“Interesting and significant . . . Hoffer, Foster, and Saul clearly
present the practical details of niacin treatment . . . I can
wholeheartedly recommend this new edition.” —Robert G. Smith, PhD,
GreenMedInfo.com“Niacin: The Real Story has a wealth of information
about Dr. Hoffer’s favorite vitamin, which he recommended optimal
doses of too many of his patients and tens of thousands of readers.
Abram Hoffer even advised his mother to take niacin and it helped
her. Anyone who reads Abram Hoffer’s last book will find it
interesting and helpful. Books such as Niacin: The Real Story will
continue to give readers the chance to learn the facts so they can
use that information to support safe, effective and restorative
care for a wide range of patients. Each copy sold could save a
life!” —Robert Sealey
“I read this book and found it to be a real treasure. It made me love dietary supplements, especially vitamin B3, in view of the very positive effects that it offers to our body. Everyone should have this book as a health support.” —Tahar Naili, MD“Dr. Hoffer’s early work led to the use of niacin for schizophrenia and as a cholesterol treatment and successfully treated many thousands of patients with high doses of niacin. The authors present some very compelling evidence to support treating most psychotic disorders as a vitamin B3 dependency. Considering it is very inexpensive and has virtually no dangerous side effects, niacin would certainly be worth a consideration for anyone who has a family member with this mental health challenge. I highly recommend picking up this book and learning more about its use.” —Dr. Joseph Mercola“Niacin: The Real Story is a classic. This book should be read and even studied by everyone. It will help keep readers healthy and save many lives. More people will benefit from the teachings of Drs. Hoffer, Saul and Foster.” —Richard Passwater, PhD“This new edition of Niacin: The Real Story clarifies and describes the latest scientific evidence on supplementing with this important vitamin. Niacin (vitamin B3) is inexpensive and comes in several forms that the body incorporates through slightly different pathways. As shown many decades ago by Dr. Abram Hoffer, when taken in safe and appropriate doses, it can enhance brain function—reducing the risk of mental illness. Saul’s clear writing style explains how niacin can also reverse kidney disease and the risk of several types of cancer, and contribute to health body-wide.” —Robert G. Smith, PhD, Research Associate Professor at Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania“Dr. Hoffer worked with well over 2,000 children under the age of four using nutrient therapy including an adequate amount of niacin/niacinamide and saw great responses to it. What a boon it would be for children with ADHD, along with their parents, to have that critical choice as opposed to drug treatment only. Dr. Hoffer’s research on niacin proved to be life saving for many thousands of patients with schizophrenia, bipolar, and other mental health conditions, as well as many other conditions, such as high cholesterol, arthritis, and more. His work continues to be a gift to the world.” —Rosalie Moscoe, author of Frazzled Hurried Woman“Niacin is the real thing! It is anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective. Research also shows positive results for coronavirus as well as some other viral and bacterial diseases.” —Bo H. Jonsson, MD, PhD, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm“Dr. Hoffer’s writings changed my son’s life. His schizophrenia was cured with niacin treatments. My son, fully recovered, went on to become CEO of a web marketing company ten years later.” —Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, President of the International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine“I wanted to discover how to use niacin to feel better and be happier, and Niacin: The Real Story more than delivered. It is almost like having my own health consultant helping me and hundreds of my clients and friends—not only—have a deep understanding of this amazing molecule but also put all of that knowledge into action to become healthier and wiser. The book is enjoyable to read since the first page then all of a sudden I’m in the last page. because it is very simple and easy to apply. If you want to be healthier and happier, this book is for you.” —Moustafa Kamel, RPh, PGCM, Editor of the Arabic edition of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service
