Is NMN Legal in Australia?

As NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) continues to be a topic of discussion in the health and wellness community, many Australians are curious about its legal status down under. Let's investigate whether NMN is legal in Australia and what you need to know.

Legal Status of NMN in Australia

NMN is legal in Australia and can be purchased as a dietary supplement, specifically for personal use under the personal import scheme but current sits as an export only ingredient. This status allows Australians to access NMN supplements, provided they comply with the local import regulations​ and are for personal use only. 

Can NMN be made in Australia?

Due to regulatory restrictions, NMN can be manufactured within Australia but once made it has to be exported out. The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has not approved NMN for sale within Australia, meaning that NMN products available in the Australian market are typically produced overseas and then imported.

Moving Forward

The legal status of NMN in Australia reflects a broader global discussion on regulating supplements and novel compounds. As research continues and regulatory frameworks evolve, we may see changes in how NMN is classified and regulated. Australians interested in NMN should stay informed about legal and health guidelines, ensuring they navigate this emerging field responsibly and safely.


In conclusion, while NMN is not classified as a controlled substance or registered medicine in Australia, consumers should remain informed. The evolving landscape of health supplements and regulatory policies underscores the importance of staying up-to-date with legal statuses and health advisories.
