Pure Vitamin B3 Powder
Niacinamide, or as it is more commonly referred to, Vitamin B3, belongs to the group of B vitamins and is water soluble.
Though closely related to niacin, it does have differing effects. There is also an extra amide group attached to niacinamide, further differentiating it from regular niacin. Each of them plays an important role in the metabolism of energy in that they may be converted into coenzymes that the enzymes in each cell can make use of when completing the actions that create energy for the body. These coenzymes have been named NAD and NADH respectively. Taken in amounts of about 100mg or less, both niacin and niacinamide ostensibly perform the same actions. When taken at levels greater than 100mg though, this is where their overall effects begin to differ. Niacin is able to help the body balance the levels of good and bad cholesterol present in the blood, while niacinamide is essential in monitoring insulin levels, blood sugar content, and health of joints. Niacinamide may also be used along with other supplements and minerals to increase the overall effectiveness and health of the nervous system, the digestive system and the circulatory system.
