Carlson Niacin Time – 500mg of Niacin with No Flush/ Time Release October 28, 2010

Carlson Niacin Time (500 mg)

Carlson Niacin Time (500 mg) – No flush/ time release is finally back in stock after several months from manufacturer.

Niacin is a type of B vitamin. It is water-soluble, which means it is not stored in the body. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet.

Niacin is involved in the proper metabolism of fat and fat-like substances such as cholesterol and often prescribed as a treatment for elevated total cholesterol, high trigylcerides and other types of lipid disorders.  However, Niacin taken in a single 500mg dose often causes flushing or itching.

Carlson Niacin-Time contains niacin prepared by a patented method to minimize these unpleasant side effects. With many people there is absolutely no flush, and the amount needed is sometimes less than needed with other forms of Niacin. Each Niacin-Time tablet provides a gradual release of 500mg over a period of 5 to 7 hours for sustained absorption. See more details.
