The following doses have been studied in scientific research: (Medline Plus)
· For high cholesterol: The effects of niacin are dose-dependent. The biggest increases in HDL and decreases in triglycerides occur at 1200-1500 mg/day. Niacin’s greatest effects on LDL occur at 2000-3000 mg/day.
· To prevent heart disease in people with high cholesterol: Niacin 4 grams daily.
· For preventing and treating vitamin B3 deficiency: Doses of nicotinic acid and niacinamide are considered equivalent. For mild vitamin B3 deficiency, niacin or niacinamide 50-100 mg per day is used. For pellagra in adults, niacin or niacinamide 300-500 mg daily is given in divided doses. For pellagra in children, niacin or niacinamide 100-300 mg daily is given in divided doses. For Hartnup disease, niacin or niacinamide 50-200 mg daily.
· For reducing fluid loss caused by cholera toxin: Niacin 2 grams daily.
· To prevent type 1 diabetes in high-risk children: Sustained-release niacinamide 1.2 grams/m˛ (body surface area) per day.
· To slow disease progression of newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes: Niacinamide 25 mg/kg daily.
· For treating osteoarthritis: Niacinamide 3 grams per day in divided doses.
· For reduced risk of cataracts: A daily dietary intake of approximately 44 mg of niacin.
· For preventing Alzheimer’s disease: 17-45 mg of niacin from food and multivitamins. Food sources high in niacin include meat, fish, beans, nuts, coffee, and fortified grains and cereals. Note that there is no reliable evidence that taking a stand-alone niacin supplement will help to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
