This is a great product to begin Niacin supplementation. Trust me when I say you do NOT want to be taking 500mg Niacin the very first time! I started with just half a pill (50mg) and barely felt any flushing. One school of thought suggests gradually increasing the dosage, e.g. by 25mg per day, until you reach your daily desired therapeutic amount. I personally increased the dosage a lot faster but to each their own.
Unlike the Natural Factors Vitamin B3 500mg, this product does NOT contain croscarmellose sodium. Small amounts of this drug delivery additive shouldn't be harmful but I'd rather not ingest any of it.
In terms of safety, immediate release Niacin (nicotinic acid) like this product does not cause liver damage to some over the long term like its timed or slow release equivalents.
I take this for the flush, and at this potency, it is relatively mild for me and doesn't last that long. Good price and very fast delivery. Product arrived in perfect condition. Thanks!
I have started my second bottle of this B3 and increasing it to 2 tablets and then 2 1/2 tablets twice per day. I am going to purchase the 500 mg tablet from you and take a half tablet of it twice a day with the ultimate goal of taking 500 mgs x 2 per day. My doctor actually did not want me to continue Lipitor or other statins and approved my taking niacin instead.
The following information is from a reliable source and part of my research into skin cancer.
Vitamin B3 - or Nicotinamide (Wikipedia has definition of this) two 500 mg vitamin B3 pills/day for a year caused 23% less likely to have another cancer diagnosed. Also reduced by 20% the numbers of pre-cancerous lesions called actinic keratosis.
Results were seen within 3 months, but if it stopped, the protection vaporized.
Thought is that Nicotinamide works by helping repair DNA damage caused by excessive UV exposure and by bolstering the immune system.
These tablets are only 100 mg, but I'm easily susceptible to supplements at a lower dosage, perhaps because I avoid taking medication unless absolutely necessary. So I'm going to give this a try. Plus Vitamins B are water soluble and not retained in the body, so not a dangerous consequence. I have only marked the value as being happy with it as I haven't tried it yet. But it's from Natural Factors and they are an excellent supplier.
I would like to have a choice of a 50 mg capsule rather than a 100 mg. As splitting the 100mg tab is messy and inconvenient to get a daily amount more to what I need for Niacin. I find niacin in a low doses hard to find in the market place and buying it online is convenient with fast delivery. I am happy to see the importance of getting the product to the customer as soon as possible esp. in winter when I can't easily get out to the stores some days.
