NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) Chemical (99.8% purity)
We use the same supplier as expert David Sinclair’s team, Harvard University.
Our NMN ships from Ireland which means that we must fully comply with EU regulations about how we describe our products. At the time of writing (2022), NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) is only permitted in food and/or supplements in Japan and the USA. In Europe, NMN can only be sold as a chemical not suitable for human consumption, so we must supply it for research and laboratory use only.
Legal disclaimer: we strongly advise you to do your own research in relation to this product and we are not recommending or advising its use. Any company selling NMN as a supplement in Europe is in breach of European law; a recent US study found most NMN sold online is fake. So be careful where you buy your NMN (including the UK which is no longer in the EU). If it ships from an EU country, then its much more likely to be genuine and have an accurate description.
Since Harvard professor David Sinclair published his book "Lifespan: Why We Age – and Why We Don’t Have To" in September 2019, we've spent years trying to source the ingredients he takes himself. It does change over time, so we suggest you subscribe to his Lifespan podcast; here is one of the best ones: "YouTube NMN, NR, Resveratrol, Met & Other Longevity Molecules | Lifespan with Dr. David Sinclair"; Google it.
The biggest problem we encountered is that there are top quality suppliers, poor quality suppliers, and complete fakes. And its almost impossible to figure it out. Even the best known US suppliers have some dubious web sites promoting links to their products.
So its very difficult to source the best quality components.
We fully expect Harvard to use the best quality NMN, and that this is also the source of NMN that David uses himself. He won't say, and he doesn't endorse any brand or manufacturer.
So we tracked down the company that supplies Harvard, and this is where our NMN comes from.
If you've been using other NMN which can be a bit cheaper, you'll probably notice a substantial difference in quality. We've tried NMN from the major manufacturers and this is our experience. Our NMN is manufactured using a fully enzymatic catalytic method. Less solvents and impurities etc.
Certificates of analysis are included below in chronological order. Compare the solvent (Ethanol) figure with other manufacturers: 0.0052% is equivalent to 52 ppm and this is up to 10 times lower than other manufacturers. Same with the other important ones; for our current batch. "Conform" means less than:
As (arsenic): 0.01ppm
Hg (mercury): 0.001ppm
Cd (cadmium): 0.003ppm
Top Quality Food Grade Packaging
Our NMN ships from Galway, Ireland in handy 30 gram packages so that you can keep a month's supply to hand, and freeze or refrigerate the rest. Each package consists or a resealable clear food grade plastic bag, inside a sealed aluminium foil pack which can also be resealed.
