In addition, cellulose is used as an agent for the prevention of cancer of the gastrointestinal tract. A recent study proves that such action has and vitamin B3.

However, the introduction of their vitamin B3 activated immune mice that allowed them longer and more effective to deal with the pathological agent. Vitamin activated healthy gut bacteria and the body started stronger to resist disease.
Fiber activates the receptor Gpr109a, which affects the activity of macrophages. Immune cells begin to actively fight inflammation. In addition, fiber and vitamin B3 promote the release of cytokines. Data proteins provide quick healing of wounds.
