Saw this kid at the gym looking like a lobster so I asked him if he went to the beach...laughs and says no he just took some niacin. Says its a vasodilator, gives me a pill and within 5 minutes I start burning up. Holy shit, I'm feeling like I'm gonna have a heart attack and itching like a crack head. Workout was a bit too uncomfortable to notice an increase in pump...

I'm not the type to take something without reading up on it first but being that its just a b vitamin I said what the hell. So apparently this stuff improves hdl and lowers ldl, helps rid the body of toxins, promotes healthy skin and joint health among other benefits.

There are some formulas that are "flush free" but I'm not sure if some health benefits would be diminished. From my experience I would start off with the lowest dose if you get the regular stuff with the flush cause it can feel quite overwhelming....

It is an allergic reaction. Some people get it and some don't. I take slow niacin every night before I go to bed. I have never had a problem with flushing although my pharmacist warned me that some people just cannot take it.

Most B vitamin complex shite has no niacin, but inositol hexoniconate,not the same thing in practice, but ostensibly they are.

What's the recommended dosage? Why are you taking it? I take it to lower cholesterol.

No particular reason. I just spit which pills I take, such as vitamins, between morning and night. The niacin ended up on the night schedule.

Ya, it's not niacin, it's niacinamide. Niacinamide has no benefits for cholesterol and acts very different then niacin, it has some benzodiazepine receptor activity that's interesting. Some benefits to OA (joints).

No need to drop it though, it's fine and I think niacinamide is better anyway.

Not if you are taking it to keep your cholesterol under control.
