Niacin (Vitamin B-3 Nicotinic Acid)

NIACIN

Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin, also known as vitamin B-3.  The term niacin refers to nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, which are both used by the body to form the coenzymes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phospate (NADP). Neither form is related to the nicotine found in tobacco, although their names are similar (1)
