A new study by a team of scientists from new York and Lausanne have shown that small doses of a recently discovered in milk vitamin, similar to B3, doing rodents stronger, faster, healthier, reduces the tendency toward obesity, diabetes, chronic diseases even when an unbalanced diet. However, it is not clear, does this vitamin is a similar effect on people.
High doses of nicotinamide riboside not only helped the mice to avoid obesity even on oily food ( average received vitamin mice were 60 percent less likely received vitamin mice on the same diet), but also increased their muscle performance, endurance, energy costs and prevented the development of diabetes ( for the control group of mice not treated with the vitamin, the disease has developed).
"Animal vitamin nicotinamide riboside great benefit. It improves the functioning of the mitochondria. Because the main symptom of many diseases - reducing activity of the mitochondria, which is true for the aging," says pharmacologist Anthony Sauve.
Testing vitamin on mice has shown its high efficiency, but how can it affect a person? On this question, scientists still do not know how the artificial creation of a large amount of the vitamin preparation.
However, it is worth to note that the level of this vitamin in milk is extremely small, therefore, a significant effect can be synthesized nicotinamide riboside.
