Beware...if you have not used niacin before this is likely to give you a really hot flush as this is a large dose. I would suggest you start at a lower dose (like 100mg or less) and work your way up to this strength. A niacin flush can be unpleasant if you are not expecting it but once you are used to it, it's quite pleasant and relaxing. I have found niacin to be a saviour for my mood and especially for difficulty going to and staying asleep. I have some niacin before bed and fall asleep quickly - something I've never been able to do!

This is a real quality niacin. The capsules are easy to swallow. My husband and I worked ourselves up to 500mg at a time. Occasionally I still experience a brief flashing but it does not bother me. Do remember to take on a full stomach. For information on proper niacin dosing and niacin saturation visit Dr. Andrew Saul's website at doctoryourself.com

even taking it direct after eating it gave me a strong flush. I felt itchy and shivery, like I had flu, and then really sleepy. Definitely knocks you out for sleep although you do wake up in the middle of the night. Not sure what to make of it but obviously doing something!
LIPIDS VERY SATISFACTORY

I take 1 twice daily. My HDL is high, my triglycerides are low and my LDL is lower but still above the "recommended " level. I feel sure if I took a higher dose my LDL would fall further. I don't bother because sometimes I still get flushes.I've been taking for a few years now.

My GP tried to put me on statins for high cholesterol about 2 yrs ago and after researching the topic I decided I would stick to the 'gold-standard' of lipid control Nicotinic acid. I have lowered the bad and raised my good cholesterol significantly, which statins alone cannot do. Also B3 has other benefits on the blood vessels and circulation. Side effects occur only after the first dose a.m which I take in bed and the next dose has no side effects. Also as an exercise mimetic Niacin has contributed to significant weight loss and greater energy levels.It should be taken in conjunction with the whole B vitamin family for best results. Ofcourse everyone should discuss with their doctor prior to self-prescribing.
