Niacin is the activated form of vitamin B3. This form is rapidly used by the body for energy production.
Niacin is known as a methyl acceptor, meaning that it helps to mop excess methyl groups and rapidly reduce the effects of over supplementing.
Practitioners advise that it is good practice to have niacin available when first introducing methylcobalamin, methyl folate or SAM-e.
What does Niacin do?
Consumption of Niacin causes methyl groups to be utilised.
Contains Nicotinamide (Niacin) which contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system and is necessary for normal neurological function.
Niacin is also one of the building blocks of the amino acid tryptophan, which is turn is converted into the neurotransmitter serotonin. Niacin can therefore help with maintaining a healthy mood.
Niacin is the precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) which is involved in DNA repair.
