Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:

Niacinamide

Vitamin B3 is made up of niacin (nicotinic acid) and its amide, niacinamide, and can be found in yeast, meat, fish, milk, eggs, green vegetables, and cereal grains. Dietary tryptophan is also converted to niacin in the body. Vitamin B3 is often found in combination with other B vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, cyanocobalamin, and folic acid.

There's been specualtion that Niacinamide has positive effect on the HDL/choelsterol ratio, however, research indicates it is Niacine, not Niacinamide, that affects cholesterol levels.

Niacin decreases the rate of hepatic synthesis of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) while raising high-density lipoprotein. This has led to a lowering of serum cholesterol by 10 to 15% and triglycerides by 20 to 30%. Niacinamide is not effective in lowering serum cholesterol.

High doses of Niacin can cause an uncomfortable flushing effect where the skin of the upper body reddens and become itchy due to histamine release. Tolerance after a few weeks of treatment usually develops and the flushin effect desreases.

Niacinamide is often sold in supplement form as no-flush Niacin, but it doesn't have the same positive lipid effects.
