NAD+, NMN & NR – Which one should you take?

Interested in boosting your NAD+ levels but confused about the differences between NAD+, NMN and NR? Let us simplify it for you and show you why supplementing with pure NAD+ is the best way to unlock your body’s full potential.

NAD+ (or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a molecule found in every cell in your body. It plays a crucial role in energy production, DNA repair, and regulating the aging process.

As we age, our NAD+ levels decrease1, leading to negative effects such as decreased energy production, impaired DNA repair, and an increased risk of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and diabetes. Supplementing with NAD+ may counteract some of these negative effects.

You may have heard of NMN and NR, and you’re wondering what makes them different from NAD+.

When you supplement with pure NAD+, you’re giving your body the molecule it needs to function at its best.  In contrast, NMN2 and NR3 are precursors to NAD+. Your body must convert them into NAD through a series of enzymatic reactions. Supplementing with NAD+ directly bypasses the need for these conversions and is therefore a superior way to boost NAD+ levels in the body.
