LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp.

“I have been following the research behind NAD and cellular health for years,” says Bryce Wylde, functional medicine clinician and one of Canada’s leading alternative health experts. “I take TRU NIAGEN myself and recommend it to my patients who want to live healthier—for longer.”

“As we build TRU NIAGEN into a global brand, we are pleased to extend our footprint to Canada,” says ChromaDex CEO Rob Fried. “We look forward to bringing TRU NIAGEN to the health-conscious people of Canada and other countries around the world.”
