Niacinamide is a vitamin B3 formula designed to support glucose metabolism and metabolic function. Niacinamide may also promote healthy joint mobility and comfort.
Niacinamide does not cause the vasodilation (“flush”) associated with niacin. Research indicates that niacinamide may support healthy glucose metabolism and protect pancreatic beta cell function. In a meta-analysis of 10 randomized controlled trials, niacinamide supplementation promoted healthy C-peptide levels, insulin metabolism and beta cell function. In another study, niacinamide helped maintain healthy C-peptide levels and glucose metabolism. Niacinamide also promotes joint mobility and comfort. In a 12-week randomized double-blind trial involving 72 subjects, niacinamide provided statistically significant support for joint flexibility. Alpha lipoic acid is included to offer synergistic support for healthy glucose balance and metabolic function.
