Info: 90 Veg. Capsules (500 mg)
Niacin provides Vitamin B, which is necessary for the body's production of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and NAD Phosphate (NADP). Together, these coenzymes aid in the body's energy production and metabolic processing.
Niacin is necessary for DNA repair and replication, and so contributes to genetic stability. Studies also suggest that it enhances cholesterol and lipid transport. While some forms of Niacin cause a blushing effect due to the dilation of blood vessels, Protocol for Life Balance sources its Niacin from Inositol Hexanicotinate, which is a stable, superior source that reduces the problems of niacin flush.
Inositol Hexanicotinate is a stable, non-flushing source of Niacin. This superior source of Niacin works to reduce the common "Niacin flush" problems associated with high doses of Niacin supplements.
Formulated by doctors and clinical scientists exclusively for licensed healthcare practitioners. Manufactured in an A-rated Good Manufacturing (GMP) Certified facility.
