Niacin, Vitamin B3, originally named “nicotinic acid” is a nutrient that goes back to the beginning of life.  It plays a major role in genetics (via NAD, NADP and related molecules, brain function, cancer prevention, heart disease, and detoxification of fat-seeking toxins.

While it requires finesse in its management, it is a magnificent anti-aging and anti-cancer agent. The RDA of 18 mg is way too low. Hoffer took 3,000 – 4,500 mg a day of niacin, but most people struggle even with 25 to 50 mg.  Separately niacinamide can be taken at 500 mg twice a day which does not have the same scope as niacin but is proven to help with skin cancer (and possibly other cancers as well; click here for more)
