Vitamin B3 is known as Niacinamide and helps support the healthy metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and fats within the digestive system.
Westcoast Naturals Vitamin B3 is an active form of Niacin that does not cause flushing or skin irritation. Niacinamide and Niacin are twin vitamins with B3 status, but they are not identical. The difference is that Niacinamide is bound with amino acids, which prevents the flush effect (burning or tingling sensation of the face, chest, or neck), which frequently occurs with niacin supplementation. Niacinamide is required to properly function fats and sugars in the body and maintain healthy cells.
