Vitamin B3 (PP) - Niacin

The Vitamin B3, or niacin, also called vitamin PP, is a group of two vitamins: nicotinic acid and its amide, nicotinamide. The discovery of such compounds is related to research carried out on the causes of pellagra, and the term “Vitamin PP” comes from these studies (PP stands for Pellagra Prevention). It doesn’t get easily destroyed in cooking and is mainly found in meat and brewer's yeast. Vitamin PP (Niacin or Niacinamide) helps to normalize energy metabolism, nervous system functioning, psychological functioning, maintains healthy skin and reduces tiredness and fatigue.
