Supplement of the Month

Tru Niagen

In a nut shell, Tru Niagen may improve mitochondrial function (and therefore energy), may repair DNA damage, may improve sleep and brain function, may aid weight loss by speeding up metabolism, and protects the body from oxidative stress.

The following is taken from Tru Niagen’s website:

NAD (or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a vital resource found in all living cells. It plays a key role in a cell’s ability to accept and donate electrons, an important aspect of energy production at the cellular level. The human body requires it for basic life functions such as sleeping, eating, and breathing. NAD declines with age and as a result of metabolic stressors, including excessive electromagnetic radiation, over-eating, or drinking alcohol. 

In 2004, Dr. Charles Brenner discovered that nicotinamide riboside (NR) could increase levels of a vital cellular resource. This resource is a central regulator in energy metabolism and is believed to play an important role in healthy human aging. Based on Dr. Brenner’s patents and the established techniques of our parent company ChromaDex, NR was exclusively licensed and developed as NIAGEN®.

One capsule of Tru Niagen Pro® contains 500mg of NIAGEN®, a patented and FDA safety-notified form of vitamin B3 known as nicotinamide riboside (NR). Tru Niagen® is formulated without nuts or gluten. It contains no caffeine, no animal byproducts, and no artificial colors or flavors.

Tru Niagen® will start increasing NAD levels shortly after you take it and will continue to maintain those elevated NAD levels with regular supplementation. It may take some time to feel the benefits of increased NAD (promoting cellular repair, increasing cellular energy, etc.), but ultimately Tru Niagen® is helping your cells remain energized and resilient in the face of everyday stresses.*

Tru Niagen® is safe when used as directed. Its sole active ingredient Niagen® has been studied in multiple published human clinical trials and no adverse events have been attributed to its use. Niagen® has twice been successfully reviewed under FDA’s new dietary ingredient (NDI) notification program and has also been successfully notified to the FDA as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).

Over 150 scientific articles have been published on our key ingredient, nicotinamide riboside, and its benefits since its discovery as an NAD booster in 2004. The number of nicotinamide riboside studies coming out each year is steadily increasing as scientists continue to uncover the potential of this remarkable nutrient.

Dietary Stressors

by Nancy Mehlert, MS

What and how we eat can impact our body’s ability to cope with extra electromagnetic radiation. That may sound strange, but what I mean is that we often have dietary habits that ADD TO metabolic stress rather than minimize or reduce it.   Overall stress reduction on the human body is what allows for a strong immune system and effective detoxification pathways. 

Here are examples of habits that add stress to the human body, thus promoting oxidative stress and weakness.

  • Overeating, either constant eating throughout the day or eating too much at once until feeling “stuffed”
  • Dehydration
  • Excessive alcohol consumption, and especially intoxication
  • Microwaving food
  • Eating sugary foods and destabilizing blood sugar

Habits such as these add to aging caused by oxidative damage.  Alternatively, intermittent fasting, staying well hydrated, eating clean, whole food, especially vegetables, all help to keep us young, our immune systems strong, and our detoxification pathways running smoothly.
