131: The Best Form of Niacin for Anti-Aging

Niacin, niacinamide, nicotinamide riboside, nicotinamide mononucleotide, oh my! 🙉

Which form should you take for anti-aging? In this episode, I recommend nicotinamide riboside (NR). It’s better at increase NAD+ levels than niacin or niacinamide. It’s probably equal to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), but NMN hasn’t been studied as well. NMN is probably absorbed as NR anyway, and might have lower absorption if your intestines are damaged.

Tune in for the details of why I’m making this recommendation.

Here’s a massive 2-part podcast series I did on niacin with Alex Leaf, which has 52 scientific references:
