NMN FAQs

NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) is an organic molecule in DNA that is naturally produced by the body. It is found in every living cell of all life forms and is an intrinsic and constantly metabolized substance in the human body. NMN is part of the building blocks of RNA and DNA. NMN is the most direct precursor of coenzyme I (NAD+) which produces the energy that our cells need to function. NMN is directly converted to NAD+ by the body thus increasing our NAD+ levels.

Thus NMN is extremely important for our bodies in order to create NAD+.Given its central role in so many cellular processes, the benefits of NMN extend to nearly all body systems.NMN feeds into the production of NAD+. NAD+ is the most abundant molecule in the body (after H2O). NAD+ is necessary for providing sirtuins with the energy they need to repair our DNA and the health of mitochondria. Because NAD+ production in our bodies decreases with age, it is critical for healthy aging. Given its central role in so many cellular processes, the benefits of NMN extend to nearly all body systems.

  • Promotes Vascular Health and Blood Flow
  • Improves Muscle Endurance and Strength
  • May Help Protect Against Heart Disease
  • Lowers Risk of Obesity
  • Increases Mitochondrial Function
  • Enhances DNA Repair
  • Promotes Vascular Health and Blood Flow

According to recent studies, DNA damage is the leading cause of aging. Almost all cells have the ability to repair the damage by using NAD+. The body receives minimal amounts of NAD+ from some of the foods that we eat such as avocados, broccoli, cabbage, cucumber, et. al. However, NAD+ is mainly made in our body from a form of vitamin B3. In order for the NAD+ to enter our cells and repair our DNA, it must first be changed into NMN. This NMN then reverts back to NAD+ which repairs the damaged DNA. Every stage in which the enzyme is broken down, it loses effectiveness. The most effective source of longevity and health is pure NMN converted directly to NAD+.

NAD+ is an indispensable component of hundreds of enzymes (biocatalysts) including Sirtuins, dictating more than half of human metabolism:

  • Responsible for the production of more than 95% of the cellular energy
  • Signal transmission
  • Anti-aging; Longevity
  • DNA repair

Researchers have been doing clinical trials to investigate the safety and efficacy of the molecule in humans for years. These studies are producing amazing results of the positive effects of NMN and its abilities in improving health. Of course, the goal is to develop treatments that slow, stop or even reverse aging — which is key to the success of athletes.
  • NMN is not a drug!
  • NMN is an organic molecule in DNA that is naturally produced by the body.
  • It is safe for consumption
  • Our NMN is manufactured in NSF Certified facilities

NMN has been sold for years as a dietary supplement in the U.S. Because NMN has proven to be effective in healing, large pharmaceutical companies want to control it. They have filed with the FDA to test it as a compound in drugs to treat many diseases including Alzheimer’s and Diabetes. By law, anytime a supplement is being tested as a drug, the FDA cannot allow it to be sold as a dietary supplement until results are conclusive. However, because NMN is a naturally produced enzyme in the body, the dietary supplement industry is suing the FDA. Currently, the FDA is not stopping companies from selling NMN in the U.S. even though it is being tested as a drug.

Reflexiv+ NMN repairs DNA that has been damaged due to injury, strenuous exercise, illness, etc. and is the key to longevity. It has been shown to help athletes recover from injury quicker and has helped athletes sustain energy through single competitions as well as the long season. A younger, healthier body leads to a longer career!

​NMN is a product of Ribose and Nicotinamide and is a derivative of Niacin.

  • Ribose – simple sugar and carb that forms NRA
  • Nicotinamide – Form of Vitamin B3
  • Niacin – essential human nutrient and form of Vitamin B3

NMN is larger than NR, meaning it often needs to be broken down to fit into the cell. NR, when compared to other NAD+ precursors reigns supreme in efficiency. But give NMN a new door, one it can fit through, and it’s a whole new game. With Reflexiv+ NMN, there is no more need for NR supplements.

Reflexiv+ NMN is 99.9% starting active material pure and is able to directly transform into NAD+. After an athlete takes Reflexiv+ NMN, it is absorbed into the blood stream within 10 minutes and converted to NAD+ within 30 minutes!

NMN is actually a product of the United States. It wasn’t until late 2013 that the connection between NMN and longevity in the body was discovered. The new discovery led to possibilities of better immunity, longevity, and quicker recovery. But there were some problems:

  • Pure NMN was extremely difficult to produce and minimal. amounts were available to the public
  • NMN was extremely expensive and only the very wealthy could afford it. ($2,500 per gram)
  • It needed to be tested over time.

10 years later, NMN is a world-wide billion dollar industry and Reflexiv+ NMN-Sport is the purest, most effective NMN on the market.

No!! Not all NMN products are the same!

Purity: The most important aspect of NMN is the purity level. Many NMN distributors offer a product claiming it to be 99.4% or 99.7% pure. However, this isn’t entirely accurate. Third-party tests have shown that many NMN products have less than 50% NMN and many even have 0% NMN or harmful substances!   Reflexiv+ NMN is 99.9% starting active material pure. It is the most pure NMN in the world!

GMP, GRAS Certified: It is important to know where the NMN is produced. A pure product must come from a pure manufacturer. If the label doesn’t say GMP, GRAS certified, then it is not produced by a manufacturer that is compliant. Reflexiv+ NMN is manufactured here in the United States.

Cost vs. Quantity: Some NMN products can be found online for what seem to be inexpensive prices. Don’t let that fool you! When a product requires you to take a larger amount per dose, then that product doesn’t last as long and must be re-supplied more often. This causes the other brands to actually be more expensive and less effective than Reflexiv+ NMN.

The answer is YES! Reflexiv+ NMN is manufactured here in the U.S. Our products are held to the highest standards of production. We only produce pharma-grade products. This means that it is the highest quality NMN on the market.

Because other immediate release NMN capsules or powder products do not go through complex manufacturing processes like ours do, those products will not show much of “related compounds” if tested. Ours will.

What are related compounds that may be found in our products?
NR (Nicotinamide Riboside):

  • NMN and NR are both precursors to NAD+, but NMN is one step closer.
  • Both precursors safely and effectively increase NAD+ levels when taken as a supplement.
  • Different tissues and organs (including your microbiome) may prefer one precursor over the other.

NA (Nicotinamide). It is also a form of vitamin B3 that has been used as a vitamin supplement to treat arthritis and pellagra.

No. Though the terms “related compounds” and “Impurities” have been used interchangeably, they are not the same. Related compounds are the compounds that are related to the intended active component, while impurities can include related compounds as well as other contaminants.

NMN has been sold for years as a dietary supplement in the U.S. The FDA has issued a statement saying that NMN may currently not be sold as a supplement, citing its status as being under investigation as a drug. However, banning NMN’s sale is not currently being enforced. This statement is a huge declaration of support to the effectiveness of NMN on our health! Because NMN has proven to be so effective, large pharmaceutical companies want to control it. They have filed with the FDA to test it as a compound in drugs to treat many diseases including Alzheimer’s and Diabetes. By law, anytime a supplement is being tested as a drug, the FDA cannot allow it to be sold as a dietary supplement until results are conclusive. However, because NMN is a naturally produced enzyme in the body, the dietary supplement industry is suing the FDA. Currently, the FDA is not stopping companies from selling NMN in the U.S. even though it is being tested as a drug.

Taking human studies of efficacy and safety into consideration and calculating optimal NMN doses, the recommended dose that adults between 30 and 60 years old is to take 500 mg per day. People over age 65 can safely take 750 mg per day to maximize NMN’s benefits. However, tests in athletes and fitness-minded individuals of all ages have recently shown that taking 1000mg per day is optimal.
