To make my depression better, I started taking 21st Century 100mg Niacin (I think it is the only low dose Niacin with flush, also it is tablet so I can make it to half), I take it twice a week and increased the dose gradually.
I bought this when I could take 500mg at once, I think my dipression is much better after taking Niacin with flush last 2 months.
WARNING! Recommended to start with 100mg if new to Niacin. Very potent niacin flush. I have only taken up to half a capsule at a time and my hands an face will radiate quite a bit. It is easy to open a capsule and take a bit less since 500mg is a lot for me personally. Great value for money.
The first 500 mg capsule I took caused a lot of blushing effect, it took me by surprise, I was unaware that the effect was so strong; but at the same time I felt full of energy. So for the second take I cut the dose in half; the blush effect diminished considerably, it no longer bothered so much and I sit up with energy. I recommend it.
The first time the flush was overwhelming :-o I felt feverish, shaky, really sick. I really needed to rest and it was over after one hour... I now use half a capsule before sleeping. It works good! I feel calmer, sleep well and my blood circulation has improved so much. My chilblains are gone after one week of use. Really miraculous because I already tried so much for this problem of my toes that I have every winter... And now B3 appears to be the solution. I am so happy about that!
My first encounter with the product is not so pleasant as I didn’t know it caused flushing. I was rather shocked after taking as my whole body start to feel hot and bad flushing. It was rather scary as certain parts of my body start to itch as well. After reading the reviews, I realised that it’s because of the dosage I bought so I reduce it to half of 500mg but that is still too much. So I decided to take even lesser than that and I’m feeling fine. I’m happy with the product as it helps me to have been concentration and clear my brain fog.
When i first took it I had an extreme flush reaction… itching, red skin and got really scared, but after googling I realized it was a normal reaction. 🙂 anyway, it is a proof that the product works. To avoid flush effect one should start with a smaller dose and increase gradually since this is 2000% of RDA. The flush effect is gone after using product for some time or it is really minimized even comfortable.
First day I took one and I felt this burning sensation and stomach discomfort. Next day I took 2 pills at one once and I did it feel anything. So it was only the first time for me . I am taking it for my hdl cholesterol . It’s low and I am hoping this supple to helps . Will share after I get the next lap results .
This is it for me.After reading dr. Abram Hofer great book about niacin i started using this supplement twice a day after meals. Was first surprised by the flush but i like it. It helps with my mood, energy. I always had cold feet in the winter, not anymore! I couldn't believe it. The blood flows everywhere much better now. Only downside for me it lowers my blood pressure which i already have low because of ketogenic diet+intermittent fasting. I will keep using it till the rest of my life.
I bought this supplement because I wanted a clearer mind to help with brain fog. So far, so good....I would say it has helped in that area and I also feel more energy. I was starting to have symptoms of chronic fatigue and this has helped me not wake up tired and actually get more things done during the day. I didn't know about dmg and I am glad to have found it.
Have just started using this and LOVE the flush it produces. Be advised: this is NOT a flush-free formula, but those are harsher on your liver anyway and will potentially cause long-term damage. Very good price for this item, and if you don't like to use the capsules, you can break them open very easily to dissolve the inner powder in water or another drink (like orange juice). I sometimes boil water and will use that to dissolve it as it doesn't like to dissolve very easily. If I'm in a hurry, I just pop a capsule or two and let the flush do its work!
