Vitamin B3 - Niacin
Vitamin B3, also called Niacin, helps the body to convert carbohydrates into glucose (sugar), which is "burned" to produce energy. B complex vitamins also play an important role in maintaining muscle tone along the digestive tract and promoting the health of the nervous system, skin, hair, eyes, mouth, and liver.
Niacin plays an important role in ridding the body of toxic and harmful chemicals. It is also critical in producing various sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands. Niacin is effective in improving circulation and reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.
This key vitamin acts as a natural regulator to the body's hormones and maintains that hormone levels operate at peak efficiency while the improvement of circulation and reduction of cholesterol build up are the foundation of consistent erections. Rizer XL ™ also determined that the benefits of overall health were fundamental, not just in this particular ingredient but in all ingredients that were included.
Vitamin B3 is effective in:
