Kurt N Woeller, DO


Nicotinamide, along with niacin (vitamin B3), linked nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) production, are key components of the quinolinic acid-kynurenic pathway. Various supplemental forms of these nutrients exist that can be taken to support important cellular chemistry for energy production, etc. A form of nicotinamide called nicotinamide riboside (NR) is recognized as an important form of nicotinamide with usefulness for various conditions, including cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and metabolic disorders. This lecture by Kurt N. Woeller, D.O. of Integrative Medicine Academy will explain the biochemistry of the quinolinic-kynurenic pathway in support of NAD, and the usefulness of niacinamide in the form of NR.
