Nicotinamide is known to contain whitening properties, while vitamin B3 is a medicine that has a complementary effect on whitening. So Is vitamin B3 the same as nicotinamide?

Nicotinamide is not the same as vitamin b3, it is a derivative of vitamin b3 and is a substance that is transformed when vitamin b3 enters the body. Vitamin b3, also known as niacin, is metabolized in the body to the active substance nicotinamide after consumption. Nicotinamide is an amide compound of niacin (vitamin B3), which belongs to the B vitamin derivatives and is a nutrient needed in the human body and generally beneficial.

Vitamin B3 is an important substance in the body and a deficiency can still have a significant impact on the body. It accelerates the breakdown of melanin in the body and a deficiency can easily cause symptoms of euphoria and insomnia. It affects normal cellular respiration and metabolism and deficiency can easily lead to pellagra. Therefore in clinical practice nicotinamide tablets are used mainly for the treatment of stomatitis, pellagra, and tongue inflammation caused by niacin deficiency. In addition, a lack of vitamin b3 can affect appetite, lethargy, dizziness, fatigue, weight loss, abdominal pain and discomfort, indigestion and lack of concentration. It is advisable to take vitamin supplements while adjusting your daily diet by eating more eggs, lean meat and soy products for balanced nutrition, and dietary supplements are better than medication.

Nicotinamide is a white crystalline powder, which is odorless or almost odorless, but bitter in taste and easily soluble in water or ethanol. Nicotinamide is always used in cosmetics for skin whitening. It is generally used in clinical practice mainly for the control of pellagra, stomatitis and tongue inflammation. It is also used to combat problems such as sick sinus node syndrome and atrioventricular block. When the body is deficient in nicotinamide, it may be susceptible to disease.

nicotinamide can generally be consumed in food, so people whose bodies are deficient in nicotinamide can usually consume foods rich in nicotinamide, such as animal liver, milk, eggs, and fresh vegetables, or they can use medicines containing nicotinamide under medical supervision, and vitamin B3 can be used instead if necessary. As nicotinamide is a derivative of nicotinic acid, vitamin B3 can often be used instead of nicotinamide.
