Nicotinic acid

In other words, we analyzed the saliva, which would have otherwise been swallowed. No nicotinic Acid occurred in the smoker's saliva before smoking. We feel that we have made this report sufficiently long to cover the discoveries, which we regard as quite remarkable.

Nicotinic acid was first discovered from the oxidation of nicotine. When the properties of nicotinic acid were discovered, it was thought prudent to choose a name to dissociate it from nicotine and to avoid the idea that either smoking provided vitamins or that wholesome food contained a poison. The resulting name 'niacin' was derived from nicotinic acid + in

niacin

"pellagra-preventing vitamin in enriched bread," 1942, coined from ni(cotinic) ac(id) + -in, chemical suffix; suggested by the merican Medical Association as a more commercially viable name than nicotinic acid.
"The new name was found to be necessary because some anti-tobacco groups warned against enriched bread because it would foster the cigarette habit." ["Cooperative Consumer," Feb. 28, 1942]

"Niacin was first discovered from the oxidation of nicotine to form nicotinic acid. When the properties of nicotinic acid were discovered, it was thought prudent to choose a name to dissociate it from nicotine, in order to avoid the perception that vitamins or niacin-rich food contains nicotine. The resulting name 'niacin' was derived from nicotinic acid + vitamin."

"Niacin is also referred to as Vitamin B3 because it was the third of the B vitamins to be discovered. It has historically been referred to as "vitamin PP", a name derived from the term "pellagra-preventing factor".
http://www.chemie.de/lexikon/e/Niacin

Effectiveness of Food Fortification in the United States : The Case of Pellagra
http://www.ajph.org/cgi/reprint/90/5/727.pdf


"The term "niacin" used interchangeably with vitamin B3 is actually a non-technical term that refers to several different chemical forms of the vitamin. These forms include nicotinic acid and nicotinamide. (Nicotinamide is also sometimes called niacinamide.) The names "niacin," "nicotinic acid," and "nicotinamide" are all derived from research studies on tobacco in the early 1930's. At that time, the first laboratory isolation of vitamin B3 occurred following work on the chemical nicotine that had been obtained from tobacco leaves."

Nicotinic Acid
"Nicotinic Acid is a specific form of Vitamin B3. Nicotinic Acid supplements are manufactured by oxidizing Nicotine this is not a cause for alarm as Nicotinic Acid is not associated with any of the toxic effects attributable to Nicotine"

Researchers Light Up for Nicotine, the Wonder Drug

"Smoking may be bad for you, but researchers and biotech companies are quietly developing pharmaceuticals that are decidedly good for brains, bowels, blood vessels and even immune systems -- and they're inspired by tobacco's deadly active ingredient: nicotine."

Distinguishing Nicotine Dependence From Smoking
Why It Matters to Tobacco Control and Psychiatry

"Nicotine dependence is in some respects an anomaly among psychiatric disorders. It is a condition cited and discussed often by the media, Congress, and the lay public. In fact, the lay public tends to overuse the diagnosis, assuming that all daily smokers are nicotine dependent"

Harmful effects raise concerns over long-term use of nicotine therapy, but not short-course replacement

"HARMFUL effects of nicotine, in the absence of tobacco, have been demonstrated in a study published in Nature Medicine this week (2001;7:833). However, the relevance of the work to smokers using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help them stop has been questioned."

Dr. Murray Jarvik, 1923-2008: He helped invent nicotine patch

"The ironic twist is that he never smoked a day in his life. He was one of the most rabid anti-smokers you can imagine," Jarvik said.

Co-inventor of nicotine patch dies

"We put the tobacco on our skin and waited to see what would happen," Jarvik recalled in an issue of UCLA magazine. "Our heart rates increased, adrenaline began pumping, all the things that happen to smokers."

Jarvik never smoked

Postby gary k » Sat Jul 26, 2008 9:56 am

"He also battled lung cancer about 15 years ago, probably due to "bad genetics" or inhaling the air in Los Angeles. "

I find this about Jarvik rather ironic! :roll:

People using NRT who experience

irregular heart beat or palpitations
symptoms of nicotine overdose
severe nausea
vomiting
dizziness
weakness
rapid heartbeat

should stop using nicotine replacement therapy and see their doctors immediately

Letters to the editor

Tobacco: conspiracy or treason?

"People, mainly children, had been dying for more than 20 years from an ailment that started with lethargy, loss of appetite and dementia, then progressed on to aggressiveness, irritability and disphorea, ending with fever, skin eruptions and large red rashes covering most of the body. One doctor observed that patients literally scratched themselves to death. Another doctor, Dr. Goldberger, observed that people who used tobacco seemed to be immune from this disease. That, and the fact that it did not appear to be contagious, led him to assume that something in the tobacco was protecting people from the disease."

"For more than a year, I have been trying to expose a deep dark secret that threatens to destroy more children on the pretense of protecting them from harm. There are hundreds of anti-smoking and anti-tobacco campaigns claiming to be trying to stop children from using tobacco, and none of them have addressed the root issue of why people smoke or use tobacco. People use tobacco for the same reason they would eat a candy bar. There is something in it the body wants
That something is not just an "addictive drug" as the rhetoric of the last 50 years has claimed, but actually a necessary nutrient, niacin, vitamin B-3."

teenage smoking and tobacco company coverups

"The intention of this study is to discover if teenage tobacco use, smoking and other, may be the result of a niacin deficient diet, not tobacco advertising. "
"My argument is that the real cause has been overlooked in the "rush to judgment" and nutritional deficiencies have been misdiagnosed as mere addictions, subject to whim and will.
The body needs niacin and it knows nicotine will work if niacin isn't available. This is not a conscious function"

Impaired Flush Response to Niacin Skin Patch Among Schizophrenia Patients and Their Nonpsychotic Relatives: The Effect of Genetic Loading

"We previously reported familial aggregation in flush response to niacin skin patch among schizophrenia patients and their nonpsychotic relatives. However, little is known about whether this abnormal skin response is associated with genetic loading for schizophrenia"
http://tinyurl.com/5pzug8


Niacin Flush
"Yet another feature of niacin is that it dilates blood vessels and creates a sensation of warmth, called a "niacin flush." This is often accompanied with a blushing of the skin. It is this "flush" or sensation of heat that indicates a temporary saturation of niacin, and that is our topic here."
http://www.doctoryourself.com/niacin.html

Food For The Brain - Schizophrenia
"The use of ‘megadoses’ of niacin was first tried by Drs Humphrey Osmond and Abram Hoffer in 1951. So impressed were they with the results in acute schizophrenics that, in 1953, they ran the first double-blind therapeutic trials in the history of psychiatry. Their first two trials showed significant improvement giving at least 3gs (3,000mg) a day, compared to placebos. They also found that chronic schizophrenics, not first-time sufferers but long-term inpatients, showed little improvement. The results of six double blind controlled trials showed that the natural recovery rate was doubled. Later they found that even chronic patients, treated for several years with niacin in combination with other nutrients, often recovered"
