Vitamin B3 Restores Memory Loss Associated with Alzheimers Disease

New research shows that Vitamin B3, also called nicotinamide, can restore memory loss associated with Alzheimers disease. UCI scientists gave this water-soluble vitamin to mice bred to develop plaques and tangles, the two brain lesions that characterize Alzheimers disease. Mice that received the treatment had lower levels of phosphorylated tau, a protein in the brain that can lead to the development of tangles, than untreated mice. These findings suggest that Vitamin B3, often used in energy drinks, might be a safe and effective therapy for people with Alzheimers disease. UC Irvine has received funding to conduct a clinical trial to test Vitamin B3 in humans with the disease.
