By achieving GRAS status,
Following a critical review of the comprehensive safety information and the estimated intake from its proposed uses, an independent panel of experts reached a unanimous decision that NIAGEN® is safe for use in food. An ingredient can be determined to be GRAS for use in foods through scientific procedures if it is generally recognized among qualified experts, as described under sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and
The GRAS status for NIAGEN® follows ChromaDex’s announcement last month that the New Dietary Ingredient Notification (NDIN) for NIAGEN® was successfully filed and
Published research has shown that NR is perhaps the most effective precursor to boost the co-enzyme NAD+ in the cell. NAD+ is arguably the most important cellular co-factor for improvement of mitochondrial performance and energy. In recent years, NAD+ has been shown to be essential in supporting healthy cellular metabolism including the efficient conversion of blood glucose into energy.
As organisms age, NAD+ levels drop, which leads to a decrease in mitochondrial health; this in turn leads to age-related health issues. Low NAD+ levels limit activity of a group of enzymes called sirtuins, which are believed to play a key role in longevity. NAD+ levels also can be depleted by lifestyle choices such as overeating and lack of exercise. By boosting NAD+, NR can increase mitochondrial health and induce creation of new mitochondria.
