Niacin And Vinegar Intereaction

Niacin And Vinegar Intereaction

There is no scientific evidence on the Niacin and vinegar interaction. However, theoretical interactions are based on potential pH altering effects of vinegar. The degree to which it affects pH in the blood is, however, currently not established.

So, what happens when pH in the body is altered and how does this affect the interaction with the Vitamin B3 (Niacin)?

Water is considered neutral at a pH of 7. Anything below that is increasingly acidic, anything above and over that value is increasingly alkaline. The human body operates optimally at a pH that varies from 6.8 to 7.5, depending on the time of day: pH tends to peak at 6 o'clock in the evening, and at noon, with the lowest point coming at 6 o'clock in the morning. These readings represent homeostasis, or balance. This indicates that all the cells in the body are alkaline in nature. When the pH is operating within these normal parameters, cells can take up nutrients as and when needed, depending only on availability, and can discharge wastes efficiently.

However, when vinegar enters our body, it creates a slightly acidic environment. That is, it promotes an acid state in our body fluids. Under this condition, absorption of nutrients, especially those which are dependant on the pH balance for their absorption, is affected. Vitamin B3 and calcium are examples of these nutrients. Since Vitamin B3 is not effectively absorbed by the body, the immune system function is hampered leading to infections. In addition to this, a host of other problems arise due to the acidic nature of the cells coupled with lack of absorption of Vitamin B3. However, these are all theoretical assumptions and not based on any scientific evidences.
