The promoting mechanism of TRU NIAGEN™ to be featured at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress

A4M Senior Vice-President Joseph Maroon will give away signed copies of his book, “Square One, A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life” at the TRU NIAGEN™ booth

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC), a science-based, fully integrated nutraceutical company devoted to extending human healthspan, announced today it will feature its proprietary, anti-aging nutrient TRU NIAGEN™ at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) 25th Annual World Congress meeting, booth #8086 this December 14-16 in Las Vegas, NV.

Amy Sindler, PhD, a new member of the ChromaDex scientific affairs team and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) expert will be on site to talk to attendees about the exciting mechanism of action that has ignited excitement among the scientific community globally. Stop by to discuss the human clinical evidence supporting its efficacy.

Research indicates that anti-aging benefits of TRU NIAGEN™ include:

  • Increasing metabolism and energy production in every cell*
  • Promotion of healthy mitochondrial function, which is an important component of human aging*
  • Increased sirtuin activation, improving mitochondrial activity to help defend against cellular damage due to free radicals*

The booth will also host a book signing with renowned neurosurgeon Joseph Maroon.  Those who stop by may receive one of the 250 free signed copies of Maroon’s book, “Square One, A Simple Guide to a Balanced Life.” In this inspiring book based on his deeply personal journey and documented science, Maroon guides readers into improving their quality of life by rebalancing four areas: good health, a sense of spirituality, meaningful work and strong relationships.

At 77, this veteran of more than 70 triathlons and nine Ironman triathlons is a living testament to all he’s learned. Part of his daily regimen is to take a next-generation form of vitamin B3 called TRU NIAGEN™, which helps to activate the body’s healthy aging mechanisms. “The cells in our body can contain anywhere from a few to thousands of mitochondria, which produce our energy (ATP). If you don’t have enough ATP, your cells don’t function properly. And if enough cells don’t function, you don’t function. To stay healthy, your cells need NAD+. TRU NIAGEN™ is a highly effective NAD+ booster,” comments Maroon, who says he feels 20 years younger than his chronological age.

Visitors to the booth will also have the chance to receive a free full-size bottle of TRU NIAGEN™ as they take part in a fun photo opportunity to share with the world why they are working to help people Age Better. Attendees should plan to come early as quantities are limited.
