Niacinamide improves glucose metabolism and muscle health in humans

Niacinamide probably does not need in introduction to the people reading my posts. However, despite the multitude of animal studies demonstrating beneficial effects of this vitamin in virtually every chronic condition (and especially conditions associated with disturbed glucose metabolism), human studies with it are very scarce. The study below is one of those rare human … Read more

Niacinamide as treatment for scleroderma (systemic sclerosis)

Yet another “incurable” disease has been demonstrated to be nothing more but energetic deficiency in disguise. According to mainstream medicine, scleroderma (also known as systemic sclerosis) is an incurable chronic, autoimmune, progressive, fibrotic disease that attacks virtually all organs and can lead to significant disability and even death if it affects some of the more … Read more

Alcohol causes liver (and other organ) damage by lowering NAD/NADH ratio

A neat little study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role of energy and optimal redox status in a public health issue that has now reached catastrophic proportions. Namely, alcohol-related morbidity and mortality. Those have always been an issue in any developed country but since the start of the “pandemic” have exacerbated dramatically. As most … Read more

Vitamin B3 may treat “incurable” muscle disease

Over the last 2-3 years I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of studies and popular press articles using the keywords “controversial”, “paradox”, “paradigm shift”, “ameliorates an incurable condition X”, etc. This is just a thinly veiled attempt to mask the collapse of the corrupt dogma that has controlled medicine for more than … Read more

Raising NAD levels may be therapeutic for COVID-19

A rather timely study, which demonstrates once again the crucial role energy plays even in “non-metabolic” diseases such as viral infections. At this point, even mainstream medicine admits that every function of the organism requires energy, so it would be plausible to expect an organism with higher energy reserves to be better able to defend … Read more

Low-dose (but not high) niacinamide reverses reproductive decline in old females

A great new study, which once again confirms the importance of metabolism in “aging” disorders such as infertility (both female and male) and menopause. More specifically, it was the increase in NAD/NADH ratio that was the main mechanism of action behind the beneficial effects of nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) the study below discovered. Now, the study … Read more

Increased fatty acid synthesis (FAS) is simply a sign of oxygen deficiency / low metabolism

Just a quick post on a study that provides insight as to how increased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) can “paradoxically” result in increased FAS as well, thus leading to a vicious cycle most commonly seen in diabetes and cancer. One of my recent posts discussed a much more recent study that demonstrated the same effect … Read more

Dietary niacinamide (B3) deficiency may be a cause of schizophrenia

As many of my readers know, the link between niacinamide and schizophrenia dates back at least the 1950s and possibly much earlier. The late Abram Hoffer, one of the founders of the orthomolecular approach, was convinced that stress was a huge factor in mental illness and ran several successful trials with high dose niacin/niacinamide as … Read more

Niacinamide may restore female fertility in old age

The mainstream medical dogma is that after the onset of menopause, female reproductive potential is essentially zero. I posted a thread recently that challenged that dogma and demonstrated that infertility is essentially an energetic dysfunction process and can be reversed with exposure to red light. Fertility depends on metabollism (ATP), not age Now, the study … Read more

Niacinamide may help treat/reverse heart disease

Yet another study showing the beneficial effects of improving mitochondrial function. This time, the study looked at heart health and found that NAD precursors like niacinamide and nicotinamide riboside (NR) can help prevent the decline in mitochondrial function and oxygen consumption driven by various stresses, including toxic assaults and calcium overload. The study showed that … Read more
