Niacinamide, or nicotinamide, is one of two forms of vitamin B3 (the other being niacin), now available to buy in vegetarian capsules at Supersmart's online catalogue. Niacinamide is essential for hundreds of enzymatic reactions; research has shown its benefits in arthritis, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stress and stroke.
Gene therapy research has also increased interest in niacinamide: a gene promoting longevity called Sir2 (silent information regulator 2) produces a protein, Sir2p, which extends the lifespan of cells. It controls the rate of cell aging by regulating the production of genetic 'waste products' the accumulation of which destroys the cell.
This protein is dependent on its activity on the intracellular presence of nicotinamide-adenine-dinucleotide (NAD). Niacinamide supplementation with vegetarian capsules helps to directly increase intracellular NAD levels and thus the activity of the anti-aging protein Sir2p. Niacinamide is thus emerging as a first-generation tool in anti-aging gene therapy. This safe, effective and inexpensive nutrient represents an essential element of your anti-aging program.

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defenses, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Aging is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the aging process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
