What is Nicotinamide?

Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, NAA, and nicotinic amide, is the amideof nicotinic acid (vitamin B3 / niacin). Nicotinamide is a water-soluble vitamin and is part of thevitamin B group. Nicotinic acid, also known as niacin, is converted to nicotinamide in vivo, and, though the two are identical in their vitamin functions, nicotinamide does not have the same pharmacological and toxic effects of niacin, which occur incidental to niacin’s conversion. Thus nicotinamide does not reduce cholesterol or cause flushing,although nicotinamide may be toxic to the liver at doses exceeding 3 g/day for adults. In cells, niacin is incorporated into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) andnicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), although the pathways for nicotinic acid amide and nicotinic acid are very similar. NAD+ and NADP+ are coenzymes in a wide variety of enzymatic oxidation-reduction reactions. Commercial production of niacin and niacinamide (several thousand tons annually) is by hydrolysis or aminolysis of 3-cyanopyridine (nicotinonitrile).


Nicotinamide(Niacinamide) mechanism of action

Niacinamide is a derivative of vitamin B3, is a recognized cosmetic dermatology skin anti-aging ingredients,whitening, anti-wrinkle effect of nicotinamide varieties used in hair care, can stimulate hair follicles, improve hair follicle blood blur, play a role in preventing hair loss. In addition, because nicotinamide with the expansion of blood vessels, may also be used for dark circles products

Niacinamide can be made from niacin in the body. Niacin is converted to niacinamide when it is taken in amounts greater than what is needed by the body. Niacinamide is easily dissolved in water and is well-absorbed when taken by mouth.

Niacinamide is required for the proper function of fats and sugars in the body and to maintain healthy cells.

Unlike niacin, niacinamide has no beneficial effects on fats and should not be used for treating high cholesterol or high fat levels in the blood.


Nicotinamide benefits

  1. Nicotinamide can prevent pathological changes of skin and diseases of alimentary canal, such as dermatitis, black tongue, vomiting and diarrhea etc.

Niacinamide powder uses

Biochemical research; Nutrient composition of tissue medium; Clinical drugs for B vitamins, used for prevention and treatment of pellagra and stomatitis, glossitis and other diseases.

It is an essential nutrient for mammals.Water solubility is better than niacin, but it is easy to form complex with vitamin C and agglomerate.Dosage 30 ~ mg/kg.

Niacinamide and niacin are commonly used in most applications, and niacinamide is also produced in animals. Lack of nicotinamide can cause pellagra, so this product can prevent pellagra. Plays a role in the metabolism of protein and sugar, improving nutrition in humans and animals. It can be used as a nutritional additive in cosmetics. Also used in medicine and food, feed additives.
