Niacinamide is a naturally occurring nutrient belonging to the pyridine carboxylic acid family. It is an important form of vitamin B3, an essential nutrient that supports many cellular processes and plays an important role in energy metabolism. Animal and refined grain-based products are fortified with Niacinamide.
It is a water-soluble vitamin that promotes release of energy from foods and enhances proper nervous system functioning. Along with systemic benefits, it also offers a wide range of topical benefits. Also, it is the preferred form of Vitamin B3 for treating Pellagra.

Common applications for niacinamide are in food, feed and beverages, health and personal care and the pharmaceutical industry. Niacinamide has several other health benefits and uses as follows:
HELPFUL FOR SKIN CARE & IN PREVENTING SKIN CANCER
Niacinamide plays an important role in keeping the skin healthy. For this reason, it’s a popular additive in the cosmetic and skincare industry. When applied topically or taken orally as a supplement, niacinamide has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. It has been used to treat skin conditions like acne and rosacea, a facial skin disorder characterized by redness.
t is also a promising supplement which may help in preventing Melanoma which is a serious type of skin cancer that develops in the cells that produce melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its color. Owing to its role in keeping your cells healthy, oral supplements of niacinamide have been shown to enhance DNA repair in UV damaged skin in humans.
THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS / USES
Chronic kidney disease is the progressive loss of kidney function which can cause a harmful buildup of chemicals.
Research suggests that niacinamide may help decrease phosphate levels in people with kidney dysfunction by blocking its absorption. It’s been suggested that niacinamide protects and preserves the beta cells, thereby preventing or delaying the onset of type 1 diabetes in at-risk individuals.
|Food & Beverage||Nutrient supplement in foods such as dairy, breakfast cereals & infant formulas, as an additive in beverages, energy/health drinks|
|Health & Personal Care||Used in formulations of foundations, moisturizers, skin care products, lipsticks and eye shadows|
|Pharmaceuticals||Predominantly used as a dietary supplement & vitamin supplement in health drinks and also used in antipellagra factor drug|
|Animal Feed||Nutritional supplement in animal feed as well as pet food|
