Also a tragic death in the family was another blow. I was wondering if she could ever recover.
But in the last week it has been significant. A better appetite. Better endurance. More energy. But most of all, an observable improved sense of wellbeing. More talkative.
That is what i recognised today, since that is what i had experiences once i had been taking 500mg NMN for about 1 month.
Also her chronic pain is getting more manageable.
I am thinking all these things seem to be happening at once since i think that is how NMN works. As levels are brought to the right degree and once a few weeks go by, things just start functioning better.
All of these changes are subtle, but noticeable. Up until 2 weeks ago, she was barely eating 1/3 of what was on her plate for supper. Now she is eating everything on her plate.
This is bittersweet of course. I wish this stuff had been around a decade or more ago. But if I can help make her life more liveable and less painful - i will do whatever it takes.
Keep us all updated with her ongoing improvement..
I also think it is wise to skip a day.
I also seemed to experience my observable gains all during a 2 week period. I agree that it must be related to reaching our 'sweet spot' as far as dosage is concerned, and having that perfect level of NMN (and other things) reach the right level in our bodies.
Liposomal Curcumin / Resveratrol
Melatonin 1mg (am)
Blueberry extract 1g
Vitamin E tocotrienols 50 mg
Astragalus 500 mg
Methyl B12 5000 mcg 3x/week
Methyl Folate 1000 mcg 1-3/week
I am also giving my mother B12 as methylcobalamin and folate as l-methylfolate occasionally just to make sure she doesn't have any side effects from 'too much' methylation.
I can only observe what she reports right now. I love that she is in less pain.
That seems to be the way the body breaks down as we advance in old age.
With the help of AliveByScience and along with genetics and fitness I’m doing the best I possibly can to slow that decline down.
