As per dr. orders, my husband has to take 1500 mg. of niacin nightly. Because of rising costs, we decided to discontinue the prescription niacin and purchase the niacin over the counter as recommended by the pharmacist. The dr. really frowned on this choice and then recommended that hubby take cholesteral-reducing man-made medication. Not wanting to risk the side-effects of those type of drugs, we decided to purchase the NOW Niacin as I was familiar with the excellent quality of their products. We proved the dr. wrong when hubby's cholesteral tests came back and his levels had improved while on the NOW niacin. I firmly believe this product is much more beneficial than any prescription medication to reduce cholesteral levels--at least it has with my husband. And we may have converted the doctor to take a second look at "natural" supplements! A great product and even greater value for your money!
I started using niacin after watching a documentary about the treatment of depression in orthomolecular medicine. This seems to be very efficient and I can definitely feel a difference. There is still a flushing effect but it is not so unpleasant and it does not last long. To me, it is a minor side-effect compared to the benefits this product brings. I chose this form of niacin instead of niacinamide because niaciamide is reputed to be not as efficient and to cause liver damage. I will definitely recommend niacin!

Necessary, if you want to stay in a good mood or lower your cholesterol level.

I've tried low-flushing niacin before, but this is true to it's product claim. I worked my way up to an entire tablet at once, but even on my first few doses, I didn't have the flushing-red that is typical with niacin. It's important to keep the integrity of niacin, and not remove the flushing-causing elements, as that is part of the benefit.
Thanks iherb for your great site service and unbeatable prices. Apparently, Niacin gives me hot flashes and itching

I'm an overseas customer, amazed at iherb's great level of service.So much information, so many great choices. And this awesome customer reviews. Shipping was fast and inexpensive. Got my order in a very timely manner. As for this product, I'm sure it is of good quality. but it does give me a rash itchiness and hot flashes or 1 long very warm flushing feeling. Will try to cut the dosage to half a tablet. I've already made my 2nd purchase from iherb and the 3rd is on its way.
Helps with over methylation

Use this as needed when following methylation protocol, have a tendency to over-methylate and this helps very quickly. I break off only about 1/4 tablet and that does the trick.
