The most common forms of skin cancer are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. Basal Cell Cancer and Squamous Cell Cancer are niacinamidereferred to as non-melanoma skin cancers. A recent study out of Australia showed that patients with a history of non-melanoma skin cancers who took nicotinamide twice daily for a year had a significant decrease in the number of new non-melanoma skin cancers compared to a placebo group.
Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, is available online.
Niacin, however, is not the same as nicotinamide and niacin can cause flushing.
If you or a loved one has a history of basal cell cancer or squamous cell cancer start taking nicotinamide twice daily.
And wear sunscreen.
