LOS ANGELES, March 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) announced today it will feature its cellular health product, TRU NIAGEN®, at SXSW®, as it marks the achievement of attaining over 160 research collaborations around the world on its patented NIAGEN® (nicotinamide riboside) ingredient.
"To help SXSW® attendees who need an extra boost in their busy lives, we'll be providing samples of Tru Niagen and discussing the science that disrupted the multi-billion-dollar anti-aging category with the discovery of nicotinamide riboside by Dr. Charles Brenner," says Frank Jaksch, ChromaDex Co-Founder and Executive Chairman.
The Tru Niagen team will be onsite at the SXSW® Trade Show (Booth #149) from March 10-13th to provide samples while supplies last, as well as to explain the importance of NAD+ and the scientific evidence behind its clinically-studied ingredient which increases energy at the cellular level. Consumers, from professional athletes to health care professionals, report improved energy, increased feelings of well-being, and newfound resilience.
“Rarely does an ingredient come to market with this level of independent, human research validating its safety and efficacy at boosting cellular health,” says ChromaDex CEO Rob Fried. “As the world begins to understand the critical role of cellular health in the aging process, Tru Niagen will be there.”
ChromaDex has been a respected pioneer in the health, wellness, and nutritional ingredient categories for nearly 20 years. In 2018, the Company launched the TRU NIAGEN® PRO line for health care practitioners, featuring the highest dose of nicotinamide riboside available in a single capsule, at 300mg. Additionally, the Company began selling a customized product for professional sports teams which maintains NSF International’s Certified for Sport® Certification.
