This is a great way to start of with a flushing form of niacin. Split the tablets to begin with and work your way up to a whole. I love these tablets, great just before bed to ensure sleep and really great for the problem I have in waking up in the middle of the night and not getting back to sleep. I just have one of these and I'm back asleep in no time. Niacin is also great for mood disorders and cholesterol...do some research and you'll be amazed that this nutrient isn't more widely taken. I found this brand to have the strongest flush for its strength which I believe is an indication of a quality niacin supplement. Please click 'yes' if you found this helpful and click my NaturalMum link above for more reviews on natural beauty products, vitamins and supplements.
Seems to be a time release and does not work as well as Solgar 250mg or Twinlabs 500mg. I took 3-5 of these tablets and hardly get any flushing whereas I always get flushing with the other products.
Niacin good for your mood

After reading about niacin and its impact on arthritis, mental health issues etc. (See Andrew Saul - niacin), we are finding some wonderful improvements in our health and mood since starting to take megadoses of niacin. Since niacin will help with circulation you should expect to feel a flushing hot sensation that does not last for very long (up to 45 minutes) and this may be accompanied by itchy skin during the flush.

I take i for better cholesterol ratios and it really works. Between 100-300 mg my HDL increased by 10-12%, ldl went down by 5%. Between 500-800 HDL increased by 22% and ldl went down by 21%. ApoB down by 14% All this in 5 months.
Less of a tingle

I take extra niacin whlle I'm addressing an adrenal fatigue problem. I did run out for a while, and within a couple of days was suffering from insomnia again. Turns out that a niacin deficiency can cause insomnia! Go figure! Anyways, I used to get another Nature's Plus Niacin, but decided to try this as its better value for money. Initially I wasn't sure if it was working, until I had my supplements on an empty stomach, and sure enough there was the tell-tale red flush tingle in my face. Feels weird but its a comfort to know its working. It is slightly less tingly than the previous brand though. Not sure if that's any indication of strength or effectiveness. But I'll be sticking with this one anyway. I'm taking half a day, to top up my one-a-day B-complex capsule.
Not potent enough.

Had to take many tablets before a flush was felt. Will try capsules next time.

I bought this to use as a 'methyl mop' when using methylfolate. unfortunately for me it seems that niacin burns my stomach. even small doses are intolerable and this product doesn't give ways to control amounts. it also seems very hard to find apprpopriate small doses for my purpose. it seems some of us have this difficulty so it is worth mentioning.
