ChromaDex - NIAGEN™ Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)

NIAGEN™ Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)


    What is NIAGEN?
    • A nature-identical and the first and only commercially-available nicotinamide riboside (NR) with four patents issued or pending
      • NR is a compound naturally found in milk
    • NR is a next-generation vitamin B3 (niacin)
      • Similar in structure and function to niacin
      • Uses a more efficient pathway to deliver NAD+ for use by the human body
      • May eliminate undesirable flushing1
    • NR is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and is shown to boost NAD+ levels2


    NIAGEN – Mitochondrial Function
    • NAD+ is an essential compound that enables cells to convert fuel to energy and promotes mitochondrial function*
      • Mitochondria are the organelles found in cells which conduct biochemical processes of respiration and energy production
    • Since NAD+ is a rate-limiting cosubstrate for the sirtuin enzymes, availability of NAD+ can be used to enhance sirtuin function and therefore oxidative metabolism2
    Where Can NIAGEN Deliver Results?

    Healthy Aging

    • Acts as an NAD+ precursor and a sirtuin activator, improving mitochondrial activity to prevent cellular damage from free radicals, rather than attempting to address damage already done3
    • Promotes healthy mitochondrial function, which is an important component in human aging*


    Cardiovascular Health

    • Has shown to prevent, as an NAD+ precursor, the increase in total and LDL cholesterol levels induced by a high-fat diet2



    • Has been shown to lower high-fat-diet-induced weight gain by enhancing energy expenditure, not by reduced food intake or affecting activity levels3
    • Supports energy at the cellular level to promote cellular metabolism*



    • Improved endurance due to enhanced mitochondrial function3
    • Demonstrated, in animal studies, higher O2 consumption rates and increased flexibility in the use of energy substrates, as reflected in the higher amplitude of the changes in the respiratory exchange ratio (RER) between feeding and fasting periods



    • Supports cellular health in the brain by providing an additional safeguard against axonal degeneration1
    • Maintains neuronal cell health1
