Great but go back to smaller size
I have been using this product for more than 20 years; was advised by my primary care physician who was a cardiologist also plagued with high cholesterol. My numbers went from a high of 315 total cholesterol to below 145 and with few exceptions, have stayed below that during the whole time, but I also take a statin.

My only complaint is that the GNC product has changed the size of the 500 mg tablet from a smaller round pill to one that is elongated and about twice the size with the same potency. The size increase makes it difficult to carry sufficient pills in a daily pill case. Please return to the smaller size!

Cholesterol
This product flushes your skin, giving a warm sensation. If you take cholesterol medicine this is a great supplement.

Use Daily
My doctor recommended taking 1500 mg daily and using a product that is NOT non-flushing. This is one of the few available that I have found. He wanted the flushing to rid my body of excess cholesterol. It seems to be working as I am not on any prescription meds for this purpose.

Robert K on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Immediate release, can cause skin flushing. Some use aspirin to lessen flushing. I've gotten used to the flushing, mostly upper body, typically dissipates within an hour.
Does this niacin pill clean your entire system out, and how long does it take?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This item supports blood vessel health. Product description does not include cleaning your system out.
is it a non flush version or flush version?
A shopper on May 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is the flush version. The no-flush is labeled as such, GNC No Flush Niacin 500 MG.
What form of niacin is this? The label simple states that it is niacin.

The nicotinic acid form of niacin lowers cholesterol, but other forms of niacin do not. These other forms that do not lower cholesterol include nicotinamide and inositol nicotinate.
A shopper on Dec 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It is Nicotinic Acid.
is niacin also a toxic cleanser
A shopper on Jan 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes indirectly as it supports healthy blood vessel development. Healthy blood vessels carry toxins out of the blood.
Is this product "slow release"?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No, in fact the product may react quickly giving your system a flushing like feeling.
Do you get a flush each time you take 500MG three times a day if you take three capsules a day?
Lynford T on Mar 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: if you took them all at once (1500mg)- absolutely you will flush, By parceling them out to one 500 mg capsule 3x a day you may still experience a less intense flush, or a fairly intense flush for a shorter duration than if you took all three at once. Of course, your personal biology will determine the intensity of your response. Not taking it for several days will usually mean that the next time you take niacin, your response will likely be stronger or more pronounced- or more noticeable -than if you take it every day. This may also include facial . upper body redness and a redness and puffiness in the hands ( especially tops of wrists when the palm is bent back.) this is normal and just part o the "flush."

I hope this was helpful.
Will your body eventually build up a tolerance to the flushing or will it always be the same?
Joseph R on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I gradually built up a tolerance.
The label just says "Niacin 500 mg". What form is the Niacin? Is it nicotinic acid?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is nicotinic acid.
Does it really flush everything out your system?

How long until your system is cleansed?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2018
I am looking at a produce called Super Beets. The question is does GNC have a product that does the same?
