Can I Take NMN At Night?

NMN at night

You can take NMN at night. In fact, some people find that taking it before bed helps them sleep better. Additionally, taking NMN at night may help your body better absorb and use the supplement. 

Should I take NMN morning or night?

NMN is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to have a wide range of health benefits. 

However, when it comes to taking NMN, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. 

Some people prefer to take it in the morning, others in the evening. Some, like David Sinclair (at the writing of this publication), take it both morning and evening. 

There is no wrong answer, and ultimately it comes down to personal preference. 

One advantage of taking NMN in the morning is that it can help to boost energy levels and mental clarity. 

Additionally, many people find that they are better able to absorb NMN when taken on an empty stomach. 

However, taking NMN at night can also be beneficial, as it can help to promote restful sleep. 

Ultimately, the best time to take NMN is whenever it works best for you as there simply isn't enough evidence to suggest either is superior.

Does NMN keep you awake at night?

To help us answer this question we're going to explore the Japanese Study that suggests NMN Can Benefit Sleep and Physical Performance in Older Adults.

Okura and colleagues from Tsukuba University in Japan published in Nutrients showing that taking nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) in the afternoon for 12 weeks at 250 mg doses enhances physical function and reduces drowsiness in older adults.

Which is truly remarkable! So we think it's safe to say that according to the current data we have available to us there's no evidence to suggest that taking NMN in the evening keeps you up at night.
