About The Niacin Flush

Energy Caps uses niacin, the more biologically active form of Vitamin B-3 rather than the less-active form, niacinamide. One of niacin's most beneficial nutritional effects is an enhanced blood supply to the skin (as well as to the internal organs and glands). This is called the "niacin skin flush". The pink-to-red itchy skin flush indicates increased blood flow without additional work by the heart. This in turn indicates increased delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells as well as increased waste removal from the cells. This is a very desirable nutritional effect, but it can be disconcerting.

It is usually characterized by a warm transient reddening of the skin that generally lasts about 30 minutes, but may last up to two hours or more (rare). The flush may bring some itching and may be followed by a slight passing chill. Quite often, after a few days of regular supplementation, the flush may diminish. Some people however, continue to flush regularly.

Avoiding The Niacin Flush

The most effective way to avoid a niacin flush when taking Energy Caps is to take only one at a time. Generally only about 1 in 50 people will flush with the amount of two-stage-release niacin in Energy Caps.

Occasional Side Effects Of Higher Niacin Intakes

A very few people may also experience a mild, transient headache or a slight upset stomach for a few minutes on beginning niacin supplementation. These effects usually no longer occur after a day or two. Also, about one person in a thousand may experience a mild rash (which may last from an hour up to a month) or feel sluggish rather than invigorated when taking Vitamin B3 as niacin (the sluggishness may last about four hours). These people should take a supplement that contains niacinamide rather that niacin.

We Recommend Careful Use Of Niacin For Those Seeking
More Mental Clarity And Better Memory

Obviously we recommend Energy Caps with 50 mg of niacin, both for its invigorating nutritional effect and for the amount it may help mental function at 50 mg. per capsule, but we also want people to:
  1. Recognize the possibility of a niacin skin flush.
  2. Know that it has no detrimental effect on healthy body chemistry.
  3. Then decide whether to try niacin or not.
We Feel Fast-Release Niacin Is Best

We caution niacin users that slow-release and time-released niacin may overwork liver enzyme systems, and therefore we recommend and use fast-release niacin.
