Anyone who suffers from acne should run to the store now and buy flusing niacin. It has CURED my acne completely. I am so happy. I take 500 mg in the morning before breakfast (taking it on an empty stomach gives me a much better flush) and 500 mg before dinner.
When I have a glass of wine before dinner, I make sure I eat and wait a few hours before I take my Niacin (right before bed).
Do not drink more than one alcoholic beverage and do not take Niacin within 2 hours before or after the alcohol as it is hard on your liver.
Niacin is the ONLY thing that helps my acne. I am 30 yrs old and have suffered from acne since I was 17. Birth control pill helped somewhat, but Niacin does a much better job keeping my skin clear and truly beautiful.
The non-flush or time released one does NOT do the trick. The time released one from nature's bounty made my throw up really bad, like 7 times on an empty stomach, it was horrible.
The 500 mg Niacin from GNC is very clean, very nice stuff, I swear by this brand. It is affordable, too.
Good luck, I hope you all have the same amazing, life-changing results I have been having with Niacin. Take it once and any pimple you have will immediately go away from the inside. And then take it for the rest of your life. It reduces cholesterol levels, gives energy, and even helps with metabolism!
