Quality Is in Our DNA

From the day ChromaDex was formed in 1999, our relationships with leading universities and scientific institutions have informed our work and helped us build the company brick by brick. The brightest minds in scientific innovation have led us in an undying pursuit of quality and high standards in all that we do. With our growth and the commercialization of nicotinamide riboside (NR) as Niagen®, we’ve maintained scientific rigor and cutting-edge manufacturing practices.

The FDA successfully reviewed Niagen in 2018 under its New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification program, and our ingredient was successfully notified as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) in 2016. In 2019, the European Commission declared NR a novel food, following positive opinion from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).

Transparency and Authenticity Are Our Obligations

Every lot of Tru Niagen® is tested for potency, safety, and purity, and certificates of analysis are readily available so consumers can trace their products directly to our lab.

All batches are tested to ensure compliance to specifications and label claims, including potency through end of shelf life. A total of 22 tests (internal and third-party) are conducted in the testing and release of Tru Niagen products, including the testing of the raw Niagen ingredient.

Our laboratories are ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited. All manufacturing facilities are visited and inspected frequently by our internal inspectors and third-party certifiers including NSF, Alkemist Assured, Star-K (Kosher), and IFANCA (Halal).

The Science Never Stops

We prioritize strong scientific rigor and evidence above all. To date, we’ve participated in over 250 global scientific research collaborations through the ChromaDex External Research Program (CERP™). More than 20 published human clinical studies have demonstrated the safety and/or efficacy of Niagen in elevating NAD+, and we continue to pioneer research on the benefits of our products to help improve overall health and address aging at the cellular level.
