Is Niacin a NAD+ precursor, can it work with NMN?

Post by canadahealthy » Sun Apr 26, 2020 7:45 pm

I have heard occasional references to Vitamin B3, which I assume means Niacin, or nicotinic acid.

Having once experienced the Niacin flush, it occurs to me that it can reach many receptors from head to toe.

So I wonder, is Niacin itself a proven NAD+ precursor? Can it be used with NMN as an affective booster?

I would assume there has already been research on this, and since I can't access research like some on here, i would like to get this addressed for those of us with less access to current research.

I don't think it is a precursor to NAD+, but NAD and NADP (i think the missing plus sign may be significant).

I certainly think it is important to have in one's diet. Perhaps Fred or another member can weigh in on its significance. I think it is helpful to take in small amounts.

Here is the Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niacin
Taking:
Liposomal Curcumin / Resveratrol
NMN 500mg
Melatonin 1mg (am)
Blueberry extract 1g
Berberine 250mg
Vitamin E tocotrienols 50 mg
Astragalus 500 mg
Methyl B12 5000 mcg 3x/week
Methyl Folate 1000 mcg 1-3/week

My understanding is that it isn't it needs to be NR NMN or NAD. Otherwise it is a vitamin of some value, but not as important as the derivatives.

Well this is encouraging. My mom gets 100mg daily with her multivitamin. Maybe i could supplement that with another 100mg.

I don't want her to experience the niacin flush, so will definitely keep the dosage low. But these results show great promise

I'm glad i posted this question.

Every little tool helps, especially when we can just go to the pharmacy and pick it off the shelf.
