I'm not a big fan of taking niacin on a daily basis and in doses above a gram, for many reasons, one of them is the increase of plasma uric acid levels which i have personal experience. 500mg per day for just a few months send my UA levels to the upper limit, so be aware if you're at risk for gout.

.. for many reasons, one of them is the increase of plasma uric acid levels which i have personal experience.

 

Even with about 3 g/d of niacin-intake now for almost 11 years, my uric acid never increase (~4.7 mg/dl for all these years). Only thing which raises it for me is a little inosine.

 

We are all different. Therefore monitoring regular lab-work is always advised. Especially with high-dose niacin.

 

 

By the way, I don't know why, but all your sci-hub.tw links in this thread never reach the site (always timeout).

Just tried my sci-hub links from this and other threads with three different browsers and they all open fine. i don't know, maybe it's something on your end.

Slow release isn't recommended, since it is harsher to the liver. I started with 150mg and every few days increased by ~50mg. And in short time was at 3 gram. Actually take 6g niacin every second day, to spare my liver even further. Rarely experience a very mild flush only. 500mg increases would been overwhelmingly be too much me.

Thanks that was what I thought, I just could not imagine what taking that much at once would be like. I’m only taking 100.  Going to start upping it a bit.  Thanks

Just a reminder here that sci-hub is illegal and that you make Longecity vulnerable to claims. If by any means you have found a source that is not open access you can protect Longecity by uploading it yourself.

That's up to the mods of this place to decide if merely linking to sci-hub is illegal or not, not you. They are free to give me a warning or even ban me and since they haven't done that so far i'll keep posting articles through sci-hub.

I was just trying to help. Sorry if I offended you. It is not up to me to decide what's illegal about this and I have not said so. Nor can the mods decide the illegal status of certain actions. Not so many mods around here, actually.... :)

No need to say sorry, and you didn't offend me at all, i was the one with the uppity response.

Point taken. for the sake of forum harmony and peace from now on i'll upload the articles myself instead of linking directly to sci-hub.

Looking at papers on tissue NAD+ levels - I don't know if attempting to raise tissue NAD+ level is important at all. It seems like NAD+ levels in tissue is regulated (clamped). Can anyone verify this? If so, then we want plasma NAD+ level to be restored, not tissue-specific level. Also, the age-dependent NAD+ decrease is measured in plasma, I believe. Can anyone double check?
