NOW Niacinamide 

Helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and protein. Helps normal growth and development. The use of niacinamide as a source of vitamin B-3 is often preferred over niacin because it does not produce flushing of the skin, which is the most common side effect of niacin use. Niacinamide also appears to have no effect on insulin secretion or glucose kinetics, unlike niacin, which can increase insulin resistance.

Vitamin B-3 is an essential nutrient. Vitamin B-3 comes in the form of niacin (nicotinic acid) or its amide, niacinamide. The human body can make niacinamide from tryptophan, an amino acid found in protein-containing foods such as red meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products, but this accounts for only a fraction of the body’s requirements. Niacin can also be converted to niacinamide in the body. Vitamin B-3 is involved in a range of metabolic processes and is a coenzyme in several important biochemical functions. Niacinamide is a component of the coenzymes called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). It combines with them to convert glycogen into glucose and to release energy from body tissues.
