idea that NMN can have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system by lowering cholesterol levels.
In addition, researchers at Harvard Medical School studied whether NMN improves heart function by measuring diastolic and systolic blood pressure, and found that NMN can specifically reduce diastolic blood pressure, which is a key factor in high blood pressure, while systolic blood pressure is not affected. These results suggest that NMN supplementation may be a potential strategy to reduce hypertension in overweight and obese adults.
NAD+ is an essential coenzyme for the human body to carry out physiological activities, and its direct precursor NMN has been widely used. NAD+ and NMN have been proven to have positive effects on various diseases.
