Micro-Nutrients Vitamin-B3 (Niacin or Nicotinic Acid)

What Vitamin B-3 is: Vitamin-B3 also has forms Niacin-amide & Inositol Hexanicotinate, though The Two are Bio-Available to Body in Different Forms. B-3 helps Body Form Hormones Related to Adrenal & reproductive System Related Glands. Improves Blood Circulation and Suppresses pain & Inflammation.

Vitamin-B3 is Water Soluble, Not Stored in the Body and Regular-Daily Intake via Daily Diet is Necessary.

Also does following in the Body:

  • Keeps Bad Cholesterol (LDL-Triglycerides..) under control and increases good cholesterol (HDL),
  • Good Health of Circulatory System (Reduces Plaque formation – Atherosclerosis),
  • Good Nerve, Bone, Abdominal Health & More…

Reasons for Shortage of Vitamin-B3: Smoking & Alcoholism, and/or side-effects of Modern Development/s.

Vitamin-B3 Deficiency may lead to:

  • Pellagra (Nervous-Mental, Skin, Abdominal Malfunction & More),
  • Fatigue (Chronic),
  • Digestive Problems,
  • Circulatory System,
  • Mood Swings-Depression,
  • Bad Blood Cholesterol,
  • Possibly Diabetes,
  • Possible Osteoarthritis,
  • Possible Alzheimer Disease…

 Rich Source of Vitamin-B3:

Plant Sources:           Beets, Peanuts (A Very High Source), Wheat Flour, Cereals,                                    Pumpkin (+ Seeds)

Fruit Sources:           Pine-Apple, Dried Peaches, Citrus Fruits such as Grapefruit &                                  Oranges.

Animal Sources:        Fish (Tuna, Salmon & More), Cooked Liver (Chicken, Turkey),                                  Eggs & More…

Foods that contain Tryptophan (Amino Acid that gets converted to Niacin in Body) are Dairy Products & Eggs.

My View it is best to Avoid Synthetic Supplements and Only Go in For Organic Sources.

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
