Niacin Lozenges by Seeking Health provide 50 mg of niacin, also known as vitamin B3, a nutrient that is naturally produced in the body and is found in many of the foods we eat. Niacin may help support healthy circulation, healthy carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and healthy skin. Because the body cannot store niacin, it requires adequate intake of this important vitamin every day.
Niacin may support normal mood regulation by relieving any symptoms that could be related to a deficiency of this important vitamin. One of the building blocks of serotonin is the amino acid tryptophan, and one of the building blocks of tryptophan is niacin. Tryptophan also helps maintain healthy levels of niacin within the body. If tryptophan is divided between serotonin production and niacin production, serotonin production may be reduced when niacin levels are inadequate. Supplemental niacin and tryptophan can be beneficial for healthy moods.
Niacin is important for proper functioning of all cells, including the cells of the brain and nervous system. Niacin has the well-known effect of causing vasodilation, often called the niacin "flush," which is an opening of small blood vessels (capillaries) for increased blood flow. These are the blood vessels which are of most value in reaching fatty tissues. Healthy blood flow is important for allowing toxins stored in these fatty tissues to be removed into the bloodstream, and processed out of the body. Niacin may also support healthy skin by promoting normal moisture retention, elasticity and tone. Niacin may also support healthy cartilage.
