Scott Frohman, Chief Executive Officer of Vaporin, commented, "NIAGEN™ and PURENERGY™ are innovative, novel ingredients featuring multiple benefits including increased energy and metabolism, both of which should have broad appeal to our customer base. Incorporating these ingredients into the Vaporin product portfolio is not only a competitive advantage for our brand and product base, but also a key differentiator in our market.

ChromaDex® is an innovative natural products company that discovers, acquires, develops and commercializes proprietary-based ingredient technologies through its unique business model. ChromaDex® provides seamless science-based solutions to the dietary supplement, food & beverage, animal health, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.
NIAGEN™ is the first and only commercially available form of NR, a naturally-occurring vitamin B3 derivative. NR, which is found in the whey fraction of milk and beer, is a potent precursor to NAD+ in the cell. NAD+ is essential to healthy cell metabolism.
PURENERGY™ caffeine alternative is a patented co-crystal ingredient comprised of caffeine and ChromaDex's pTeroPure® pterostilbene, a potent anti-oxidant found in blueberries. The first human study of PURENERGY™ demonstrated the ingredient delivers 30 percent more caffeine, stays in the blood stream longer, and is absorbed more slowly than ordinary caffeine. With PURENERGY™, formulators of energy products may have the ability to reduce the total amount of caffeine in their products by as much as 50% without sacrificing consumers' expectations from such products.
