Niacinamide is the amide of vitamin B3. Other names for niacinamide include nicotinic acid amide and nicotinamide.

This is also known as "flush free" niacin; it has the same vitamin qualities as niacin but does not lower cholesterol like niacin does, and it may be toxic to the liver at doses over 3g/day.
