All About Vitamins: Niacin and Risk of Depression

By Kyle J. Norton.

A 2015 study by a renowned institute suggested that niacin and other nutrient deficiency may be associated to a risk factor of psychological syndrome of depression.

Depression is a normal response as part of our daily lives such as the loss of s job, the death of a love one, and illness. Over 30 million Americans suffer from depression and the amount is increasing in an alarming rate.

Niacin, is also known as vitamin B3, nicotinic acid, an organic compound with the formula
C6H5NO2, found abundantly in chicken, beef, fish, cereal, peanuts and legumes. The vitamin is associated to cellular integrity and energy production involved in more than 500 intracellular reactions.

In a total of 130 older subjects participated in the study with 65 diagnosed depression (16 men and 49 women) and 65 age- and sex-matched controls without depression, the incidence of depression may be attributed the poor nutrients intake, including more intake of of sucrose and insufficient consumption of protein, fiber, eicosapentaenoic acid, niacin and vitamin B6.

The study also indicated that these nutrient inappropriate in patients with depression also expressed a lower quality of life in compared to control, by comprehensive geriatric assessment.

Other, in cross-sectional study conducted of the intake of major (that is, carbohydrates, fat, and protein) and minor (that is, vitamins and minerals) nutrients in adults with confirmed mood disorders, higher intake of nutrients are significant correlations to higher mental function and inversely associated to risk of mental disorder.

Mood disordered patients also showed a mild and moderated expression of depression, but not consistently.

Taking together, there is no doubt that deficiency of niacin other nutrients may exaggerated  the risk of depression.
