BENEFITS OF NIACIN Arthritis- In cases of moderate arthritis, outstanding results have been produced by taking 1,000 to 1,500 mg a day. In more severe cases, as much as 3,000 mg to 4,000 mg have been recommended. In all instances, here and in the recommendations listed below, the dosage should be divided into five or six doses spread throughout the day rather than all at once. It should also be taken with the knowledge and supervision of your nutritionally oriented doctor.
Cholesterol and Triglycerides-One of the most effective and least expensive ways to lower blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) is to take 1,000 to 3,000 mg of niacin a day.Patients using 1,000 mg the first day, 2,000 mg the second day, and 3,000 mg each day thereafter have seen as much as a 25 percent reduction in cholesterol levels, and a 50 percent reduction in triglycerides.
Reversing Heart Disease- Heart patients on niacin treatment had less illness and lower death rates after five years when contrasted to those not using niacin. An even more astounding study revealed that niacin treatment actually reversed signs of heart disease in patients who had genetically related cholesterol problems.Niacin lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. It reduces the blood fats called “very low density lipoproteins,” which have been linked to heart disease and cancer. It improves the blood sugar problems that can lead to damage of the arterial walls. It dilates blood vessels, which improves the circulation to areas starved of oxygen and nutrients.
Senility and Memory Loss- Dr. Abram Hoffer, famous for his use of niacin in the treatment of schizophrenia and depression, has reported 1,000 mg of niacin taken 3 times a day can improve memory, and correct some senility problems. In one of his studies involving 10 people suffering from senility, five totally recovered, two had significant improvement, and three had no noticeable improvement.Insomnia - Niacinamide activates benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, which affects sleep. Dosages of 50 mg to 1,000 mg of niacinamide taken at bedtime have helped many people sleep better. (Niacin can also be used since your body can easily convert it to niacinamide.)
Motion Sickness- a combination of niacin (200 to 300 mg) and papaya tablets MAY avoid motion sickness. Taking the niacin along with two or three papaya tablets about 15 minutes before flying in small airplanes or riding in automobiles can work wonders.
Cautions It’s wise to keep a few points in mind when it comes to the use of straight niacin.Niacin may irritate the stomach lining if taken on an empty stomach, so always take it after a meal.If you have problems with gout, be aware that niacin competes with the excretion of uric acid. Thus, large dosages could precipitate a gout attack.In general, avoid using the time-released forms of vitamins altogether.
