Product Description

500 mg dose

Nicotinamide-Riboside – Clinically Studied, Over 10 Years of Scientific Research
For Energy, Healthy Metabolism, and Neuroprotection

Unique Molecule – Different than Niacin or Nicotinamide!
Nicotinamide Riboside is Found in Minute Amounts in Milk, Beer and Yeast

Nicotinamide Riboside is the Most Direct Precursor that Increases NAD+ Levels
Promotes Healthy Aging and Metabolism Through Sirtuin Activation

Nicotinamide Riboside → NAD+
(Nicotinamide Riboside is a direct precursor of NAD+)

NAD+ is a catalyst that:

  • Increases the body’s ability to produce energy (ATP) in the mitochondria and to make more mitochondria
  • Supports cognitive function and provides neuroprotection
  • Supports healthy metabolic function, including insulin sensitivity and support for fatty liver
  • Promotes healthy aging by activating the sirtuin enzyme
    {SIRT1 and SIRT3 play key roles in healthy aging, fat metabolism, weight management, insulin resistance, nerve function, lipid metabolism in the liver.}
  • Supports weight management by promoting thermogenesis
  • Supports endurance athletes and fatigued individuals by increasing mitochondrial activity in the muscles, particularly cardiac muscle.

The key ingredient in TRU NIAGEN® Pro is NIAGEN® nicotinamide riboside (NR)—a unique form of vitamin B3 clinically proven to increase nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) [4-6], the critical catalyst that powers metabolism and helps maintain healthy cellular function.*

NAD has been shown to decline with age [7, 8] and metabolic stress [9-12]. It has also been demonstrated to help support many aspects of healthy aging.

Tru Niagen provides daily cellular care to help you age better® and live better, including:

  • Replenishing NAD levels[4, 6, 13, 14]*
  • Increasing cellular energy production[14]*
  • Promoting healthy cellular metabolism[15-17]*
  • Promoting cellular repair[7, 15, 17, 18]*
  • Supporting healthy aging[4, 6, 13, 14]*
