People are living longer than ever before. But research shows that, for many of us, our health is often not sustained long enough to live those extra years to the fullest. Here, we explore the concept of healthspan, and how optimizing your body’s natural resources can help you live in better health for longer. •    What is healthspan? •    Why is healthy aging important?•    The role of NAD+ in healthspan•    How to boost NAD+ for healthy aging•    Better health for longer with NMN•    Healthy habits last a lifetime What is healthspan? Healthspan is the period of life spent in good health free from the chronic diseases and disabilities of aging.Until the late 20th century, lifespan was the gold-standard indication of...

Study shows NMN is effective in humans

The quest to fully understand the cellular mechanisms responsible for metabolic health was advanced significantly by the publication in April 2021 of a study proving the efficacy on NMN supplementation in humans. The study, undertaken by Scientists from Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in St. Louis, showed that NMN increases blood cell NAD+ levels and improves muscle insulin sensitivity and structure in aged, prediabetic women.Elevant Chief Scientist Dr. Alessia Grozio, who herself has also published groundbreaking NMN research as part of a team at WUSM, explains the key elements of this study that has further highlighted the effects of NMN on human health. Dr. Grozio, do the results of this study prove the efficacy of NMN in humans? Yes....

‘Pure’ NMN – the five myths about NMN purity you shouldn’t fall for

Claims about purity often don’t tell the full story when it comes discovering the health benefits of this important molecule. Awareness of NMN supplements as an easy, accessible method of supporting wellbeing, energy and healthy aging has grown rapidly as the body of scientific research around it expands. Along with this increased awareness has come an explosion in demand. The global NMN market, already worth more than $100 million a year, is forecast to increase by almost ten per cent a year for the next five years.This has led to a raft of new brands offering NMN supplements, with many promoting their product using claims like ‘99% pure NMN’, ‘only pure NMN’, or ‘purest NMN available’. If you’ve ever searched...

NMN ameliorates age-associated physiological decline

BLOG March 22, 2021 NMN ameliorates age-associated physiological decline NMN ameliorates age-associated physiological decline Our bodies have been creating NMN for millennia, yet only now are we arebeginning to understand the role this vital molecule plays in health andlongevity. At Seneque, our extensive program of clinical trials is analyzingfor the first time in humans the effects of NMN on several pathophysiologiesassociated with the aging process. Our research isadvancing the path forged by groundbreaking preclinical research thatestablished proof-of-concept of NMN’s therapeutic potential. Foundational to ourongoing progress has been research undertaken by scientists at WashingtonUniversity School of Medicine (WUSM), which showed that long-termadministration of NMN is remarkably capable of ameliorating age-associatedphysiological decline in mice [1].   Pioneering NMN research The 2016 study...
