Niacin: Check to see if your supplement has Niacin in it. Niacin causes a flush reaction in a high number of people. It would be a likely culprit to cause your symptoms. May be worth checking your blood pressure. Many "natural substances" have products that can act as stimulants. If symptoms would persist, I would see a provider.
