Does Nicotinamide help against skin cancer?
Nicotinamide is a water-soluble form of vitamin B3 or niacin. In high-risk individuals, nicotinamide supplementation had protective effects against certain types of skin lesions and nonmelanoma skin cancers. It is made in the body by eating niacin-rich foods such as fish. Additional studies are needed to confirm safety and effectiveness across different types of skin cancer. Nicotinamide prevents the occurrence of nonaggressive skin cancers and can decrease conditions that occur before melanoma like in actinic keratoses, a predictor of melanoma risk. Nicotinamide has chemopreventive effects against UV. chemoprevention which means the use of drugs, vitamins, or other agents to try to reduce the risk of, or delay the development or recurrence of, cancer.
