About Nicotinamide

Nicotinamide, which is sometimes called niacinamide, is a coenzyme of vitamin B3 (read: it helps B3 do its job) and is part of every living cell in the body. It is a precursor to NAD+, which is essential to a healthy body and required to help the neurological system, brain and other internal organs function at optimal efficiency. Nicotinamide becomes NAD+ through a series of chemical transformations.

Melissa Caiyem, a Colorado Springs-based health coach pursuing a PhD in natural medicine, explains that vitamin B3 can be found in both animal-based and plant-based foods, including salmon, beef, chicken, brown rice, peanuts, sunflower seeds and lentils.
