Niacin is an essential nutrient, also known as vitamin B3. It is found in foods such as legumes, nuts, avocados, eggs, meat and dairy products. Niacin is water-soluble and is not stored in the body, meaning that it is important to ensure that adequate amounts are consumed through the diet and supplements.
Niacin helps with the proper functioning of the nerves, skin and digestive system. It is an important factor in the metabolism of foods into energy; and is required in many essential biological functions including cellular energy production and DNA repair. While niacin’s effects are beneficial, it often causes an uncomfortable symptom known as the “niacin flush”, a harmless but uncomfortable sensation of warming and itching of the skin. Niacinamide, a common type of sustained release niacin, does not cause this flushing effect, but comes with the even worse side effect of potential liver damage.
AOR’s Niacin No-Flush provides 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 but without the potential risks to the liver caused by niacinamide. Niacin No-Flush is a great way to increase your niacin intake without the uncomfortable flushing side effects.
AOR’s Niacin No-Flush contains Inositol hexanicotinate, a form of niacin that is bound to inositol. This formation allows it to deliver niacin to the bloodstream slowly and in a controlled fashion, avoiding both the unpleasantness of flushing and the danger of liver damage.
Regular niacin can cause unpleasant side effects such as itchy, burning skin – the niacin “flush”. Niacin No-Flush is inositol hexanicotinate, an ester of niacin (vitamin B3), that has not been associated with the niacin “flush”.
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or any animal byproduct.
Take one capsule daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. Do not exceed the recommended dose except on the advice of a physician.
No serious adverse reactions to inositol hexanicotinate have been reported. However, some such reactions have been reported for conventional niacin, which cannot be absolutely ruled out at this time. It is recommended that regular liver enzyme tests be done in consultation with a physician.
