Keynote Speaker, Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, will sign copies of his new book, “The Healing Self,” at the TRU NIAGEN booth

IRVINE, Calif., April 05, 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 cutting-edge form of vitamin B3, TRU NIAGEN, at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine Spring Congress, Booth #1020, taking place April 12-14 in Hollywood, FL.

TRU NIAGEN team members including ChromaDex Vice President of Research & Development, Amy Boileau, PhD, RD will be on site to discuss the scientific evidence supporting the anti-aging mechanism of NIAGEN® nicotinamide riboside, key ingredient in TRU NIAGEN. Visit the booth to receive a copy of the recently published clinical trial supporting its efficacy in humans.

This most recent research indicates that:

  • NIAGEN supplementation increased NAD levels nearly 60% on average in middle aged and older adults, compared with placebo
  • Supplementation remained effective at maintaining increased NAD levels after consistent use
  • Elevated blood pressure and aortic stiffness are promising targets for future NR studies

The booth will also host a book signing on Sat. 11:45am–1pm with renowned Alzheimer’s researcher, Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, following his keynote speech.

About NAD:
Despite being discovered more than 100 years ago, NAD has emerged in the past two decades as a key regulator of aging processes. NAD levels decline with age in model organisms and humans, and boosting NAD levels through genetic and nutritional means has been shown to improve the healthspan of model organisms.
