Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, belongs to the group of hydrosoluble vitamins, those that do not accumulate in our organism. It's known by being one of the substances that fights cardiovascular diseases the most, along with omega 3, as it produces an increase of HDL and a decrease of triglycerides, which improves the lipid profile and decreases the possibilities of suffering a stroke.
