Vitamin B3, a water soluble nutrient, appears in several different forms, all of which can be referred to as niacin. One of the forms is nicotinamide, (synonymous with niacinamide) which is the form of niacin that is generally recommended for supplements. The chemical structure of niacin is similar to the amino acid tryptophan and in fact the body can make niacin from tryptophan but in times of stress this function can become compromised. Niacin is most abundant in high protein foods such as meat, fish and nuts though the amounts are quite low.
Possible Niacin Benefits:
Detox: Combination of niacin, exercise and sauna is a powerful way to detox your body from heavy metals and toxins stored in fat cells.
Energy: Niacin is essential in the production of energy in the body. Deficiency causes tiredness and fatigue. 50 – 500 mg daily will give a natural energy boost.
Arthritis: Studies confirm niacin is better than NSAIDS for arthritis. Moderate arthritis 1,000 to 1,500 mg a day. In more severe cases, as much as 3,000 mg to 4,000 mg have been recommended.
Cholesterol, Triglycerides + Reversing Heart Disease: 1,000 to 3,000 mg of niacin a day. Niacin lowers cholesterol more effectively than statins in various studies and also lowers triglycerides. It reduces the blood fats called “very low density lipoproteins,” which have been linked to heart disease and cancer. It improves the blood sugar problems that can lead to damage of the arterial walls. It dilates blood vessels, which improves the circulation to areas starved of oxygen and nutrients.
Memory loss: 1,000 mg of niacin taken 3 times a day can improve memory, and correct some senility problems.
Prevents Hair Loss + Balding: Increases blood flow to scalp, important in hair growth and reduces production of DHT linked to balding.
Insomnia: Niacinamide activates benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, which affects sleep. Dosages of 50 mg to 500mg of niacin that is converted into niacinamide in the body taken at bedtime have helped many people sleep better.
Severe Depression & Schizophrenia: The usual dose range is 3,000 to 9,000 milligrams daily divided into three doses, but occasionally some patients may need more.
Cancer: Has the potential to influence DNA repair, genomic stability, and the immune system, eventually having an impact on cancer risk, as well as the side effects of chemotherapy in the cancer patient. Low levels of NAD+ synthesis can cause DNA damage. Niacin supplementation increases NAD+ levels, which can help protect against DNA damage, oxidative damage, and tumor progression
Acne: Many reports show Niacin can get rid of acne at daily doses of 400/500 mg.
Alzheimers: Studies have shown that vitamin B3 niacin can help protect against Alzheimer’s disease and other age related brain disorders that result in cognitive decline.
Niacin functions in over fifty metabolic reactions. It plays a key role in glycolysis, the Krebs Cycle and the hexose monophosphate shunt, all of which are important in the release of energy from macro-nutrients. It is also needed in the deamination of amino acids, essential fatty acid metabolism and in the metabolism of fatty acids. By playing a role in the formation of red blood cells, steroids, and in energy production within the cells, niacin is vital in maintaining the integrity of all body cells.
Niacin Deficiency in Cancer
Niacin is an important B3 vitamin naturally produced and synthesized in the liver by tryptophan to produce NAD coenzymes. NAD coenzymes keep the Krebs’ Citric Acid Cycle in the mitochondria of cells functioning normally. It is also implicated in Cancer as a Niacin Deficiency, if there is insufficient NAD coenzymes due to a depletion of tryptophan and niacin [caused by prolonged psycho-emotional stress] then the Krebs’s Citric Acid Cycle of the cell is broken and the cell reverts to glucose obtain smaller amounts of ATP energy for the cell and for the body.
When the cell ferments glucose to obtain ATP energy it produces lactic acid, and the somatid (tiny microorganisms necessary for life that live in our blood) pleomorphise (or change) into pathogenic viral-bacterial-yeast-like-fungus to ferment rising glucose and lactic acid, subsequently migrating to the cell nucleus and causing cell mutation and cancer.
Fermentation as an alternate means to obtain smaller amounts of ATP energy for the cell and for the body.

In 1949, the American biochemists Morris Friedkin and Albert L. Lehninger proved that NADH linked metabolic pathways such as the citric acid cycle with the synthesis of ATP in oxidative phosphorylation. [source]
Start slowly with one capsule with food and gradually build up to desired level. Some flushing could occur at high levels but if any nausea is experienced, back off and build slowly again over a longer time frame.

Came promptly and was as advertised, price was good. Great vitamin for skin as recommended by skin specialist.
Very satisfying product!
I have already tried some vitamin B3 products and finally ended up with this.
– The product is “flush-free”,it does not lead to heat or red face, as can happen with B3 preparations.
– The product does not contain magnesium stearate and
– is GMO-free
The capsules are not exactly small, but in case this is a problem they are easy to open.
All in all a combination, which is not so easy to find and certainly not with this price-performance ratio.
Works for me!
As soon as i hit 13 (I’m 21 now) that was it.. its like my skin just gave up! I had very bad acne and my skin was bumpy and uneven looking too, So since then its been a constance battle every day, prescribed acne cream made it 10x worse as i have sensitive skin too, I read online about this Vitamin and decided it couldn’t hurt.. and I’m so so glad that i did, Its been a month since and my skin has transformed.. smooth, looking even and helps prevent any breakouts, I don’t care about not having make up on and now wear less. wow.. I wish i know about this sooner but i’ll be ordering another when i run out! 🙂
We never stop and think of our well being on a molecular level, when we do we see the good these vitamins are doing for our bodies, mind and molecular levels, this product is great for those who are easily agitated or irate, with no side effects and promising results. When taking medication I prefer to use the Farmaceuticals over pHARMaceuticals
Did anyone else have this side effect?
Within 24 hrs i noticed a big difference in my oily skin which had been a humiliating problem for 20yrs. AND also… roughly half an hour after taking one dose i was cracking up with laughter (and i was at home on my own) i think it lifted my mood or at least made me feel very ‘merry’ – but not totally drunk. Weird reaction.

B3 minor miracle
This has changed my life. Enormous benefits for me, i actually can’t absorb the mineral when i eat because of a medical problem that was pancreatitis and gall bladder removed which means i can’t break down enough meat fats to produce B3. I do wonder about the education doctors receive, they should really recommend this. My skin, hair and nails have benefitted vastly and i am less tired. Thought this was a great price for quality, will always buy from here.
