Niacin is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bulk value in Niacin For some reason its harder to get regular Niacin in my area and if I do find it it costs $10 for a months supply. I'm glad I came across Niacin from Rugby where I can get a years worth of Niacin for the price of 2 months. It is real Niacin since I'm getting the flush most of the time (which tells me that its working).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Niacin The Rugby Niacin in 500 gm dosage is an excellent product. The dosage is full potency, and the quality is high in every respect. The Swanson price is also a big plus. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Price For a Great Product It's hard to find niacin that is formulated with nicotinic acid like the Rugby Brand is. Most all niacin supplements are niacinimide. Be warned though this niacin is NOT flush free. It takes a long time to build up proper levels so you don't flush whenever you take it. This is the best price you'll find for this product. Just beware of that you will get moderate to severe flushing from this niacin but if you do the research, you'll want this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found an Old Friend I live overseas and was giving up hope that I could ever find this excellent product that I have used since childhood. My sister-in-law told me about Swanson's and now I am a big fan! The service was super fast, accurate and cheaper than when I bought it last in the States 7 years ago! Can't be beat for a business reliability and price: now I will see what else Swanson's can do for me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chalk Flush Rugby 500mg @ 1000 is about the only product that has that mg, and that count for real reasonable rate. Warning 500 mg is A LOT of niacin. It takes time to build up to that dosage or you'll definitely suffer through the side effects of flush that can be as nasty as a bad sunburn. One thing that has me looking for a different product is this tablet is not coated at all. It is much like swallowing chalk. And if it sticks going down it very likely will cause some discomfort for several days. I believe in the health benefits from this high dose niacin and would only change from this brand if I could find a coated tablet with the same mg, (No time release) and same # (1000) at approximately the same price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for years This brand of Niacin was recommended by a lipid research doctor for my mom. She has used it for over 15 years with great results.
