The Missing Piece

This 9 minute clip reveals the hidden history of Abram Hoffer's relationship with Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Though AA has saved millions of lives, its founder knew that recovered alcoholics still suffered from severe depression, possibly from nutritional deficiencies in the brain. Abram Hoffer, founder of ortho-molecular medicine, turned Bill Wilson onto the benefits of high dose Niacin for depression, which alleviated his own lifelong depression, and caused him to become extremely passionate about Niacin.

So then what happened?

Why didn't AA incorporate high dose Niacin into its recommendations for alcoholics?

Watch the clip to learn the shocking truth.
