Vitamin C Benefits Concealed for 70 Years - Rediscovered

Vitamin C was first isolated in 1928 and the chemical structure was identified in 1933. 1   It wasn't until the early 1970s that Dr. Linus Pauling recommended that the optimum daily intake of vitamin C was 2,000 milligrams (mg) and everyone should consume at least 200 mg to 250 mg per day. 2 However, as "modern" medicine and the pharmaceutical industry ramped up the health care machine, vitamin C quickly fell out of favor as it is inexpensive, easy to administer and has very few side effects. In other words, as effective as vitamin C is in prevention and treatment, you can’t make money prescribing or manufacturing it. It's important to note that most mammals can make vitamin C in the body, 3  but humans and guinea pigs must get it from their diet. Vitamin C is an essential factor in many enzyme reactions and several studies have shown that it's associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular conditions such as stroke, high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.

NAD+ Supplements (NR, NMN) and Cancer (2024)

Do NAD+ supplements   Nicotinamide Riboside  “NR” ( FAQs ) ( Anecdotes ) and NMN ( FAQs and Anecdotes ) promote cancer growth? Well, despite their various disagreements, this is one issue NAD+ experts   Dr. David Sinclair   and   Dr. Charles Brenner   appear to agree on in regards to their favorite NAD+ boosting supplements: PhD Scientists / NAD+ Experts: Dr. David Sinclair on NMN: Does NMN Stimulate Cancer Growth? Dr. Charles Brenner on NR: What are Pre-Clinical Studies Saying about Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) and its Impact on Cancer? “We Think that Higher NAD Status is Really Important for Prevention of Cancer” Medical Doctors: Dr. Hoffman M.D. on NR: “I’m Going to Keep Taking it, Keep Recommending it” Why He Recommends NR to Patients “I Take NR. I Don’t Think It’s Going to Give Me Cancer”  (11/2021) Clinical Trials for NR and Cancer: The Effect of Exercise and Nicotinamide Riboside Muscle Health and Insulin Resistance in Survivors of Childhood Cancer Nicotinamide Riboside on Mitocho

Even More Health Benefits of Niacinamide

I recently posted   an article detailing the importance of niacinamide   (aka, nicotinamide, a form of vitamin B3 or niacin) for healthy mitochondrial function and cellular energy production, and how it can help reverse obesity and leaky gut, and prevent neurodegeneration, kidney disease and heart failure. Here, I’ll review several additional conditions that can be prevented and/or treated with this inexpensive and readily available supplement. More Niacinamide Is NOT Better, There’s a Goldilocks’ Dose Keep in mind that the dosages used in the research studies discussed below do vary widely, but as a rule, I only recommend taking small doses of 50 milligrams of niacinamide three times a day. This dosage has been shown to optimize energy metabolism and boost NAD+ levels, which are foundational for everything else to work. It can be taken four times a day if you space them out. Take a dose as soon as you get up, before going to bed, and twice evenly spaced between those times. The proble
