Vitamin B3 is a part of the water-soluble B vitamin family, also known as Niacin playing an important key role in helping the body to rid itself of harmful toxins. Niacin aids in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood, improving circulation, has a role in the digestive system, the production of sex hormones, aids in the maintenance of the nervous system as well as heart health.
The Importance of Vitamin B3
Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin. The body can produce its own niacin from tryptophan with the help of B1, B2 and B6. It is an important vitamin for the functioning of the nervous system. Niacin has been well researched for its ability to improve mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. It also helps the digestion of fats, carbohydrates and protein because niacin is needed in the coenzymes that speed up these reactions. Niacin plays a part in the production of stomach acid and bile. One form of B3, niacin, lowers cholesterol because niacin is involved in chemical reactions that metabolize fats. Niacin also causes the release of histamine, a chemical responsible for dilating vessels. Thus it benefits cardiovascular diseases, where circulation is compromised, and diabetes, where decreased circulation causes numbness in the extremities. To further help with diabetes, niacin regulates blood sugar as a component of glucose tolerance factor. Niacin can also help allergy sufferers by depleting the body’s histamine stores. Histamine release leads to allergic symptoms like runny nose and itchy, watery eyes.
Why is it Flush Free?
Niacin or nicotinic acid causes a transient skin flushing. The flush is caused by the release of histamine. This is natural and harmless reaction that usually subside within 1 hour, however some individuals do find it uncomfortable. Taking niacin on a full stomach or with inositol can minimize it. Time released forms of niacin may increase the risk of liver toxicity. Niacinamide does not cause flushing but it does not have the cholesterol lowering or allergy inhibiting properties of niacin. Inositol hexaniacinate is a form of niacin that is non-flushing but still lowers cholesterol.
What are B Vitamins?
B vitamins are a complex of water-soluble vitamins. They are called "B Complex" because you do not find any one of them in a specific food or living tissue without the others being present. B vitamins complement each other. They are responsible mainly for the health and maintenance of nerves, eyes, digestion and skin, as well as the processing of carbohydrates, fat and protein, growth, the production of hormones and digestive enzymes, prevention of anaemia, maintenance of the sex glands, sebaceous glands and bone marrow.
Because of their solubility they cannot be stored in the body, so whatever is not utilized is rapidly excreted. However, a certain balance is advisable making a B Complex supplement ideal rather than taking large amounts of just one or two B vitamins. The B-complex vitamins are a group of similarly structured compounds, which is why they are referred to as a "Complex" vitamin. This complex of vitamins consists of B1 (thiamine HCL), B2 (riboflavin 5-phosphate and riboflavin HCL), B3 flush free (inositol hexanicotinate) and Niacinamide, B5 (D-pantothenic acid, calcium), B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate and pyridoxine HCL) and, B7 (biotin), B12 (cyanocobalamine), and folic acid.
Why do I Need B Vitamins?
The Nutrition Almanac states that B vitamins "may be the single most important factor for maintenance of the nerves." B vitamins are essential for healthy skin, hair, eyes, mouth and liver. Water-soluble B vitamins are not stored in the body and must be replenished daily.
All of the B vitamins work together and are best used by the body in a B complex, which is why many B complex supplements include a small dose of riboflavin in them. If additional supplementation of riboflavin is needed it should be taken in addition to a good B complex. Most B vitamins are water-soluble and any extra from large doses is flushed out of the body easily, therefore it's best to take lower dosages of the B complex several times a day than one larger dose. Spray or sublingual forms of B vitamins are easily absorbed, as are capsules - if your digestion is healthy, then the tablet form is usually suitable for most people.
