So you spend your money on NMN but how do you really know if it's working or not?
Answer (according to the theory): you get your NAD levels tested before and after use and hopefully your NAD levels have returned to youthful levels.
But how do you get your NAD levels tested?
I asked my local doctor, and called a pathology lab for a NAD assay but they said they didn't offer it. Has anyone actually found a way to get NAD levels tested?
As much as I'd like to believe it works, I want to at least know if it's doing what it's supposed to be.
I'm from this area! Definitely getting my levels tested next time I go visit family
It could be compared to people who take a certain type of anti-depressant, and SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) and see if your Serotonin levels increase - there is no such test.
So you need to research the researchers. I was actually stunned when Dr. Sinclair came right out and said he consumed NMN every day. He is not a sales rep for NMN; he is just a guy who has spent over 20 years researching diet exercise and aging, and beginning with Resveratrol (research that has almost universal recognition) has made these huge discoveries.
I have taken Nasal NAD+ for 2 months, after doing my own homework, and i am not going to pretend i didn't make a leap of faith, although it is more of an educated guess-based move. There are certainly no bad effects, and if i didn't know any better, I'd say i am feeling generally better, and have even lost a bit of weight. But this is not a short term program, this is really about life extension to me.
Resveratrol and NMN are two things that i am willing to take based on what i have read and watched.
My real age is rising 70.
As I said in a previous post, I run 100 meters in just under 14 seconds so something is having a dramatic influence on helping the body perform at this level at a later stage in life. Genetics play a big part but I don’t believe any placebo effect could initiate the changes that I am experiencing. I’m looking forward to where this journey takes me..
