Why NIAGEN is worth the hype

How this one exceptional vitamin got the attention of the scientific community.

Studies on our key ingredient have more than doubled since 2014


Over 150 scientific articles have been published on our key ingredient since its discovery in 2004. The number of papers coming out each year is steadily increasing as scientists continue to uncover the potential of this remarkable nutrient. (i)

Our Chief Scientific Advisor led the discovery


In 2004, Dr. Charles Brenner discovered nicotinamide riboside (NR) could maintain levels of a key cellular resource. This resource supports energy metabolism and plays an important role in the maintenance of good health. Although NR is a naturally occuring vitamin in milk, it’s only found in trace amounts. Based on Dr. Brenner’s patents and the established techniques of our parent company, ChromaDex, NR is exclusively licensed and developed as Niagen.

Niagen Maintains NAD To Support Cellular Energy Production


NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an important resource found in all living cells. We use it every day for things like breathing, eating, sleeping, and drinking. After over 100 years of studying this molecule, researchers are publishing more articles about NAD than ever before.
