Study Finds Magic Vitamin Can Halt Aging and Increase Lifespan

Civilization, art, language… searching for ways to transcend the natural order is, well… in our nature. Case in point: the endless, hapless, and exceedingly expensive quest for the fountain of youth.

For centuries, our pursuit to defy father time has led us down a fascinating path. It drove Cleopatra to bathe in sour donkey’s milk. It fuelled the back-alley machinations of ancient Chinese alchemists. And, for better or worse, it even inspired this:

We all want to look and feel younger and we all want to live as long as we possibly can. Sure, it drives us to do wacky things and undergo costly procedures. It also, not surprisingly, causes us to open our wallets.

The anti-aging industry rakes in billions of dollars a year. Billions of dollars that fund sports cars and expensive vacations, sure… but also, billions of dollars that fund groundbreaking research projects. One such project is ChromaDex’s recent work with the so-called “Magic” vitamin, Niagen Nicotinamide Riboside.

Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the vitamin, the science, and the very serious implications of this anti-aging superstar.
