Non-Flushing Vitamin B3
- No unpleasant flushing effects
- Supports healthy cholesterol balance
- A safer form of sustained-release niacin
Getting enough vitamin B3, also known as niacin, is a very important part of supporting our overall health. Ideally, most people should get enough niacin from their daily food intake since this is a nutrient present in common foods such as yeast, milk, meat, tortillas, cereal grains, among others. However, many of us skip meals and tend to consume processed foods that often lack the nutrients we need for us to stay healthy.
That’s why supplementation is important–to fill in the gaps our hectic lives. Niacin is often part of a daily multivitamin and sometimes used as a treatment in high amounts to improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks.
AOR’s Niacin No-Flush works by providing a unique form of niacin, known as inositol hexanicotinate (IHN), a compound that releases vitamin B3 into the body slowly to prevent the flushing effect caused by other niacin supplements, as well as eliminating the potential risks to the liver caused by niacinamide.
Niacin is an essential nutrient, also known as vitamin B3, that works as an important cellular mediator. Niacin is metabolized primarily in the liver to niacinamide, which is a raw material to the two cellular coenzymes nicotine-adenine dinucleotide (NAD+ and its high-energy form, NADH) and nicotine-adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP).
Regular niacin may cause unpleasant side effects such as itchy, burning skin—the niacin “flush.” Standard niacin may also harm the liver. However, inositol hexanicotinate, which is the main ingredient in AOR’s Niacin No-Flush™, delivers niacin to the bloodstream slowly, eliminating the flushed reaction, and has not been associated with impaired liver health or other side effects of conventional or slow-release niacin.
DISCUSSION: Niacin No-Flush is inositol hexanicotinate, an ester of niacin (vitamin B3). Regular niacin can cause unpleasant side effects such as itchy, burning skin – the niacin “flush”. Inositol hexanicotinate has not been associated with the niacin “flush”.*
