Nature's Way Niacin (nicotinic acid) is one of the two principal forms of the vitamin B-complex niacin. The term niacin refers to both niacinamide and nicotinic acid, the other principal form of niacin.
Niacinamide by itself does nothing, it is used as catalyst by organs and tissue to synthesize nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), the active forms of niacin.
NAD and NADP are essential for over many different biochemical processes where they donate a H+ (hydrogen) atom or a electron where it is ued to create energy. NAD and NADP are essential in the synthesis of steroid hormones from cholesterol forming of nitric oxide what causes vasodilation and regulate blood flow and blood pressure.
NAD is also involved in the activation of folate and regeneration of reduced glutathione. Glutathione is a strong antioxidant capable of extending life and protecting life itself against free radicals, toxins and abuse of medicine. Niacin(amide) supplementation is recommended since the level of toxins in our food as well as the use of prescription drugs has risen.
• important factor in renewal of skin, hair and nails
• supports cardiovascular function
• niacin helps to regenerate glutathione and therefore boosts the immune system
• necessary for normal metabolism of fats and energy release from carbohydrates
• is safe to use

What causes grey hair? Can it be prevented or treated?
One of the results of a lockdown during the current COVID-19 pandemic was that all hair parlours were closed down and those of us, why rely on their hair being dyed by professional hair stylists, were confronted with their grey hair again.
Which made me want to uncover the various reasons why people get grey hair (in my case it was mostly B12-deficiency and stress) and whether grey hair can be prevented and/or treated.
Hair gets its colour from a type of pigment called melanin. The formation of melanin begins in the fetus. Hair gets two types of pigments: the dark pigments are called eumelanin, and light pigments are called pheomelanin. These two types of melanin pigments blend together to form different types of hair colour. Again, these pigments are positioned properly in the hair follicles. So, when hair starts growing, these pigments are absorbed in the hair to give it a particular colour.
Hair colouration is a systematized process. So, if there is a slight difference in the bodily system, the hair loses its colour which is then called as grey hair. Over the decades, the researchers are working hard to find a real solution for grey hair. Unfortunately, there is no specific remedy yet come out that can provide the ultimate solution against grey hair. On the other hand, people must have a clear understanding on why they get grey hair. It will help them to find out the reasons specific to grey hair. Here are some of the causes of grey hair:
