Preventing Alcohol-Induced Liver Disease With Nicotinamide Riboside

Alcohol-induced liver disease is a progressive disease, starting from liver steatosis, which then progresses to liver fibrosis or even cirrhosis and liver cancer. It is important to prevent liver damage caused by alcohol consumption at its starting point. Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is a form of vitamin B3, which is a precursor of NAD our body needs. In recent years, many protective effects of NR have been reported, including anti-aging, prevention of hearing loss, helping in weight loss, and anti-cancer effects,...
