Weight vs volume

Post by tecumseh18 » Thu Dec 19, 2019 11:48 am

I have the 12 gram bottles of NMN powder. My plan is to take 1 gram per day sublingually, but it just occurred to me, should that be one gram (~1/4 tsp) by volume, or an actual gram of weight?

Sorry if this has been covered before.

ALso, for the David Sinclair-philes in here, he often says he mixes his trans-resveratrol in fat (yogurt) for absorption purposes. I'm not a big dairy guy. Do you think mizing it with a tablespoon of coconut oil should be equally effective?

I think the 1/4 tsp of NMN is just approximately 1 gram right? You don't need to be super accurate here. And yes, other kinds of fat just works the same.

Yes, as Albert said. You can mix it with any fat. It is possible that the emulsion of fat-water-lecithin that is "yogurt" somehow protects and transport resveratrol in the GI tract but you could simulate that by having resveratrol with any mixed meal containing fat.

I would recommend choosing anti-inflammatory monounsaturated olive oil that is heart-healthy and associated with longevity instead of coconut oil though.

Have you taken NAD+/NMN before? You might consider starting at a lower dose and working your way up

I've taken mine with both coconut oil and yogurt and both feel the same to me. I guess it's a matter of actual delivery and how beneficial it is. But i've not noticed any difference between the two.

200mg Resveratrol

Yes, 1/4 tsp is the equivalent of 1 gram, BY VOLUME. But I suspect that when people (like Sinclair, who swallows it in pills) say they take 1 gram per day, it's by weight. Is that assumption correct? If so, how what is the volume of one gram (by weight) of NMN. One quarter tsp? Two quarter tsps?

Volume is about 1/4 teaspoon. I some how feel better taking b/w 500 and 600 mg of NMN along with 800 mg of resveratrol, green tea extract capsules, berberine, astaxanthin...

Maybe i want my NMN supply to last longer, but i noticed when i got to about 500mg per day that i could feel a difference in energy, recovery time, even general strength, so I am comfortable just taking a bit more than that, but not a full gram.

When all else fails, call the manufacturer. ABN just confirmed to me that 1 teaspoon of NMN power weighs one gram (i.e. the David Sinclair dose). Wow, that's a lot of powder.

1 g is 1 g, regardless of volume.

It seems that 1 g have the volume of about 5 ml then, according to ABN. My scale doesn't have 0.1 g precision.

We take it with full fat milk, but since dairy isn't your thing, how about having it with a handful of nuts? Some good fats in nuts, I think?
