Will 100mg of niacin clean your system?

Will 100mg of niacin clean your system?

No: The dose required to lower cholesterol is in the range of 500 mg to 2, 000 mg or more if tolerated. It's safe to say that 100 mg won't even "clean the windshield".

If u take 7 vauim 5mg and take niacin ANd driNkAwwater and don't take them alot how long will it take to get out of your system?

If u take 7 vauim 5mg and take niacin ANd driNkAwwater and don't take them alot how long will it take to get out of your system?

That depends: On whether you took the Valium all at one time (although 35 mg would be an overdose), or over what time period you took the Valium. Valium is a very long acting drug, and its half-life can vary from 20-100 hours. In general, it requires 5 half-lifes for a drug to be out of your system, that would be 100-500 hours (4-21 days). Metabolites may so on drug testing for up to 42 days (6 weeks).

How much niacin can I take in one day? Using to help cleanse system of THC. Also working out a ton and drinking plenty of water.

How much niacin can I take in one day? Using to help cleanse system of THC. Also working out a ton and drinking plenty of water.

It doesn't work: And you shouldn't be trying. Niacin is potentially toxic in high doses, and doses greater than 1000 mg per day are not recommended. It can cause severe headache and problems related to vasodilatation. Neither working out nor drinking water will increase your clearance of THC, and overly dilute urine will cause you to "fail" a urine drug test. Stop using cannabis and it will take care of itself.

How come there are sites that say niacin can clear arteries and if you get your HDL up it can clean and take out the plaque?

How come there are sites that say niacin can clear arteries and if you get your HDL up it can clean and take out the plaque?

Niacin: This has not been borne out despite theories. Beware of sites "touting benefits". The aim-high trial was stopped early because Niacin conferred no additional when added to statins.

Does non flush niacin work for clearing your system?

Clearing what?: Niacin is only prescribed for high triglycerides and sometimes for cardiac patients with other lipid abnormalities. It's not a general body cleanser and why would you expect such a thing?
