Niacin (Vitamin B3) Powder

Key Features

  • Vitamin B3
  • Essential nutrient
  • Non-GMO
  • Taste

  • Mixability

Niacin is an organic compound commonly referred to as Vitamin B3. Because it is an essential nutrient, deficiency may require supplementation.

Directions

Serving Size & Timing

Niacin is suggested to be taken in servings from 100 to 500 mg per day, depending on intended effect. A serving size of about 1/8 tsp will equal roughly 275 mg, so you can adjust this apportioning either lower or higher to reach a desired amount (for perspective, the FDA recommends no more than 20 mg of Niacin daily). Taking this supplement along with a meal may reduce potential stomach discomfort.

INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION

CONCENTRATION OF NIACIN

Niacin comes in several forms; this particular supplement is Nicotinic Acid. There are no fillers of any kind present in the non-irradiated solution. It is pure food grade and vegan friendly.

NIACIN SIDE EFFECTS

Niacin can increase blood flow, which is why it can act as a flushing agent to dispel toxins from the body. However, this may result in a few side effects such as redness, itchiness, headache and possible low blood pressure. In addition, those who are taking any sort of medication designed to thin or thicken the blood should not take this without consulting a doctor first, as it may alter the effects of the medication.

Taking more than the recommended amount of Niacin can result in very serious side effects such as liver damage and ulcers. It may also cause various stomach pains and gastrointestinal problems that will stop if discontinued. Still, those that have had a history of liver issues or any kind of stomach ulcer problems are cautioned away from taking this supplement.

In addition, any woman who is nursing or pregnant and any person that has asthma, glaucoma, gout or gallbladder problems should not take this product without talking to a health professional. Taking more than 3 grams per day of this supplement can potentially cause the body to fail at glucose absorption, an essential process involved in creating energy for the body.

Niacin should never be taken in servings exceeding 500mg per day, as this will be just about the maximum level of “flushing” that the body can take. Overdose can be extremely dangerous and even fatal. Starting off with a smaller amount of Niacin and working up if the desired effects do not occur is strongly recommended. People who experience pain from flushing may take aspirin about 30 minutes before beginning their Niacin intake.

TIPS

This product dissolves more easily in warm water and frequent shaking/stirring. It may have a slightly bitter or sour taste; this is a natural component of Niacin. This product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to preserve effectiveness and potency.

RESTRICTIONS

Due to varying import regulations, not all of our supplements are available to international customers. This product is restricted for sale in the following countries:

Customer Reviews

Everybody needs niacin
High quality, inexpensive, mixes well, what more could you want from a supplement? For those who are apprehensive about the flush, don't worry. If you take it daily, the flush goes away. Just make sure you don't take it if you already have some kind of itch or rash. *

Works very fast
I've tried Niacin supplements from a variety of suppliers - flush and no flush versions. While this version will make you flush, it was the least uncomfortable compared to every other option I've tried. Once I refined the measuring, I barely noticed it. The powder is very fine so don't open the package quickly.*

On 10/31/2016 Adam said...

Definitely Pure
This has been the best Niacin I have ever taken. I took 1/8 of a tsp and I had immediately felt the results. This is the best stuff I have ever taken and you can't beat the price*

Taking for cholesterol
Taking this for cholesterol. Too soon to know if it works, but gives niacin flush very effectively. As always, excellent service. Only complaint is package is very hard to close back up. *

Niacin worked for me !!!
I was put on Niacin to help my total blood cholesterol level and my cholesterol ratio (HDL/LDL). My total numbers are down and my cholesterol ratio is now flipped to where it should be. Niacin worked for me.*

This stuff is pretty good. The price is very affordable and the product comes to my house pretty quickly. I make my own pre-workout and started to add this product to it and will see how it goes. *

Great Product
Received this product a few days ago and I get the great flush i was hoping for with 500 mg daily. I am happy with bulk supplements and just started ordering from them. Their products are quality with good saving.

NOTE I am giving this review for a free sample, however, the above comments I stand by for their quality and would order again and again.*

Niacin
Great product. I won't buy from any other company but Bulk Supplements. I make my own capsules, and this powder makes it convenient to do so. The new packaging is difficult to close with the ziplock, but it could just be me, and it's not a deal breaker. *

This is an excellent product and very high quality, you can tastes it's purity. I am greatly satisfied with this product!*

Love the product
We are always pleased with the cost, fast shipping, excellent packaging and quality of the products from this company. The niacin is great. My husband uses it to lower triglycerides. It does not dissolve as easily as niacinamide which we also have from here, but does dissolve with the help of a hand blender. The niacinamide we use for cosmetics and supplementation. We will reorder.*

Awesome product and service. Great value for the money!*

Best bang for buck
My doctor wanted me on a statin, I started niacin instead, and I'm so glad I did.

I'm lucky in that "flushing" never really bothered me. Over 18 months I have increased my intake of nicotinic acid from 500mg to 8500mg. Along the way I tried a variety of niacin pills. I am confident that this is some high-quality stuff.

Immediate-release niacin, like this, causes the strongest "flushing" but is also the safest and has the best health effects. Extended-release niacin decreases flushing, but raises risk of liver injury. "Flush-free niacin", of course, has very few of the benefits of nicotinic acid. It doesn't get more immediate-release than this.

While wonderfully inexpensive, and fast acting, this powder lacks the charm of tablets. It dissolves readily in water, with a strong sour-acidic flavor. It isn't a dealbreaker, nor is it pleasant.

Niacin has some great effects, and not just on cholesterol. It protects against cardiovascular diseases, certain cancers, autoimmune diseases, dementia, depression, osteoarthritis, even schizophrenia. Don't take my word for it, PubMed has many thousands of studies and reviews about niacin. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/store/10.1111/j.1365-2796.2005.01528.x/asset/j.1365-2796.2005.01528.x.pdf?v=1&t=ioxqsge4&s=c99a6d8fb07ae3e22738b216a87b78e04f4fb4f7 Is a good place to start.

Niacin is a potent stimulator of growth hormone; I've found myself gaining muscle and losing fat more easily, and healing faster. Niacin, by stimulating growth hormone, can raise blood sugar and lower insulin sensitivity. I exercise vigorously and regularly, so I'm less concerned about this, but it is something to be conscious of. It can also place some strain on the liver of some succeptable people, so it should most definitely be under medical supervision.

In conclusion, this is great stuff at a great price!*

Niaqcin - Vitamin b3
I started taking Niacin three weeks ago. I take 500 mg daily, 250 mg in the morning after breakfast and 250 mg in the evening after dinner. I started taking it after reading some good reviews on the possible positive effects that it may have on arthritis. It's a little early to rate its effects, but I'm very hopeful. *

On 4/26/2016 ron ball said...

definitely will give you a flush!
i have never in my life experienced a "flush", until i took this b3. used it in rose water, put a small amount in bottle, shook it, sprayed my face and got a flush on my face and neck, lol! felt a bit hot, got red (but not too red) and about an hour and half later, my face looked rosy. i will definitely keep using this for DYI facials and to take internally! *

On 4/3/2016 blanca said...

Niacin potency
I purchased this for a product I am creating and realized that the dosage on the bag is way high. The recommended value for B3-Niacin is 10-20mg 25 maximum. The higher the dose the more you will have a irritating skin flush and higher blood pressure. Any more than the recommended dose is considered dangerous. The product is excellent it is well made just be sure you use it properly.*

Support vascular & heart health
My husband had a stroke, he's 55yo; within a few months he had 4 more "small" ones for which we did not seek medical attention. After the 1st one they put him on several medications, which did nothing but make him more sick. I've been reading & researching. Life-style & nutrition changes are near impossible to implement without causing him more stress. So, I'm working on sneaking good "stuff" into drinks & smoothies. With BS pure niacin I add BS B6, B12, Rutin, which improves vascular elasticity, and D-Ribose powders into a lemon/baking soda drink; 1-lemon squeezed, 1/4 tsp baking powder, in 16oz bottle filled w/RO (reverse osmosis) water, every morning.
Additionally, I have been spraying magnesium oil on any part of his body he'll allow - Mag. Oil spray I make from Mag. Chloride flakes, which BS so far does not have. :-/.
This combination has made a remarkable difference! I don't know what we'd do without BS (bulk supplements)! The quality & purity far surpass any other out there, allowing me to make and implement sound, informed decisions for my husbands life. *

On 3/22/2016 Denise said...

It works!
Niacin has so many uses! Make sure to take it AFTER meals or you may experience some nausea like I did the first time. I love this product, i mix it with water or a smoothie in the morning. Because it is water soluble, it is utilized frequently by the body and thus must be replaced frequently. so I take it 3x's per day. My skin has turned a light shade of tan. Flushing symptoms are minimized after a few weeks or a month. My girlfriend & I each get a 'calming' effect from the niacin.
And Bulk Supplements delivers fast, usually 3 days, which is awesome!
I have slowly adjusted my niacin intake. Initially I took about 150mg per dose and a month later I take about 500mg per dose.*

On 3/7/2016 Jeff said...

Great product, nice flush.
This is a product I can recommend.
Bear in mind that this will cause FLUSHING and you need to be careful about the amount you use, start low and build up if you are not familiar with this flushing effect.
FIVE STARS*

Finally ... Supplements that Make Sense!
I was always baffled that while supplements are hailed as being "good for you," the supplements that you find at your typical grocer or pharmacy are full of artificial this and artificial that. Many of the choices at your typical health-store are not that much more pure.

Then, along came BulkSupplements! Finally ... Supplements that Make Sense!

I am delighted that this supplement has caused my neurological symptoms to ease significantly. However, finding the right dosage was tricky for me, since I had needed to find “the sweet spot” in which I take a large enough amount to feel as much improvement as possible and yet a small enough amount to avoid breaking out into a rash.

When I add this supplement to food, it makes it a bit sour, which is fine with me.

Thank you, BulkSupplements, for doing the right thing!

**Pure** Niacin B3
First off - this is was an awesome experience. Website extremely informative, packaging informative as well. I paid for 2 day shipping and received it quicker than that. The size for the price was also awesome. Great deal. Also they are available for any questions. This is an awesome product that helps flush the system. *

I must say my order was shipped same day that I ordered. It was very well packaged and I have started using the Niacin that gave me the flush (which is what it is supposed to do) so it is the real thing>*

stronger than other niacin I've taken- packs a good punch*

On 11/3/2015 vickie said...

Great efficacy!
Wooooh-this stuff is potent! The efficacy on this B3 is phenomenal! I've taken several other brands of b3, but the flush was never as intense as this one (one way to know for sure validation is taken place). Just as stated in Niacin side effects above too much can result in serious side effects, in this case less is best! I took 1/4 and for me that was too much, so start low (dosing) and go slow (gradually increase as tolerated). Just be careful on your dosing, the flush can be VERY scary, but this is some great stuff! *

On 10/20/2015 Joshua said...

High quality product. Just 1/16 tsp was enough to give me the full on Niacin flush. Ive tried plenty of preworkout drinks with Niacin in it and never had a niacin flush like this before. Great price for a sizable amount. would definitely buy again*

Flush me, baby!
I received my b3 Niacin in record time, thank you! I put it it my smoothie and went about my business. I am somused to other niacin brands that I never even think about the flush as I normally don't get them. Within a few minutes I was turning beet red all over my body. I was out shopping, laughing at how red I was. The delivery was almost immediate and lasted for a good hour. No itching just red. I was impressed. I love Bulk Supplement products and this is no exception. As a vegetarian and a person with adhd they have made my life better. I used have issues with adrenal fatigue and toxic rashes from adderall but Bulk Supplements' products have changed that and allowed my to combat those issues without taking more drugs. Soooo happy!*

On 9/11/2015 barbee said...

Great Product!
I loved the Niacin, although the amount I put in (500mg) was a little much as some of my friends suggested this amount, I would not! I was quite flush but it helped the pump. Next time I'll tone the amount down a bit!

Great product, would definitely recommend!*

On 8/1/2015 Derek said...

Love the Niacin Flush
Had to wait a little longer than I had hoped to try this product because the post office lost my first order. After, an email to BulkSupplements and a picture of the empty envelope they sent me I received my order in 3 days.

This has to be one of my favorite supplement. If you have never had a niacin flush, order this product...it feels awesome.

This stuff is relatively palatable, it kind has a funky lemony taste, so it really doesn't have to be mixed with anything or put in a capsule to be ingested.

Great Product!
I've been ordering form Bulk Supplements for a few months and many products. It's always surprising how fast the orders come, even before I start wondering "where" and start hitting that "track" button. I'm extremely happy with all the products I've received and that includes the Niacin. I put this in my smoothie every morning and love that Niacin rush. The rush has calmed down a tiny bit from the first day, but very extreme the first day. Great price and learning more everyday about the benefits of niacin.*

On 7/16/2015 Karie said...

Great stuff
I've ordered quite a few products from Bulk Supplements and I am completely sold on this company. The ordering is so easy and they arrive before I can start questioning "where" and tracking the order. That right there makes me very happy to start with, but the products are great.

I put this Niacin in my smoothie in the morning and then start preparing for the day. I think I'm a little addicted to the morniing rush. Too early to tell the other benefits except it must be good, because I love it.*

Niacin B-3
Truth be told I was really pleasantly surprised as to the time of delivery.So right from the start I got a positive just from the delivery.
The efficiency of the product was also truly surprising.I mean it only took minutes,and that maybe an exaggeration,for me to begin to fill the effect....On the way to healthier,great sense of accomplishment.
It is absolutely great to find a product that produces as promised.You are a win-win; I THINK YOU HAVE A CUSTOMER FOR LIFE.
I will not be slow to recommend you to as many as I come in contact with that has an interest for supplements.It is heart warming to have "good news" that you are set on ready to share.*

Niacin Flush
I ordered Niacin from BulkSupplements website less than a week ago. Product arrived within a few days. I am very impressed with the quality. I have already been able to use the niacin prior to exercise. I take it right before I start and within a few minutes I get a nice flush that helps open my pores. I am using it to help detox. It feels like it is doing a great job.*

On 4/26/2015 Ron said...

niacin
As of this writing-I am more than satisfied with the quality of the products I am receiving from Bulk Supplements. The niacin that I have recently ordered and started using is the flushing type which I prefer. This way I know it is working. I also know it's working by the numbers I have been getting for my triglycerides which have been hovering around 107.I will continue to order from Bulk Supplements as long as I know the quality is there.*

Niacin detox: Take niacin. Then, after 20 minutes, exercise for 30 minutes. Then, sweat it out in a sauna or any hot environment
After my last purchase, I was invited to choose and review this free package of BulkSupplements Pure Niacin (Vitamin B3) Powder (100 grams).

First I want to say according to the BulkSupplements website, that this niacin is rated US Pharmaceutical grade, a very high grade of purity (higher than food grade). This US-based purity test assures that regardless of what country the niacin was produced and purified in, purity problems of any kind should be extremely unlikely.

I am following Dr. Yu's niacin detox recommendations. To read about this, just google (niacin detox) and hit the first entry: This is a May 4, 2014 Joseph Mercola article interviewing Dr. George Yu, who "explains that a safe and effective way to detox is to use a combination of niacin, exercise, and sauna therapy."

He explains that only regular niacin [like this BulkSupplements Pure Niacin USP] - not niacinamide, which is toxic in large quantities, not no-flush niacin (inositol hexanicotinate), which does nothing, and not any sort of extended or slow-release niacin, which never gives the liver a break and thus is toxic - can do the job and is safe even in large quantities. Dr. Yu suggests starting out at 50 mg once a day and working up to 500 mg once a day. For the 9/11 firefighters or those with Gulf War Syndrome, Dr. Yu used the same protocol, but up to 5000 mg once a day had to be used.

Dr. Yu makes a point that "detox," in medical lingo, is something that happens only in the liver. He prefers the expression "mobilization and elimination." He says the flush and the exercise are necessary to vasodilate the blood capillaries and loosen up the toxins contained in fat cells. Then, an hour after taking the niacin, the body goes through what's called "Rebound Lipolysis." This is where initially for an hour the niacin causes the fat cells to tightly hang on to their toxins. Then, after an hour, the niacin causes the fat cells to explode, to undergo lipolysis and dump their contents, triglycerides and toxins, into the bloodstream. This is mobilization in a big way and lasts for about five hours. (You don't feel it.) Concomitant with this is elimination, that is, sweating out the toxins in a sauna or in any hot environment. Fasting, by itself, does not cause fat cells to lipolyse, but still causes the release of a lot of toxins. This is why drinking a lot of water during fasting is necessary - to dilute the toxins being eliminated through the urine. Fasting does not eliminate the fat cells. They are shrunken, but they can grow back.

The second entry after googling (niacin detox), natural news website, says that niacin "is a booster rocket to accelerate any detox method you choose. ... Enemas, chelating agents, fasting, and sauna are all open to one's preference." Dr. Yu also recommends using about five 100 milligram tablets of activated charcoal, or bentonite clay, zeolite clay, french green clay, chlorella, or cilantro pesto to assist in the elimination of toxins. The natural news website goes on to say that, "High doses of niacin have been used in orthomolecular medicine/psychiatry since the 1950s for a variety of health problems, even schizophrenia. So it's safe and inexpensive and can be taken as often and long as you want."

Other websites, such as the freedom drug rehab website, have indicated that niacin increases blood sugar by a few percent for most people unless they are on a low-carb or ketogenic diet in which case the increase is negligible. Niacin has many benefits for people with coronary heart disease such as improving the various cholesterol numbers, especially for people with diabetes mellitus II and III (Alzheimer's). But due to the increase in blood sugar, medical supervision was recommended for diabetics supplementing with niacin. The freedom drug rehab website goes on to suggest that "People with liver disease, unexplained elevation of liver enzymes, active peptic ulcer disease, or a history of abnormal bleeding [or gout] should consult their physician before beginning niacin detox treatment." Furthermore, "Those with a past history of liver disease, jaundice, peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, or alcoholism should exercise caution with niacin."

Dr. Yu asks, "What is the downside of using Niacin besides the flush vasodilation? Very little! As I and others have seen, mild liver function elevations which are transient. I myself had to go through the program (using up to 3000 mg in a 30 day period) to understand and checked my liver functions without any changes. It is the non flush longer acting niacin which can cause more liver problems, which I never recommend."

Dr. Mercola says, "Dr Yu's recommendations seem to make sense and I am going to start experimenting with it soon and integrate it into my workout schedule by taking niacin before my Peak Fitness workouts, doing Peak Fitness on my elliptical, and then go into the sauna for half an hour twice a week."

I have been taking 137 milligram BulkSupplements's niacin every day for about two weeks. Twenty minutes after taking the niacin, which I have incorporated into my morning pre-workout stack, I run five all-out fifty-second sprints, which takes an additional half hour. I am overheated and sweating by then and keeping my sweatshirt zipped up, I drive for a half hour with the heater on full blast. Then I take a shower. A few hours later, at lunch, I take one gram of organic chlorella. At night, I take 3.13 grams magnesium citrate, 9.0 grams potassium citrate, and 6.0 grams ascorbic acid. All these things help in the elimination of toxins. Soon, I will bump up to 250 milligrams niacin every day.

I have been bothered with headaches every couple of weeks for years. They always start before I wake up and they last all day. (I am aware of the headache in dreams.) Nothing gets rid of them except three 325 mg tablets of aspirin. This amount of aspirin is toxic. Nothing else works at all. Then, I noticed a week ago when I got a headache, that niacin made it go away immediately. How about that? GreenMedInfo lists two clinical trials that have shown that niacin can alleviate migraine headaches. Maybe it's just a fluke.*

Niacin has many benefits for people with coronary heart disease such as improving the various cholesterol numbers, especially for people with diabetes mellitus II and III (Alzheimer's). But due to the increase in blood sugar, medical supervision was recommended for diabetics supplementing with niacin. The freedom drug rehab website goes on to suggest that "People with liver disease, unexplained elevation of liver enzymes, active peptic ulcer disease, or a history of abnormal bleeding [or gout] should consult their physician before beginning niacin detox treatment." Furthermore, "Those with a past history of liver disease, jaundice, peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, or alcoholism should exercise caution with niacin."

Dr. Yu asks, "What is the downside of using Niacin besides the flush vasodilation? Very little! As I and others have seen, mild liver function elevations which are transient. I myself had to go through the program (using up to 3000 mg in a 30 day period) to understand and checked my liver functions without any changes. It is the non flush longer acting niacin which can cause more liver problems, which I never recommend."

Dr. Mercola says, "Dr Yu's recommendations seem to make sense and I am going to start experimenting with it soon and integrate it into my workout schedule by taking niacin before my Peak Fitness workouts, doing Peak Fitness on my elliptical, and then go into the sauna for half an hour twice a week."

I have been taking 137 milligram BulkSupplements's niacin every day for about two weeks. Twenty minutes after taking the niacin, which I have incorporated into my morning pre-workout stack, I run five all-out fifty-second sprints, which takes an additional half hour. I am overheated and sweating by then and keeping my sweatshirt zipped up, I drive for a half hour with the heater on full blast. Then I take a shower. A few hours later, at lunch, I take one gram of organic chlorella. At night, I take 3.13 grams magnesium citrate, 9.0 grams potassium citrate, and 6.0 grams ascorbic acid. All these things help in the elimination of toxins. Soon, I will bump up to 250 milligrams niacin every day.

I have been bothered with headaches every couple of weeks for years. They always start before I wake up and they last all day. (I am aware of the headache in dreams.) Nothing gets rid of them except three 325 mg tablets of aspirin. This amount of aspirin is toxic. Nothing else works at all. Then, I noticed a week ago when I got a headache, that niacin made it go away immediately. How about that? GreenMedInfo lists two clinical trials that have shown that niacin can alleviate migraine headaches. Maybe it's just a fluke.*

My HDL count is below normal. My doctor had suggested Niacin to raise the count. This product seems to be powerful. The only problem, as might be expected, is the flush. Even 100 mg gaveme the flush. You need to start small and increse the dosage.*

I just recently got my order so I'm starting my niacin slow, based on reactions I got years ago with the flush. I expect the flush but want to build up to the reaction. I'm excited to be using this as I have been studying and impressed with the benefits of having an adequate amount. Thank you!*
