The study researchers concluded that nicotinamide
riboside is a promising approach to protecting against Parkinson's disease and likely other degenerative diseases of the nervous system.
overload may play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
Further, 'it would be worthwhile to determine whether nicotinamide
would also be useful for high-risk melanoma patients', Halliday added.

The investigators opted to test nicotinamide
as it counters both of these events.
Online, some retailers offered nicotinamide
for prices ranging from a nickel to a dollar a tablet, sometimes combined with other things.

Streptozotocin (Keocyt, Val de Reuil, France), Nicotinamide
(Sigma-Aldrich St Louis, MO, USA), PSO (Techno Parse Company, Tehran, Iran), and unpurified SBO (Animal Food Industry, Shiraz, Iran) were used.
Diabetes was induced by STZ (60 mg/kg), 15 min after the intraperitoneal administration of nicotinamide

In an article in the journal Cell Metabolism, researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College here and at Polytechnic School in Lausanne, Switzerland, say they found high doses of nicotinamide
riboside (NR), a unique form of vitamin B3 that is found in small quantities of milk may control weight gain as well as increase muscle performance, improve energy expenditure and prevent diabetes development, all without side effects.
The particles, called nicotinamide
riboside, are found in tiny quantities and are also believed to prevent diabetes.
