Researchers of a recent study have found that niacin (also known as vitamin B3) slows down the progression of Alzheimers in a mouse model. Niacin seems to change microglia response to amyloid plaques.

B3 has different forms, where nicotinamide riboside (NR) is the most important one in case of Parkinson’s. It serves as a raw material for the essential metabolic factor NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), which is vital to various cellular processes, including energy metabolism, DNA damage repair, control of gene expression and stress resistance of our brain […]
