Niacin Coupon Details

Niacin, also called nicotinic acid or nicotinamide, is a water soluble B vitamin complex and plays a key role in many areas of the body:

• Breaks down fats and carbohydrates for energy production in the body
• Encourages proper blood flow
• Helps maintain nervous system
• Promotes healthy skin
• Regulate gastro-intestinal function
• Repairs DNA
• Aids in the proper synthesis of many hormones in the body, including estrogen, progesterone, cortisone and insulin

Health Benefits

Because it plays so many roles in the body, niacin has many health benefits. For example, nicotinic acid is known to help regulate cholesterol by lowering LDL’s (“bad” cholesterol) and raising HDL’s (“good” cholesterol). Not surprisingly, it may also help reduce plaque buildup in arteries and studies have shown it assists in the prevention of heart attacks.

Studies on niacin’s role in repairing DNA indicate that it may help prevent cancer, which some scientists believe is caused by the mutation of DNA. High doses of niacin may also slow the progression of AIDS.

Niacin has also been linked to a decreased risk of type 1 diabetes, cataracts, and Alzheimer’s disease. Ailments which can benefit from higher doses of niacin include depression, schizophrenia, arthritis, dermatitis, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.

Sign of Deficiency

Niacin was first used in 1937 to treat the disease Pellagra, which is caused by a deficiency of niacin. Pellagra is found among people with poor diets and alcoholics. Refugees, homeless people, and prisoners in labor camps, in particular, are affected. Symptoms include insomnia, dermatitis, alopecia, diarrhea, red skin lesions, high sensitivity to sunlight, mental confusion, and eventually dementia.

Dietary Sources

With a healthy diet, nicotinic acid is produced from the amino acid tryptophan. However, both forms of niacin can be obtained through diet. Good sources include red beets, brewer’s yeast, chicken, beef liver, tuna, salmon, sunflower seeds, and legumes. Because niacin is water soluble, excess niacin is excreted in the urine, so a diet with adequate amounts of niacin or tryptophan should be maintained.

Dosage

A healthy diet usually provides enough of the body's needs, but if supplements are taken, the recommended intake is about 20 mg for men and 16 mg for women.


Side effects

While there are no known serious side effects from ingesting niacin, some people are sensitive to niacin and may experience flushing, reddening of skin from dilating blood vessels, and gastrointestinal irritation.
