Niacin has been used successfully in helping give better hair growth results in men and women – but there is still some misunderstanding on what type of niacin to be used, how much to use for hair growth, and how often to take it – in this short post, we will explain this in detail, and why.
Firstly and foremost – niacin must be taken as a flushing type – DO NOT take a non-flushing type niacin – this will not give you results for hair growth, and is actually harmful due to the slow release effect, which is damaging for the liver – and the whole point of taking niacin is, to get the flush effect, which is the medicinal effect of niacin!
Now that we have established what type of niacin to take – how much to take for actual results for hair growth?
The answer is complicated – because you need to start taking niacin slowly – around 50mg a day – for 7 days – then increasing to 100mg a day for 7 days – and then 200mg on the third week, and 400mg fourth week – increasing it until you experience the flush of niacin – some people will feel a small flush at 100mg – but will find that increasing this to 200mg after a week will be still beneficial.
This gradual increase is important as you do not know your threshold and requirements of Niacin – there is no way to test what is best, so we start with a small dosage – and increase week by week – so do not buy the 500mg niacin just yet – order the 50mg one and build up.
You want to reach the 500mg a day – where you can take for long term, and get hair growth results.
If you don’t see enough results after 2-3 months of taking niacin everyday – then I suggest looking at our homepage for the top rated products used for hair growth – and suggest adding those to your regime.
Bonus: Taking a stinging nettle supplement once a day will also help boost hair growth rate and help remove toxic level of excess hormones in the body for men and women. This is not widely known, and is a powerful secret used by many!
