NR and NR Chloride

In addition to nicotinamide riboside there is also nicotinamide riboside chloride. Which one does everyone take and why? Does it really matter?

The chloride salt is bound to NR to stabilise it. The tradename "Niagen" is the chloride form and was first to market.

So all the NR that is sold as a supplement is in fact NR chloride? Some brands don't specifically say niagen or NR chloride. Just NR.

Elysium used Niagen from the beginning. Now the source or form of NR in Elysium's Basis is unknown. True Niagen, Thorne and LEF use Niagen.
