Participates as a coenzyme to the respiratory chain, and also acts as a cofactor in the oxidation of fatty acids and in a large number of oxidation reduction reactions with the function of yield or acquire hydrogen ions.

The term vitamin PP (niacin) are indicated nicotinic acid and nicotinamide. Niacin, introduced in the diet in the form of coenzymes NAD (nicotinamide adenine nucleotide) and NADP (abbreviation of Nicotinamide-Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate-) pyridine coenzyme that is formed from NAD by addition of a molecule of phosphoric acid to by ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Intervenes with mechanism similar to that of NAD in many redox processes involving cellular carbohydrate metabolism, photosynthesis, DNA synthesis and the formation of fatty acids, cholesterol and steroids) participates in many oxidation reduction reactions, in the synthesis of fatty acids and amino acids.

Vitamin PP is present in foods of animal origin (muscle, fish, liver), pulses, fruit and yeast.
The endogenous synthesis of vitamin PP (niacin), starting from tryptophan, an essential amino acid assimilable with the diet, is sufficient to normal requirements. In an adult on a diet of 2000 Kcal level of niacin is 13 mg. which rises to 20 mg. with a diet of 3000 kcal.
