1-MNA is an innovation resulting from several years of research conducted by scientists in multiple research centres all over the world.
This molecule is protected by patent law (EP 1713480). It is formed in the organism as a result of the metabolism of vitamin PP.
1-MNA is a physiological substance of vitamin origin, which can also be found in nature. The physiological ability to transform PP vitamin decreases with age. Supplementing the diet with 1-MNA is recommended especially to elderly people.

It can be found in nature
in the following rare products:

Wakame brown algae
(Undaria pinnatifida)
Green tea leaves
(Camellia sinensis)


  • vitamin origin – vitamin B3 metabolite
  • natural substance – present in Wakame algae extract
  • physiological substance – produced by humans

1-MNA is an endogenous active substance of vitamin origin, physiologically present in humans. It exists as a quaternary pyridinium salt and is a major metabolite of vitamin B3. 1-MNA is produced in humans as a result of vitamin B3 metabolism in the liver. This metabolite is found in very few food products. Wakame brown algae (Undaria pinnatifida) along with green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) are the richest known sources of 1-MNA. However, they are not considered practical 1-MNA sources for humans. As the physiological metabolism of vitamin B3 into 1-MNA decreases with age, dietary supplementation with 1-MNA is particularly recommended in the elderly.

1-MNA has been assessed in detail by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Scientific evaluation showed that 1-MNA is safe to use*.

It all began with research focused on selected pyridinium salts. Work conducted within the international research and clinical community led to the discovery of the unique function of 1-MNA. The mutual effort undertaken by these researchers resulted in the elaboration and launch of this innovative 1-MNA containing product

Today, we can proudly present the culmination of our research: an innovative dietary supplement, MENAVITIN, based on a unique, patent protected (EP 1713480) 1-MNA molecule, available only in the MENAVITIN dietary supplement.
