Niacinamide fights against both sun damage such as discoloration and skin cancers and acne. One product line called NIA 24 has a particularly effective form of Niacinamide. (I use and recommend it)
However, the MOST important anti-aging product is a high potency (SPF) sunscreen, using a broad brimmed hat and avoiding sun. Happy aging! ...Read more
A large amount: The upper limit of the dose of niacinamide is over 3 grams. Most patients don't need nearly that much or can't take that much due to side effects such as flushing or diarrhea. Niacin is a B vitamin and thus is water soluble. It is extremely hard to overdose on Niacinamide and damage your liver. ...Read more
Lipid effect, flush: Niacin is a b vitamin that is often used to treat lipid (cholesterol and triglyceride) disorders. Nicotinamide is another vitamin in the vitamin b group. Although Niacin and nicotinamide are identical in their vitamin activity, nicotinamide has no significant cholesterol or triglyceride effects. Also, nicotinamide does not cause skin flushihg that can be a limitation to use of niacin. ...Read more
Good question.: The niacinamide form of Niacin is a b vitamin (it's in your cereal) which does not lower cholesterol like the nicotinic acid form of niacin. Since nicotinic acid causes flushing, makers have tried changing the formulation so it's "flush-free" but will still lower cholesterol. The active ingredient of your cholesterol-lowering Niacin preparation should always be nicotinic acid. ...Read more
Niacin is best: No-flush Niacin can either refer to a slow release preparation or inositol. Slow release preparations are better tolerated than immediate release products, but the lipid lowering effects are somewhat less potent than immediate or extended release niacin. For comparable efficacy a higher dose of slow release is usually needed. Inositol and niacinamide not improve lipids and should be avoided. ...Read more

Could you please tell if and how NIACIN (or NIACINAMIDE) deficiency play any role in synthesis of TETRAHYDROBIOPTERIN? Thank you.
Niacin deficiency would be expected to reduce synthesis as Niacin is needed to produce NADP and NADP is a co-factor in converting Dihydrobiopterin into Tetrahydrobiopterin, which is needed to synthesize serotonin, dopamine, melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine and nitric oxide and to metabolize phenylalanine.
Fortunately supplemental niacin and niacineamide are affordable and readily available. ...Read more

Are products with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, cholesterol and niacinamide generally helpful for oily, sensitive facial skin Dx seborrheic dermatitis?
No: These are very useful for DRY skin and eczema. Seborrheic dermatitis will respond to an azole cream such as ketoconazole, clotrimazole, or miconazole. Topical steroids are very effective but on the face calcineurin inhibitors are preferred. Washing with a dandruff shampoo, typically in a shower, can be very beneficial. Some meds and vitamins aggravate it. ...Read more
