Health benefits of B3 niacin

Cholesterol—Niacin has beneficial effects on blood lipids, helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range.

Cellular energy—Vitamin B coenzymes (such as niacin) are crucial to the metabolic pathways that generate cellular energy.

Metabolism—Vitamin B3 is required for the body to utilize dietary fats and carbohydrates, and to metabolize alcohol.
