Vitamin protects against diabetic complications.
Nicotinamide riboside(NR) lowers blood sugar, reduces fatty liver and prevents neuropathy in models of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Nicotinamide is a naturally occurring vitamin. It was studied in mouse models and was able to lower sugar levels, reduce fatty liver and prevent peripheral nerve damage.
The promising results from the mouse studies have provided enough evidence to conduct human trials as well, testing the effects of nicotinamide riboside on disorders including prediabetes and T2D, and also, obesity, fatty liver disease and neuropathies.
Nicotinamide riboside is a precursor of NAD+. NAD+ is a cellular metabolite required for cells to convert fuel into energy but levels decline with age. NR has major potential in improving metabolic health and promoting healthy living and aging.
The mice in the study were divided into six groups. The control mice that were fed normal chow with or without the NR, prediabetic mice fed a high-fat diet with or without the NR and T2D mice on a highfat diet under the same conditions. The NR greatly protected the mice from hepatic steatosis, reduced liver damage and improved blood sugar levels. It also protected against peripheral nerve damage or neuropathy.

One of the best treatments is ozone chelation. Both therapies have been shown to reverse Type II diabetes. Chelation removes heavy metals that cause cardiovascular disease and free radical activity. Ozone kills pathogens that damage organ systems including the pancreas. The National Institutes of Health TACT Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy showed that 37% of patients with diabetes out of a total of 1700 patients had a 41% reduction in cardiac events, 52% drop in recurrent myocardial infarctions and 43% reduction of deaths. Chelation should become mainstream treatment for Type II diabetes.
Type II diabetes can be reversed with lifestyle changes, the right nutraceuticals, exercise and diet.
