Why I Stopped Taking NMN Long Term? Here’s The Real Reason Why


Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is something that has been used widely by people across the territories for a range of different health benefits. However, recently people are given up on this particular trend for a couple of reasons. This article is all about why I stopped taking NMN for a prolonged period of time just like many others. Apart from that, this article would also discuss some of the most important aspects of NMN and its effects on human beings. We have also tried to include the experiences and results of a lot of people who have taken NMN for a longer period of time and have now given up on the same. We will also be discussing the safe usage of NMN and the purported benefits of the same.

What Happens When You Stop Taking NMN?

Why I stopped NMN only because of the realisation that happened lately. NMN is a natural compound that can be produced naturally by the human body. However, when you suddenly stop NMN you may notice some subtle changes such as a disrupted blood sugar level, reduced cognitive functions, etc. But if you have been continuously following healthy dietary habits and workout routines, it is less likely for you to develop issues such as an imbalance in the blood sugar levels and also challenges in cognitive functions.

You may also notice some imbalances in the NAD+ levels in your body. However, it is quite important to note that it is not that healthy to rely on artificial dietary supplements and medications to maintain your blood sugar levels and cognitive functions when you can naturally maintain them using your daily dietary choices.

Why Was NMN Banned?

The ban on NMN should be understood only as a myth. NMN is a compound that has been widely used by people primarily for its anti-ageing benefits. However, NMN has been an over-the-counter medicine or a dietary supplement over all these years. But quite lately, the sale of NMN has been restricted and many countries have demanded the prescription from a certified medical practitioner for the sale of these supplements.

The excessive use of NMN has been causing a couple of side effects in people which led to the restriction as mentioned above. However, why I stopped NMN not just because of these bans but also because of the natural food sources that can boost the NAD+ levels in human beings.

Can NMN Slow Down The Ageing Process?

Why I stopped taking NMN has nothing to do with the inefficacy of the supplement in its purported benefits of slowing down the ageing process. NMN can work well in the human body and thus make the ageing process slow down significantly. Instead of a drastic slowing down in the biological ageing of human beings, this supplement is known to promote healthy ageing in human beings. A lot of studies and research attempts have been conducted regarding the relationship of NMN with its anti-ageing benefits, all of which have shown the same thing.

However, it is also important to note that several studies have also indicated that more conclusive pieces of evidence are required in order to confirm the anti-ageing benefits of NMN. Whereas, as a personal user of NMN, and according to a couple of testified users, it has been found that NMN has significant anti-ageing benefits.

When we consume NMN as a daily dietary supplement, the natural NAD levels in the human body increase leading to the proper functioning of the cells in the human body resulting in a couple of anti-ageing benefits.

NMN can also improve functions such as DNA repair, circadian rhythm of the human body, energy metabolism, inflammation, stress resistance, and so on. The improvement of all these functions results in an overall development of the health and wellness of human beings. It can effectively reduce cellular damage and thereby slow down the natural ageing process of the human body. It can also prevent premature ageing in human beings and thereby support healthy ageing. 

What Is NMN And Its Benefits?

NMN has a lot of health benefits and this should be understood in a comprehensive manner even if you are trying to quit taking NMN as a dietary supplement. I have also tried to research and understand a lot regarding the same even before I gave up on the same. Why I stopped taking NMN has a lot of reasons associated with my understanding of the various health benefits of NMN. Some of them have been mentioned below.

  1. Helps in regulating the blood sugar level
  2. Helps in improving the cognitive function of the individual
  3. Promotes healthy ageing
  4. Prevents premature ageing
  5. Strengthens immunity

NMN Supplement Side Effects 

Why I stopped taking NMN supplements is also because of the mild side effects that started to surface slowly. After consuming NMN for a longer period of time, I started experiencing issues such as diarrhoea, abdominal pain, upper respiratory issues and so on. If you are someone who is not that concerned about the composition of NMN supplements, there are chances for you to end up buying 500mg ones which would not be tolerable for those who are taking NMN supplements for the first time.

Is NMN Safe To Take Long-term?

Try not to depend upon artificial dietary supplements when they can be availed through natural dietary choices. Make sure you are beginning with the right composition and not ending up in NMN toxicity. Immediately stop the usage if you find any allergic reactions after the usage.

Does NMN Cause Cancer?

Several studies show that NMN can lead to different types of breast cancers. However, no conclusive evidence has been obtained from those studies. But it is also important that you keep in mind these casualties before making NMN a part of your daily routine.

What Are NMN And Resveratrol?

Just like the individual trend of NMN, combining NMN and Resveratrol has also led to great results in individuals. Both compounds function together to promote healthy cell function and prevent them from a lot of damage.

Now you might have understood why I stopped taking NMN on a daily basis. However, it is a personal choice to consume it or not. However it is important to know that increasing NDA levels through natural food items would be the best way you can have the benefits of anti-ageing.
