Yesterday I tried one niacin capsule. It was 500mg. I took it on an empty stomach and didn’t notice anything for an hour or two. Then I ate some food and everything went crazy. I’m guessing the food got the digestive juices going and the niacin flush came out worse than I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s like a fair skinned person after going out in strong sunshine for 12 hours for a week. There was a distinct demarkation line on my neck, and everything above was bright red. My arms and legs were the same, but the trunk was unaffected. The effect wore off after a few hours, but I was concerned that someone would call at my house, and I wouldn’t go outdoors. I think the Niacin is relegated to the stores bin. I won’t be using it again unless it’s in a much much smaller dose and the experiment really requires it.
The L-Arginine arrived this morning. I’ve took 3x3000mg so far, and will repeat daily untill it runs out or I start to notice something (at which point I’ll back off the loading dose and see if any benefits continue).
The source website says that the L-Histidine has been dispatched, so that should be here tomorrow or the day after.
