Key Benefits and Actions*

  • May help support cellular health and normal energy production
  • May help support healthy metabolism and digestive health
  • May help support healthy skin
  • May help support circulatory health

Niacin Capsules by Seeking Health provide 50 mg of niacin, also known as vitamin B3, a nutrient that is naturally produced in the body and is found in many of the foods we eat. Niacin may help support healthy circulation, healthy carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and healthy skin. Because the body cannot store niacin, it requires adequate intake of this important vitamin everyday.*

Niacin may support normal mood regulation by relieving any symptoms that could be related to a deficiency of this important vitamin. 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 maintain healthy levels of niacin within the body. If tryptophan is divided between serotonin production and niacin production, serotonin production may be reduced when niacin levels are inadequate. Supplemental niacin and tryptophan can be beneficial for healthy moods.*

Niacin is important for proper functioning of all cells, including the cells of the brain and nervous system. Niacin has the well-known effect of causing vasodilation, often called the niacin “flush,” which is an opening of small blood vessels (capillaries) for increased blood flow. These are the blood vessels which are of most value in reaching fatty tissues. Healthy blood flow is important for allowing toxins stored in these fatty tissues to be removed into the bloodstream, and processed out of the body. Niacin may also support healthy skin by promoting normal moisture retention, elasticity and tone. Niacin may also support healthy cartilage.*

For the same amount of niacin in a lozenge format for those who have trouble swallowing capsules, consider our Niacin Lozenges.

Warnings

Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare professional prior to use. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged. Consult with a healthcare professional before use if you are using antibiotics, cholesterol-lowering drugs, blood pressure medications, alpha-inhibitors or other medications. Niacin may cause a "flush" feeling including tingling, feeling warm, blushing or turning red (usually on the face, ears, neck, or chest). This reaction is more common for individuals who have not used niacin-containing supplements before, or for those who are sensitive to niacin. It usually subsides in a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the individual. You can reduce your likelihood of experiencing that reaction by eating a meal before or very shortly after taking a supplement containing niacin, drinking plenty of water, and making sure that your dose is appropriate. It may be best to start out with only a portion of a serving and gradually work your way up to your desired dose, allowing your system to acclimate to the niacin. We recommend that you consult with a healthcare professional for help determining the best dose of niacin for your individual needs, and that you talk with your practitioner about any side-effects your experience while using niacin.

Great product

For some reason I was unable to tolerate niacin I tried from 2 other companies. But, when I tried Seeking Health Niacin - I had no trouble at all tolerating it. It is a small enough dose that the typical niacin flush is hardly noticeable. Great product!

Used to gradually increase

Used to gradually increase dose - Another reviewer gave me the idea to use this size tablet to gradually increase my dose of niacin after I had quit taking a larger dose for a period of months. Using these, I could gradually increase to my former 250mg dose without issue. Flushing is a mystery...the timing and the degree vary from day to day even when my husband and I don't perceivably change anything.

Awesome! - I've tried

Awesome! - I've tried other niacin products from other companies and couldn't tolerate them. This one is a nice palatable dose and easy on the system, yet effective for its purpose.

Great for flushing -

Great for flushing - I was directed by my ND to do niacin flushes to treat my hereditary hypercholesterenemia and elevated lipoprotein a. I need to take at least 150mg to flush but I'm glad the pills are in lower dosages so that I can add or remove as needed.
