1. how does niacin work?

Niacin is an essential vitamin. It is also known as vitamin B3. Niacin is an important component of co-enzymes. The vitamin participates in many reactions in the human body. Niacin is important for cell division and the production of fatty acids. Niacin also participates in the formation and breakdown of carbohydrates and amino acids.

The correct dosage of niacin varies from person to person. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) has determined how high the daily requirement of the vitamin should be. Women are recommended to take 10-13 mg of niacin per day. Men, on the other hand, should reach a daily intake of 14-17 mg of niacin. Adolescents, pregnant and breastfeeding women have a higher requirement. Adolescents are still growing and should always be supplied with sufficient vitamins. Pregnant and breastfeeding women have an increased requirement, as they still have to provide for their offspring. However, it should always be noted that age, weight and size always play a significant role. Furthermore, factors such as diet and lifestyle should also be taken into consideration.
