Juicing Recipes for Vitamin B3

Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is an essential nutrient needed for the break down of food into energy. Vitamin B3 is also required for the repairing of damaged DNA cells and the production of natural steroidal hormones by the adrenal glands. The recommended daily dosage of vitamin B3 is 16mg for men, 14mg for women, 17-18mg for lactating/pregnant women and 9-16mg for children. Just like vitamin B1 and B2, vitamin B3 in general is found most abundantly in meat, dairy and whole grains but is also present in some fruits and vegetables that we can juice to supply ourselves with this vitamin.
