Vitamin B3 (Niacin) is essential for the body to convert carbohydrates and fat and alcohol into energy. It helps maintain skin health and supports the nervous and digestive systems. Unlike other B-group vitamins, niacin is very heat stable and little is lost in cooking.
Not getting enough niacin in your diet causes the disorder known as pellagra. Symptoms of pellagra include both physical and mental difficulties, diarrhea, inflamed mucus membranes, and dementia. Pellagra can also result when the body is not able to absorb enough niacin because of alcoholism.
Following beneficial effects are claimed by the “European Food Safety Authority (EFSA)”: Niacin contributes to:
- normal energy-yielding metabolism
- normal functioning of the nervous system
- normal psychological function
- the maintenance of normal mucous membranes
- the maintenance of normal skin
- the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
Taking any one of the B vitamins as a single supplement for a long period of time can result in an imbalance of other important B vitamins. For this reason, it is recommendable to take a supplement, which includes the full spectrum of the B vitamins.
