GLOSSARY
VITAMIN B3 (NIACIN)

Vitamin B3 (niacin)

 

How does it work?

Vitamin B3 is an essential water soluble vitamin (also referred to both nicotinic acid and nicotinamide) which is required for its role in energy production, fatty acid synthesis, detoxification and regulation of blood sugar.1 It also acts as a precursor to many enzyme systems required for DNA and fatty acid synthesis, glycoysis and cellular respiration.Vitamin B3 has shown lipid-lowering, anti-atherogenic, antioxidant and neuroprotective activity therefore has helped improve conditions such as hypercholesterolaemia, hypertriglyceridaemia and metabolic syndrome.3

What results can be expected?

Vitamin B3 is used to treat and prevent deficiency states as well as assist in improving lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease due to high cholesterol and triglycerides. Vitamin B3 may have a blood glucose regulatory effect however it is known to impair glucose regulation in type II diabetes therefore should be monitored with supplementation.4
