    Niacin

    Anyone use niacin for vascularity or other reasons?

    I've been hearing about it lately and want to know more from experienced bb's.

    I just bought a bottle of 500mg Niacin to give it a shot for my next pics. The bottle reads, "Protein, Fat, Carbohydrate Metabolizer". What exactly does Niacin do beside make you flushed and maybe a little mor vascular and HOT??

    take asprin with it to help stop the redness and flushing.

    niacin, is said to increase hgh, when you take it before workout's. Of course it isn't amazing amounts, but it does release some. I read it in some huge body building book.. can't remember the name.

    JMO, but I take it, i think its benifical if u can handle the feeling of it (try it with asprin)

    The no-flush niacin is probably niacinamide
    Straight niacin increases sensitivity to sunlight, and can be used, with caution, to speed up tanning. It seems to produce a quicker surface tan, which will not last as long as regular tanning.
    Here's a link to a detailed paper on the subject - a search engine like Google will give you more.

    I'm taking Niacin now as a way to improve my good cholesterol. After a cycle of 1-AD at pretty high doses, I got my blood checked and the doc freaked, said she'd never seen good chol that low. So I have been taking Niacin, fish oil, red yeast rice, garlic and upping the cardio. It's working and the cholesterol levels are looking good.

    If it has increased my vascularity, I haven't noticed.
