Now Foods Niacin is a dietary supplement containing 500 mg of niacin per capsule.
Niacin (vitamin B3, vitamin PP) – a water-soluble vitamin of the B complex. The name “vitamin PP” stems from its property called the pellagra-preventing factor. It participates in the metabolism of amino acids and fatty acids, it is remarkably beneficial for cholesterol and triglyceride levels, regulates nervous system functions and the mental condition; it can also improve the condition of the skin and hair.
Fantastic effect on the lipid profile
The most common application of the vitamin is regulating all sorts of disorders in the lipid profile, such as elevated total cholesterol levels, distorted balance of HDL and LDL fractions, or too much triglycerides in the circulatory system.
Interestingly, niacin is so efficient in this respect that it is often recommended even by doctors.
The vitamin inhibits above all the vLDL and LDL-C fractions of cholesterol which have the most negative effect on the condition of blood vessels, as they are remarkably reactive and contribute to the occurrence of inflammations. At the same time, it has the ability to increase the beneficial HDL fraction, regulating the lipid profile in a complex way, so that it is good for your health.
Additional benefits for the circulatory system
Scientific studies show that niacin helps to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The risk of a cardiac arrest and a stroke is also reduced.
Vitamin PP contributes to the widening of blood vessels and, in turn, an improvement in blood flow. Smooth blood circulation translates into well-nourished tissues and swift oxygen delivery. The influence on blood vessels can be observed particularly at the beginning of usage through the harmless symptom called the niacin flush. It consists in a temporary effect of red, itching skin that passes after a few moments and does not have any negative consequences. Using niacin after a meal helps to reduce the symptom.
Skin and hair regeneration
This aspect is probably interesting for most ladies. It turns out that vitamin B3 significantly helps to maintain a good condition of the skin, keeping it beautiful and smooth for a long time.
Niacin is also used in acne prevention and in order to maintain the high quality and flexibility of the skin.
Another matter worth mentioning is pellagra, a disease believed to be connected with niacin since the time of its discovery. Pellagra is a vitamin deficiency disease whose main symptom is painful dermatitis, but also diarrhoea, aggression and, eventually, dementia.
Application in mental diseases
Niacin is sometimes used in schizophrenia treatment, and according to its users, there are some positive effects of the solution. Vitamin B3 is also said to have a beneficial effect on depressive disorders.
Niacin is worth taking into account in supplementation when you suffer from mood disorders, as it helps to maintain the health of the nervous system and normal psychological functions. It can also be helpful in the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Regulation of energy metabolism
Niacin is an important player in many energy transformations, particularly in lipid and amino acid metabolism. Thanks to that, it can help to regulate the production of steroid hormones, such as glucocorticoids and sex hormones – testosterone, oestradiol, progesterone.
Now Foods Niacin is particularly recommended for people who suffer from a distorted lipid profile, an increased risk of cardiovascular system diseases, nervous system diseases, and mood disorders, as well as those who wish to improve the condition of their skin and hair.
It is believed that, for the best results of niacin use, it should be applied in the minimum dose of 1 g a day. However, the dose bigger than 250 mg a day is not recommended for beginners. You should start using the product from a dose of 250 mg a day and then gradually increase the dose, for example by 250 mg every 4 weeks.
Niacin, especially applied on an empty stomach, causes so called flash, whose symptoms are feeeling of warmth, slight burning and skin redness. These effects can be minimised by using smaller doses and combining the supplementation with vitamin C or taking the preparation with a meal.
