Niacin (vitamin B3) is a coenzyme involved in the production of energy through the citric acid cycle.

It is an important cofactor in maintaining healthy psychological function. It also supports the functioning of the nervous system and contributes to the normal maintenance of skin and mucous membranes.

Niacin assists in the breakdown and utilisation of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It also causes peripheral vascular dilation (which can lead to a temporary skin flushing after ingestion - see below).

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans; GMO free

Free from lactose, gluten, sugar and soya

A "niacin flush" may cause a burst of heat, and sometimes tingling, on the skin which is then followed with a marked blush. The skin will feel hot to touch and may itch.
A niacin flush is entirely harmless and will typically last no longer than 20 minutes (often less). Each additional dose of niacin will reduce the intensity.
To minimise its impact, ensure the capsule is taken with food (a banana or apple is particularly useful in reducing the flush). Avoid hot drinks and sugary snacks immediately after consumption.
