The incredibly versatile vitamin B3 or niacin makes your skin glow and look younger.

Vitamin B3 repairs the skin

Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is a very effective nutrient for the skin that offers many benefits for mature and blemish-prone skin. The special: it repairs skin damage, which helps, for example, uneven complexion, fine lines, dullness and weakened skin barrier.

Vitamin B3 activates the energy centers of the cells

An international team of researchers has investigated why increasing age is associated with degeneration of physical organs such as the liver, muscles and heart. By studying older mice, they found that vitamin B3 activates mitochondria – the energy centers of cells – allowing organs and muscles to regenerate better and behave like a younger version of themselves again.

Of course, further research is needed here to determine how and in what dosages vitamin B3 can be used.
