Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3 - Nicotinamide (elemental) - 5.33 mg

In the form of Vitamin B3 Nicotinamide - 5.33 mg

B complex

Vitamin B deficiencies are common, so a safe supplementation is justified.
For all B vitamins, it is recommended to take a B complex instead of individual B vitamins. These work in synergy with each other and a complex ensures that the underlying relationships are in balance.

Description

Vitamin B3 is a part of NAD and NADP and plays a role in tissue respiration, in glycogen-, lipid-, AZ-, protein- and purine-metabolism, in blood circulation, and in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels.

Dosage

Vitamin B3 is abundant in various foods, which means that the risk of a nutritional deficiency is virtually negligible. A deficiency can occur with a strict vegetarian diet, chronic alcoholism or severe intestinal disease. That is why the dose of B3 is kept at 1/3rd of the official RDA.
