Niacin, or vitamin B3 as it is also known, is part of the vitamin B complex and is water-soluble. This vitamin is used in at least 40 chemical reactions in the body. Niacin supports the activities of numerous powerful enzymes throughout the body which are needed for the manufacture of the sex hormones and correct adrenal gland function. Niacin (or vitamin B3) is also needed for metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, the correct function of the nervous and digestive systems, and the maintenance of skin health.
Niacin is involved in energy production, and has been studied extensively, showing positive outcomes for a vast array of common health problems. It is fundamental to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and helping to normalise lipid levels. In addition, niacin helps with brain function, providing the energy needed to convert cholesterol into pregnenolone (a hormones that helps support memory among other things). Niacin is also used in the metabolism of tryptophan and serotonin.
This niacin no-flush supplement contains a specific form of niacin, known as inositol hexanicotinate, which provides all the benefits of niacin but without having to endure the usual niacin flush.
The inositol, a pseudovitamin, found within this compound, acts to slow down the absorption of niacin avoiding overtaxing the liver, making it easier on the body, without the flushing reaction seen in regular niacin supplements.
Niacin (as inositol hexanicotinate) 400 mg, Inositol (as inositol hexanicotinate) 100mg.
Other Ingredients: Capsule (gelatin, water), rice powder and magnesium stearate.
Our No-Flush Niacin will not cause the flush that is commonly associated with niacin use. It is derived from the finest Inositol Hexanicotinate available.

Taking a high dosage of a single vitamin B may cause an imbalance between the other vitamins Bs in your system, therefore, you may wish to consider taking a B vitamin complex rather than take each B vitamin separately. A lack of just one single B vitamin can impact overall health as each B vitamin plays a specific role in the body.
Niacin and inositol supplements should not be taken on an empty stomach.
