Product Information Menu
No-Flush Niacin contains a special form of niacin, inositol hexanicotinate, consisting of six molecules of niacin chemically linked to an inositol molecule. It is hydrolyzed in the body to free niacin and inositol, which is a very slow process. Its unique properties allow for true niacin activity without the characteristic niacin flush that is unacceptable to many people.
Serving Size 1 capsule
Servings Per Container 100
Niacin (as inositol hexanicotinate)
Inositol (as inositol hexanicotinate)

Prefer to other Niacin Supplements
By Bill C.
from Tucson, AZ
About Me Regular User
Comments about Life Extension No Flush Niacin (Inositol Hexanicotinate), 800 mg 100 capsules:
This product worked for me as well as other niacin supplements without the side effects of other products, especially niacinamide. I continue to take no flush niacin as well as 800 mg of regular niacin, but neither has been effective for me in controlling blood lipid levels in any of the recommended dosages. There are mixed studies on this type of niacin, so I would recommend trying it for a while to see if it works for you.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Prescription Niacin Alternative

I could not take the doctor prescribed naicin product because the uncomfortable flushing, itching, and body heat it caused interfered with my sleep. This product allows me to follow my doctors advice without the sleep disturbing side effects.

No effect on lipids
By Dr L
from Victoria BC
About Me Medical Professional
I too believed that this would be a way to get the desired effects on harmful lipid levels. However, recent research reveals that this form of niacin has no direct effects upon lipids. See [@] This form of niacin may still be helpful for endothelial and vascular health, but this is not the reason most people take Niacin. I cannot recommend it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Follow medical research, Health Conscious, Regular User
I take flush free niacin, 3 to 4 capsules daily, for about 5 years as an alternative to controlling cardio issues. I do not want to use prescription drugs and prefer the flush free to the niacin that creates the unpleasant flush effect. Flush free seems to help to a point but I am also using other supplements to aid in healthy cardio profiles. I also follow good nutrition and exercise.
Happy with my blood tests

About Me Health Conscious, Regular User
I use this product as directed on the bottle and have gotten very good results. I also use Red Rice Yeast with this product as a duo to get the results I am looking for.
It works for me
from Miramar Beach Fl.
Use the product daily. It has worked great.
Fits the bill
By concerned wife
from langhorne, PA
My husband has blood fat numbers and the doctor wanted him to take niacin but no matter which product he tried he always flushed terribly. It made him very uncomfortable for at least an hour. When I started giving him your No-Flush Niacin he no longer suffered from the flushing and his blood test results have been much better. He will continue to take it.

Great product, just one small suggestion
from LA, CA
My only complaint: I can't distinguish this pill from my calcium pills. Same color, size and shape. They get tossed into my pill box once each week and I take them at different times of the day or with different meals. There ought to be a marking or some way to distinguishing every product you sell from the others to make it convenient to separate them at a later time. Thanks
