Put simply, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is a naturally occurring molecule that helps power your body.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is a type of molecule called a nucleotide. Nucleotides play many roles in your body, including as the building blocks of DNA.
Within your cells, NMN is converted into another molecule known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). Your body needs NAD for a variety of functions involved in metabolism and energy production.
You might think of NMN as raw material and NAD as the refined version that your body can actually use.
The amount of NAD your body can make depends on the amount of NMN available in your body.
