Dr. Abram Hoffer and Alcoholics Anonymous

February 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D., is an internationally recognized physician, author, medical researcher and pioneer in orthomolecular medicine.

In 1960 he met Bill Wilson, co-founder of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and talked about using Niacin (Vitamin B-3) to help alcoholics. Bill W. was very interested in using it and he tested it with positive results.

Bill W. was a supporter of using Niacin but unbelievably his ideas were originally rejected by the AA International Headquarters because he was not a medical doctor!  View the video (9 1/2 minutes) to hear the story.

An interesting side note is that Vitamin B-3 is also good for balancing your cholesterol levels.
