Vitamin B3 is a hydrosoluble vitamin (water soluble). It is also known as niacin or vitamin PP.
Vitamin B3 is found principally in poultry, cereals and liver.
Vitamin B3, a precursor to NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) and NADP+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate), are part of the composition of two highly important electron carriers for energetic metabolism. Vitamin B3 is therefore involved in more than 200 enzymatic reactions that have an important effect on the oxidative stress of cells. It is therefore highly useful in the case of micro-inflammation, particularly in the digestive tract.
