Carlson Niacin-Time is the best Niacin product for control of Cholesterol

Posted by Reviewer2412809 on Sep 23, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I've been using this brand of timed released Niacin for over 20 years and, during that time, compared it with other brands as well. This one has kept my Cholesterol levels down without Niacin flush. I have not had any success with any other brands. AND, by going this route, I've been able to avoid statins with all of their side effects. The pill alone, however, is not enough. Also needed is oat BRAN and a reduction of saturated fats. The definitive book on this is 'The Eight Week Cholesterol Cure'. Caution! Not everyone can handle high doses of Niacin -- even when time released. For some, it is toxic. A liver test is essential before taking high doses of Niacin.

Do NOT expect a niacin product to be flush-free unless it specifically labeled FLUSH FREE!

Posted by 5150268586062007363 on Dec 12, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Although I've been taking niacin (NOT flush-free) for many years, this is the first time I've used this brand. And I am entirely satisfied with it. As such, I do not hesitate to recommend it. However, there seems to be some confusion about time-release niacin that I will try to clear up here. Flush-free niacin is a form of nicotinic acid also known as inositol hexaniacinate. Flush-free niacin gets its name from its ability to alleviate side effects like flushing that are seen with other forms of niacin. Unfortunately, there really isn’t a lot known about flush-free niacin, and researchers are finding that its active form may not even enter the blood. Therefore, it is UNLIKELY that flush-free niacin lowers cholesterol. The purpose of making niacin that is time-released is to significantly increase its effectiveness. Why does this happen? Well, niacin, like all the B vitamins and vitamin C are water soluable nutrients. When taken in the form of a supplement, most of these highly concentrated forms will pass right through us, and out with our urine. By prolonging the release of such nutrient supplements, the benefits are stretched over a greater period of time. While this is a very fine product, its labeling, which refers to its ability to reduce or even eliminate the flush, unfortunately contributes to the confusion. Because of this, I contacted the company and urged the folks there to remove this claim, or at the very least, note on the label that prolonging the niacin's release MIGHT reduce flushing, but is NOT the main purpose of time-releasing niacin. Regarding actual 'flush-free' niacin, there is something you all should know. Products that are simply labeled as "niacin" or "time-release niacin" contain nicotinic acid. This is the substance that, at doses higher than those needed for its vitamin effect, has been shown to have benefit in people with high cholesterol. Nicotinic acid is known to lower two types of "bad" cholesterol (LDL and VLDL) as well as increase levels of "good" cholesterol (HDL). In fact, it is able to increase HDL more than any other medication. Products labelled as "no-flush" niacin generally contain NO nicotinic acid, . The main component in these products is inositol hexanicotinate (a different form of vitamin B3. While inositol hexanicotinate works as other B vitamins work to promote energy metabolism and nervous system health, it has NOT been shown to have any effect on cholesterol levels. This product does not cause flushing because it does not work the same way as niacin. Unfortunately, if you want the cholesterol health benefits of niacin, a "no-flush" option does not exist. But there are some ways that you can prevent or minimize the flushing effects. Taking a dose of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) 30 minutes before your niacin dose can minimize flushing. Flushing may also be reduced if niacin is taken after meals. Avoid hot drinks or alcohol before taking niacin, as this can add to the flushing. If you take niacin And you understand my long-winded explanation, then by all means try this product. It is excellent. As for iHerb's level of service, nobody could ask for more. It's superb.

Finally a niacin that is easier to take.

Posted by Reviewer2593305 on Nov 06, 2012 | Verified Purchase

After trying prescription niacin that had horrible side effects and then some otc brands I find Carlson Labs, Niacin-Time to be workable. The tablet is easy to swallow and the side effects are none to minor. Just be very careful NOT to eat or drink chocolate around the same time you take the niacin or it will bite you. Still the side effect isn't as bad ad the prescription brand.
