I've been using niacinamide for a couple of months now. I don't know that I can tell a difference but I have so many things at odds it seems. I have been feeling better lately. I take 500mg 3x day, but sometimes it's only 2x a day. I bought the Vitamin Shoppe brand. Derp, what brand do you use?
I use the Beyond a Century niacinamide powder
Tired eyes, like our tired lives
Haha Ci.... jumping on the bandwagon. I can't wait until you see how many supps I took today. Miss I-Hate-Everything-In-Pill-Form went nuts. I also realized that all of my supps are NOW brand... They seem to have the least amount of fillers. Besides getting them in pure powder form...
Brooke, are you noticing the veins popping out of your arms like Derpalerp??

The veins on the back of my hands are always extremely visible, Brooke.
Sunday, June 16
- ??am-??am and not straight through the night... Maybe 2-3 hrs total is a hopeful estimate?Ö Slept from 9am-11am when I got home.
- AM: Can of coconut water the moment I got home.
- L: handful baby carrots while I cooked. 3 eggs w/ a little garlic herb goat cheese and cholula sauce; medium sweet potato with butter and cinnamon. Hungover breakfast of champions.
-S: 1 c. yoghurt, 1 mango
- Carrot juice w/ gelatin
-D: Random smorgasbord: carrots, melon, garlic herb goat cheese, smoked salmon, rice w/ coconut aminos, handful dried strawberries, Enjoy Life chocolate chips. Kept bouncing from food to food, couldn't figure out what I really wanted. Fully expecting and not caring that my stomach wasn't going to like this.
- Woke up very gassy but not very bloated! It is almost always the case that I wake up with a pretty flat stomach after a night of drinking. Maybe alcohol is good for my stomach? By the end of the day though, not so muchÖ And I continued to feel gassy. I'm sure it was the wine. Wine always gives me problems (the yeast I'm sure)
- BMs: after lunch and dinner! surprised.
three gins and a glass of wine and somehow I did not spend the entire day feeling like I was going to shrivel up. Probably wise that I got that coconut water in me so quickly.
Supps: - here we goÖ
- gelatin (later in the day)
- Zn 50mg
- Vit D 4000 IU. hope it will help my acne?
- Niacinamide 500mg
- Mg 200mg
Face: pores look gross. kind of bumpy.
Neck discoloration: Finally found that anti-fungal shampoo my allergist had given me. Washed my neck and face with it tonight. We'll see if it does anything.
Pull up bar. Will be without it for the next 11 days
Cousin and cousin's wife were at her parents' for father's day when I arrived at their house. Look who hadn't been fed yet!
Aww, that kitty is so cuh-yooot!
About the Vitamin D: it does absolutely nothing for my acne, but it DID help me not to get a sunburn, dunno if you read about that bit in my journal (i know I have a lot going on in there) Is Zn = zinc? I heard that will help your acne supposedly, but really be careful whenever you're taking that and make sure your stomach isn't empty. I've puked a few times taking it without realizing I needed to eat first, no bueno.
Your supp list is getting longer than mine ;D ha!
It's possible that D3 helped my acne in the past. I was also taking C at the time which may have contributed... I don't know. We'll see. I clearly remember your zinc episode. I take it sparingly (since 50mg is quite enough for a few days at least) and at the end of the day when my stomach is full. It has made me nauseous before...
God I know. Shoot me. But it is a shorter list than I have had at other times in the recent past... I've pretty much only been taking Mg for the past couple of months and it has been glorious, but oh well. At least I can take these all at the same time... Though I try to take D3 closer to the beginning of the day because I heard it can mess with your sleep cycle if you take it too late at night.
Wait till you see my supplements list! Heh! Too many to list.
So nausea after taking zinc is a sign that you took too much. Not that I like to recommend the NIH as a source of information, but it's just an example and one of the first to pop up on google: Zinc — Health Professional Fact Sheet Scroll down to read "Health Risks from Excessive Zinc."
I bought these 100 mg zinc tablets from GNC and felt sick every time I took them. Took me a while before I googled it and realized that I was taking too high a dose. Now I only take 30 mg at a time, and that doesn't make me sick.
