Niacin is an organic compound commonly referred to as Vitamin B3.
Niacin is an excellent supplement for vegetarians, vegans and people who frequently consume alcohol. This is because diets that are low on meat are also low on Niacin, since some of the largest stores come from tryptophan.

NIACIN SIDE EFFECTS
Niacin has potential to increase blood flow, which is why it has potential to act as a flushing agent to dispel toxins from the body. However, this may result in a few side effects such as redness, itchiness, headache and possible low blood pressure. In addition, those who are taking any sort of medication designed to thin or thicken the blood should not take this without consulting a doctor first, as it may alter the effects of the medication.
Taking more than the recommended amount of Niacin has potential to result in very serious side effects such as liver damage and ulcers. It may also cause various stomach pains and gastrointestinal problems that will stop if discontinued. Still, those that have had a history of liver issues or any kind of stomach ulcer problems are cautioned away from taking this supplement.
In addition, any woman who is nursing or pregnant and any person that has asthma, glaucoma, gout or gallbladder problems should not take this product without talking to a health professional. Taking more than 3 grams per day of this supplement has potential to potentially cause the body to fail at glucose absorption, an essential process involved in creating energy for the body.
Niacin should never be taken in servings exceeding 500mg per day, as this will be just about the maximum level of “flushing” that the body has potential to take. Overdose has potential be extremely dangerous and even fatal. Starting off with a smaller amount of Niacin and working up if the desired effects do not occur is strongly recommended. People who experience pain from flushing may take aspirin about 30 minutes before beginning their Niacin intake.
This product dissolves more easily in warm water and frequent shaking/stirring. It may have a slightly bitter or sour taste; this is a natural component of Niacin. This product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to preserve effectiveness and potency.
