Abstract

Abstract Niacin (CAS: 59-67-6) is a water-soluble B vitamin required for the formation of NAD+ and NADP+ in the body tissue. It is most often used as a nutritional supplement for the adjunctive treatment of dyslipidemia as well as niacin deficiency, known as pellagra. Most commonly, niacin has been known to induce acute vasodilation. Chronic megadoses have been associated with hepatotoxicity.
