Please email us your questions; we will do our very best to respond promptly and post the answers here.
A: NMN (aka nicotinamide mononucleotide, beta NMN, and beta nicotinamide mononucleotide) is naturally present in vegetables (avocados, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers etc). Its also present in fruits. But only in small quantities. NMN is a precursor to NAD+ which means that it helps our bodies to create NAD+. NAD+ is an essential molecule involved in energy production, DNA repair, and cellular ageing processes.
A: Our suppliers supplied Harvard; they have an excellent reputation to protect. We publish both their analysis and also 3rd party independent analysis. No business will reveal where they source their products. Up to 70% of online NMN is fake; Google it. Beware of anyone who says their NMN is made in the UK, or Europe; legally, they can say this if they simple re-pack or even just re-label NMN, but it's misleading in our opinion. We could claim that LifePowders NMN is made in Ireland because we re-label it here, but we don't think that would be ethical. Our Resveratrol is made in Europe, and is the highest quality in the world in our opinion; there are different versions but we won't sell the cheaper ones. Once again, to compare any of our products with others, just try them!
A: NMN had been sold in the USA as an approved supplement (until circa Nov 2022), but has since been withdrawn because it is currently being investigated as a medicine. This means that it may only be available as a prescription drug in the future. It has never been approved in Europe as a supplement. We must sell it as a chemical. Anybody who sells it as a supplement in Europe is not acting legally; reputable NMN suppliers in Europe are selling it as a chemical. If you can buy it as a supplement in Europe (2023), beware!
A: We get a lot of questions like this. It's mostly a marketing strategy whereby companies are trying to get ahead by selling something "better". There are many interviews with David Sinclair where he supports what he said in his book. We just do what he says there, and ignore all the hyper marketing stuff.
A: Legally, we can't advise an NMN dosage as it's not yet an approved supplement in Europe. Our Resveratrol is approved in the EU up to a half gram per day.
A: Legally, we can't advise you to take NMN at all as it's not yet an approved supplement in Europe. However, David Sinclair has addressed this question in blogs and interviews. At the time of writing, he doesn't appear to take a view on this one way or another. Beware of companies who sell smaller doses of NMN and advise sublingual use to achieve the same results.
A: Legally, we can't advise on this as its not yet an approved supplement in Europe. Recent human studies indicate that NMN is well tolerated, but some may experience mild side effects such as tummy problems. Please see our Terms and Conditions as we can not advise on this.
A: Since its not yet approved as a supplement in the EU, we can’t advise you to take it. It is water soluble. Google David Sinclair!
A: LifePowders prioritizes sourcing high-quality NMN, and we provide Certificates of Analysis for each batch to ensure purity and quality, from the manufacturer and also from USA independent labs. We use the same manufacturer that supplied Harvard for David Sinclair’s research. But that’s only the beginning. Our NMN is refined using alcohol instead of nasty chemicals, you won’t always see this in the certificates of analysis.
A: LifePowders NMN powder should be placed in a cool, dry place. After opening, keep the inner pouch away from direct sunlight and moisture for up to 6 months. If you freeze our NMN, it will last for up to 2 years. See packaging for more information.
A: NMN cannot be legally sold as a supplement in the EU, as it is not yet approved for this purpose. Therefore, genuine European NMN suppliers, including LifePowders, must sell NMN as a chemical.
A: Yes, our NMN and Resveratrol are both tested for contaminants to ensure safety and purity. We provide full manufacturer and independent test analysis.
A: We can’t advise taking NMN as its not yet an EU approved supplement. David Sinclair takes both NMN and Resveratrol. David Sinclair says that one enhances the other. Again, we can't advise on this; please see our Terms and Conditions.
A: Our NMN is produced using a fully enzymatic catalytic method, resulting in a high-purity product with much fewer solvents and impurities. We could source lower quality NMN at a fraction of the price, but we will never sell anything we don't take ourselves.
A: Consult with a veterinarian before giving NMN or any supplement to your pets. David Sinclair says he gives his dog NMN, and LifePowders staff give their dogs both NMN and Resveratrol every morning.
A: LifePowders ships NMN products from our EU location in Galway, Ireland, ensuring timely delivery and compliance with European regulations.
A: Both NMN and NR are precursors to NAD+. However, NMN is converted directly into NAD+, while NR must first be converted into NMN before being transformed into NAD+. Some studies suggest that NMN may be more effective at raising NAD+ levels. Again, Google David Sinclair; he has some great videos outlining why be believes NMN is better than NR.
A: Google "the French paradox". Resveratrol is found in grapes and the French like red wine! It is reported to have have anti-oxidant properties and protect cells from damage but studies still need to confirm this. David Sinclair says he takes it along with NMN.
A: Resveratrol may help heart health, healthy blood sugar levels, healthy ageing, and anti-inflammatory effects.
A: Resveratrol is generally considered safe for consumption. Our European Resveratrol is approved (500mg per day) as a supplement in the EU. David Sinclair says he takes 1000mg (1 gram) per day.
A: David Sinclair says he takes one gram or Resveratrol every morning; LifePowders Resveratrol is approved as a supplement in Europe up to 500 mg per day; if you wish to take more, you’ll have to do your own research.
A: Resveratrol is not soluble in water so you will have to mix it with oils. David Sinclair mixes his in yogurt in the morning, but it must be full fat, NOT low fat yogurt. You could also take it with a meal, or just mix it in a spoon of olive oil; it won’t be work properly otherwise. We sometimes chew it with a lump of cheese!
A: Lifepowders Resveratrol is fine for most people, but some may experience mild side effects like tummy issues. If you experience any effects, you should discontinue and talk to your doctor. We haven't seen any issues with LifePowders Resveratrol.
A: Store your Resveratrol powder in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture; ideally at about 16 oC. Do not freeze or refrigerate.
A: The shelf life of LifePowders Resveratrol powder is typically over 3 years when stored properly.
A: LifePowders prioritises sourcing high-quality Resveratrol, and we provide Certificates of Analysis for each batch to ensure purity and quality. But that’s only the beginning. You will know when you taste it. We don’t sell any supplements that we don’t take ourselves.
A: Our Resveratrol is sourced from a European manufacturer that produces high-quality, fermented Resveratrol, ensuring its compliance with European regulations and reducing the risk of contaminants. In addition, we supply the higher quality version (there are cheaper versions produced using chemicals). We don’t sell anything that we don’t take ourselves.
A: The Resveratrol from LifePowders is derived from a natural fermentation process, ensuring a high-quality and pure product.
A: David Sinclair takes both and says that one enhances the other. At LifePowders, we completely agree. However, NMN is not yet approved as a supplement in Europe so we you’ll have to do your own research.
A: LifePowders sources Resveratrol from a reputable European supplier subject to EU regulations, and our Resveratrol meets the highest purity standards. Each batch is accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis.
A: Our Resveratrol is suitable for dogs. Consult with a veterinarian before giving Resveratrol or any supplement to your pets. Having said that, at LifePowders we have two large dogs (circa 43 Kg) and we give them Resveratrol (and also NMN) every morning with their breakfast. Get in touch as this is close to our hearts!
A: Resveratrol powder may be better because you can mix it food, oils and fats etc. David Sinclair has compared it to concrete dust . . . it will not dissolve in water! So, unless you take it with oils, it will not get into your system. It should be mixed with oils like olive oil or FULL FAT yogurt.
