"I like this because its simple with no added weirdness. Be careful though as you should not begin taking niacin by takin 1000mg, you should work up unless you want to flush really bad which is quite unpleasant. These are capsules so you can't cut them so start with a smaller dose and work up."
"I had a hard time finding these in the store but when I did I almost fainted at the price. Took a look online and found Vitacost. Not only did I find exactly what I was looking for, I bought 2 bottles. With shipping it was less than half the amount in the store. Great find!!"
"This niacin is excellent. I always remove the gel capsules and take the powder in water. The gel capsules open easily and the niacin is effective. It is a bit on the pricey side, more expensive than other products but I feel in general it is worth the additional cost."
"I trust the brand from experience. Since reading lots of stuff saying no-flush is much less effective, bought these. Strong flush at first. Take one a day after dinner. As long as I don't skip more than a day, flushing diiminishes and duration shortens. Some days now I don't feel it at all. I think the flushing is manageable. I just need more experience."
"I can't really comment on the quality as those reviews tend to be very subjective, but I can say that the dosage really packs a wallop. If you react like me you will not be able to go out in public for several hours after taking one of these. You will be freakishly red and flushed. I'm still taking mine, but I am very conscience of when I take them."
"I take 3000 mg of Niacin daily and believe me this product is a huge improvment over 30 smaller tablets! I've been taking it for several years and found it to be consistantly high quality - I recommend it highly."
"From what I hear the regular flushing kind of niacin is better than the slow release variety as the slow release is harder on the liver. I enjoy the flush. It makes me feel like I've just had a good exercise workout."
"I bought this after reading all the reviews. It seems that more doctors are recommending this product. I understand flushing, but I became miserable with it. I felt like I had needles sticking my skin all over."
"My doctor specifically told me to buy Twin Lab's Niacin because of the quality. I have to take 3,000mg. a day because I have a high Lp(a) count. I'm so glad Twin Lab sells a 1,000 mg. Niacin and that Vitacost offers such a great price on it. I was paying more for just 500 mg. of other brands. You just can't beat the quality and price of this product."
