The effects on the Mind:
Dr Abram Hoffer famously cured Bill W, the founder of alcoholics anonymous of his lifelong depression. Bill W wanted to make niacin the 13th step, however AA had been, as he said, infiltrated by that stage and he was ousted from his own operation. In 1952 Dr Hoffer showed with the very first double-blind, placebo-controlled studies in the history of psychiatry, that vitamin B-3 could cure schizophrenia. Niacin is scientifically proven to be effective against psychosis and yet the medical profession has delayed endorsing it for sixty years. For schizophrenics the natural recovery rate is 50%. With orthomolecular
medicine the recovery rate is 90%. With drugs it is 10%. If you use just drugs you won't get well. This is because mental illness is usually a biochemical illness. Schizophrenia is niacin dependency, not a deficiency.
Dr Hoffer's personal dose:
"I personally have been on 1,500 to 6,000 mg daily since 1955. The biggest danger of taking niacin is that you live longer. One of my patients is 112. She does cross country skiing and has been on niacin for 42 years".
Dr Hoffer on cholesterol:
"My colleagues and I demonstrated that niacin lowered total cholesterol in a 1954 study and we should have been given an award. But, of course, niacin is not a drug and cannot be patented, and therefore our discovery remains mainly a major irritant to the drug companies who have not been able to discover anything as safe and as effective. It is remarkable that niacin is the best for blood lipid levels and also for the psychoses".
Dr William Kaufman treated osteoarthritis with two to four grams of niacinamide daily. In a 1978 interview Dr Kaufman said "I had one patient who was so severely arthritic that I could not bend his elbows enough to measure his blood pressure. He was one of my first patients. I gave him niacinamide for a week in divided doses and then he could bend his arm. I took him off it and gave him a placebo. In a week he was back where he was before: his joints were stiff again".
Why vitamins are key:
For half a century Dr Hoffer's work proved that most illness, including mental illness, is caused by a vitamin and/or mineral deficiency. He said that patients are not deficient in drugs so why do doctors give them?. People are deficient in nutrients and doctors should give those.
Is niacin safe / Dosage :
Yes, high dose niacin supplementation is safe however it is important to be aware that niacin produces a body flush. Starting with just 50mg three times a day with a meal, building up the dose until a positive effect is experienced. Many like the flush effect and feel it efficacious however a non flush version is available as Niacinamide however it does NOT lower
cholesterol and is a little less effective.
Persons with a history of heavy alcohol use, liver disorders, diabetes, or pregnancy will especially want to have their physician monitor their use of niacin in quantity. Monitoring long-term use of niacin is a good idea for anyone. It consists of having your doctor check your liver function with a simple blood test.
It is a good idea to take all the other B-complex vitamins in a separate supplement in addition to the niacin.
