Didn't honor the "no flush" for me ;-(

    Comments about Natrol Niacin TR Time Release, 500mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

    Ii was counting on the advertising that this was "no flush" - but alas, I ended up trying it in varying amounts and ways (dividing it in 2 to take over time, took morning and night rather than just morning, broke it up into pieces and took over 1 hr's time) - So I threw them away -- The ONLY TR Niacin that I have found that offers "no flush" truly is Ortho Molecular Products.

      My Cardiologist suggested taking Niacin and ramping slowly to 2000 mg per day for high Triglycerides and Cholesterol with Low HDL. In less than 6 months I saw incredible improvement!
      Triglycerides are down from 581 to 295! HDL is up from 37 to 49! I have never seen such results. He didn't tell me which form of Niacin but my research said that(B3) From Inositol Nicotinate was my best choice. I worked up to 2 in AM and 2 in PM.

      Comments about Natrol Niacin TR Time Release, 500mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

      On physician's advice, I've been taking 1500-2000mg a day of niacin for nearly 15 years to help keep blood lipids normal and avoid taking statin drugs--which I had a very bad reaction to (as do many women). Niacin that is NOT in a non-flush or time-release form causes horrible flushing and itching that lasts an hour or so: if someone tells you your body will adjust to that, don't believe it!NATROL has a good reputation for quality and purity, and the pricing is reasonable. Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin, so what your body doesn't use, leaves in urine.

      An under-used lipid-lowerering agent

        Comments about Natrol Niacin TR Time Release, 500mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

        Recently, slow-release niacin, a non-prescription nutritional supplement, was shown to be superior to Zetia (ezetimibe), a very expensive prescription drug, at lowering fasting serum lipid levels in a head-to-head randomized clinical trial. At a fraction of the price, that's huge. Plus niacin is one of the few lipid-lowering agents capable of reducing high triglyceride levels.

        But there's a problem: for nutritional supplements, there is no FDA oversight. No official agency is verifying safety, efficacy, or truth in labeling. There is no guarantee that the pills you take really do contain the stated dose of the stated ingredient. So one has to "trust" large companies (NOT!) or look for word-of-mouth recommendations from other who have tried the product. That's why I am writing: this product really works. It does not cause severe flushing, like rapid-release niacin preps do (basically the only common side-effect of niacin supplementation). And it has proven to be very effective at lowering my own personal serum lipids. Plus, it's offered here at a VERY reasonable price. It's what I use. I can personally vouch for its safety and effectiveness.
