What is NIAGEN®?

NIAGEN®, also known as nicotinamide riboside (NR), is a very unique member of the vitamin B3 family. The body converts NR into Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) which is an essential molecule found in every living cell.

Why is NAD+ so important?

NAD+ enables cells to convert the food that we eat into the energy that we need. NAD+ is also the communication molecule between the cell nucleus and the mitochondria which are the energy producing factories in the cell. If NAD+ levels are low, then communication may be impaired and mitochondria dysfunction may result. When this occurs, everything begins to breakdown.

Boosting NAD+ levels promote cellular metabolism, mitochondrial function, and energy production.


Why is NIAGEN® so revolutionary?

The cruel reality is NAD+ levels are highest at birth and decreases dramatically with age. Also, certain lifestyle choices such as over-eating or a sedentary routine deplete NAD+ levels.

In a recent human study, one serving of NIAGEN® increased NAD+ levels by 33% in 8 hours.
