Niacin is a form of Vitamin B3 that plays a critical role in the metabolism of fat, carbohydrates and amino acids in the body. It is naturally found in foods such as yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, and cereal grains. It can also be produced in the body from tryptophan, which is found in protein-containing food. It helps keep the nervous system, digestive system and skin healthy and has shown significant effects in pathway lipid metabolism.

Additional Information on Niacin
Niacin is a precursor of the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) in vivo. Clinical research has shown that Niacin causes significant effects in pathway lipid metabolism. Niacin is often sold as immediate release (IR) which is rapidly digested and absorbed and associated with flushing as a side effect. Sustained release (SR) is a form of Niacin in which the Niacin is released over long periods of time but is also believed to cause liver harm.
