Niacin is a high potential food. I am aware that it will have the side effect of flushing. I started taking with 250mg twice a day then changed to 500mg after 2 days. At first I didn't feel the side effect. It was not obvious until I took the 500mg. I could feel the flush and itch all over my face and on both my hands turning into reddish. The effect took place after 3-4 hours after taking it. Now my body seems to adjust to it well and the side effects reduce. Will take it for two months to see if it helps to reduce my cholesterol. The item was well packed and quality is good. Niacin will give me the vitamin B3 which is sufficient for my diet purpose.
Quality of NOW Brands is excellent.
The ingredients are made from Vitamin B3 - Niacin.
The dose is 500 mg of Vit B3 (niacin).

NOW vitamins are a trusted name, I've used some of them for years. I have my own routine for trying out each new vitamin I take, I use the new vitamin for a couple months, monitor how i feel, stop using the new vitamin and then monitor again how i feel, If i feel better while taking the vitamin, i then continue taking it again, if no change is noticed i generally stop using it, possibly I'm getting all i need of that particular vitamin in my diet. This NOW Niacin, for me, has the "no flush" effect on me. The quality of the NOW vitamin is tops, always the same reliable product as the last bottle: pure vitamins, no fillers, just vitamin.
definitely my favorite NIACIN 500. it will take you a few days to build tolerance becaus of tihg potency and after that there will be no flush which in my case lasted the first four days and very short.
does not cause worsening of pimples as in the case of some other brands, my mood and energy levels and my cholesterol have drastically improved
for which its efficasy is known. big size, low price. buy it.
For cholesterol. I take 1/2 a tablet in the morning and a whole one in the evening. It has helped me raise my HDL and lower my LDL. Just a warning that all niacin can cause flushing. It is more effective than the non-flushing type. I've gotten used to it. Be aware that it has been known to raise blood sugar.
Its one of the best things that u could do to start taking this B3 niacin, it has a lot of benefits for your health,
I just started 2 weeks ago
First week was 500mg x1 per day,
Second week I increased the dose to 500mg x 2
I’m feeling so good, fresh, happy, socially and having positive thinking even more focused than before
On the other side you will feel flushing after 2-3 hours but its nice flushing and gives more satisfaction after finish
My plan to increase the dose to 2,000mg per day for one week only then back to 1,000mg then 500mg
Highly recommended ..

Many thanks ❤️
I suffered from depression/ruminations for many years. The symptoms worsened when I ate little to no animal products for a decade. Some online lectures in nutritional science led me to Niacin. In a month, I cautiously worked my way up from 500 mg, to 1,000 mg, to 1,500 mg. I felt an increasingly healthy sense of peace and calm every time. But the “Niacin flush” (harmless itchiness/redness) was uncomfortable. I've since switched to Niacinamide. However, I still take one Niacin at midnight every day. My rating: Great! (if you can handle the Niacin flush)
I just started using this product three weeks ago and taking two tablets With a medium size meal, a couple of hours later I get the great pink skin flush that I’ve been waiting for. Fourty minutes later everything is back to normal, but the effect of that flush took me from 60 years old to age eleven when just the thought of a pretty girl used to excite me for half an hour. Believe it or not the Flush is better than taking a viagra tablet among many other benefits. Also, I feel great as there is no more pain after work out. I’ve researched this vitamin and I feel great about it’s heeling powers. I introduced my family to the Magical heeling power of Niacin.
this makes me flush quite strongly on a single dose. I like the flush though as I know it's working, blood circulating! I've been taking it for my skin along with collagen, noticed a surprising difference in my skins firmness! This stuff has alot if health benefits!
The flush from this product is amazing, totally red, itchy and hot (then cold and goose-bumpy when the flush subsides). I LOVE it for micro-vessel dilation and flush.
I would say that this product isn't for those faint of heart, as the effect can be intense, especially if a build up of histamines!
Such a great internal beauty supplement
