Niacin Flush

B3 Niacin is one of the most powerful detoxifying agents known to man.

I just took 1000mg of niacin first thing, and went bright red, flushed and itchy all over - got worried till I read this:

"Do not panic if you turn red or your heart beats rapidly when you take pure niacin because this is a good sign that your blood is pure and toxins are being removed. Some people take as much as 500-mg. niacin three times a day until they break through their toxins and feel a burn. And the less food you have in your stomach, the quicker the niacin will get into your bloodstream to do its work. While detoxing, begin taking 50 to 100 mg. Niacin and increase by 50 to 100 mg. daily until an immediate flush occurs. Some people get a stomachache when taking niacin on an empty tummy, so judge for yourself what works best for you. Just know it’s removing toxins from your blood.

Remember this general rule of thumb: if you have more toxins than niacin, you may not feel a burn through your skin. As you increase your daily niacin intake, you are increasing the amount of B3 in relation to your toxic load. When you have more niacin than toxins present, you WILL feel the burn within ten to twenty minutes after taking it."
think I will go and lie down !
ps its nice to feel warm though - its a very cold day here !
