    Do they have alpha lipoic acid in them? That has freaked some people out. It can sort of come up and cause a burn like that and it feels nasty .

    I have experienced that if the pill doesn't go down well with ALA. Feels like an ice cube stuck in the back of my throat

    i think as SuperPro said, this would be the #1 thing to look out for.

    I've had some issues with fast acting esters suddenly spiking BP (think propionate esters), giving some really annoying symptoms. BP @ 75/152, sore upper neck, dull headache and general malaise are what one would expect. If or when you encounter these, fix it fast. increase water intake, use nitrates (creatine nitrate for example) to quickly lower BP and start celery seed extract/hawthorn berry (which may take some time to kick in).

    Cholesterol is a bit more silent in symptoms, there's a few supplements that may help out the situation but I wouldn't rely on these for a fit-it-all. Eat healthy and get lots of good fats in, it will help minimize impact of a skewing LDL/HDL ratio.

    Almost all the other stuff you'll encounter is fairly easy to deal with.

    Great thoughts. Another thing. Bring my grandma into the picture here. Always read the good about flush form niacin but she went into doctor and her cholesterol was crazy. The good was down, the bad was up. He prescribed her meds but she decided to not take it. She started taking niacin. And started push mowing her own little yard. And went back in a while alter and cholesterol was A+ and doctor was surprised. Doctors around the states are prescribing niacin as a first resort. But it take a few weeks to get the effects so start it 4 weeks before your cycle.

    500 mg or extended release flush form niacin in the evening is recommended starting dosage. Extended release is more expensive. You can get the quick release stuff for way less money. But since you can get an insane flush/burn, you won't want to start out with 500 of the quick stuff. For me I get a flush at 75 mg. ID start at 100 4-5 times per day and work up from there. You will most likely feel red and hot each time but as you become used to it thus will be less and then each week up your dosage till you have the effect you need. ID think 500-1000 per day would be sufficient
