Another fabulous book to add to my health library. I'm still a newbie at using niacin. Haven't quite gotten over that fear of the heat/flush that niacin brings on every time. Niacin is a wonder vitamin though. Totally recommend this book to everybody looking for ways to stay healthy, because this book is worth its weight in gold. ...more

I am still currently reading this book, but I wanted to pass on some Information on How well Niacin worked for me.
I am a 43 yr old Male who suffers from bipolar disorder a side effect from brain surgery for Hydrocephalus, and I started taking the Niacin for the bipolar issues and It was like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, I am a new man from the Niacin and I praise God for that.

Not light reading but the authors gave convincing evidence of the benefits of taking megadoses of niacin and some other vitamins for certain ailments. I was convinced! I will continue taking my vitamins along with an additional healthy dose of niacin in spite of the recent "bad news" we hear from the news media about vitamin supplementation. It seems that as I had suspected the bad hype on vitamins comes from the drug companies. Vitamins and good health are bad for their business! Niacin has bee ...more

Wish they would correct the typos above. Fantastic book. What really strikes me (and the author points out as well) is that good research has been done showing that treatments with niacin are effective for things like schizophrenia and elevated blood fats yet the medical establishment pays little attention to this and we all know why. Statins are a billion dollar industry yet niacin works more effectively and without side effects. Sad, especially for those who could be helped. There are a myriad ...more

I kind of did all of this backwards. First I started taking niacin and only read this book to explain for myself all the mental clarity and health benefits I undoubtedly felt since I started. I would like to recommend this to a lot of people, but I doubt anyone would take it seriously and get pass the flushing. Too bad though........

Interesting to read how niacin was used as a treatment! Makes a good argument about nutritional deficiency and dependency and why that results in the disorders and illness we frequently see today. For example a study of delinquents and people with violent personalities showed specific mineral deficiencies. Talked about schizophrenia ( and a couple of others) as an evolutionary advantage, the trade-off is their inability to produce B3 and therefore fall in the dependency category. Addresses anxie ...more

Important cheap alternative to pharmaceutical drugs w/o side effects and longer healthier life

As always big pharma and the medical establishment are lying and trying to keep us in the dark! Must read for anybody who wants to control their own health. Cure schizophrenia, bleeding gums, high cholesterol etc. A little on the technical side for layperson hence 4 stars. Otherwise great read!
Very Informative and Unique

If you are into orthomolecular science a must read. Niacin is one of the most important nutritional supplements. The book gives many true life examples. I strongly suggest it.

i had extreme reaction to trying perscription Niacin. Reading this book helped explain why. I am willing to try adding this again as an experiment to see if i can handle it better this time. Going with a over the counter version this time as per usual big pharma has screwed over Niacin

Niacin: The Wonder Drug

Although very technical reading, it has great information and makes you wonder why you are not taking Niacin. Read it! Take niacin.
