140: How to Take Niacin Without Getting Diabetes

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 140


Here’s how to take NIACIN 😁… without getting DIABETES. 😔

Alex Leaf and I did a HUGE podcast on niacin, and Alex looked at the data on whether it is safe and effective to use for preventing heart disease. 

Based on that data, one out of every 18 people who use it for this purpose get saved from heart disease, but for every 7 people saved from heart disease, 3 get diabetes. 

In this episode I cover Alex’s idea on how to take niacin without getting diabetes.

Here’s a massive 2-part podcast series I did on niacin with Alex Leaf, which has 52 scientific references:

Niacin Part 1: What It Is and Why You Need It

Niacin Part 2: Blood Tests, Foods, and Supplements

Here is Alex’s blog post on this specific topic:
