Vitamin B3 compound boosts mitochondria [mouse]

Nicotinamide riboside, a vitamin B3, is effective to delayed early- and late-stage disease progression, via mitochondrial biogenesis in skeletal muscle and brown adipose tissue, thereby preventing mitochondrial ultrastructure abnormalities and mtDNA deletion formation.
