|Addressing aging population, TRU NIAGEN PRO now available for distribution by healthcare practitioners for patient health and wellness
IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC), an integrated, science-based, nutraceutical company devoted to improving the way people age with its flagship ingredient NIAGEN® and consumer product TRU NIAGEN®, today announced the launch of TRU NIAGEN PRO (60ct, 300mg per capsule), a partnership with Natural Partners Fullscript, and a new online NAD education hub for healthcare practitioners.
Tru Niagen Pro, which will be available exclusively for sale through healthcare practitioners, is the first of its kind, offering 60 capsules – each delivering 300 mg of Niagen® nicotinamide riboside (NR).
Dr. Phillip Milgram, Medical Director of the NAD Treatment Center in San Diego, CA, commented, “I have dedicated my career to increasing patients’ NAD levels for multiple medical indications, health and longevity. We are very excited to offer Tru Niagen Pro through our clinic. The growing body of science pointing to the importance of maintaining NAD levels via the use of daily supplementation of clinically proven precursors such as NR continues to build, and we are delighted to be associated with ChromaDex, the pioneers of NR development. We have a clinically proven dose of NR to deliver an effective increase in NAD in a single capsule.”
“NAD is required for all cells in the body to function,” says Dr. Alyssa Dweck, OB/GYN and Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. “I recommend Tru Niagen to my patients.”
In addition to offering Tru Niagen Pro direct to practitioners, ChromaDex has entered into a newly signed distribution agreement with Natural Partners Fullscript (Scottsdale, AZ), making Tru Niagen products available to their extensive network of over 40,000 healthcare practitioners.
Fran Towey, Natural Partners Fullscript CEO commented, “Tru Niagen uniquely addresses the most critical issues facing patients today and is proving to make a real positive difference in people’s lives. We’re excited to be partnering with ChromaDex to bring its innovation to our Natural Partners Fullscript community as well as to bring Tru Niagen Pro exclusively to healthcare practitioners.”
ChromaDex CEO Robert Fried notes, “We are delighted to be associated with Natural Partners Fullscript. They are the leaders and innovators in the healthcare practitioner channel and will help us bring the Tru Niagen brand to this important and influential community.”
Healthcare practitioners can also now have access to convenient online wholesale purchasing as well as a practitioner-exclusive education hub with a searchable, categorized database of the over 100 published pre-clinical and clinical studies detailing the ability of NAD and NR to support human health.
