HakkerWarning #2: The niacin dosage was begun at 375 mg/day, and then increased progressively over the course of the study, and maintained at a level of 2,000 mg nightly for 8 weeks. This is more than 4X what Hakker suggested taking orally.
In terms of how to take it, you take the niacin at a fasting state (on an empty stomach), since it is supposed to supplement and increase the GH releasing effects of Ghrelin. Ghrelin is the enzyme that the release by the stomach to tell the brain that the body is hungry and needs to eat and get nutrition. So again, take the niacin about 3 and a half hours after taking a protein shake. Don’t take any more carbs for at least 3 more hours. Proteins are okay to take, even 30 minutes after taking the Niacin, which should cause the flush. Just no carbs for a few huors.
The protocol he suggests is the following…
Wait 3 hours
Take Niacin at 500 mg
Wait for the flush
Start your workout
Take your protein shake after the workout
Wait 2 and a half more hours afterwards
Take the dextrose powder and carbs
This series of steps is supposed to increase one’s muscle mass at a high rate.
Over the issue of the flush: Most people who listened to Hakker’s advice believe that you should only be taking the flush type of Niacin. Even if you have bought the right type, the flush type, after taking it for a while, one might no longer feel the effect of the flush. Hakker suggests that when this happens, look for other pill bottles sold which have the niacin labeled as “Nicotinic Acid”. (We personally don’t understand the scientific reason for this claim). The other option to take if one is noticing that the flush is no longer there after a certain amount of time, is to stop taking the niacin for 3 days, drop the dosage by half to just 250 mg for a couple of days, and then go back up to 500 mg.
Jestem osobą niepełnoletnią, chodzę do szkoły i pytanie czy nie będę szedł cały czerwony do szkoły po tej niacynie ? Czy jest coś na co muszę uważać stosując tą kuracje? Zaczyna się na początku od około 100mg witaminy B3 żeby przyzwyczaić organizm, zwiekszając aż do 250/500mg aby wywołać efekt flusha. Z melatoniną raczej nie mam pytań, ponieważ nie jest to w żadnym stopniu duża dawka. Z góry dzięki za odpowiedź wszystkim.
