Product Description

Why choose Niacin by Seeking Health? Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is naturally produced in the body and is found in many of the foods we eat. Niacin supports healthy circulation, healthy cholesterol, healthy skin, and healthy blood sugar levels.*

Key benefits and actions of Niacin by Seeking Health :

  • Mood Support : Niacin by Seeking Health may support normal mood regulation by relieving any symptoms that could be related to a deficiency of this important vitamin.* Furthermore, your body cannot store niacin, so you need adequate intake of this important vitamin every day.*
  • Serotonin : One of the building blocks of serotonin is the amino acid tryptophan, and one of the building blocks of tryptophan is Niacin. Tryptophan also helps the body supply itself with Niacin. If tryptophan is divided between serotonin production and niacin production, serotonin production is likely to be inadequate. Supplemental niacin and tryptophan can be beneficial for elevated moods.*
  • Enhanced Mood : The B vitamin Niacin is important for proper functioning of all cells, including the cells of the brain and nervous system.*
  • Circulation : Niacin promotes good cholesterol HDL or high-density lipoprotein levels.*
  • Detoxification : Niacin has the well-known effect of causing "vasodilation", often called the niacin flush, which is an opening of the small blood vessels, the capillaries, for proper blood flow. These are the blood vessels which are of most value in reaching fatty tissues. In this way the toxins which are stored in these fatty tissues can be removed, into the bloodstream, and processed out of the body.
  • Healthy Skin : Niacin supports healthy skin.* Niacin also helps the skin with moisture retention and aids skin’s elasticity and tone.* You can use supplements but to enhance the benefits of niacin on your skin, eat fish, meats, grains and green vegetables or other foods high in vitamin B3.
  • Osteoarthritis : Niacin has been found to support joint mobility.* Taking vitamin B3 has also shown to support healthy cartilage.*
What makes Niacin by Seeking Health superior to other Niacin supplements on the market? Niacin by Seeking Health provides pure niacin in a sustained-release matrix that releases slowly over several hours. The slow release of Niacin over several hours helps avoid the uncomfortable flushing action of this B-vitamin so that its full of benefits on cholesterol metabolism can obtained. The scored tablet allows for easier dosage adjustment as needed.

  • What to take 1/31/13 2:56 PM
    • Hi,

      I have one gene of the C677T. I recently started taking Methyl Flolate, Methly B12 and b6 and felt horrible after a few days. I'm wondering if I should have Niacin on hand.

      My Naturopath does muscle testing and found the Thorne brand Methyl Guard
      Three Capsules Contain:
      Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal 5'-Phosphate) 20.4 mg.
      Folate (as L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolate from L-5-Methyltetrahydrofolic Acid, Glucosamine Salt) 1.2 mg.
      Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) 1.2 mg.
      Betaine Anhydrous (Trimethylglycine) 1.8 g.

      Muscle tested well for me.

      However, I'm worried about starting too fast again and wanted your opinion (using your products).

      Which products would you recommend of yours and how much should I start with? If I tested well for this one which would you recommend in your line?

      Am I right that I read Dr. Lynch's article saying if you feel terrible after a few days then maybe try 50 mg of Niacin?

      Thank you!

    • Hello - 

      There are two nutrients which may help:

      - Neutralize as it contains potassium and sodium. This may help those experiencing side effects from restarting methylation. Do take away from meals as it is a buffering agent. Consider starting with 1 capsule and use as directed by your physician. You may use up to 1-2 capsules three times a day or as directed by your doctor. Read the cautions on the product page.

      - Niacin as it may help reduce SAM levels if they are elevated which are pushing CBS enzyme to work faster. Consider 1/10th tablet every 30 min to 1 hr and stop taking once your side effects diminish.

      The HomocysteX Plus is similar to that of Methyl Guard Plus.

      You may find that using HomocysteX may be more suitable for you as it is without TMG and B2. Or you may find the Active B12 Lozenge with L-5-MTHF or simply L-5-MTHF to be more suitable. I recommend starting with a single ingredient first and seeing how you feel. Typically I recommend the use of methylcobalamin first, then adding in methylfolate.

      In health,

      Dr Lynch

  • magnesium stearate10/31/13 11:09 PM
    • I was wondering why on some products like this that you use magnesium stearate. I for one stay clear of this not because of what others have said about it but because it makes me rush to the bathroom. It would be nice if you would not use this in any of your products.
    • Hello,

      Thank you for your feedback. We are trying to manufacture as many possible products without the inclusion of magnesium stearate. We will keep your feedback in mind as we move forward.

      Thank you,

  • Splitting time release niacin?11/7/13 6:20 AM
    • Hi Dr.,

      I'm positive for C677T and my homocysteine level is 11.

      My doctor recommended:

      500 mg time release Niacin 3X a day
      5-MTHF 2000 mcg 2X a day
      B-6 100 mg a day
      methyl-B-12 1000 mcg a day

      I'm on the B6 and B12 with no problem. I took one tablet of the 5-MTHF and had terrible depression and strange thoughts.

      Here are my questions:

      - From what I read on your site, I need to take a tiny dose of the 5-MTHF and have the niacin around in case I still have a problem. Correct?

      - Based on what I'm seeing on your site, taking the 500 mg of niacin 3 times a day every day seems like it could negate the effects of the 5-MTHF. What do you think? Would you suggest that much on a daily basis?

      - I haven't started the time release niacin yet. I'm concerned about the large dose, even though its time release. I see that you advise splitting your Niacin tablet. I thought that this was not advisable when you're dealing with a time release product. So if you split the pill, will the niacin still be delivered in a time released fashion, or will it be delivered all at once?

      By the way - I so appreciate that your vitamins are gluten free! Thanks for doing that.

    • Hello Andrea,

      Dr. Lynch is no longer available for patient consults. Yes, niacin can help to offset the side effects of methylfolate, usually 50 to 100mg is recommended. Our tablets are designed to be halved and quartered and are scored accordingly, but you are correct most time release products should not be altered. As for your other questions we suggest that you consult with your primary care provider and discuss your concerns and hesitations with them, as we are not licensed healthcare professionals.

      Thank you,

      Strother Kukes

  • Splitting time release niacin follow-up question11/7/13 8:49 AM
    • Hi Strother,

      Thanks for the response.

      Are you saying that your niacin can be quartered and the quarters still retain the time release properties? If so, that's brilliant!

      Also, though my doctor knew enough to get me tested (which I'm grateful for), I think she doesn't have in-depth knowledge about treatment. When I mentioned that I had a very bad reaction to the 5MTHF, she said she's never seen that before and didn't seem to know much about how to deal with it. I think I need someone with more knowledge in this area.

      I have not been able to locate anyone in this area that I think has extensive knowledge on helping with methylation defects. On one site I found that lists practitioners, there are a couple in Florida but they're 5-11 hours drive away.

      Do you know of anyone in the Miami - Fort Lauderdale area? Or someone knowledgeable who does phone consults at a reasonable price?

      Thank you Strother!

    • Hello,

      Yes, the tablet will retain its time release properties when it has been halved and quartered. Here is a link to MTHFR.net which contains some information on how to find a doctor, here is the link http://mthfr.net/mthfr-resources/. We realize this is not as comprehensive as we would like, which is one of the reasons Dr. Lynch is dedicating his time to educating other professionals so it will not be so hard to find informed physicians. We are working on a much larger list of physicians that we hope to be able to share around the first of the year. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

      Thank you,

      Strother Kukes

  • 1/10 Niacin tablet?12/2/13 10:23 PM
    • I see on one of his pages that Dr. Lynch recommended taking 1/10 of this 500-mg extended release Niacin tablet. Can the tablet actually be cut into tenths?
    • Hello - 

      Yes, you may break this into 1/10ths - not perfectly - but pretty close. What I typically tell people is to take a 'nibble' and that helps. Do not chew it - just swallow it with some water.

      We are currently developing a Niacin Lozenge - 50 mg and also a Niacin capsule - 50 mg - to make it easier ;) - should be available in a couple months.

      In health,Dr Lynch

  • The product says niacin not nicotinic acid, confused?1/13/14 12:29 PM
    • I purchased your extended release niacin and the label states it is niacin not nicotinic acid. Your website says the same thing. Can you clarify?

      Thanks, Terri
    • Hello Terri,

      Yes that is correct. Our form of Niacin is not nicotinic, it is from Niacin USP.

      Kind regards,

      Angela

  • Vasodilation (flushing)3/31/14 1:34 PM
    • Hello there

      I wanted to know whether this particular brand which releases the effects of niacin over several hours, still cause vasodilation to occur?
      The reason why I ask is because it states that it is slow release due to avoiding flushing effect.
      I am confused and want to detox and need the vasodilation to occur because I think that it would help a great deal with another treatment I am undergoing.
    • Hello,

      The Niacin 500mg will still cause vasodilatation.  The tablet is designed to be slow release so it is releasing smaller amounts of nicotinic acid over a longer time, which can make the "flushing” feeling less noticeable. If you are specifically looking for this effect you may be better off with a non time released product.

      Sincerely,

      Strother
