If you’re looking for ways to boost your memory, boost your energy, and boost your brain health in general, let’s talk Vitamin B3 or Niacin.
So this vitamin is responsible for a multitude of different functions in your body over 400 reactions including repairing DNA, converting nutrients into energy, supporting your digestive system, skin and nerves as well as boosting your HDL or good cholesterol.
So although animal-based sources such as poultry, beef, salmon, and tuna are some of the most readily available for your body to use, there are a lot of plant-based sources that you can try as well. These include beans, legumes, avocados, bananas, dates, and leafy greens. Unlike other B vitamins, Niacin is heat stable, meaning very little of it is lost in the cooking process.
So hopefully this little boost will get you through the rest of the week and tune in next time for our vitamin series.
