I wonder what a better dosage is for long-term supplementation: 500mg or 1g? Some sources claim 500mg is too low. Thing is that I´m on a budget, so I would prefer 500mg, but only if it does something off course. I´m 24 years old so perhaps I need less as well than others. 

 

Then there´s also a concern one needs to supplement acute release, rather than extended or sustained release, due to hightened diabetes risk. But perhaps biting/chewing an extended/sustained release pill causes it to be exact like an acute release?

Does nicotinic acid extend telomeres? Else you posted in the wrong forum.

If you want to take NA just take a couple of grams a day, at least 1g. Therapeutic dosage for heart disease is 3g. It's harmless.

The reason for avoiding extended release is not the "diabetes risk," it's because of the liver damage risk because nicotinic acid temporarily inhibits the release of triglycerides. But immediate release nicotinic acid does not pose a risk.

There is no diabetes risk, it's a myth. Nobody has gotten diabetes from taking massive dosages over years. It's only a theoretical possibility based upon an assumed mechanism but some evidence suggests that NA may exert positive effects on diabetes. A lot of vitamins and minerals have been said to potentially cause diabetes but it always turns out to be junk science.

Thank you for answering. Is it true one can ´bypass´ extended or sustained release pills by biting the pill before swallowing? I read something about it.

Now you mention it, I read some evidence NA actually lowers diabetes risk as well.

And on having to take at least 1g, can you provide some evidence of this? Some take 500mg, others 1g. And given I´m pretty young, might there be some truth to me taking 500mg being sufficient? The thing is some sites (like the niacin page of examine.com) claim one has to take at least 1 gram daily to notice benefits. But I´m not sure if they considered young people like myself when making that conclusion.

 

My bad on posting in the wrong forum. I thought this forum was generally on all anti-aging questions, given telomeres have a lot to do with increasing life span/longevity. Guess I have to duplicate this post in another forum now.

500mg works obviously but I don't think it's the same as the higher dosages.

Nicotinic acid is more for older people than it is for younger people.

Just to be completely sure, nicotinamide (niacinamide) does not cause NAD+ to rise right? As it doesn´t cause any flush, which I read is essential for NAD+.

Of course it does, and rather more than niacin.

Its very important to take some of methyl donors with niacin/niacinamide. Some people even complain that they get depression when they take some NAD precursor.

I would suggest taking an equal amount of ribose with nicotinamide. They both go into NAD and ATP production, and ribose is not plentiful in cells. A shortage of ribose can produce CFS. See--

 

 

The use of D-ribose in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia: a pilot study.

 

RESULTS:
D-ribose, which was well-tolerated, resulted in a significant improvement in all five visual analog scale (VAS) categories: energy; sleep; mental clarity; pain intensity; and well-being, as well as an improvement in patients' global assessment. Approximately 66% of patients experienced significant improvement while on D-ribose, with an average increase in energy on the VAS of 45% and an average improvement in overall well-being of 30% (p < 0.0001).
 
CONCLUSIONS:
D-ribose significantly reduced clinical symptoms in patients suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
