ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) announced today that it entered into a strategic supply agreement for Niagen® with Ro, a healthcare-technology company. The agreement provides Ro with rights to ChromaDex’s patented nicotinamide riboside ingredient Niagen®, the sole active ingredient in Tru Niagen®, for specially formulated Roman products.
“Ro has made great strides in a short period of time and we are looking forward to working with them to improve the well-being of their customers through healthy aging with Tru Niagen®,” said Frank Fazio, Senior Vice President of Global Business Development at ChromaDex.
“We look forward to working with the highly respected team at ChromaDex who has pioneered breakthrough clinical evidence surrounding Niagen®,” said George Koveos, Chief Operating Officer at Ro.
As demonstrated in published human trials, Niagen® safely and effectively increases NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) levels, which are critical to healthy cellular function and vitality. Levels of NAD+ decline with age, which can be further exacerbated by other metabolic and environmental stressors, including stress on the immune system, sleep disruption, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption.
