There seems to be some confusion between nicotinamide and niacinamide in the text. the diagram appears to be correct.

I read all the original article comments, and some people are saying niacinamide and nicotinamide are the same thing. That’s not true, is it? And the one recommended to be taken is niacinamide, correct? I’d like for this question to be answered and this distinction clarified.

It appears that the two are the same after reading several other articles. Niacinamide is the common name and is frequently in parentheses after nicotinimide in those texts. Their prices also spear to be the same.

Yes, they are the same thing.

Any thoughts on NAD+ helping to fuel cancer?

As a stage 4 colon cancer survivor (over 9 years now) this is forefront on my mind when looking at any supplement.

So if you purchase the special spoons and Niacinamide, then how much should you take? How so you know you are taking the correct amount?

I copied this from this article above… “Ideally you buy niacinamide powder and use 1 to 1/2 of 1/64th of a teaspoon three times a day (25-50 mg).

You will need special measuring spoons to measure this small a dose. This is important as more is most definitely not better and much worse. If you use too much you will actually inhibit sirtuins which are important longevity proteins.”

The brand of niacinamide referenced is not available, but I was able to get a version from Throne that is 500 mg per capsule. Taking a 1/10th dose of this thrice daily will be somewhat of a challenge, and I thought I could dilute one capsule in water and take 1/10th of that instead. Not sure if this would remain stable for the 3+ days I'd use it up, but thought I'd at least keep it refrigerated. Maybe a smaller dose (25 or 50 mg) could be added to the Mercola supplement offerings at some point?

I think NMN in capsule form help to digest it properly; once you dissolve your NMN in water, you are going to waste most of it!

I have enough vitamin B three for everybody on planet Earth and an 8 ounce package I purchased and it suggests 16 teaspoon of 500 mg which is 3125% of the daily requirement.

In the text of the transcript there is seems to be a color link to special measuring spoons so now, I’ve got to go through my saved PDF documents before sub stack was published so I could find the document with the link and I hope it works.

Dear Dr. Mercola please read this!

I would appreciate it if you put a PDF transcript on your sub stack library as well so I don’t have to go digging through archives of your 48 hour content every time I want to find something that relates to a topic I’m just listening to or watching.

I purchased substack not only for the video and the audio but I thought I was also going to get the PDF transcripts

Thank you,

I see there are dictation errors that I didn’t catch in my reply above, the dosage suggested on the package is 1/6 of a teaspoon 500 mg which of course is way more than what’s needed.

PLEASE make it possible to EDIT our own comments after posting. Even YouTube which loves to censor anything off-narrative affords that capability.

After digging through my daily PDF records I did find the link to the correct spoons.

It’s a good thing that I got the transcript when it was available because as I said above they’re not open on sub stack.

So if I find something on sub stack that I didn’t get a chance to read in the 48 hours when it was live, I can’t get a copy of a transcript for which the links to some of the specifics RN.

For everyone’s benefit her bothers to read through my venting, These are the spoons that were linked to and Dr. Mercola’s transcript off of the article when it was published back in March:

New Star Foodservice 42924 Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons Set, Mini https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KH9PSNI/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_api_i_9AWMF854HM55R775JPNB

To all of you want the right spoons, “you’re welcome!“

To Dr. Mercola: you need to fix this problem by publishing the transcripts and also getting sub stack to let us edit our own comments.

You’re not making it as easy as you could or should for those of us that paid for this content.
