Our Freeze Dried Nopal Powder Capsules (Prickly Pear) contains Niacin or nicotinic acid (Vitamin B3)(1*).

Niacin is needed for cell respiration, energy release, healthy skin, proper circulation, and protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism. It also supports the nervous system's function and the endocrine system's secretion of acids and bile(2*).  

Additionally, niacin serves as a memory enhancer and in synthesizing sex hormones. It is also a treatment for schizophrenia and other known mental disorders(3*).

Niacin (B3) deficiency can cause skin eruptions, muscular weakness, canker sores, low blood sugar, depression, loss of appetite, diarrhea, limb pains, dizziness, insomnia, fatigue, indigestion, halitosis, and headaches(4*), (5*). A deficiency may also cause pellagra which is characterized by bilateral dermatitis, diarrhea, and dementia(6*).
