5-Amino-1MQ is a small molecule that is essential in metabolism and energy and most active in the fat tissue. 5-Amino-1MQ promotes the increase in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a contributor to cellular metabolism. It therefore can increase the metabolic rate and activate the longevity gene. The main part of 5-Amino-1MQ is to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver disease, neurodegeneration, and cancer. It can shrink fat cells and lower fat deposits.
