Can NMN Boost Your Athletic Performance?

Can NMN Boost Your Athletic Performance?

Recent research into NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide)
suggests that we may have found a new key to unlocking athletic performance

In the most recent 2021 study, the effects of NMN were measured on “cardiovascular fitness in healthy amateur runners.”

This six-week study included 48 young and middle-aged runners that were separated into 4 dose-controlled groups. The groups took different doses of NMN daily varying from 0 to 600mg/day. They trained 5-6 times a week for about 60minutes a session.

The groups were given Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) before and after the 6-week experiment to assess the aerobic capacity of the participants.

The cardiopulmonary performance of the participants was
evaluated by CPET. Focusing mainly on VO2 levels, ventilatory parameters, metabolic parameters (respiratory exchange ratio, VT1, and VT2) and, exercise capacity parameters
(workload and power).

THE RESULT

NMN increased cardiovascular performance

Furthermore, to highlight the correlation between NMN and
increased cardiopulmonary endurance “the positive effect
was in a dose-dependent manner”.

This means that the more NMN was taken, the greater
the positive effect was.

BENEFITS OF NMN ON
RUNNING PERFORMANCE:
 

Stronger VT1
VT1 is the first ventilatory threshold where a person’s breathing requires more intensity.  In a nutshell, VT1 is the first instance of when you can no longer comfortably talk while exercising. Boosting VT1 basically gives your body a larger threshold to
exercise without getting out of breath.

VO2 & VO2 Max
Vo2 is just a measure of the volume (V) of oxygen (O2) you have in your body at any one time. The more intense your exercise, the more O2 your body requires. VO2 Max is when you reach a point in exercise where you can no longer work any harder. Your body has reached the maximum oxygen consumption level and so it has no more ability to “burn fuel” to work any harder.

This is often why VO2 max is considered to be the gold
standard for fitness measurement.

NMN & EXERCISE

The benefits of exercise are well documented and using
exercise to increase your health can improve:

Weight Control
- Risk of heart diseases
- Mental health and mood
