NMN and Resveratrol: Which One is Better?

NMN and Resveratrol: Which One is Better?

In the ever-evolving world of health and wellness, supplements often take centre stage. Two popular supplements at the centre, which we know all too well, include NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide) and resveratrol. Both are touted for their longevity benefits, but is one better than the other? 

This blog will explore what NMN and resveratrol do, whether you need to take them together, if they really work, and when it's best to incorporate them into your daily routine. We'll also look at some customer experiences. 

What Does NMN and Resveratrol Do?

NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide): NMN is a molecule that plays a crucial role in cellular energy production. It is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme involved in various metabolic processes. NAD+ levels decline with age, and this decline is associated with various age-related health issues. NMN supplementation boosts NAD+ levels, potentially supporting cellular health, metabolism, and energy production.

Resveratrol: Resveratrol is a natural compound in certain foods like grapes, red wine, and peanuts. It is known for its antioxidant properties and its potential to promote cardiovascular health. Resveratrol has also been studied for its potential anti-aging effects and its ability to activate sirtuins, a group of proteins associated with longevity.

Do You Need to Take Resveratrol with NMN?

One common question that arises is whether you should take resveratrol alongside NMN. While both supplements have unique properties, they can complement each other. Resveratrol's activation of sirtuins may work synergistically with NMN to support cellular function and longevity. However, taking them together is not mandatory; the choice ultimately depends on your health goals and preferences.

Does NMN and Resveratrol Work?

The effectiveness of NMN and resveratrol is a topic of ongoing research. Human studies are growing rapidly, suggesting that NMN may increase NAD+ levels and potentially benefit cellular health and metabolism (R). On the other hand, resveratrol has shown impressive promise in animal studies, with human research still evolving (R).

It's important to note that supplements should be considered part of a broader health and wellness strategy. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, and sleep also significantly affect overall well-being and may positively impact the benefit you receive from taking NMN and resveratrol. 

When to Take NMN and Resveratrol?

The timing of NMN and resveratrol supplementation can vary based on individual preferences and goals. Some people prefer to take them in the morning, while others find it more convenient to take them at night. To minimise potential stomach upset, taking them with food is generally recommended.

NMN and Resveratrol Before and After

Understanding the impact of NMN and resveratrol can be challenging since results can be subtle and vary among individuals. Maintaining realistic expectations and giving these supplements time to work is essential. 

Monitoring your progress through before and after assessments, such as tracking energy levels, sleep quality, and overall well-being, can help you determine their effectiveness for you personally. Here’s some personal feedback from one of our customers:

“Hi, I’m new to this and have been taking these supplements- NMN first thing and then Resveratol later that morning or early afternoon. 

I notice some people are taking TMG? also. Is there a recommendation to take any other supplements alongside these two that I have?

I’ve been taking these for about 3 weeks and feeling great - noticeable changes in energy and my skin…very happy so far!”

Conclusion: Which One is Better?

NMN and resveratrol are both promising supplements that may support cellular health and longevity. When considering the research NMN may reign supreme, although resveratrol should not be overlooked, and the potential longevity benefits of the two taken together could yield impressive results. 


Ultimately, whether NMN, resveratrol, or a combination of both is better for you should be based on your unique circumstances and objectives.


It's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before adding any new supplements to your routine to ensure they align with your health goals and needs.
