Niacinamide, also called nicotinamide, is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the vitamin B complex. Although it is similar in function to niacin, the two forms of vitamin B3 have different chemical compositions. These differences allow each form of B3 to carry out specific functions in the body.
Unlike niacin, niacinamide does not cause flushing, the reddening, itching and tingling of the skin that some people experience after taking niacin. Niacinamide does not have the same vasodilation properties as niacin.
Niacinamide can be synthesized by the body. When niacin is taken in greater amounts than needed for normal body functions, the excess can be converted to niacinamide.
Niacinamide can be used to combat niacin deficiency. Both niacin and niacinamide help the body to metabolize fats, proteins, and carbohydrates for energy production.*
Niacinamide has also been found to be beneficial in treating inflammatory skin conditions.*
Niacin may help to stimulate the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. With improved functionality, insulin production may return to healthier levels in individuals who need insulin injections.*
