Niacin also known as vitamin B3 is one of the essential B-complex vitamins. Niacin is active in the body in its coenzyme forms NAD and NADP. These two molecules play major roles in a variety of essential biochemical processes involving energy production and the synthesis of important biomolecules i.e. cholesterol. Our niacin is in the form nicotinic acid. Nicotinic acid can cause a characteristic “flushing” reaction when used in high amounts (100 mg or >). Taking several hundred milligrams per day should be done under the supervision of a physician. High dose niacin is often used to help support cholesterol levels already within the normal range.*
Provides 100 mg of niacin (as nicotinic acid) per tablet.
Niacin as NAD is involved in the metabolism of glucose, amino acids and fatty acids into energy (ATP) in the body.
NADP is an important cofactor in the biosynthesis of fatty acids, cholesterol, steroid hormones, etc.
Niacin has been shown to help support cholesterol levels already within the normal range;this includes total cholesterol, LDL and HDL levels.*
