Taking extra NMN during Corona virus

I'm taking a little extra dose during this Corona virus because it won't hurt and supposed to help the immune system.

Anyone know if this really helps against Corona type virus?

I actually did a NAD IV a month or 2 ago, that's probably worn off by now. Didn't like the feeling of the IV drip through, gonna stick with the sublinguals.

To date, we only have one published human study on NMN and that was mainly looking at the acute toxicity after ONE dose. So there is no human data on NMN with regards to infection rates or how it may affect immunity.

Keeping social distance, washing your hands and not touching your face lessens the risk of getting infected.

Yup, I agree, back to basics! :D

I found this interesting thread where others have thought the same thing in regards to NMN helping to fight the virus:

Cool thanks for the responses, the reddit post is good.

Low sample size, but my wife and kid got the flu a few months ago, I didn't. My friend also the same exact thing, he only does IV drips with nad. Way to low of a sample size, but interesting.

The way the virus is spreading worldwide and the implications from it make it worthwhile to try possible alternative solutions especially as we now know that there is no medical intervention apart from personal hygiene and keeping minimum contact with people...

In China they use antiretroviral HIV-drugs when people get hospitalised. I believe they do in all other countries too, off-label.

I have been on NMN the past 9 months and have not been sick, on this forum many if not all people that post who boost NAD report the same. For me through the flu season with nothing although there we a couple of times I felt something coming, thought maybe, but then in the end all good! This quote from David Sinclar provides some great insight.

"David: Oh, I absolutely do. I think you're probably right in thinking along the same lines that as you get older, you're losing the ability to make NAD, but you're also chewing it up. And as it gets worse and worse as you get older, the immune system is a big drain on NAD, and actually, so is DNA repair with the activation of PARPs. And once you drain NAD a little bit, then your PARPs and your immune system won't work, but then they'll need more NAD because you'll get more damage."
From: https://www.foundmyfitness.com/episodes/david-sinclair

I think Corona virus chews up a lot of NAD, the less NAD you have the more likely you will die anyway. Example, kids almost seem to be immune (all full of NAD) vs people that are older or compromised health insert here diabetes, obese, smoker, just old, etc = reduced NAD and higher risk of significant impacts again worst case being death.

I agree with Fred. Use common sense, do not panic and wash your hands.

Yes as Fred said there are no studies out yet on NMN or NAD and how it affects the immune system. Wash your hands alot avoid human contact as much as possible. As for me this is impossible to do as I have to touch every patient that I see and thats around 60 per day. I would take alot of vit C right now. 3000mg x2 per day.
