Niacinamide Plus Ingredients
Niacinamide Plus includes the following ingredients: Niacinamide, Phosphatidylserine and Acetyl-L Carnitine.
The formula is a blend of Niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3), Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Phosphatidylserine which, according to the manufacturer, helps improve the utilization and efficiency of the Niacinamide. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, an essential vitamin used to treat osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as various joint and skin diseases.
Vitamin B3 has proven effective for the treatment and prevention of Niacin deficiency derived conditions (such as pellagra). Research results are still inconclusive in what concerns benefit areas such as diabetes, heart disease, diarrhea or Alzheimer’s disease.
Another important compound of Niacinamide Plus is Phosphatidylserine, a chemical extracted from soybeans. While the substance has been highly disputed in what concerns its effects on reducing the risk of dementia or cognitive dysfunction, FDA stated that it may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive dysfunction in the elderly.
Dosage depends on the purpose for which the product is used. Therefore for those who wish to prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s the dosage is one to two 500 mg capsules per day, for a person with early onset of Alzheimer’s the dose is three to four 500 mg capsules per day, whereas for those in the advanced stages a four to six capsules dosage is recommended .
The manufacturer mentions a number of side effects which could be generated by a reaction to Niacinamide, such as itching, nausea, rashes, breathing difficulty or swelling of the tongue. There are no consumer reviews regarding the product.
- Good price (approximately $30 for a two-month supply)
- Free sample available on order
- Promotional offers available on the manufacturer’s website.
- The main benefit claim is not backed up by clear scientific evidence
- Potential side effects associated to Vitamin B3 allergy
Niacinamide Plus’ core marketed benefit is that it helps prevent or treat Alzheimer’s disease. Scientific research so far regarding Niacinamide’s (or any other ingredients in the formula for that matter) effect on this disease is yet to be completed, since a clear conclusion has not been yet formulated.
The manufacturer of the formula is an experienced manufacturer. There are no consumer reviews available for Niacinamide Plus, so a fair assessment of its effectiveness is not possible at this point.
The manufacturer mentions a few side effects that might occur in case of Vitamin B3 allergy; therefore, it is advised you first consult a pharmacist or a healthcare professional.
