Vitamin B3 is important for the production of two coenzymes: NAD and NADP, which are essential elements of many energy-producing processes. NAD alone is necessary for the functioning of more than 400 enzymes, while NADP promotes the production of cholesterol and fatty acids, as well as the antioxidant functions of cells.
