Poor Memory and Confused? You might need Vitamin B3

Firstly, the common forms of synthetic supplemental B3, sold as “natural”, are:

  • Nicotinic Acid (Niacin) is the acid form of Vitamin B3 and can cause unpleasant hot skin rashes.

  • Xanthinol Nicotinate – a synthetic form of the Nicotinic Acid form

  • Niacinamide is the main food form of Vitamin B3 which is as found in dietary sources.

Our preferred form of is Niacinamide, but created within a food complex with food proteins that deliver the vitamin to receptor sites in the body. A good analogy is the address on an envelope – each part of the address is necessary for the proper delivey of the envelope. The same applies with nutrients – they need a full address. Non Food State vitamins and minerals do not have full delivery address and are obviously not so effective
