Vitamin B3, a water soluble nutrient, appears in several different forms, all of which can be referred to as niacin.
One of the forms is nicotinamide, (synonymous with niacinamide) which is the form of niacin that is generally recommended for supplements.
The chemical structure of niacin is similar to the amino acid tryptophan and in fact the body can make some niacin from tryptophan.
Niacin is most abundant in high protein foods such as meat, fish and nuts. Niacin functions in over fifty metabolic reactions.
It plays a key role in glycolysis, the Krebs Cycle and the hexose monophosphate shunt, all of which are important in the release of energy from macronutrients.
It is also needed in the deamination of amino acids, essential fatty acid metabolism and in the metabolism of fatty acids.
By playing a role in the formation of red blood cells, steroids, and in energy production within the cells, niacin is vital in maintaining the integrity of all body cells.
