Researchers have studied the effects of nicotinamide, a form of vitamin B3, on animal and cell models for glaucoma. Their study may be a future neuroprotective therapy in glaucoma in humans. A clinical trial will start later this year.
A high daily dose of an omega-3 supplement may help slow the effects of aging by suppressing damage and boosting protection at the cellular level during and after a stressful event, new research suggests.
