Is niacin a fountain of youth?

Recommended Posts

I'd be careful with taking niacin supplements, especially since it's easy to get above RDA from food sources.  I just looked and over the last year, I average 155% of RDA, from non-fortified nutritional yeast, tomatoes, winter squash (I love and consume kabocha regularly), brewer's yeast, and almonds, as the top five sources.

For example (I don't have time for a better search):
