Nicotinamide Prevents Skin Cancers

Home / Blog / Anti-Aging Treatments / Nicotinamide Prevents Skin Cancers

Basal cell skin cancers and squamous cell skin cancers are the most common cancers in Caucasians.  Squamous cell cancers are of greater concern because of their potential to metastasize, especially those on the head and neck.

 

Nicotinamide is a form of vitamin B3.  It  boosts cellular energy and enhances repair of DNA that is damaged by ultraviolet radiation.

 

The study found that  500mg of Nicotinamide  taken twice a day resulted in the decrease rate in the following cancers:

 

Basal cell 20% lower

Squamous cell  30% lower

Actinic keratosis  13% lower
