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.

    Can I take extended release niacin everyday or will it shut down my methylation?

    I overmethylate easily and often need to take niacin, sometimes I forget and
    get caught while I am out of the house and dont have it.

    I am wondering if I can just take niacin everyday just to make sure I dont overmethylate?

    So, Does niacin ONLY soak up excess methyl groups when you are overmethylating??

    thanks

    Niacin doesn't affect methylation. See this post and links.

    Extended release niacin is known to harm the liver. Go for immediate release niacin, and in any case watch your liver enzymes regularly.

    How about via histamine release and methylation?

    Even that appears to be a myth. The flushing effects of niacin are due to prostaglandin release, not histamine. See this review.
