    anyone know what's going on here?I don't think my digestion is THAT slow as Itake other sups that i know take effect right away (for instance when i wake in the middle of the night and cant get back to sleep, a few seriphos will do the trick)

    I can't take Niacin as I flush really badly and my hands swell up for about an hour.

    How long it takes to flush depends on a number of factors, such as how much food is in your stomach and how much exposure to allergens you have at the moment if you have allergies. In our family 250 mg is a low dose (we don't have CFS/ME or sensitivity to supplements). My husband has sometimes even had no flushing with a dose of 500 mg when his allergen exposure was high (he takes it for seasonal asthma).
