Oftentimes, we avoid the very things that benefit us because the effect is misunderstood, however, the discomfort or reaction experienced may very well be the byproduct of its efficacy. Niacin is a vasodilator acting upon the capillaries within the body and stimulating them to open to increase the blood flow to tissues. Unlike some vasodilators that act upon the main arteries only, Niacin’s effect promotes increased blood flow within the smallest vessels that are responsible for ridding your body of toxins. The capillaries are naturally small to allow them to extend from the larger arteries and weave into the furthest part of tissues, therefore blood typically flows through very slowly, which hampers the body’s ability to quickly remove toxins and receive oxygen necessary for this exchange.
A niacin flush is the rush of blood to the surface of your skin where capillaries are widened in response to the dilatory effect. Much like a two lane highway that is consistently jammed up with traffic, the widening of these roads allows a considerable more traffic through at greater speeds. When the blood flow increases, it causes a redness just under the surface of the epidermis often reflecting in a rosy hue of skin, and the increase in blood flow can also create a warm feeling to the skin. Following the increase in blood flow, the body responds by signaling for histamine release to facilitate the removal of the toxins. Recall that anti-histamines are the medication that allergy sufferers take to block this action because it causes itchiness of the eyes and throat. This is due to the histamine’s presence attempting to remove the allergen by promoting inflammation. Inflammation creates increased blood flow to carry immune system components to an area being affected by toxins. So the itch that accompanies the niacin flush is just an indicator that everything is running as it should and that your cells are just cleaning up the toxic trash and promoting your health.
So while that flush might frustrate you, don’t let it stop you; as the old saying goes “no pain, no gain” is as applicable to detoxifying your body one cell at a time.
