    First day of stack and....


    Well to start out here is what I take:

    2 GNC Mega Man multivitamins before breakfast
    1 Neurostim +C before breakfast
    2 Trilflex before gym

    30-60 minutes before workout:

    2 Neurostim

    Today got my Poseidon, Leviathan, and Excell.

    I took 2 Leviathan(I know not recommended) and 3 scoops of Excell + 1.5 scoops poseidon about 45 minutes before going to the gym.

    About 10 minutes or less after taking I became flush and hot. I also got some strange red spots all over body. They went away right as I got to the gym. I had a good workout but only did cardio which was 30 minutes of elliptical doing HIIT. 2 minutes normal pace then 1 minute accelerated pace. I then went and shot around a bit....basketball.

    My question is what was my reaction? Is it serious and should I be concerned?

    If you had searched a little bit, you would have found out that you experienced a niacin (vitamin B3) flush.

    It's like an allergic reaction but you're not allergic to anything. Niacin causes the tiny blood vessels at the surface of your skin to dilate. Usually blood cells will flow through these narrow vessels one at a time, but the niacin allows more cells to flow through. The purpose is help clear out toxins stored in fat cells surrounding these blood vessels. When the toxins begin to get flushed out, histamine is released from the cells causing what looks like an allergic reaction. The histamine signals more blood to flow to the site causing puffy, red, itchy skin.

    Relax. You're not allergic to anything.

    But like I said...

    Hello crpav. Thanks for your purchase!

    What you experienced is completely normal and actually healthy. Here is a link to an article on the Niacin Flush so you will better understand exactly what is happening in your body when you experience one.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
