"This form of B3 is the "real" Niacin which means you can expect to get a flush. This feeling of being hot only last about 20 minutes. The benefits of real Niacin outweigh the flush. When taking Niacin it is helpful to also take Vitamin C. When taking 500mg of Niacin trying taking 1000 mg Vitamin C."
"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."
