Science pioneer with renowned international reputation
TRU NIAGEN is manufactured by US ProHealthspan. The co-founder Dr Charles Brenner is the world’s foremost authority on NAD+ metabolism. In 2004, he discovered that NR is a natural product derived from milk and is the unanticipated vitamin precursor of NAD+ in organisms from yeast to human beings. In 35 additional publications and issued patents on NAD+, Dr Brenner has identified previously unknown steps in NAD+ metabolism, which show that NR increases sirtuin activity and lifespan in model systems. He developed the technology to quantify the NAD+ metabolome in any cell system, including human blood.
