Great quality but be prepared to flush
Posted by NaturalMum on May 16, 2013
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!

The modern world needs niacin.

From deep depression to feeling normal again, within a week. Yes this product will give you a flush. Yes that is normal. Yes, it t can be unpleasant. But the flush is also beneficial, is part of a healing process, and is by far, not the worst thing in the world. It will also disappear after about a week of use. I have been using Now Foods Niacin for over 5 months now (daily). It is a quality product, and works well. See information from Dr Andrew Saul & Dr Abram Hoffer for dosage information. All mental illness & brain biochemical problems should be dosed with niacin. Also very good for lessening the severity of allergies.

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

This product is fantastic, I've been on niacin I've been on niacin for 7 months, taking 2 pills 3 times a day and I'm getting better and better. I'm used to the flush I don't know why everyone makes such a big deal about it you get use to itand it gives a bit of placebo when you feel it working in your body. I just hope they continue making flush niacin because I love it!

I like this Niacin the flush was great and the high mg content is superior but it has Magnesium Sterate which sucks so I switched to Jarrow.
Do not take on empty stomach!

If you never took the Niacin then take this after a meal to avoid the strong flush reaction!

Work your way up to this dose

Great, but don't try and take this dose straight up. I purchased these for my son to see if they helped his long standing depression. I purchased 100 mg capsules first though and I am really glad I did. My son started on a dose of 100mg and had a flush. I dropped it to 50 mg by opening the capsule and taking half out. He was fine. Have gradually increased by 50 mg a night to work his way up to the 500mg capsule. He has experienced flushes along the way, but we have taken it slowly and simply repeated the same dose rather than increasing it until he tolerated it without a flush. I would hate to see how bad the flush might be if he had taken 500mg straight up and we certainly didn't want him to have a negative experience with this. He is now taking 800mg and beginning to look a lot less depressed. He is starting to smile, is engaging far more socially and can see the funny side of life. Nothing else has worked for him so for us Niacin is a miracle. It's very economical and highly effective. If he misses a couple of nights he is back to his depressed self so making sure we always have a spare bottle. Very very happy. Thank you Now Foods.

Dear IHerb, I am very happy to say because of your service of providing Now Niacin and Dr Abram Hoffers youtube videos on how to heal Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar, depression, alcohol abuse etc on the net I am almost healed of Schizophrenia! I am down to under half a tablet of the doctors prescription drug and taking 2 tablets of Niacin 3 times a day. I feel great, can think clearly, working harder like I did in my 20s before I got sick and very happy. Thanks be to my Mum for always believing in Natural Medicine, we call it Gods medicine. That unlike doctors drugs does NOT harm us. Thanks be to Bill Pinto for telling us about IHerb. Praise be to God for everything, He and His Son Jesus are so faithful and so much LOVE! I wish I had known about Niacin 20 years ago then I would not have lost 10 years of my life being in and out of hospital- what a waste of time that was. Soon I will be off the doctors drug completely. Many thanks IHerb, you are efficient, professional, truly a great company . God bless you all, Gabriella Napoli PS I now have family members and friends taking Niacin through IHerb and its a joy to hear their results.
