Niacin CRT™ is a unique wax-matrix tablet that utilizes the latest controlled release technology (CRT). This technology delivers niacin at a continuous, controlled rate over a 6-8 hour period, throughout the tablet’s transit time in the bowel. Flushing sometimes happens with time-release niacin, as there can be fairly large surges of niacin released intermittently. However, flushing is less likely with the controlled release of niacin.
This product is 750 mg tablets, with the higher dosage of 750 mg being more convenient for those with a greater need for lipid management.
