Resveratrol supplementation effectively protected mice against age-related muscle mass loss, heart cell enlargement, and motor dysfunction.
A team of scientists from Harvard Medical School discovered a method to distinguish young cells from old and senescent cells in real time. This allowed them to quickly screen the effect of different molecules on cellular health.
Using this method, they were able to identify 6 different combinations of molecules that can be used to “reset” the age of cells to a youthful, healthy state.
This new study found that for the first time that NMN supplementation in humans increases levels of NMN in blood plasma.
All previous studies with NMN and NR have not been able to detect measurable increase in blood levels of NMN or NR.
They also found increased levels of NAD+ and insulin levels.
NR injections boosted NAD+ levels in skeletal muscle and white adipose tissue.
A ~140% increase in muscle NAD+ was observed after 7 days of IV administration of NR. Oral administration failed to increase NAD+ levels compared to the control group (figure A).
