This book provides the first unified theory of nutrient deficiency and dependency since the idea was first broached by Linus Pauling in the 1960s. Some patients may be vitamin deficient, where the diet does not offer enough vitamins to satisfy their needs, leading to classic deficiency disease, such as scurvy (vitamin C deficiency) and beriberi (vitamin B-1). A vitamin dependency arises when the diet contains enough of the nutrient for the average person but not enough for certain patients with extremely high requirements. These patients will experience general ill-health, manifesting in a wide variety of disease conditions. Such is the case with vitamin B-3, also known as niacin and niacinamide.

The world is now suffering a global vitamin B-3 deficiency and dependency pandemic, which is perhaps more devastating than the scurvy pandemic that resulted from a lack of vitamin C production in the body or consumed in the diet. The authors review research studies of vitamin B-3 dating back to the 1930s and show that large, controlled doses of vitamin B-3 are effective in preventing, treating, and even reversing such vitamin B-3 deficiency and dependency related diseases as pellagra, schizophrenia, cardiovascular disease, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s disease, and anxiety.
