Description

Key ingredients include Nicotinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 that boosts cellular energy in photodamaged skin. UV rays inhibit adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production, which prevents optimal skin immunity and DNA repair. Enhancing ATP production with oral nicotinamide protects from UV immunosuppression, encourages DNA repair, and has anti-inflammatory effects.

Dr Webster’s Recommendations: Nicotinamide Capsules at a dose of 500mg twice daily, has been shown to reduce actinic keratosis (AK) by about 35% following two months of treatment. Therefore, anyone who has had multiple actinic keratoses or non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) should be taking Nicotinamide 500mg twice a day on a regular basis.
The clinical studies have shown that if you take less than 3 grams a day of Nicotinamide the side effects are virtually nil.

Nicotinamide is a flush-free form of Vitamin B3.
