Niacin is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and fat and the generation of energy from foods. Niacin is needed in the formation of red blood cells and some hormones, and in the metabolism of some drugs and toxicants. Niacin is also required in the production of hydrochloric acid. Niacin supports normal central nervous system function and is important to the health of the skin and helps maintain normal digestive tract function. Nicotinic acid stimulates circulation, helps maintain normal blood pressure and blood triglyceride levels. Nicotinic acid is very effective at lowering LDL cholesterol while raising HDL cholesterol, both of which support normal cholesterol levels. Niacin has been important to the field of orthomolecular nutrition for its use supporting the higher functions of the brain and cognition. While niacin was originally helpful for the dementia of pellagra, high doses have been used to support normal mood and psychological function.
