1. what happens in the case of a vitamin B3 deficiency?

A vitamin B3 deficiency is often caused by a monotonous diet. In this case, foods containing vitamin B3 are missing, which can quickly lead to an undersupply. Symptoms that often occur with a vitamin B3 deficiency are scaly skin, gastrointestinal inflammation and skin changes.

Vitamin B3 deficiency can be caused by a number of things:

  • Alcohol abuse
  • low intake of foods containing vitamin B3
  • taking certain medications (e.g. psychotropic drugs)
  • congenital transport disorders of amino acids
  • neuroendocrine tumours

    2 What is the daily requirement of niacin?

    According to the recommendation of the German Nutrition Society (DGE), adults should take a daily amount of approx. 11 - 17 mg of nicotinic acid or niacin as a vitamin of the B complex. Adolescents, as well as pregnant or breastfeeding women have the highest need for niacin. In general, however, you should know that the daily amount of the vitamin also depends on your age, gender, weight and energy requirements.

    3. functions of niacin

    • Maintenance of a normal energy metabolism
    • Maintenance of normal mucous membranes
    • Carbohydrate formation and breakdown
    • Signal transduction
    • Cell division
    • Maintenance of a healthy immune system

    4. vitamin B3 in the form of food supplements

    Niacin should normally be absorbed daily by the body. The best way, of course, is through a healthy and balanced diet. However, many people find it very difficult to cover their complete vitamin requirements. In that case, vitamin B3 should be taken in supplemental form to avoid a niacin deficiency. Vitamin B3 is commercially available in the form of dietary supplements. It comes in the form of niacin capsules and niacin tablets. Both forms are easy to use and enter the circulation quickly.

    5. conclusion: What happens with a vitamin B3 deficiency?

    When there is a deficiency of vitamin B3, the body is no longer adequately supplied with niacin. An undersupply can have many different causes. On the one hand, a vitamin B3 deficiency can be caused by a deficient diet. On the other hand, it can be caused by a congenital digestive disorder. A deficiency can be easily controlled with a change in diet. A supplementation of vitamin B3 in the form of food supplements can be very useful. You can choose between niacin capsules and niacin tablets.
