If you’re not feeling optimal, you may have a Vitamin B3 deficiency as EVERY part of your body needs it to function. Here’s how VIT B3 can support your wellbeing…


VIT B3 In The Body: B3 converts in the body to NADH, in different forms…




LIVER: VIT B3 transports fats through the body by synthesizing fats from carbs and turning carbs into glucose, to supply energy to the cells. This means you get increased energy and weight loss support!


BRAIN: VIT B3 increases serotonin activity that improves mood, decreases stress and lessens insomnia. Yeah to feeling happier and sleeping better!


HEART: Nicotinic Acid supports cardiovascular health and cholesterol by normalizing lipid blood levels; removes the bad, LDL & triglycerides and increases the good, HDL. From our heart to yours


INSULIN: Inositol (longer release of B3) improves insulin levels/sensitivity for diabetes support, aids in weight loss, supports fertility for women diagnosed with PCOS, and helps sex hormone production to relieve ED in men.


SKIN: Niacinamide is converted in the body from extra Niacin. It’s beneficial for skin health by reducing the sensitivity, redness and hyperpigmentation caused by acne, age and sun spots. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier for healthy, defended skin.


Food Rx: Your diet is likely to have the recommended daily amount of B3 if you have multiple daily servings of whole, natural foods across a wide variety of food groups.


*I highly recommend Nutritional Flakes (dried yeast): a delicious, vegetarian protein to use as a daily food complement: mix into soups, vegetables, smoothies, salads, etc.  1 TBSP = 4g protein.  That’s almost as much protein as one egg (6g protein) but without any cholesterol!!!  It’s also an ideal source of essential and non-essential amino acids.


*More excellent food sources of niacin: tuna, chicken, turkey, peanuts, and crimini mushrooms.


Supplement Rx: Dr. Kevan offers comprehensive health consults and the MAR acupuncture apothecary includes only the most efficacious and safe nutraceuticals. Together, we will discuss the appropriate Vit B3 dose and form of administration to relieve your unique symptoms. You will have the option of taking Vitamin B3 in the form of an oral tablet, liquid, or injection therapy.
