B-Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) No Longer Considered a Dietary Supplement
nmn fda approval is becoming popular in the US, as it’s been shown to be beneficial for insulin levels, brain health, and more. So, when people heard that the FDA had banned nmn supplements, it was a big blow for many of them. But the good news is, it’s not a permanent ban—Amazon has reopened its virtual shelves to sellers who can prove that their nmn products comply with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. This is similar to what happened when the FDA made N-acetyl-cysteine unenforceable, but it reverted back to using enforcement discretion instead of banning NAC altogether.
What foods are high in NMN?
But in this case, the agency decided that NMN was excluded from the definition of a dietary supplement because it was previously authorized for investigation as a new drug by the sponsor. This is a violation of the DSHEA race-to-market provision, and it sets an extremely dangerous precedent for dietary supplement regulation.
The Natural Products Association and Alliance for Natural Health USA have filed a petition requesting that the FDA reverse its position on NMN. They argue that excluding dietary ingredients that have been approved or investigated as drugs from being marketed as supplements is harmful to innovation in the industry and consumer choice.
