NR vs. NMN Supplement: A Comparison of Science (2023)

Nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) are both precursors to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme that plays important roles in energy production, DNA repair, and other cellular processes. The primary difference is that NR is a form of Vitamin B3 (Niacin), while NMN is a type of nucleotide.  NMN vs. NR NMN is converted into NAD+ directly by enzymes in the body, while NR needs to go through an additional step in the body in order to be converted into NAD+.  NR is converted into NAD+ in the body and is used to support the production of NAD+ . It is used in therapies for aging, weight loss, and cognitive decline. NMN is also a precursor to NAD+ and is used to support the production of NAD+ . NMN is a type of nucleotide, which are the building blocks of DNA and RNA, NMN is found in small amoun

Ischemic Stroke: Signs, Symptoms and Treatment (2023)

Strokes can be divided into hemorrhagic stroke and ischemic strokes, and approximately 80% of them are ischemic brain injury. Ischemic strokes are sometimes referred to as "brain attacks" (instead of "heart attacks") because they typically occur when a blood clot blocks an artery or blood vessel, cutting off blood flow to your brain, as opposed to your heart. 1 As a result, brain cells die and neurological damage can occur. Without proper and timely treatment, a stroke can be lethal. According to statistics published in 2020, 2  an estimated 795,000 strokes occur each year in the U.S., and in 2017, 146,383 Americans died as a result. However, new research in 2022 shows an 11% increase in new cases of stroke that cause brain bleeding, or intracerebral hemorrhage stroke, and at a faster rate in younger to middle-age people. 3 Stroke is also a leading cause of long-term disability in the U.S. 4  Worldwide, stroke is the second
