Vitamin B3 – NADH 500ml

Niacin is the generic name for nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, either of which may act as a source of the vitamin in the diet. Nicotinic acid is a monocarboxylic acid derivative of pyridine. Niacin is one of the end products of the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation (a pyridoxal 5 phosphate dependent process). Niacinamide is the amide of niacin and is an essential component of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADH+). Both of which are involved with electron and hydrogen transfer.


NADH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Hydrate)

This is a naturally occurring molecule found throughout the human body. It is a coenzyme involved in the manufacture of energy in the Krebs or citric acid cycle. NADH is an important electron carrier. Niacin (nicotinic acid) is converted to nicotinamide (niacinamide), which is converted in the body to NAD. When NAD+ picks up 2 hydrogen electrons it makes NADH. NADH has a special role generating ATP (energy) through the oxidation of food molecules.
