That wouldn't be considered normal, however you can't really attribute it necessarily to the NMN after only one dose. It often takes at least several days to a week for someone to notice a difference in energy levels. In fact, some don't notice much difference at all, however NMN works to boost NAD+ levels on the cellular level, repairing DNA and the function of cells, so it's also fairly normal not to experience much difference in how you feel. That doesn't mean it's not working, though.
Think of NMN as the fuel and Resveratrol as the accelerator that drives our longevity genes. We recommend taking Resveratrol and NMN together to maximize their potential benefits.Melanie59 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 29, 2021 4:08 pm Thank you so much! When I purchased the NMN I also purchased Resveratrol. I usually don't take new supplements on top of each other, so if I do have a side effect I can figure out which one is causing the effect. Even though it was only one dose, I'm wondering since these two supplements compliment each other if I should try taking both of them together and see what happens? Any thoughts?
Hi Melanie59 and welcome to the forum.
If anything taking NMN has been known to have a stimulating effect but I have never heard of it inducing sleepiness. I would think more of a coincidence with something else happening at the same time. In saying that, we are all different in the way supplements work within our body. I would stick with the daily intake of NMN for a couple of weeks then reassess the situation.
How much did you take on your first dose?
The trick is to slowly build the dosage up to your sweet spot over a month or so.
Light sleepers who are more effected by increased stamina, hold off taking any after 4PM. My experience this way, playing Pickleball, a surge stress sport, is that the increased stamina will become noticeable within 45 minutes of dosage, and rise for about 4 hours, before tapering off. Hence the split initial dosage. After your body tolerance is realized, for a while (maybe 2-4 weeks,) try doubling this dosage for maximum stamina demand prior to stressing your body with some exercise event. Everybody has a unique adaptation, though the results are universal in cellular regeneration. This "Sweet spot" of 500mg/day ) has been found by many long time users to also exist as a goal.I found it first in a mixture of NNMsl/ and NAD+sl, powder , 250mg each/ day after three years. The new LIPO NAD+ Complete offers this combination, with 24 hour timed release, at 1/2 the sl dosage of 250 mg but LIPO delivery is 5-10 times more effective with 100% absorption, bypassing the livers filtration of all other methods of intake. That makes it the Super Bargain product, just recently offered.
