My daughter brought back the "No Flush" instead of Niacin "Flush Free". ?
Hi, i am basically going to copy & paste part of a transcript describing the difference between Niacin & Niacin Flush free...
"The nicotinic acid is the substance that causes the flushing side effect of niacin. The flush normally begins as a deep red in the face and then spreads to the rest of the body. Intense warmth and itching usually accompany the flush and this lasts for about 30 minutes. Other side effects of niacin include increased blood sugar levels, increased uric acid levels, dry skin, stomach irritation, or heartburn... Products labelled as "no-flush" niacin generally contain no nicotinic acid". Does this make sense?
