You’ve heard the cliché, “when you have your health, you have everything.” It has never been more evident than in these past few years. Diet is foundational for your overall health and wellness. Yet, most people do not consume adequate levels of nutrients to support their overall wellness. (1) However, according to the latest data, nearly 60 percent of American adults do consume dietary supplements. That number increases with age. More than 80 percent of adults over age 60 take dietary supplements regularly. (2)
Not a fan of taking several pills each day? The good news is that supplements are available in a variety of delivery forms. From capsules to chewable tablets, to drinkable liquids and powders, finding your preferred delivery form can make daily supplementation much easier.

It can also happen if you don’t take niacin-containing supplements with food.
In this article, you’ll learn more about the niacin flush, its benefits, what to do if it happens, and how to prevent it.
