Mirailab Bioscience’s NMN

Mirailab Bioscience is a pioneering biotechnology venture that has been at the forefront of NMN research in Japan since early on, offering NMN that is not only safer but also of the highest quality compared to anywhere else.

Professor Shin-ichiro Imai, who broke new ground with his research on NMN, blows the whistle on the pandemonium of NMN capsules available on the market at present, and Mirai Lab’s Pure Series are the very products he can rely on. Mirai Lab’s NMN Pure series boasts absolute purity with the approval of a leading expert. This NMN does not contain impurities or forms of NMN not produced naturally in our bodies.

Commercialization focused on research on NMN, which is rapidly making the medical industry progress. We established our original supplement brand Mirai Lab and started making sales. Many NMN companies cite scientific papers published by anti-aging researchers or request external inspections from food analysis centers, but do not perform analysis using their own laboratories. Mirailab Bioscience is the only company in Japan that owns an in-house NMN research laboratory.

The absolute measurement method quantifies what percentage of all substances detected in the sample is NMN, and indicates the purity with reference to NMN. On the other hand, the relative measurement method shows the relative value with reference to a “standard NMN” which is considered 100% pure. Surprisingly, the “standard NMN” in this second method can be supplied by the manufacturer itself, and its purity is not disclosed. Mirai Lab’s NMN achieves an absolute purity of 99.7% (1), and when compared with other companies’ products as shown below, the purity of Mirai Lab’s NMN exceeds 100% in relative purity. This explains well by itself the overwhelming purity of Mirai Lab’s products.

Differences in methods for measuring NMN purity

There are two different measuring methods: the absolute method and the relative method.
We employ the absolute method, which shows objectively how much is NMN, from all the substances found in a sample.

Absolute purity determined
by a precise method

Purity determined by a relative measurement method

Also, according to another analysis that determines the identity of the impurities found in the first test, the only impurity detected in our NMN is nicotinamide, a substance humans can ingest with total safety.

Impurities in NMN samples

Please note that there are products from other brands available on the market that claim to contain high-purity NMN, while they may actually contain low-quality NMN whose safety has not been confirmed.

NMN exists with two different molecular structures: α-NMN and β-NMN. The NMN that we need is β-NMN, which is naturally generated in our bodies. The other NMN, α-NMN, is something we don’t need and something not produced in us. Mirai Lab is offers you NMN supplements with the only NMN you should care about: β-NMN.

About optical isomerism

α-NMN and β-NMN have the same types and numbers of components (atoms) that make up the molecule, but the orientation of the connections between these components (atoms) is different, and they are referred to as optical isomers.
The schematic representation of the molecular structures of α-NMN and β-NMN is shown in the figure to illustrate their differences.
