IN THE BODY
A daily intake of Niacin is absolutely necessary for a
healthy system. Niacin helps to convert amino acids and
tryptophan, to Niacin.
Lack of Niacin can lead to dermatitis, pellagra, loose
stool, loss of appetite, anxiety dementia and extreme depression.
Natural forms of Niacin exist in whole grains, fish and meat.
- Women: 14 mg
- Men: 16 mg
- During Pregnancy: 18 mg
- During breast feeding: 17 mg
Headaches and liver damage are known to occur when excessive
amounts of Niacin are taken into the body.
A burning or itching sensation is also likely to occur when
you have too much niacin.
If used when taking a anticonvulsant drug, the effects of
that drug will be greatly increased.
In supplement form, Niacin is used to combat diabetes,
mental disorders, high cholesterol and chronic fatigue.
High does of Niacin should be avoided if you have problems
with asthma, diabetes, liver disease. Also,
if you are currently taking medication for high blood
pressure, high amounts of Niacin should not be taken.
