GardeningGal,

Thanks for the feedback...

I do take about 5000mg of Vitamin-C a day - and I have noticed my allergies are less bothersome this year than they normally were. Maybe it's mental, but then again, maybe the C is helping there.

I've been taking my Niacin (IH) at night without vitamin-c - I didn't know the 2 worked together. I'll start taking a vitamin-c with my Niacin from here on out..

One thing I've done lately that seems to help is I've cut way back on wheat or wheat products. I had been having intestinal problems and since I cut back on the wheat, most of it has gone away... I think I may have a Gluten intolerance - I'm still avoiding then adding back things to be sure.

Hubble,

I think I mentioned Dr. Hoffer to you on a previous post. One thing he mentioned was to match the vitamin c dosage to the niacin. ex 3,000 mg a day of niacin and 3,000 mg of vitamin C. With this daily dosage he's seen a dramatic decrease in all cause mortality. Though he does mention that everyone's niacin limit is a bit different. This is a quote from Hoffer:

"A few patients have low thresholds for nicotinamide and nicotinic acid," Dr. Hoffer added. "Nausea may set in with either. They will require smaller doses of both to achieve an adequate vitamin B3 intake. There is a wide range between patients for the optimum dose, and alteration of dosage may be needed as treatment continues. One of my chronic female patients who is schizophrenic required 30 grams per day for a year. On 24 grams her symptoms came back. For the past seven years, however, a gradually reduced dosage to 3 grams has been adequate." "
