Origins of Vitamin B3
After many years of scientific experiments, Vitamin B3 was given its name by Conrad Arnold Elvehjem in 1937 after its structure was discovered. It was initially used in 1867 for photographic use before Elvehjem realised that the deficiency disease for Vitamin B3, pellagra, could be cured by extra intake in this vitamin. The scientific name of Vitamin B3 is Niacin, although it is more commonly referred to as Vitamin B3 because it was the third B vitamin to be discovered.
Niacin can be created internally from another amino acid called tryptophan, although the vitamin is also found in meat, fish, eggs, milk, and wheat products, such as bran flakes, oats and bread.
Benefits of Vitamin B3
Niacin is known for its ability to stimulate the maintenance of normal mucous membranes, contributing to normal energy metabolism. In addition, the vitamin promotes the normal functioning of the nervous system and contributes to both the maintenance of normal skin and normal psychological function.
