Important Disclosures

1. This is my personal website

All opinions are my own. Nobody writes here but me.

2. Supplements Are Not Medicines

Health Supplements like nicotinamide riboside are not intended to cure or treat any disease, condition, or illness.

3. No Medical Advice

I am a lawyer and a journalist, not a doctor, and I offer no medical advice. But I do follow the science, and I can bring to your attention

some interesting studies. You can read more about me here. And check with your physician -- your physician can look at this research, too.

4. Commercial Affiliations

I am a ChromaDex shareholder, and a marketing affiliate for Amazon and Rakuten. As a result, I will sometimes mention or recommend products that I endorse, like Tru Niagen, which I take every day. I may earn a small commission from qualifying purchases if you were referred directly from this site and completed a purchase. [Thank you!] You can read more about our advertising, privacy, and data collection policies here

Why Are There So Many Disclosures On This Site?

It's required by federal law...

Under federal law, pharmaceuticals can treat, cure, and prevent diseases, and health supplements can help you in other ways. So if you are marketing Vitamin A or C, you cannot claim that they cure night-blindness or scurvy, even if they do and everyone knows it. For those claims to be made, you have to be marketing it as a pharmaceutical.

Because this website pays the bills with affiliate revenue from sponsored links (thank you for visiting them!), federal law requires that we be very clear that we are not marketing pharmaceuticals, and that the health supplements mentioned here are not intended to treat, cure, or prevent any disease. That is what the law requires, and we want to be super-clear about that.
