NR Does Not Improve Mitochondrial Function or NAD+ Content in Human Skeletal Muscle After Long-Term Administration

A long-term clinical study from Denmark showed that increased nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) content and improved mitochondrial function induced by nicotinamide riboside (NR) supplementation in mouse skeletal muscle does not translate into humans.
