Useful information about nicotinamide and deficiency symptoms
Nicotinamide is the amide of nicotinic acid (niacin, vitamin B3) and is a water-soluble vitamin. It plays an important role in the body by its involvement in many enzymatic processes. Nicotinamide is involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

A particularly large amount of nicotinamide contains fish (such as anchovies, tuna fish, salmon, mackerel) and meat (lean beef, calf and pork, poultry) and offal. Plant foods such as mung beans, peanuts and fungi also have a high content. In the case of eating habits in Germany, meat, coffee and wholegrain bread are among the main suppliers.

The water-soluble vitamin transfers into the water during cooking, so in the event of a tendential deficiency, it may be useful to continue to use the cooking water.
Nicotinamide deficiency, for example, can be caused by a long-term lopsided diet, but certain diseases may also be associated with nicotinamide deficiency. These include, for example:

  • Alcoholism
  • Anorexia
  • Chronic diarrhoea
  • Hartnup disease (metabolic disease) or even
  • Liver disease

Nicotinamide deficiency symptoms may include:

  • Skin inflammation
  • Feeling tired and weak
  • Inflammation of the tongue
  • Nerve inflammation
  • Inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Dry mouth and burning in the mouth
  • Depressive mood and irritability

Nicotinamide deficiency is often accompanied by a lack of other B vitamins and can be checked, for example, by means of a blood test.
Please discuss this with your physician or pharmacist.
