Vitamin B3 Niacin 500mg Vitamin B3 Niacin 500mg

Life Extension Vitamin B3 Niacin is a dietary supplement which contains a high dose of vitamin B3, which is essential for the proper functioning of the body system. Next to the influence on the physical side of our body system, the vitamin B3 also positively affects its psychical aspect. It can be concluded that physical and mental well-being depend to a large extent on the proper level of vitamin B3 in the body system.

Vitamin B3 (niacin) – this name refers to two compounds: nicotinic acid (also known as niacin) and a nicotine acid amide (nicotinamide). Sometimes because of its antipellagric properties (its deficiency is the cause of a disease called pellagra), vitamin B3 is also known as vitamin PP (pellagra-preventive vitamin).

As the only vitamin from the B group, niacin is produced by the body system (from the amino acid called tryptophan, with the participation of vitamin B6), but the amount is not big enough to cover the demand for it. Moreover, tryptophan is an essential amino acid, which means that it has to be provided with food. The consequence of tryptophan deficiency is the secondary deficiency of niacin.

Niacin is resistant to high temperatures, water soluble and its excess is excreted in the urine.

Metabolism support

Vitamin B3 is one of the most important biosubstances, which are necessary for the production of energy in living cells. It participates in all metabolism transformations which aim at energy release. It is essential for the proper synthesis and decomposition of carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids. Its deficiency will result in weakness and lack of energy, but it also can interfere with the functions of the digestive system, especially of the intestines and the stomach.

Cholesterol level regulation

Vitamin B3 has an ability to regulate the level of cholesterol in the body system. By blocking the breakdown of fats in the adipose tissue, it reduces the level of free fatty acids and, as a consequence, it reduces the level of so called "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and stimulates the production of "good" HDL cholesterol. Thus, niacin significantly reduces the risk of heart diseases, strokes, myocardial infarction and it can be effectively used in the prevention of atherosclerosis.

The improvement of mental health

Niacin has a very beneficial influence on the nervous system and the mental condition. It has relaxing and soothing properties, facilitates sleeping and provides the peace of mind. It is often used in the treatment of mental disorders, especially schizophrenia. There are also promising studies which demonstrate the effectiveness of niacin in the treatment of depression.

Effectiveness in the fight against fungal infections

Niacin has strong antifungal properties, which means it prevents the development of many fungi and yeasts, mainly by blocking the enzyme – deacethylase Hst3p, which is necessary for yeast development. It has been proven that niacin is also effective in fighting a wide range of strains of Candida group and Aspergillus – a fungus which belongs to the division of Ascomycota, which is responsible, i.a., for the fungal infections of lungs and ear and for asthma. Specialists believe that the treatment carried out with the participation of vitamin B3 can help to prevent the development of Candida and other yeast infections without the risk of harmful side effects.

Vitamin B3 for healthy skin and hair

Vitamin B3 is often believed to be a perfect supplement for women. Thanks to the fact that niacin regulates the levels of female hormones (estrogen and progesterone), it helps to regulate the menstrual cycle, relieves menstrual pain and, by expanding the blood vessels, it helps to fight migraine.

Niacin also affects the healthy condition of hair, skin and nails. It eliminates roughness and redness of skin, improves its colour, inhibits hair loss and also helps to fight dandruff. The deterioration of skin condition and the sustainability to skin diseases often are the first symptoms of a deficiency of vitamin B3 in the body system.

Support for the detoxification

The accumulation of toxins in the body system is very dangerous and it can lead to the development of numerous serious diseases. The efficient system of removing toxins from the body system determines its health. Niacin plays an active role in the detoxification process. It appears mostly in the metabolic pathway of ethylene alcohol. Without its participation it would not be possible to decompose its molecules, which would considerably burden the liver and could lead to the impairment of its functions. Niacin also helps in the elimination of heavy metals from the body system and reduces the toxic influence of particular drugs.

Causes and symptoms of vitamin B3 deficiency

The chronic deficiency of vitamin B3 is very dangerous and can result in pellagra which is quite resistant to treatment. The most common factors leading to deficiency of niacin in the body system are: poorly balanced diet, alcoholism, chronic malabsorption syndrome and taking particular antiepileptic or anti-tuberculosis drugs. We also have to remember that increasing the amount of energy processes (for example as a result of large sugar consumption) will lead to the greater demand for vitamin B3.

Vitamin B3 deficiency are usually diagnosed on the basis of symptoms. One of the first symptoms is smaller tolerance to cold. Next come tiredness and weakness, anxiety, depressed mood and problems with memory. You may also observe insomnia and frequent migraines headaches. The skin in people affected by niacin deficiency is rough and red, patients also often complain about skin diseases and hair loss.

Niacin is one of the most important vitamins and its deficiencies can be potentially dangerous to your health, so you have to ensure that the niacin level in the body system is appropriate. The deficiencies are quite easy to compensate thanks to proven and safe supplements. The supplementation with Life Extension Vitamin B Niacin is the best choice, as it provides fast and safe way to take care of the optimal level of vitamin B3 in the body system.
