Heart Health – NIACIN – Circulation is a Full Body Proposition
The Head-to-Toe, Inside & Out B Vitamin
Niacin is important enough to warrant a name and a number! As part of the Vitamin B family, Niacin is known as Vitamin B-3 and is related to the other B vitamins through their shared support of the nervous system. On its own, however, Niacin is prized for its ability to promote healthy circulation. This healthy movement of the blood throughout the body supports a variety of systems including the heart and skin, as well as cell growth and metabolic function.
According to the Institute of Medicine, Niacin, a water-soluble B-vitamin, is rapidly absorbed in the stomach and intestines and is metabolized by all body tissues. Dietary sources include proteins, particularly meat, fish and poultry as well as enriched bread products and fortified cereals. Low intakes of this vitamin may cause skin and digestive concerns.
