Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for maintaining good health. Here’s what you should know about the benefits, dosage, and side effects of niacin:


Supports cardiovascular health: Niacin can help to lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels, increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels, and improve overall cardiovascular health.

Energy production: Niacin is involved in the production of ATP, which is the body’s primary source of energy.

Skin health: Niacin may help to improve skin health by reducing inflammation and supporting the production of collagen.

Brain function: Niacin may play a role in brain function by supporting healthy neuron growth and function.

Blood sugar control: Niacin may help to improve blood sugar control in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

The appropriate dosage of niacin depends on various factors, including the individual’s age, health, and reason for taking it. The recommended daily allowance for niacin is 16mg for adult males and 14mg for adult females. However, higher doses of niacin may be recommended for certain conditions, such as high cholesterol or cardiovascular disease.

Side effects:
High doses of niacin can cause side effects, including:

Flushing: Niacin can cause flushing, which is a warm, tingling sensation in the face, neck, and chest. This can be uncomfortable, but is generally not harmful.

Gastrointestinal issues: High doses of niacin can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Liver damage: Very high doses of niacin can cause liver damage, so it’s important to follow recommended dosages.

High blood sugar: Niacin can cause an increase in blood sugar levels, so individuals with diabetes should monitor their blood sugar closely when taking niacin.

It’s important to speak with your healthcare provider before taking any supplements, including niacin, to determine the appropriate dosage and to discuss any potential risks or side effects.
