NIACIN also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid, is one of the water-soluble vitamins from the B vitamin group. It is essential for the proper functioning of the body. It participates in numerous metabolic processes, such as energy production, hormone synthesis or DNA damage repair. Niacin plays a key role in the process of energy production in the body, participating in the conversion of glucose, fats and amino acids into energy. Vitamin B3 is essential for the synthesis of hormones such as cortisol, melatonin or insulin. It can help regulate blood cholesterol levels by lowering LDL (“bad cholesterol”) and triglycerides while increasing HDL (“good cholesterol”) cholesterol. Niacin supports the proper functioning of the nervous system, affecting the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin.
