Frank Jaksch to speak on healthy aging and the research supporting TRU NIAGEN® in Berlin

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) announced today that it will present the science behind TRU NIAGEN® (nicotinamide riboside) at the 9th World Congress on Targeting Mitochondria 2018 in Berlin, Germany, from Oct. 23-25.

Frank Jaksch, ChromaDex Co-Founder & Executive Chairman, will present “The Nicotinamide Riboside Journey, From Discovery To Clinical Efficacy” to the World Mitochondria Society to review the biochemical and physiological role of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) with an emphasis on the implications these processes have on healthy aging.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to speak at the World Mitochondria Society meeting this year,” says Jaksch. “I look forward to sharing the science behind our revolutionary ingredient with mitochondrial researchers from around the world.”

Additional highlights of the conference will include how to target and manipulate mitochondrial function in order to develop future mitochondria-based therapies, nutritional and pharmaceutical interventions for mitochondrial respiratory deficiencies, and the role of mitochondria in the process of aging.

“The future of medicine lies with mitochondria,” says Volkmar Weissig, PhD, President of the World Mitochondria Society. “We are excited to learn more about the role of NAD in future research.”
