About Niacin

Niacin is a type of B vitamin. It is water-soluble and is not stored in the body. Therefore you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine.

Niacin helps the digestive system, skin, and nerves to function. It is also important for converting food to energy.

Doses of 1 - 3 grams of nicotinic acid per day has been a treatment option for low HDL cholesterol and high LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

However, large doses of niacin can cause increased blood sugar level, peptic ulcers, liver damage and skin rashes.

Recommended daily intake of niacin is 16 mg for adult males and 14 mg for adult females.
