Better than prescription niacin!
Better than prescription niacin!
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!

Hard on the stomach

I took 1/2 tabs for a while with no flush (had previously been on 100g) so I took a whole one. WELL sustained release seems to mean delayed release. 2 hrs later I was red from head to foot, itchy and burning up to the point where I could not stand it anymore and ran around throwing clothes off! Thank god I was at home, haha 😂. I was naked for about 2 hrs before I t disapated. But the reason I have stoped taking them is they sit in my stomach like a rock and make me barb no end, also gave me heartburn at night. These are symptoms I don't normally suffer from so bye bye slow release. I'm going back to normal niacin.
I like the flush

I'm giving this 4 stars because they made his time release. I personally like the niacin flush it lets me know that it is powerful and working. Time release I will never buy again because after you take it it just seems like it is not real niacin or it seems like it's not working

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