    Any of you guys supplement Niacin?

    I just picked up some no-flush niacin and was planning on taking it a 2 hrs before workouts to help with the cellular conversion of food to energy..

    I didn't know it was used for anything other than raising your HDL. What do you guys use it for?

    Niacin is in a lot of shit. For example, it's simply in things like your basic vitamens- IE Centrum, etc. It's also in male enchancement products like enzyte, etc.

    I take the prescription strength stuff to elevate my HDL cholesterol (the good stuff). It's called Niaspan. I'm on 1000mg/day.

    For those of you taking it:

    Pop an 81mg aspirin when you take the Niacin to help alleviate the flushing and burning. Also, it's better to take it at bedtime if you do have issues with it.

    What are you guys taking it for other than for raising HDL, and do you know the mechanism of action?
