No Flush Niacin offers all the benefits people get in niacin supplements: metabolism health, cardiovascular and neurological support. However, it doesn’t cause the flushing many people experience.
No-Flush Niacin contains a special form of niacin, inositol hexanicotinate, consisting of six molecules of niacin chemically linked to an inositol molecule. It is hydrolyzed in the body to free niacin and inositol, which is a very slow process. Its novel properties allow for true niacin activity without the characteristic niacin flush.
No Flush Niacin Benefits
- Delivers niacin activity without the flush
- Helps maintain cardiovascular, neurological & overall health
- Promotes a healthy metabolism
Niacin is called “B3” because it was the third B vitamin to be discovered. Supplementing with niacin can help people maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels, an attribute identified in the 1950s. This makes it one of the most-studied nutrients for this purpose. Niacin also helps metabolize the foods you eat and, like many B vitamins, promotes healthy cellular energy production.
Niacin (vitamin B3) is an essential nutrient with important functions for maintaining cardiovascular, neurological and overall health. Niacin supplements containing nicotinic acid can cause uncomfortable flushing. No Flush Niacin contains a special form of niacin, inositol hexanicotinate, consisting of six molecules of niacin chemically linked to an inositol molecule.
Some of the ingested inositol hexanicotinate is hydrolyzed in the body to slowly release free niacin and inositol.However, because much of it remains intact in the body, it is thought that inositol hexanicotinate may exert direct effects in addition to those of its constituent inositol and niacin fractions, without causing the characteristic niacin flush.
