Somethings you may not know about Niacin.

- Pellagra: Niacin Deficient (requires minimal amounts for set period of time)
- Schizophrenia: Niacin Dependent (requires significant amounts, for life possibly)
- Niacin Flush: This is caused by vasodilation and the flushing of your histamine stores, which is why it can also help with seasonal allergies.
Same site I usual reference in the links, and I’ve read the book “Niacin The Real Story”. it is a very important nutrient.
Came here to say this. Mouthwash should not be used regularly and only as needed, it does disrupt the biome in your mouth which is the start of digestion of everything. Without that bacteria you are likely to end up with gut issues of some sort.
Nicotinic Acid – this is straight niacin It has the most benefits to it, and 100% flush. I used to not like the flush, then my wife and I started wanting it. The nice warm feeling helped us get to sleep at night. Also knowing your histamine stores were empty afterwards is neat. If you see “Niacin” listed as the only ingredient, it is likely this form
Inositol hexaniacinate. – second most beneficial, and is “less likely” to flush. Though it is more expensive.
Nicotinamide – this is considered the extended release no flush, had minimal benefits to it compared to the other two. It is also more expensive.
then, there is one that isn’t mentioned which is tryptophan. It is the precursor to Niacin. It also has a slew of benefits, though it isn’t readily converted to niacin, thought it was worth mentioning though.
I would also add that it is important to get capsule or bulk powder over tablets. Sometimes the tableting types will also mess with the release and that can make your flush less predictable. Having an hour pass and think “oh, I guess I just won’t flush this time, going out shopping and then having a massive flush in the middle of the store can be interesting.
taking any form with a meal will also decrease the likelihood of a flush. There are lots of recommendations for what dosage to start with and work your way up. Start low, 50mg per dose, take it 2-3 times a day. Then after several days I would take 50mg more every 4-5 days until your bottle is gone and then go up to something like 250mg or 500mg depending on your comfort ability level after having a bottle under your belt.
I’ve also found, personally that taking lots of niacin, usually 750mg+ a day I get dehydrated and almost cotton mouth like. That may be limited to me personally though.
Just like we see in children these days and is often touted the case with multi purpose inoculations, there is a chance of over active immune response. Our immune systems aren’t really meant to be activated at such a high level every 6 months, let alone fight off multiple fronts at the same time.
this same type of activity is believed to be one of the puzzle pieces of our increasing number of childhood be autism and other autoimmune diseases. Immune system is overly active and it doesn’t shut off. This is already one of the listed concerns with the mRNA shots.
Now we just need all of that, and whatever else is pertinent to show how other big players fit in, into an infographic of some sort.
All of the information is there, but unless you really care, you aren’t going to spend the time to read through all of that. Needs to be something that can, at first glance or quick look over sparks the “WTF happened!?! Then people can dig in.
I wanted to add another resource that I have used for my children in general before receiving any of vaccine/inoculation. And whether it is the use of the recommended supplementation at this site or the general supplementation an diet they get already, they have up to this point had 0 reactions to anything given to them.
I now the URL and page indicates it is specific to aluminum, though, since some of the recommended supplementation in the link already matches what has been suggested for COVID prevention in general and the ingredients of the current shots has yet to be disclosed, the information could be useful, especially for those who will have to take one of the pharma creations.
I have gone between 5,000 IU and 10,000 IU myself, for years. my last blood test showed that I was at 47 ng/ml after using 5,000 IU for 4 months, and during the summer at that. I have rotated back to 10,000 IU, especially now entering the winter months in the PNW.
Been reading through the posts here and a lot of it is good information.
Vitamin A: it is crucial to know there are a few types of Vitamin A and not only are they typically measured differently, one you absolutely can get too much of, and the other has really safe margins.
- Retinoids: From animal sources, also commonly measured in mcg and distinguished as RAE
- Carotenoids: From plants, and most commonly measured in IU
Retinoids are easier to get a toxic dose of so you need to be mindful of how much you are getting via supplementation and diet. Carotenoids have a much larger margin for error as far as how much you can take before you get to “too much”. So when buying it, please keep that in mind.
Vitamin D3: The internet is all over the place on this vitamin. I’ve ready on NIH previously, and more recently (just before COVID though) that 10,000 IU daily should be the reasonable RDA for it, though, I cannot find this anymore so for those wanting proof of that study, you will need to spend more time looking for it than I did when writing this.
Vitamin D also helps with your circadian rhythm and some studies show it effects melatonin absorption. With that said, some sources say to take it in the morning, some say it doesn’t matter, personally I always take it in the morning.
Vitamin C: take it, lots of it, but split up the doses.
First off, Vitamin C is one of the most powerful vitamins IMHO and there are endless “hit” studies and articles on it. Pharma would be out of business if people used this to its fullest extent. It is an antiviral, and anti-inflammatory.
I was going to write up a bunch of stuff on this, but there simply is too much to cover. Do I link to this site often? yes, simply because it has the most consolidating information on C.
FLCCC recommendation is low, and if you are sick you need and can take WAY more. I’ve personally taken upwards of 30g in 16 hours without issue.
Ultimately though, I would suggest everyone get in touch with a physician that practices Functional Medicine and get yourself tested to see what exactly your body is lacking. There are certain things you can take extra of to give yourself added protection like those listed in this thread, and the FLCCC for instance, however if you are severely lacking in some other place, some or none of these suggestions will do you any good. Especially if you have an issue absorbing certain vitamins and nutrients.
For instance, I supplement like crazy and have been for several years now based on the research I have done and have been empowered to take my health into my own hands. Though I don’t really get ill anymore, at least not as often as I used to or compared to the people around me, I never felt like I was thriving, health wise. It wasn’t until I went to a Functional Medicine practioner and discovered that my microbiome was a wreck due to my childhood and early 20’s lifestyle and due to that there were some nutrients I was not absorbing properly.
Just a month after doing that and getting on a proper remediation (diet and supplementation) plan, I have gone from feeling good and not getting sick often if at all to thriving. It is difficult to explain the difference between feeling good and thriving, though there is a significant difference and it is simply great.
There are other things you can do to help rid your body of certain things and reset it, thinking mostly of different fasts. I’ve tried a 5 day water fast, which was brutal and not recommended for most, and then I’ve been doing Fasting Mimicking Diet fasting lately and have noticed improvements with that.
Something my brother told me many years ago which I realize I hadn’t experienced in a long time was “Don’t underestimate the importance of feeling ‘normal'” in the context of health.
leave this here. Great resource for finding information about nutrition and supplementation to help protect yourself from just about everything.
