Niacin

April 25, 2005

Niacin (also known as vitamin B3) helps the digestive system, skin, and nerves to work properly; and it assists in converting food to energy. Niacin-rich foods include dairy products, poultry, fish, lean meats, nuts, and eggs. Legumes and enriched breads and cereals also supply some niacin.
