Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    The Swanson product has niacin in the form of inositol hexanicotinate. This is also vasodilatory (which you would likely want to avoid) much like niacin in high doses. However, the doses in this product don't look to be all that high so it might be fine.

    Niacinamide doesn't cause vasodilation the way that niacin does so you may want to look for a product that contains that to get the benefits of niacin.

    I personally take Pure Encapsulations B Complex Plus.

    As far as OI, you can suss out pretty easily whether or not you have it with a BP monitor...or if you get dizzy when you stand up too quickly.

    Niacin is one of my favorite B vitamins. I take the "flush free" niacin.

    I take the B vits seperately to avoid taking B6.
