TRU NIAGEN® Daily Serving Strengthened Under FDA’s NDI Notification

ChromaDex increases capsule serving to 150mg TRU NIAGEN® (nicotinamide riboside), following successful New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification from FDA

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) announced today it has strengthened its flagship TRU NIAGEN® (nicotinamide riboside) nutrient to 150mg capsules, two per day. The more potent product will launch on, effective today.

“We are pleased to offer Tru Niagen users a 300mg daily serving of our revolutionary ingredient,” says Robert Fried, ChromaDex CEO. “This will provide an extra boost in NAD levels, which decline with age and the daily stressors of life.”

Niagen was clinically-studied at 300mg to increase NAD in 2016, published in the journal Nature Communications. Since then, three additional clinical studies have published on Niagen and 18 additional clinical studies on ChromaDex’s patented ingredient are planned or in progress.

Niagen has received two successful New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notifications, the second reviewed at 300mg, as well as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) notification to the FDA.

Tru Niagen is a breakthrough supplement clinically proven to increase your NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) levels which stimulate cellular energy production and support cellular repair. Decreased NAD levels and senescent cells have been associated with many age-related declines in overall health.
