👉🏽B-VITAMINS ARE NOT BORING:⁣
Essential to all forms of life, the nicotinamide coenzyme NAD+ is synthesized in the body from four precursors that are provided in the diet: nicotinic acid, nicotinamide, nicotinamide riboside, and tryptophan.⁣

💝OVERALL HEALTH:⁣
This nutrient inhibits the release of fatty acids, and it also activates phagocytic activity and lowers phosphate. ⁣
It protects against the development of scars in spinal cord injuries, facilitates recovery from traumatic brain injury, and accelerates HEALING generally. While it generally supports immunity, it’s protective against autoimmunity (Peat, 2019). ⁣

⚡️SUPPORTS ENERGY PRODUCTION:⁣
The normal pathway from tryptophan to niacin leads to formation of the coenzyme NAD, which is involved in a great variety of cellular processes, notably energy production and the maintenance of the cellular differentiated state by regulating gene expression (Peat, 2019). ⁣

🥜FOOD SOURCES OF B3:⁣
-Grains (other than corn). ⁣
-Nuts⁣
-Legumes ⁣
-Fish ⁣
-Meats ⁣
-Mushrooms ⁣
-Liver⁣
-Avocados⁣
-Potatoes⁣
(Meyer-Ficca et al., 2016).⁣

🌚WHAT HAPPENS DURING DEFICIENCY:⁣

Severe niacin deficiency presents in humans as the disease pellagra, which is characterized by the “4 Ds” (dermatitis, dementia, diarrhea, and death) (Meyer-Ficca et al., 2016).⁣

💥TAKEAWAY:⁣
Sufficient niacin intake through our diet (Supplements should be used under guidance of professional) is essential to sustaining a healthy life. ⁣
