What is Niacin - Vitamin B3?
Niacin (vitamin B-3) also known as nicotinic acid, is a member of the B family of vitamins and is found in the company of other B vitamins—vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B12 (cyanocabalamin) and folic acid.
Niacin is water soluble, meaning it’s not stored in the body and must be replaced daily. It can be found in many foods, including meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, cereal grains and yeast. The amino acid tryptophan, present in protein-rich foods like red meat, poultry, turkey, dairy products and eggs, can also be converted to niacin.
Niacin is important for many biological functions. It plays a role in carbohydrate, fat and protein utilization. In its coenzyme forms, niacin is crucial to energy transfer reactions related to fat, alcohol and glucose.*
Niacin acts as a vasodilator, and the flushing and tingling sensation it creates is often mistaken for an allergic reaction. Flushing can occur when using large or even small doses of niacin. Symptoms of a mild deficiency of niacin include fatigue and indigestion. Pellegra has been long understood to be a form of a niacin deficiency.
