Lowering cholesterol is possible with nicotinic acid. Whereas niacinamide cannot lower cholesterol but help treat skin conditions like psoriasis. Find out more on the health benefits of niacin below:

Avoid alcohol, hot drinks, or spicy foods when it is time to take Niacin Flush Free (inositol niacinate). These are not all of the side effects that may occur. If you have questions about side effects, call your doctor. Call your doctor for medical For specific health concerns, some people intentionally take higher doses of niacin, which is also referred to as a niacin flush because they are basically flushing their bodies with niacin. That’s the type of niacin flush I’m focusing on here. Is a niacin flush good for you? Research has shown that it can helpful for certain people. To put that in perspective, the recommended daily intake for most men and women is 14–16 mg per day ( 9, 10). Avoid hot showers: Taking a hot shower or bath immediately after taking niacin only increases the effects of a niacin flush. The hot water also causes the vessels in your skin to dilate.It also takes high doses of niacin, typically 1,500 mg or greater, to achieve blood fat level improvements, which increases the risk of experiencing unpleasant or potentially harmful side effects ( 6).

Try a different formula. Roughly 50% of people taking immediate-release niacin experience flushing, but extended-release niacin is less likely to cause it. And even when it does, symptoms are less severe and don’t last as long (1, 4, 11). However, extended-release forms may carry a greater risk of liver damage. What does niacin do? Like the other B vitamin, niacin or B3 helps our bodies convert the food we eat into usable fuel. More specifically, niacin also helps the body to produce key sex hormones as well as stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body. Niacin benefits also include the vitamin’s ability to decrease inflammation and boost blood circulation. ( 4) This is not a list of all drugs or health problems that interact with Niacin Flush Free (inositol niacinate). To attain the health benefits niacin can provide, it is best to maximize your intake through daily supplements. If a person is vegetarian or vegan, they may find it challenging to obtain niacin through natural food sources. Most food sources include meat and dairy produce. Thus, supplements can help increase daily intake.Ease into it. Some experts recommend starting with a smaller dose like 500 mg and then increasing to 1,000 mg gradually over the course of 2 months, before finally increasing to 2,000 mg. This strategy could bypass flush entirely ( 5). If you are allergic to Niacin Flush Free ( inositol niacinate); any part of Niacin Flush Free (inositol niacinate); or any other drugs, foods, or substances. Tell your doctor about the allergy and So what is a niacin flush exactly? Let’s take a look at what it is, along with the possible benefits and serious risks of a niacin flush. Niacin is a B3 vitamin, which is an essential vitamin for healthy bodily functioning. Without vitamin B3, the body can be at risk of heart conditions, poor cholesterol levels, bad skin health, and cognitive function. A niacin deficiency can lead to medical conditions, such as pellagra.

Niacin supplements can interact with medical conditions and drugs. This could lead to poor health and worsen conditions. Anyone with the following issues should take extra precaution before taking niacin: The key role of niacin in your body is to synthesize the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), which are involved in over 400 biochemical reactions in your body — mainly related to obtaining energy from the food you eat ( 1). A niacin flush can be a temporary side effect of taking niacin; it’s also a protocol used by some physicians to lower lipid profiles and boost heart health. For these reasons, niacin is not a primary treatment for high cholesterol. It’s primarily used to help improve blood fat levels in people who cannot tolerate statin drugs ( 5, 7). 2. May reduce blood pressureTryptophan is another food source of niacin because this amino acid—when present in amounts beyond that required for protein synthesis—can be converted to NAD, mainly in the liver [ 3, 5]. The most commonly used estimate of efficiency for tryptophan conversion to NAD is 1:60 (i.e., 1 mg niacin [NAD] from 60 mg tryptophan). Turkey is an example of a food high in tryptophan; a 3-oz portion of turkey breast meat provides about 180 mg tryptophan, which could be equivalent to 3 mg niacin [ 9]. However, the efficiency of the conversion of tryptophan to NAD varies considerably in different people [ 3]. Rosenson RS. Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol lowering with drugs other than statins and PCSK9 inhibitors. Accessed March 1, 2022.

Other medications, including some antidepressants and hormone replacement therapies (HRTs), can also trigger flush ( 1). SUMMARY In their guidelines for lowering blood cholesterol levels, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association advise that nonstatin therapies, compared with or in addition to statin therapy, do not provide atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk-reduction benefits that outweigh the potential harms of their adverse effects [ 29]. When discussing the use of nicotinic acid supplements to reduce the risk of hyperlipidemia (for example, in patients unable to tolerate statin medications), the two professional societies recommend that patients take 500 mg/day extended-release nicotinic acid supplements and increase the dose to a maximum of 2,000 mg/day over 4 to 8 weeks or take 100 mg immediate-release nicotinic acid three times a day and increase the dose to 3,000 mg/day divided into two or three doses. (Their joint statement about monitoring supplement users who take niacin to reduce hyperlipidemia risk for adverse effects is described in the Health Risks from Excessive Niacin section below.) In their 2018 report, these two professional societies stated what although niacin may be useful in some cases of severe hypertriglyceridemia, it has only mild LDL-lowering effects. The societies therefore do not recommend using it as an add-on drug to statin therapy [ 35]. It can be difficult to overdose on niacin containing foods. Yet, it is possible to exceed the daily dosage requirements when taking the supplement form. The maximum dosage limit is 1000mg unless your doctor instructs you to increase your intake. If you have any of these health problems: Bleeding problems, liver problems or rise in liver enzymes, or ulcer disease.

People only experience these positive effects on blood fats when they take therapeutic doses of niacin in the range of 1,000–2,000 mg per day ( 5). There are eight essential B vitamins, and Niacin is one of them. Niacin is a B3 vitamin, which is a water-soluble vitamin. If it is safe for you to take niacin, ensure you follow the safe dosage requirements to combat potential side effects. Risks. Niacin does have risks. It can cause liver problems, stomach ulcers, changes to glucose levels, muscle damage, low blood pressure, heart rhythm changes, and other issues. People with any health condition including liver or kidney disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or cardiovascular problems need to talk to a doctor before using niacin supplements. Do not treat high cholesterol on your own with over-the-counter niacin supplements.
