Vitacost Niacin (Vitamin B-3) -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Get 500 mg of niacin—an essential B vitamin—in an easy-to-take single-capsule serving. What is niacin?  . Niacin or vitamin B3 (also known as nicotinic acid) is one of eight vitamins that make up the B-complex. It’s found in many foods including meat fish eggs green vegetables and cereal grains. It’s also synthesized in the body from tryptophan an amino acid found in many protein-rich foods. As a water-soluble vitamin niacin is not stored in the body and must be continually replaced through diet.  . Why choose Vitacost Niacin? Supplies 500 mg of niacin per single-capsule serving. Contains 100 servings per bottle. Gluten free. Great value!  . About Vitacost. Vitacost nutritional products are manufactured to high standards of quality efficacy and safety.

Full Flushing
 August 15, 2013
"The first night I took this product I did not know exactly what a flush would be like. I figured my face would be red, but after a few minutes I discovered what was meant by "full flushing". I would recommend that before you take the product, to research and watch a video of a flushing so you know what may happen. I only experienced this a couple times and with daily use it seems to lessen. If your healthcare provider has recommended you take niacin, be sure to inquire if flushing or non flushing is recommended for your particular health concerns."

"My husband takes it and it does give a hot flush for a couple of hours at first. But it goes away. Take it at bedtime, as he does and it is much better, but it does make him go to urinal more.
The fast acting, flush free was directly told to him to NOT use."

too potent

"This could have been my fault, because I chose this dose. I threw the bottle away, it was way to strong. I was flushed for more than 3 hours after taking a single pill."
