Niacinamide – A Promising Supplement to Prevent Melanoma in High-Risk Patients

According to a group of researchers from University of Sydney, niacinamide has showcased photo-protective effects against melanoma development mechanisms. In addition, in vitro analyses have represented niacinamide’s potential to reduce melanoma cell proliferation and accelerate apoptosis. Induction of melanoma involves inflammation, immunosuppression, and DNA damage. According to cellular studies, niacinamide enhances DNA repair, reduces ultra-violet-induced immunosuppression, and offers anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. These aspects, in coordination with reductions attained in non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) incidences, and in vitro evidences, are likely to forge niacinamide as a promising supplement for preventing melanoma in high-risk patients. Randomized placebo-controlled trails are now being acquitted for determining the safety and efficacy of niacinamide in preventing melanoma induction.

After years of remaining the mainstay drug for cholesterol therapy, niacin is no longer being considered to be prescribed for patients, as it has recently been related to increased risk of mortality, and adverse side effects. Niacin is losing its position of being beneficial in reducing strokes and heart attacks. Elder population with cardiovascular diseases, under age-group 50-80, who consumed extended release niacin and laropiprant (to reduce face flushing caused by niacin), have shown no reduction in risk of stroke rates and heart attacks. Additionally, concerns are being elucidated associated with niacin supplementation’s hazardous side effects such as liver problems, excess bleeding, excess infections, and gout.

APEJ to Reflect Fastest Expansion in Global Niacin and Niacinamide Market through 2026

Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is projected to reflect the fastest expansion in the global niacin and niacinamide market through 2026. The growth of APEJ can be highly attributed to surging prevalence of metabolic dysfunctions. Niacinamide has been witnessed to make improvements in a human body’s energy production, owing to its role as the progenitor of NAD – an imperative molecule for energy metabolism. The region’s healthcare practitioners are therefore recommending patients to consumer niacinamide with prescription from physicians for improving their energy metabolism.

North America is projected to register a steady expansion in the global niacin and niacinamide market through 2026. Demand for niacin & niacinamide in North America will primarily remain sustained by increasing rate of obesity. Over one-third of the North American population is currently suffering from obesity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Obesity-related conditions comprise heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Niacin holds potential of improving adiposity, glucose tolerance, lipid profile, and insulin sensitivity, while modulating adiponectin level which further helps in treating obesity effectively.
