Niacin (Vitamin B3) is an essential vitamin found in turkey, chicken, peanuts, mushrooms, yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, beans, and cereal grains. It is a vital part of the Krebs cycle, which is critical for energy production. As nerve cells are heavy users of energy, they wouldn’t be able to function without this key ingredient.

Niacin is used for high cholesterol. It is also used along with other treatments for circulation problems, migraine headache, dizziness, as well as cognitive issues and depression. Other uses include the management of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), memory loss, arthritis, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation and preventing cataracts.
