So, what is niacyna?

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3 or niacyanin, is an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in maintaining good health. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is found in a variety of foods, including meat, fish, poultry, and grains. Niacin is involved in a number of metabolic processes in the body, including the conversion of food into energy, the regulation of cholesterol levels, and the maintenance of healthy skin, nerves, and digestion. In supplement form, niacin is often used to help lower cholesterol levels, improve circulation, and treat certain skin conditions. However, it's important to take niacin supplements only under the guidance of a healthcare professional, as high doses can cause side effects.
