Niacin Sustained Release 500mg tablets slowly release 500mg of pure niacin. Sustained release niacin is better tolerated than regular crystalline high-potency niacin supplements. For maximum benefit and fewer side effects, Niacin Sustained Release releases its niacin over a time frame of two to three hours. This way, the niacin is more efficiently utilized by the liver and more evenly distributed to peripheral tissues compared to crystalline niacin. For the same reasons, Niacin Sustained Release can generally be used at somewhat lower doses than crystalline niacin supplement.
Note:Niacin may produce flushing, tingling, itching and feeling of warmth in certain individuals which under normal continuous use will disappear. However, if conditions persist, consult a doctor.
