DRC Member Charles Brenner publishes study that shows supplement provides benefits to mouse moms and offspring

The study done by Charles Brenner and his research team found that the supplement, nicotinamide riboside (NR) provides physical and behavioral benefits to both mother mice and their offspring. When the mother mice were given the NR supplement they lost weight faster and produced more milk compared to those who were not given the supplement. Not only did the NR increase the quantity of milk, it also increased the quality of the milk by containing higher levels of a protein factor that promotes brain development.

Not only did the mouse moms benefit from the supplement, but the pups also experienced advantages produced by the NR. They were bigger and had better metabolic health than pups nursed by non-supplemented moms.

The goal is to find out if NR can safely increase lactation in women and if taking NR increases the levels of bioactive factors in human milk like it does in mice and rats.
