Niacinamide is the flush-free form of Niacin, also known as vitamin B3. In the body Niacinamide is transferred into the enzymes NADH and NADP coenzymes, which play an important role in the energy production from carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Niacinamide has a great influence on the production of neurotransmitters, including serotonin, which improves the overall mood. It also provides mental energy, supports memory and delays mental fatigue.
Together with other B-vitamins Niacinamide supports beautiful skin and hair and promotes wound healing.
A healthy diet usually contains enough niacin, which is supplied particularly by brewer's yeast, peanuts, sunflower seeds, liver, spirulina, salmon, tuna, chicken, offal, legumes, avocados, whole grains and lamb.
However, an inadequate supply from the diet can lead to symptoms of deficiency. In particular, groups of people who eat mainly maize, often exhibit symptoms of niacin deficiency because the form of niacin contained in maize cannot be absorbed by the body. Cases such as these are called pellagra.
Niacin can also be created from tryptophan, an amino acid which occurs in the body. A niacin deficiency can also be caused by eating too little protein.
Vitamin B6 deficiency can also lead to niacin deficiency because vitamin B6 is required to convert tryptophan into niacin.
High alcohol consumption may also create a niacin deficiency.

Subsequently, niacin deficiency promotes the development of arthritis, cardiovascular disease, schizophrenia and diabetes mellitus type 1 (an autoimmune disease in which the beta cells which produce insulin in the pancreas are destroyed).
Gout sufferers should refrain from taking niacin because it may cause a gout flare by hindering the excretion of uric acid.
Diabetics or those taking tetracycline (an antibiotic), aspirin, blood pressure medication, anticoagulants or cholesterol-lowering drugs should consult a doctor before taking niacin.
An intake of 2000mg or more niacin may result in low blood pressure or attacks of dizziness.
