The elderly are the main risk group in the current Covid-19 pandemic. What are the actions that the most vulnerable age group can take to protect themselves from the virus? Can a NAD+ booster such as NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) be effective in fighting off infection?
Unfortunately, without proper testing, we can't really know for sure. What we know though is that the virus attacks the elderly for a reason: aged vital organs and weak immune systems. And since NMN has shown to be quite effective in boosting cell regeneration and improving immune system, taking NMN daily may be an effective preventive measure. It won't prevent you from catching the virus - only the proper health hygiene will, however it may be helpful in fighting the infection and make its symptoms less lethal.
NMN has shown no harmful side effects, so it's also safe to take it, though we strongly advise you consult with your physician before taking any pills or health supplements. Alongside with this, it is also recommended to take other measures: regular physical exercise, especially High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Intermittent Fasting routines are all known to boost regeneration at cellular levels and increase activation of the SIRT-1 gene, which is paramount mechanism in age extension.
Stay safe, stay healthy, live longer happier life!
