About Niacin Detox
What is niacin detox, and what is niacin? Niacin contains certain chemical substances that have the ability to dilate blood vessels and also decrease cholesterol levels.
Niacin is a water-soluble B vitamin and one of its constituents, nicotinic acid, has the ability to dilate blood capillaries and encourage smooth and efficient flow of blood as well as improve circulation. On the other hand, the other compound of niacin, nicotinamide, does not perform either of the two functions that nicotinic acid performs. Hence, it is important to understand that it is the nicotinic acid contained in niacin that can work as a detoxification agent.
Technique of niacin detoxification
Most of the toxins accumulated in the body are present in fatty tissue and accessing these fatty tissues is not very easy. However, niacin has the ability to dilate the blood vessels, thereby increasing blood flow through the capillaries.
These capillaries have access and can reach the toxins deposited in the fatty tissues. When blood flows through these capillaries and runs through these fatty tissues, they can actually flush the toxins out from the fatty tissues and into the blood stream. This is the technique involved in the niacin detoxification program. However, one must always remember that it is the nicotinic acid in niacin which carries out the detoxification.
Most important organs and organ systems are supplied oxygen and nutrients directly by the main arteries and large blood capillaries. However, skin and several other parts of the human body are connected by extremely small blood capillaries and these extremely minute capillaries have a higher tendency of getting blocked or clogged because of their size. In such cases, these capillaries will be ineffective in transporting oxygen and essential nutrients to various parts of the body. Hence, few parts of the human body will be deprived of fresh oxygen and nutrients, and thus accumulate toxins.
Niacin which contains nicotinic acid that dilates these tiny capillaries will therefore ensure that blood flows through all parts of the human body, regulating the supply of oxygen and nutrients and also flushing accumulated toxins out.
As a result of this, histamines are generated, since histamines are natural by-products of flushing out toxins, and this results in some irritation at the skin level. Thus, one will experience a flushing effect, which is a direct outcome of increased blood flow to the skin. This is the nature of a program of niacin (containing nicotinic acid) detoxification.
Some of the other benefits of niacin are the reduction of cholesterol as well as decreasing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases.
The niacin detoxification program is always accompanied by exercise, diet containing lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, massages, saunas and drinking plenty of water, all contributing to flushing toxins out, washing toxins away and preventing them from being reabsorbed by the skin.
If niacin that contains the other compound, nicotinamide, is used in the niacin detox process, it will not be effective, mainly because nicotinamide does not have the ability to dilate blood capillaries or flow through to the fatty tissue and flush toxins out. Therefore, one must always check and confirm that the niacin used in the detoxification process is the one containing nicotinic acid.
Detoxification using niacin can be an intense experience. I have come across material which has questioned its safety, something which I am not totally convinced about. If you wish to give it a try, I would suggest first consulting a qualified natural health care practitioner.
