There are a lot of vitamins that are essential to your body’s overall health; niacin (also known as vitamin B3) is just one of them. This powerful nutrient can promote cardiovascular health and help slow memory loss. A study found that niacin can also support good vision. Some of these studies still need to be duplicated‚ but everyone can agree that niacin helps your body convert your food into energy. Niacin also repairs your DNA and helps keep your cells healthy.

While rare‚ niacin deficiency can contribute to diarrhea‚ mental problems‚ and skin inflammation. Often‚ niacin deficiency comes from consuming too much alcohol. People with certain chronic conditions also end up absorbing too little niacin.

Since this powerful vitamin lowers blood pressure and opens your blood vessels‚ some people who take niacin supplements tend to experience hot flashes‚ red flushing in their faces‚ upset stomachs‚ and headaches. This happens because most niacin supplements release in bursts—or all at once—instead of in a slow‚ steady stream over a long period of time. Designs for Health’s Niacin CRT is different: it provides for a controlled release‚ meaning that it releases niacin into your blood over 12 to 14 hours in a controlled manner. This makes flushing and other side effects much less likely.

One bottle of Niacin CRT by Designs for Health contains 60 tablets‚ and should last for about two months. The recommended dosage is one tablet a day with meals. Those with sensitive digestive systems may need to take less.

Designs for Health was founded in 1989 by a team of clinical nutritionists‚ and puts science first when creating products and formulas. Ever since then‚ the company has focused on manufacturing dietary supplements that contain quality‚ natural ingredients at effective dosages. It strives to provide the best products for health care professionals and patients.
