Niacinamide (sometimes called nicotinamide) or Vitamin B3 is a water soluble nutrient that is of great importance for the maintenance of good health. Niacinamide is the biologically active form of niacin. It is essential in the metabolism of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates for energy. Niacinamide facilitates the body's ability to eliminate toxins and assists in antioxidant and detoxification functions. Niacinamide aids the digestion system with the production of hydrochloric acid and in the normal secretion of bile and stomach fluids. This helps with weight loss, diarrhea, and enhances muscular energy. Niacinamide dilates blood vessels, allowing more nutrition and oxygen to be delivered to the body’s tissues and organs. So Niacinamide is very effective in enhancing memory, relieving migraines, muscle recovery, decreasing high blood pressure, and in treating dizziness and ringing in the ears. It maintains the nervous system, promotes healthy skin (relieves acne), and reduces high blood pressure and vascular problems in the eye.
Niacinamide provides the same beneficial effects as niacin, without the cholesterol lowering effects, and does not cause flushing. Research has found Niacinamide to be very effective in preventing type I diabetes from progressing in some patients if given soon enough at the onset of diabetes. Swiss Herbal’s Niacinamide is an excellent source of this essential nutrient - in convenient tablet form.
