So, what is niatsiin?

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is an essential nutrient required for energy metabolism and maintaining healthy skin, nerves, and digestion. It can be found in a variety of foods, including meat, fish, poultry, and fortified cereals. Niacin plays a crucial role in converting carbohydrates into glucose, which the body uses for energy, and in regulating cholesterol levels. Additionally, niacin is involved in DNA repair and cell signaling, making it important for overall health and wellness. Despite its benefits, excessive niacin intake can lead to uncomfortable side effects, including flushing and gastrointestinal distress.
