Popular vitamin supplement increases cancer risk and brain metastasis
Researchers at the University of Missouri made this discovery when they used bioluminescent imaging to study the effects of nicotinamide-riboside supplements inside the body.
In previous studies, commercial dietary supplements such as nicotinamide riboside, a form vitamin B3, have been linked to health benefits for cardiovascular, metabolic and neurological conditions. New research by the University of Missouri has shown that NR can actually increase your risk of developing serious diseases, such as cancer.
Supplements containing nicotinamide riboside are often marketed as NAD+ boosters claimed benefits including increased energy, anti-aging/longevity/healthy aging, improved cellular energy metabolism and repair, increased vitality, and improved heart health.
