IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ChromaDex Corp. (CDXC), an innovative natural products company that provides proprietary ingredients and science-based solutions to the dietary supplement, food and beverage, animal health, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, announced today that Ryan Dellinger, Ph.D., director of scientific affairs at ChromaDex, will speak at the 248th American Chemical Society National Meeting on August 10-14.
Dr. Dellinger, who will present on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, will speak at the Division of Agricultural and Food Chemistry's session on high performance foods and beverages about the clinical evaluation of PURENERGY®, ChromaDex's novel caffeine ingredient.
In May 2014, ChromaDex announced the initiation of the second human clinical trial for PURENERGY®. PURENERGY® is an innovative patented caffeine ingredient that is a cocrystal combination of caffeine and ChromaDex's patented pTeroPure® pterostilbene. The combination forms a unique crystalline structure that has superior benefits as compared to caffeine alone. Recently, caffeinated energy products have come under increased regulatory and political scrutiny because of the possible risks associated with consuming high amounts of caffeine. PURENERGY® offers product formulators a unique solution to reduce total caffeine content while optimizing the consumer experience.
In addition to serving as a novel caffeine alternative, PURENERGY™ has additional health benefits stemming from its cocrystal formulation with ChromaDex's patented pTeroPure® pterostilbene, which has shown great promise for supporting heart health, cognitive function, anti-aging, weight loss and other metabolic functions. The findings from the first clinical trial of the pure pTeroPure® (pterostilbene) compound, which were presented in September 2012 at the American Heart Association's High Blood Pressure Research 2012 Scientific Sessions, showed that pTeroPure® (pterostilbene) significantly reduced blood pressure in adults. pTeroPure® was named the 2010 North American Most Promising Ingredient of the Year by the independent research company Frost & Sullivan.
ChromaDex is an innovative natural products company that discovers, acquires, develops and commercializes proprietary-based ingredient technologies through its unique business model that utilizes its wholly owned synergistic business units, including ingredient technologies, natural product fine chemicals (known as "phytochemicals"), chemistry and analytical testing services and product regulatory and safety consulting (as Spherix Consulting). The company provides seamless science-based solutions to the nutritional supplement, food and beverage, animal health, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The ChromaDex ingredient technologies unit includes products backed with extensive scientific research and intellectual property. Its ingredient portfolio includes pTeroPure® pterostilbene; ProC3G®, a natural black rice containing cyanidin-3-glucoside; PURENERGY®, a caffeine-pTeroPure® co-crystal; and NIAGEN™, its recently launched branded nicotinamide riboside, a novel next-generation no-flush B vitamin.
