Journal of Biological Chemistry paper examines enhancement of immunity to coronaviruses through nutritional and pharmacological interventions that enhance NAD levels

MIRAILAB’s work on the potential effectiveness of NMN in fighting COVID-19 and other viral infections takes inspiration in part from this paper, published on October 13, 2020. The coenzyme NAD is essential in all cells, and since NMN is an essential component of NAD, it may therefore have a role in fighting infection though the potential nutritional and pharmacological agency described in the paper.

The MIRAILAB BIOSCIENCE mission is to improve the well-being of our customers and society through rigorous development of productive aging science.


In about 40 years, the world population will exceed 10 billion, while the elderly in developed regions will reach 27.6% of the population amid declining birth rates.


The arrival of a “super-aging” society is becoming an issue not only in Japan but worldwide.


And Japan, with its aging population already exceeding 28%, is now faced with a new challenge: how to extend healthy life expectancy while absolute life expectancy is increasing due to advances in medical technology.


In light of this, MIRAILAB BIOSCIENCE is developing NMN-based nutraceuticals, inspired by the potential discovered in the early research of pioneering scientists and motivated by positive results in clinical trials and the feedback of our customers.


How far can science expand the possibilities of humankind?

How well can we reflect the benefits of science in our lives?

MIRAILAB BIOSCIENCE Inc. aspires to a new level of Quality Of Life.
