u/Lebijourouge · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Niacinamide has been a HUGE game changer for my skin (I have oily/combination/acne prone skin). The decrease in sebum production for me has been astounding. Not to mention the fading of sunspots and pigmentation, along with changing the overall appearance and texture of my skin. I will never not have it in my routine again.

That being said, I also have tried the TO niacinamide 10% + zinc 1% and it WRECKED HAVOC on my face. The 10% is just way too harsh in my experience and I suffered irritation, dryness, and breakouts with it.

I don't know why it isn't more popular here, but I consider Clear Skin by PCA a HG product. It has really changed my skin for the better. It contains just 5% Niacinamide along with gentle, quality ingredients. I love all PCA products...though they tend to be on the pricier side.

​

Also, If you have a moisturizer you already love, you can add Niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B3) to it very easily. You can buy it in bulk on amazon in powder form. All you have to do is figure out the percentage of how much you'd like to add to your moisturizer (by weight) and mix it in. I would start at 2% and work your way up from there.

Your plan is a solid one. We are on the verge of a Golden Age, where EVERYTHING starts working much better. There are numerous technologies coming down the line, each of which is independently capable of making EVERYONE rich (thorium fission, fusion, space mining, 3D printing to name a few non-AI based ones).

You won't need to do anything yourself to get the benefits of these technologies. Energy forms a huge portion of the costs of most things, and with energy made so cheap it isn't worth it to charge for it any more, 99% of those costs will disappear. Space mining makes anything that you would normally mine cheap and plentiful. 3D printing combines those feedstocks to produce anything you need, free of charge.

It is a bright future.

And as for the brain problems, I would suggest two things. First, try a keto diet. They say that high fat, very low carb diets prevent seizures. That should help you. Also try taking 500mg niacinamide per day. That feeds a biochemical cycle in your body that makes all the cells work better, especially neurons. It is available on Amazon $5 for a 3 month supply:https://www.amazon.com/21st-Century-Niacinamide-Prolonged-110-Count/dp/B004SCKMQS/?th=1

I'm pretty sure this doesn't count as source talk, so here's a link to the stuff I use. Good price, pills aren't too massive.

Anything from 1.5g to 2g a day should be good. People will tell you to split them up to minimize flush, but ignore those nerds. Just take it all at once (along with the aspirin). The first few days you may get a super, super mild flush, but then it'll be gone. Wait like a month before stopping the aspirin, then try a dose without it and see how the flush goes.

u/thisoldfruit · 2 pointsr/Hidradenitis

hi there, please read!! there is hope:)!!

i had hidradenitis suppurativa from the age of 11 until i was 26 years old on my bikini line and butt. It was painful, embarrassing and really affected my confidence. At 26 I finally went to see a dermatologist in Manhattan who gave me two options. the first option was to go in antibiotics for two months or go a natural route and take a combination of two supplements for 6 months twice a day. I chose to try the supplements and it fucking worked!!!! I am 28 now and RARELY get a flare up, and if i do its tiny and goes away quickly.

Here is what to take and how often:
two times day daily (in the morning and in the evening before bed) take 500 mg of Niacinamide and 25,000 IU of vitamin A (beta-carotene).

Here links to the supplements (make sure buy a quality brand) :

https://www.amazon.com/Swanson-Niacinamide-250-Milligramhttps://www.amazon.com/NOW-Natural-Beta-Carotene-Softgels/dp/B00024D862/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=beta+carotene+25000+iu+softgels&qid=1563233280&s=gateway&sprefix=25000+iu+&sr=8-3s-Capsules/dp/B00068SIY6/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=niacinamide+swanson&qid=1563233215&s=gateway&sprefix=niacinamide+swan&sr=8-3

Other notes from my dermatologist:

Although u may think working out can make flare ups worse because of sweat, sweating is very important to help detox the skin!!! Just make sure to shower shortly.

Use a body wash with tea tree oil.

Stay away from inflammatory foods, especially dairy and processed oils.

Drink LOTS of water.

I hope this helps someone. It really worked for me and i am so
relieved.

u/HAHA_Aku_HAHA · 1 pointr/ehlersdanlos

I was so miserable that I tried the supplements before I got the genetic testing. My reaction to it (very positive) gave me the kick in the butt to do the genetic testing, which confirmed my suspicions. Start ridiculously low with both of these. I started by writing down all my current symptoms and then taking them while chatting with a friend. They can watch how you react. Everyone reacts differently to these. Some people (like me) crave them and have a wonderful time, others have headaches and don't tolerate them very well. Please be very careful when you start. If you have negative reactions you can take VERY SMALL doses of niacin every ten minutes as Dr. Lynch suggests. Good luck!

I'm not trying to get your hopes up here, this is just what worked for me.

Here's what I use:

TL;DR: Try adding niacin and lithium orotate, and look into tDCS or even TMS.

I can relate to what you're going through. I've been on Wellbutrin (300mg/daily) for the past 9 years, and I know it helps raise the lower floor of my depression. (I know this because, at the end of a 6-month hiatus to see if it was having any effect, I was worse than my worst days 20 years ago.) But it doesn't seem to do a whole lot more than that for me. I'm also on Vyvanse (40mg) for ADD, which it seems to help, but even though its a stimulant, it doesn't have much of a stimulatory effect on me. (This was true on a prescription for Adderall, as well; often were the times I'd take an Adderal with my morning vitamins and Wellbutrin and just go back to sleep for a few more hours.).

In addition to Wellbutrin and Vyvanse, here's what I've done or am doing that has helped incrementally with each addition. Your mileage may vary:

  • B12 (10,000mcg sublingual)
  • Caffeine (200mg in morning and afternoon)
  • Garden of Life Mood+ Probiotics
  • Phenibut (750mg, followed by 500mg 4-8 hours later)^1
  • Niacin (500mg 4x/day)^2
  • Lithium Orotate (5mg/day)^3
  • tDCS: DLPFC F3+ and Supra Orbital Fp2- at 2mA for 20 min^4

    ^1 Phenibut: only on days when the barometer is dropping appreciably below mean sea-level atmospheric pressure. I'm serious.

    ^2 Niacin: I learned of this one in this subreddit, I think. I titrated up to 2,000mg/day over the course of a week, and I try to take it with food in my stomach. But it has to be the regular niacin that causes the flushing the first week or so until your body is used to it, not the "extended release" or "no-flush" varieties.

    ^3 I only recently learned this is available as a mineral supplement. Anecdotally, 5mg is about what you get from lithium occurring naturally in some well-water supplies. My psychiatrist said 5mg isn't even one percent of the amount they give people to stabilize them in a clinical setting, but he also said I was welcome to try it if I wanted. I've only been on this for a week and a half and it may only be helping me sleep, but at least that.

    ^4 Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation: Did my research, including lurking on /r/tDCS, ended up getting that SSD model I linked to above. My psychiatrist wants me to look into whether Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) would be covered by my insurance (for example, from one of these places), and I said I would, but I first wanted to try this lower-cost, easier-to-implement method of tDCS -- since they are related therapies and target the same neuron areas of the brain, basically. He told me to go ahead and give it a try.

    I have to say the last week, with the lithium and the tDCS, has felt mostly different for me. I think it's everything on the list, cumulatively, probably, but it feels especially like it could be the tDCS making the bigger difference, which I've only been doing for a week now. The device could be little more than a "Placebometer 3000," but I know that I tried a lower amperage (1mA) on Sunday and then tried a different montage (placement of electrodes) on Monday, and neither one seemed to be as effective, but today, returning to the initial one I listed above, I feel back on track.

The active ingredient in Niacel is Niagen's nicotinamide robiside (NR).

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/thorne-research-introduces-a-new-product-niacel-featuring-niagen-to-support-healthy-aging-253540031.html

You can read more about Niagen itself here;

https://chromadex.com/Ingredients/NIAGEN.html

There are many products on the market that contain Niagen.

To get the benefit of the NR you want something with 250mg per dose.

You can then mess around with that and see if/when it really kicks in for you.

Some people are good at the 250mg others go as high or higher than 750mg per day.

This is the top rated 250mg Niagen containing supplement on Amazon.

u/beefSwollington · 3 pointsr/steroids

So is "sustained release" the same as flush free? This is the one I purchased from Amazon last go around and I'm wondering if it's worthwhile or not.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00028LV8K?keywords=niacin&qid=1451944979&ref_=sr_1_2&s=hpc&sr=1-2

u/valentinedoux · 2 pointsr/DIYBeauty

I wouldn't use capsules or tablets in DIY or ready-made products because you won't be able to know the actual percentage or measurement. Some fillers are not for the skin like cellulose gum. It will make your skin really sticky.

Search for niacinamide powder on Amazon like 1 or 2.

u/coffeesurprise · 6 pointsr/thebachelor

I second that Sugar Bear Hair is garbage. All you get is extra sugar in your diet. I noticed my nails were nicer, but that's it.

Just get a bottle each of B-7 and B-3 vitamins and take those regularly. Those are what strengthen hair and nails, but without the big price tag and extra sugar.

u/privateprblms · 1 pointr/DIYBeauty

Has anyone bought niacinamide in supplement capsules to add to a facial lotion? Having it pre-measured would make things much easier for me, and the fillers look harmless. For example: http://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-Niacinamide-1500mg-100-Count/dp/B004FO6ATC/

u/whoisbambam · 1 pointr/Nootropics

weird.

i trust now foods.

i tried this one:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004LVW8TU/

however, i started with their 100mg caps first.

try taking one of those 500mg now foods one, go to the gym, get a little sweaty on the treadmill, and get back with me

:)

cause it burnt like hell and felt like pins and needles and made me itch like crazy

tolerance builds tho.... eventually there may not be a reaction

which is when i start again, i start with the 100mg caps

It's not just fun, it's also good for you.

One a day. Take the recommended dosage.

u/kittiemeow23 · 2 pointsr/Rosacea

yeah I read that Niacin is the bad one but this one says its Niacin as Niacinamide.

Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Now-Foods-Niacinamide-Capsules-100-Count/dp/B000OSUDJQ

I actually ordered zinc that had copper in it too. I got 30mg of zinc with 2mg of copper. What dosage did she recommend for you?

u/Mamma_cita · 0 pointsr/xxketo

Op, I am happy for you as I too used to have issues with my insulin and been controlling it successfully since having lost 40+ lbs that I have kept off for over a year through Keto & IF. I have just added more vegetables and tree times a week I substitute the meat for nuts and 1 avocado per day. I also eat sautéed mushrooms with peppers, spinach & onions. I started taking this non flushing niacin to help lower the bad colesterol at my doctors recommendation and it really helped: Nature's Way Niacinamide 500mg Non-flushing for Energy Release, 100 Capsules, 100 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000I4AIUK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_FzgzCb2TXW1TQ

u/Trs034 · 1 pointr/Anxiety

Niacin, the nicotinic acid form that causes flushing. Most multivitamins have the niacinamide form of vitamin b3, which won't help. Please read about flushing if you try it, so you don't get scared if it happens. Your body might start to get hot/red, starting with your face, down to your neck, arms, and other upper body parts. 50mg is a lower dose. Half the time I flush when I take it, half the time I don't. It goes away after 10-30 minutes (longer when you're taking antihistamines, since flushing is caused by your body releasing histamine), it's harmful, but it could seem like an allergic reaction if you don't know what to expect. (Edit: Take it with food to minimize the chance of flushing)

Zinc (only with food) is also helpful for anxiety, in addition to magnesium which was already suggested. Taurine is good too, but I wonder if taurine has caused me to have rebound anxiety... Or whatever you'd call anxiety that is worse when I don't take it.

https://www.amazon.com/Kal-Niacin-Tablets-200-Count/dp/B00020HWQ8

*Controlling your blood sugar is also important, not letting it go too high too fast, or get too low, trying to avoid high glycemic foods. Your body will release adrenaline under those conditions to help control it (blood sugar), contributing to anxiety.

u/armygirly68 · 1 pointr/Supplements

I take KALA MSM every day. I take Tru Niagen (nicotinamide riboside chloride) ChromaDex every morning. I believe these have helped reduce my inflammation and pain in my back and overall body by 60%.

u/forestina · 2 pointsr/infp

Heyyy. This was me! Honestly not totally sure what changed. About a year ago I started taking about 2000mg of Niacin (B3) a day and within about three days I was falling asleep on the couch at like 8pm. I did that for about a month and now it kind of fluctuates. I don't usually take niacin every day- but I still tend to sleep from about 1-2am to 9am, but that's waaay better than my previous 6am to noon schedule.

After trying a lot of different brands I really really prefer -Sundown Naturals® Niacin 500 mg, 200 Time Release Caplets https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0045EJS4Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Yb.IzbD9XMH83.

It says it's flush free, but it's noooot. When I start taking it after a few weeks away I flush like crazy, turn red as a lobster and get really really itchy. It's bearable, just uncomfortable and embarrassing in social situations... so keep that in mind. It can be avoided by splitting up your dose or working your way up to whatever dose. When I pair it with my morning coffee and some sublingual B complex I become some sort of ultra productive monster, so if you want a chill day on the couch plz ignore. 😂

The other drug that David takes is Metaformin, which is prescription. It's for people with diabetes, but it also works for anti-aging. I don't know how you get your hands on that. He says it's currently being considered for other uses.

u/rao-blackwell-ized · 1 pointr/Supplements

The "normal" version of niacin (sold as just "niacin") causes a flush. If it's flush-free, it's usually in the form of niacinamide. Check the ingredient label. This, for example, is a "normal" flush-inducing version.

u/touchmestepthru · 1 pointr/steroids

I take this one, its not flush free, so it still works on lipids, but since it is sustained release instead of hitting you all at once, the flush is minimized. I don't even really feel it taking 2g a day.
