Foods rich in niacin
A clinical trial on the effectiveness of niacin supplementation in Parkinson's disease patients has recently been published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience. The link between niacin and Parkinson’s disease Niacin is a form of vitamin B3 that is commonly manufactured as a dietary supplement. Patients with Parkinson’s have considerably lower levels of vitamin B3 compared...
Niacin is a common dietary supplement with a long research history and more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Recent human trials have shed new light on its possible role in addressing mitochondrial dysfunction and aging. What is niacin? Niacin is a form of water-soluble vitamin B3. It was discovered in 1937 by biochemist...
Niacin-rich foods
A possible new role for niacin has been discovered in the fight against brain cancer. An old vitamin  Niacin is a form of vitamin B3 and has been a popular supplement since its discovery in 1937 by the researcher Conrad Elvehjem.

Niacin
Researchers have concluded a human trial using niacin, a very old vitamin discovered over 80 years ago, and have shown that it can increase the presence of an energy compound essential to cellular function. Niacin and NAD+ Niacin is a form of water-soluble vitamin B3 and has been known since American biochemist Conrad Elvehjem identified...
Today, we want to highlight a recent human trial of the popular supplement nicotinamide riboside, a compound that has been shown in mice to restore NAD+ levels. The compound has had impressive results against some aspects of aging in mouse studies, and there is now some more data for NR in humans [1]. What is...
This month, we decided to do the Journal Club a bit earlier than usual to coincide with the launch of the NAD+ Mouse Project over at Lifespan.io. As the project is testing to see if NAD+ repletion increases lifespan, we thought that it would be an ideal time to explore NAD+ biology and take a...
