Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin is a water-soluble member of the Vitamin-B Complex, whose coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (“NAD”) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (“NADP”) are needed for oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions; which derive energy for living organisms.
NAD functions most often in energy producing reactions involving the degradation (catabolism) of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and alcohol. NADP functions more often in biosynthetic (anabolic) reactions, such as in the synthesis of all macromolecules, including fatty acids and cholesterol.[1,2]
Some medical professionals also think Niacin is effective for treating arthritis and migraines.[3,4] Some believe Niacin’s dilating effect will help stabilize the over dilating-constricting cycle of blood vessels in the brain.
Each serving of Elebra contains Niacin, and is manufactured in the USA at a cGMP facility that has an "A" rating (the highest possible) from the National Nutritional Foods Association. We stand behind our product and offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
