Shipping

Where do you ship from?

All our products are currently made in New Zealand and shipped from our warehouse in Hobsonville, Auckland, NZ.

We have worked hard to improve shipping timeframes to Australia by being pre-cleared with customs. We dispatch orders within 24 hours of order and usually same say, and can get orders to New Zealand customers usually between 2-5 days NZ wide, and Australia 2-6 days.

We also cannot ship NMN from within Australia or sell it through our Australian business, so opening an Australian warehouse is not viable currently. The reason is NMN is currently not yet approved by the TGA for sale within Australia. NMN is only approved by the TGA for export use only.

That means local Australian businesses cannot legally sell NMN to Australian consumers either from within or outside the country. You may see some competitors selling locally but please note, they are not legally approved to do so.

For this reason, we operate under our New Zealand entity and process all NMN sales through our New Zealand business, and ship from our New Zealand warehouse. We do have an Australian business, but this does not process any of our online orders at this time.

NMN has been consumed for 10+ years globally with almost no adverse side effects being reported. Recent studies are now showing the real, tangible benefits of NMN consumption as we age. 

We have faith the TGA will at some point authorise its distribution within Australia, but as you might imagine, governmental regulatory bodies must, by their very nature, lag behind scientific advancements. As soon as this changes, we will launch our Australian warehouse to further improve the speed of Australian deliveries to our customers.

Will my order be tracked and shipped?

Yes it will. Your order will be shipped via NZpost for New Zealand deliveries, and Courier Select for Australian deliveries which are all track n trace.  You will receive a tracking number upon your order being dispatched via email and SMS.

You can also pay for express shipping with DHL for faster delivery to Australian addresses.

How much is shipping?

Shipping is free in New Zealand for orders over $40 from our NZ website. Shipping will be calculated for any other countries at checkout, depending on your location.

Shipping is free in Australia for orders over $40 from our AUS website. Shipping will be calculated for any other countries at checkout, depending on your location.

For Australian orders, You can also pay an additional $15 for express shipping with DHL for speedy delivery.

How fast is shipping to AUS?

There is free standard shipping via courier select, and express DHL shipping. We dispatch the order the next business day after you have placed it and supply track and trace. The average order time frame to most locations for free shipping in Australia is 2-6 days, and for DHL express shipping is 1-3 days.

NMN

What actually is NMN?

NMN, or nicotinamide mononucleotide, is a vital precursor to NAD+, a molecule crucial for cellular energy production and overall maintenance. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less NAD+, affecting various cellular functions. Supplementing with NMN can help replenish NAD+ levels, potentially benefiting cellular health and vitality. 

This supplement has captured the attention of leading scientists, biohackers, and celebrities worldwide, all seeking to harness its potential anti-ageing and health-optimising effects. 

Prominent figures in the fields of biochemistry and anti-aging research, such as Leonard Guarente, Nir Barzilai, David Sinclair have also explored the implications of NAD+ and NMN in their work, further validating its significance in the scientific community, and it’s commonly used by well known celebrities including Justin Bieber.

What are the benefits of taking NMN?

NMN, a precursor to the vital coenzyme NAD, plays a pivotal role in several cellular processes, including energy metabolism, DNA repair, and gene regulation. As NAD levels diminish with age, contributing to age-related conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, NMN supplementation can potentially elevate NAD levels. 

This may enhance cognitive abilities and slow the progression of age-related decline.

What are the benefits of taking TMG with my NMN or Resveratrol?

In short, It helps in balancing and optimising the use of these supplements for better results. TMG Betaine, an essential supplement for anyone using NMN or Resveratrol as part of their cognitive and longevity regimen. TMG Betaine, also known as Trimethylglycine, plays a pivotal role in the body's methylation processes, which are crucial for optimal cellular function and DNA repair.

Our TMG Betaine is expertly formulated to complement the effects of NMN and Resveratrol, enhancing their benefits while supporting overall cognitive health and well-being. It's particularly beneficial for those looking to maximise the efficacy of their nootropic and longevity supplements.

Where is your NMN made?

Our NMN is made in New Zealand from imported ingredients. Where we source our NMN varies depending on the quality of the end powder. We’ve sourced from countries including Japan, USA, China, and Europe and are not reliant on one supplier. The source at any given time may change and continues to do so as we seek only the highest quality raw ingredients. These ingredients are eventually third party tested for purity and processed in our New Zealand facility. We're proud to hire local staff in New Zealand to support our supply chain. If it doesn’t meet our incredibly high standards, we won’t sell it!

Unfortunately there is a rampant spread of misinformation from some companies that NMN is only sourced from China in an attempt to discredit our processes. But don’t just take our word for it - after a quick Google search you will also clearly see that there are in fact a number of trustworthy countries that supply NMN powder, as previously noted. Currently the two biggest suppliers of NMN are China and North America.

Is NMN natural or synthetic?

While NMN is naturally present in living organisms, the NMN in supplements, including ours, is synthetically produced for stability and cost-effectiveness. Synthetic NMN offers controlled purity and longer shelf life, with no known physiological drawbacks compared to its natural counterpart.

Is NMN vegan, gluten free, GMO-free, and free of nasties?

Absolutely. Our NMN is vegan-friendly, non-GMO, and free from gluten and any undesirable additives, ensuring a pure and clean supplement.

Which foods contain NMN?

Foods such as broccoli, avocados, and almonds contain NMN, but in minimal amounts. To put it in perspective, the NMN content in 500mg of our supplement is equivalent to what you'd find in 25kg of broccoli!

500mg of pure NMN is the equivalent of taking 25kg of broccoli!

Is your NMN tested for purity and stability?

We guarantee the integrity of our NMN with comprehensive testing, demonstrating 99.9% purity level through certificates of analysis.

How long until I start seeing results?

Many users report initial cognitive improvements within hours to days of starting Simply Nootropics NMN. Over time, the benefits can enhance, with typical progress as follows:

Days 1-15: Enhanced energy, memory, and cognition.

Days 15-60: Noticeable weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity.

Days 60-180: Significant reduction in biological ageing markers.

What does NMN taste like?

Our NMN has a neutral taste with a subtle hint of sourness, similar to L-carnitine or vitamin C.

Is NMN like collagen? Can it help with hair/skin/nails?

NMN and collagen are synergistic in their roles. While collagen primarily benefits external aspects like skin health, NMN focuses on internal wellness, enhancing metabolism, DNA repair, cardiovascular health, and muscle function in aging individuals however some consumers report improved skin health with NMN too.

Can NMN Speed Up Metabolism and Assist with Weight Management?

NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) may support metabolism and weight management. It enhances NAD+ levels, which are crucial for energy metabolism and decline with age. This can potentially improve metabolic rate and fat burning processes, aiding in weight management. However, it's essential to combine NMN supplementation with a balanced diet and regular exercise for optimal results. Further research is needed to fully understand NMN's effects on weight management. Always consult a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen.

Can NMN help with diabetes & heart health?

Emerging research indicates NMN's potential in improving insulin sensitivity, particularly in older adults with pre-diabetes symptoms. Additionally, NMN shows promise in supporting heart health.

Which is better for boosting NAD+, NMN or NR?

While both NMN and NR (nicotinamide riboside) are marketed as NAD+ boosters, NMN is often preferred for three key reasons:

Greater stability in the bloodstream.

Closer proximity in the NAD+ conversion pathway.

Endorsement by leading longevity scientists and more focused research.

Products such as Tru Niagen and Cognitune have focussed on using NR versus NMN. Research suggests NMN is the superior ingredient and is more bioavailable which is why we choose NMN at Simply Nootropics.

How should I store my NMN?

To maintain its potency, keep your NMN sealed in its pouch and store it in a refrigerator or a cool place.

Are there any side effects with NMN?

For most individuals, NMN doesn't cause side effects. A small number may experience mild symptoms like nausea or fatigue, often due to a specific gene mutation (MTHFR) affecting the body's processing. This can be easily managed by incorporating our TMG Betaine powder into your daily routine, which helps support the body's natural processes.
