The company is an American company founded in 1987, which manufactures and markets a variety of vitamins and minerals, natural dietary supplements and vitamin skin creams. Niacinamide Plus is supposed to help patients suffering from early stage or advanced Alzheimer’s and as well for those who wish to prevent the onset of the disease, although research regarding Niacinamide’s actual effectiveness in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s is still inconclusive.

Promoted as a dietary supplement which should prove beneficial for people who have Alzheimer’s disease or just wanting to avoid its existence, Niacinamide Plus contains a combination of Phosphatidylserine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, and Niacinamide. Evidence has shown that Niacinamide is a part of the B-vitamin group. It has demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial to patients that suffer from skin conditions. Also, some studies have shown that niacinamide dissolves out the tangles and the gunk which cause the problems that worsen Alzheimer’s diseases. Therefore, products based on niacinamide may prove effective in curing or slowing the effects of Alzheimer’s. Unwanted side effects related to niacinamide treatment include mouth pains, dizziness, upset stomach and intestinal gas.

Another important compound of Niacinamide Plus is phosphatidylserine, a chemical that was once obtained from cow brains. It has generally been used as a supplementation helpful for people who have Alzheimer’s, attention deficit-hyperactivity and age-related decline. The treatment with phosphatidylserine supplementation should be followed from 6 to 12 weeks to obtain results. With doses of 300 mg, some side effects may occur, such as insomnia and upset stomach.

Bottom Line

6) Our Bottom Line

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.
