Today we’re going to talk about niacin (vitamin B3) and schizophrenia. With schizophrenia, a person may have hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, feelings of disconnection, a loss of interest in life, and may feel emotionless.

The medical theory of what causes schizophrenia is dopamine excess. A person is then given certain drugs to help regulate this. The potential problem with these drugs is that they could have side effects that cause metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. This has been shown to worsen symptoms of schizophrenia because of what it could do to the brain.

However, Dr. Abram Hoffer had another theory about schizophrenia. It was called the adrenochrome theory. Adrenochrome is basically the byproducts of adrenaline. In his research, he found that the chemical structure of adrenaline is similar to LSD and that in higher amounts, it could have certain effects on the brain. His theory was that schizophrenia comes from excessive amounts of adrenochrome in the brain, which is toxic.

Normally, a person has an enzyme that clears out that chemical. But, people with schizophrenia have a defect with this enzyme. He found that large doses of vitamin B3 every day (straight niacin) may help prevent the conversion of the precursor of adrenaline to adrenaline, making less adrenaline. This could potentially help clear out adrenaline as well as decrease the production of adrenaline.

Other potential benefits of vitamin B3:
• It could help reduce liver toxicity
• It could help reduce oxidative stress in the mitochondria
• It could help the DNA repair
