Here’s a great question from one of our Members about niacin.
We had my husbands hair analysis done by you and loved it.
We just read the article you posted from NBC news about
when to take blood pressure medicine. Our question for you is what you referred to in your notice. You indicated that you take B3 niacin as your blood pressure medicine.
Can you tell us, or can you post on facebook, how it works and how much you should or should not take? We hear that you have to really be careful about how much you take.
Thanks a bunch.
Thank you for the kind note.
How To Take Niacin
Supplement five (5) to seven (7) times a week with extra B3 (niacin) until you flush shortly after taking (individual doses will vary).
Begin taking 50-100 mg. of niacin on a slightly full stomach (with a banana or a light snack). Increase by 50-100 mg. daily until a flush occurs within 15 to 20 minutes.
Do not panic if you turn red and your heart beats rapidly. This is a sign that your blood is cleansing, and toxins are being removed.
It is recommended to take niacin before working out, a hot bath or shower, during a sauna or steam bath, or at a time when your pores are open, and your heart rate is naturally elevated. Children can take low doses of niacin (50 mg maximum) before a warm bath, before playtime, or before sleeping.
If you have more toxins than niacin, you may not feel a flush, but if you have more niacin present in the blood as opposed to toxins, you will feel a flush.
Here is an important key to taking pure niacin.
Do NOT use time released or flush free niacin. This is an unnatural form of niacin and can stress the liver. It is preferred to use pure niacin that will activate immediately so you will know the present degree of toxicity.
NOTE: Be cautious when taking more than 50 mg. of niacin if you are taking blood thinners or any blood pressure medications.
If on medications, you may want to inform your medical doctor to let them know that you are taking a niacin supplement. Don’t be surprised if your medical advisor is not familiar with niacin or the detoxification process, as most AMA medical schools do not recognize the importance of nutrition.
This is my recommended brand: Carlson® pure B3, and NEVER use flush-free forms of niacin, and again, which are toxic to your liver. And remember that you can’t tell how much your body requires if you don’t flush.
