My favorite B vitamin with Niacin (B3) –

Niacin from food is converted into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and NAD phosphate (NADP). These active forms of niacin are then used by enzymes to perform energy-producing chemical reactions. Thus, your cells would struggle to make energy without them.

NAD works with many other enzymes as well, including those responsible for protecting and repairing your DNA. This helps explain why deficiencies are linked to advanced aging and degenerative diseases. In fact, studies have shown that niacin acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Plus, research has shown that the incidence of cancer and oxidative stress increases as NAD-dependent enzyme activity decreases.
