Niacinamide is a form of the essential nutrient, vitamin B3. It can be made in the body from excess niacin and helps to prevent vitamin B3 deficiency. Niacinamide is necessary for processing fats and sugars and helps to maintain cellular health. It supports the healthy function of skin and tissue.
Niacinamide is not produced naturally by your body, so to gain the benefits of niacinamide for skin, you’ll need to seek out external sources. This vitamin can support the skin barrier and is a popular ingredient in topical skin care products. That said you can still reap the benefits from oral ingestion of B3 supplements.
