Life Extension Niacin (B3) caps, 500 mg, 100 caps

 

Niacin is the only B vitamin that can be synthesized in the liver from the amino acid tryptophan — on average, 1 mg of niacin can be synthesized from the ingestion of 60 mg of tryptophan.

In its coenzyme forms, niacin is crucial to energy transfer reactions, particularly the metabolism of glucose, fat, and alcohol.

Niacin’s beneficial effects on blood lipids is well-documented.
