TRU NIAGEN® to be featured at the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians Annual Convention and the 2018 Healthy Aging Summit

Participation at two mid-July events will target healthcare practitioners

IRVINE, Calif., July 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC), an integrated, science-based, nutraceutical company devoted to improving the way people age, announced today that it will feature its flagship consumer product to help improve the aging process, TRU NIAGEN®, at the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians Annual Convention as well as the 2018 Healthy Aging Summit.

The sole active ingredient in TRU NIAGEN is nicotinamide riboside, a unique form of vitamin B3 clinically proven to safely increase one’s levels of NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). Decreased NAD levels have been associated with many age-related changes in overall health.

The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians Annual Convention will take place in San Diego, CA, from July 12-14—TRU NIAGEN will exhibit at booth #606. AANP is comprised of licensed naturopathic doctors, naturopathic medicine students, and other healthcare professionals to advance the field of naturopathic medicine.

Following the AANP meeting, the TRU NIAGEN team will exhibit at the 2018 Healthy Aging Summit, table #5, in Washington, DC, from July 16-17. Co-hosted by the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) and three government offices, the event is designed to explore the science behind healthy aging by bringing together healthcare practitioners with public health officials, universities, and service providers.

At both events, members of the TRU NIAGEN team will be on site to discuss the scientific evidence behind its revolutionary ingredient, as well as the recently published clinical data supporting its efficacy in humans. Visitors will also receive a complimentary bottle of TRU NIAGEN at the booth—come early as quantities are limited.
