Niacin (also known as vitamin B3) is an organic compound with the formula C6H5NO2 and, one of the essential human nutrients. Not enough niacin in the diet can cause nausea, skin and mouth lesions, anemia, headaches, and tiredness. Niacin is the oldest lipid lowering drug with unique anti-atherosclerotic property.
Chronic Niacin deficiency leads to a disease called pellagra, which is characterized by diarrhea, dermatitis, and dementia, as well as “Casal's necklace” lesions on the lower neck, hyper-pigmentation, thickening of the skin, inflammation of the mouth and tongue, digestive disturbances, amnesia, delirium (and eventually death, if left untreated.) Common psychiatric symptoms of niacin deficiency include irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression.
The lack of niacin may also be observed in pandemic deficiency disease which is caused by a lack of five crucial vitamins: niacin, vitamin C, thiamin, vitamin D and vitamin A, and is usually found in areas of widespread poverty and malnutrition. Niacin has been used for over 50 years to decrease the risk of cardiovascular events, to lower cholesterol levels, and for preventing cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes Niacin is involved in both DNA repair, and the production of steroid hormones in the adrenal gland.
Niacin has been in use, since 1950, for the treatment of accumulated levels of radiation in the human body. The human body, designed to accept (then flush) normal levels of radiation, has been found to "stockpile" radiation, due to the elevated levels of man-made radiation stemming from thousands of nuclear weapon discharge world wide. Regular intake, of even 100 mg Niacin daily, will assist the body to rid itself of this excess radiation.
DIRECTIONS FOR NORMAL USE
Starting dose is one 100 mg tab daily (with food). Niacin will cause a red flush to your skin (akin to typical sunburn), itching and slight burning feeling after 5 to 10 minutes from ingestion. This "flushing" will last from 10 to 30 minutes.
Recommended dosage is 500 mg per day, but NEVER take more than you're used to.
Here is exactly how you progress to 500 mg daily:
Take 100 mg with food (preferably breakfast). Within 5 to 10 minutes, you'll feel the flush/itching coming on. This "flush" effect will last from 5 minutes to 15 minutes, then pass. If it's too strong for you, drink a glass of water to dilute the niacin.
Take your dose of niacin daily until you have no flushing effects for a period of three days running (in a row).
DO NOT VIOLATE THIS RULE.
When three days of no-effect is up, on the fourth day take 200 mg of niacin. Follow the same three-day-rule for the next increase to 300 mg, and so forth until you reach the target dose of 500 mg.
Niacin is niacin. Nothing else will be as medicinal as pure niacin. You will not receive any benefit from "slow release", "no flush", "time release", or ANY other weak and worthless copy of the real thing: NIACIN.
With daily use, Niacin will reduce your cholesterol level, help clean your arterial walls, keep your blood vessels, capillaries and veins clear of buildup, lower your background radiation levels, help improve your general skin tone: the effects on your general health, of a continuous daily intake of Niacin, is wide spread and astounding!
