Jarrow Formulas Introduces Nicotinamide Riboside

LOS ANGELES - December 14, 2015 - Jarrow Formulas®, a formulator and supplier of superior nutritional supplements, announces the release of Nicotinamide Riboside

Jarrow Formulas® new Nicotinamide Riboside product utilizes Niagen® to support mitochondrial energy production*.

Niagen® (nicotinamide riboside chloride) is an efficient precursor to  nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and has been shown to boost NAD+  levels.* NAD+, a metabolite of vitamin B3 (niacin), is essential to mitochondrial function and enables cells to convert both glucose and fatty acids to energy.* NAD+ is involved in sustaining energy, neural health and healthy aging.*

NAD+ is a critically important cellular cofactor that is required for fuel utilization and function of every cell in the human body. When fuel is oxidized, NAD+ is converted to NADH for cellular energy production.

Levels of NAD+ within cells decline precipitously with aging as well as with high caloric intake, which are both associated with compromised metabolic function and many degenerations. Increasing cellular NAD+ such as by caloric restriction, fasting, and exercise, promotes healthy mitochondrial function and energy expenditure.*

"NAD+ is an essential enzyme co-factor that substantially mediates energy metabolism and other cellular functions,"* says Anthony Thomas Ph.D., Jarrow Formulas Technical Support/Scientific Affairs. "Increased energy consumption/reduced energy expenditure, aging, and many pathological conditions result in reduced cellular NAD+ availability, which negatively impact cellular functions (e.g., energy metabolism, protective response to stress, DNA damage repair)."*
