Published research has shown that nicotinamide riboside (NR) is proving to be a potent novel ingredient in many health areas, including athletic performance, weight management, longevity, and neuroprotection.  NR acts as an NAD+ precursor and a sirtuin activator, improving mitochondrial activity to support metabolism and energy at the cellular level.  Further, as a next-generation vitamin B3, NR offers a more efficient alternative to niacin without the unfortunate side effect of flushing.  NIAGEN™, developed by ChromaDex, is patent-protected and the first and only commercially available NR with benefits to support several key health areas of concern in the market today.
