On A Practical Level... Our Experience.....
In a 15% Sampling of 1800 SuperNutrition users 61% to 88% reported 5 to 7 personal improvements in their health, energy, endurance memory, mental clarity and well-being. All were using the Opti-Pack as the basis for their vitamin regimen. Many, but not all, were taking extra niacin.
For most people this was the first time they were ever able to really feel their vitamins working. Imagine what the Opti-Pack can do for you?
The World's Best Vitamin Value
Imagine all the features you've just read about at a price that's really affordable to you! The Opti-Pack is the highest potency, best balanced vitamin formula in the world, yet, because SuperNutrition is primarily a private anti-aging research company and takes only about half of the "normal" corporate-level profit, the Opti-Pack gives you more nutrient value per penny per milligram than any other vitamin formula in the world, and is the world's best buy.
Opti-Packs Really Do Work!

Niacin And The Niacin Skin Flush
Opti Packs contain 300 milligrams of niacin, along with l-glutamine and a
dozen other niacin-enhancing nutrients, all balanced to help the body utilize niacin more effectively than by itself. But niacin, in larger quantities, can cause a niacin skin flush.
Each of the three yellow tablets contains 100 mg of niacin, one half of which is held for one-half hour after delivery of the first half.
This "two-stage double-release low-flush" delivery system is designed to reduce the possible, incident of the warm-to-hot, itchy niacin skin flush. With this delivery system only about 1 out of 200 people flush taking one yellow Opti Pack tablet at a time. Taking more than one yellow Opti Pack tablet increases the likelihood of a niacin skin flush.
What Does Niacin Do?Niacin Is A Multi-faceted Nutrient
In therapeutic doses, it is the best nutrient (or drug) for lowering cholesterol while simultaneously raising the good fraction of cholesterol (HDL), and lowering the bad fractions (LDL and VLDL).
It is the only nutrient that has been shown to extend human lifespan significantly (up to 11% in a U.S. Government sponsored eight-year study with men who had already had a heart attack). Therapeutic doses under a physician's supervision were used.
It has been used for 50 years by orthomolecular doctors to reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis. Again, in therapeutic doses.
Also in therapeutic doses, it has been shown to improve the conditions of schizophrenia in two out of three cases, and it has been shown to help restore mental function in senile dementia.
But one of it's most marvelous benefits is available at nutritional doses far lower than therapeutic doses, ...improvement of memory and mental function. Here's how niacin works to assist better memory.
Niacin supports the action of a natural enzyme system that the body uses to "clean" the brain of specific brain toxins that accumulate over time and interfere with memory and clear thinking.
The Enzyme System
Niacin is necessary for the formation of the nucleotide enzymes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and its "cousin", nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), that are necessary for the efficient functioning of MAO (mono-amine oxidase) in the brain.
MAO (mono-amine oxidase) helps to eliminate toxic by-products of brain metabolism of the essential amino acid tryptophan so that there are less of these "toxins" in the brain to interfere with healthy brain function. These troublesome toxins are chemical cousins of hallucinogens like LSD that are known to interfere with normal brain activity. Therefore niacin, which is important in many other parts of human metabolism, is also a key nutritional support for the brain.
Gilka L, The Biochemistry of The Schizophrenias,
Niacln and its Effect on Memory
Netherlands Study Finds
Loriaux SM, Deijen JB, Orlebeke JF, De Swart JN The effects of nicotinic acid and xanthinol nicotinate on human memory in different categories of age. A double blind study. Psychopharmacology (Bed) 1985;87 (4):390-5ABSTRACT: The treatment effect of nicotinic acid and xanthinol nicotinate on human memory was compared with placebo in 96 healthy subjects. Forty-three subjects were young (35-45 years), 30 subjects were middle aged (55-65 years) and 23 subjects were old aged (75-85 years). Pre- and post- treatment scores were measured on a battery of memory tasks, covering sensory register, short-term memory and long-term memory. The treatment regime was 1 dragee t.i.d for 8 weeks. The administration of xanthinol nicotinate (500 mg, containing 141.7 mg nicotinic acid), nicotinic acid (141.7 mg) and placebo (lactose) was double blind. Pre- and post-treatment scores were analyzed by means of multivariate covariance technique, the pre-treatment score serving as covariate. Nicotinic acid treatment resulted in improvement of sensory register and short-term memory. In comparison with placebo, both active compounds yielded improvements of 10-40%, depending on the task. Treatment effects of nicotinic acid were predominantly found in the young and middle-aged, whereas treatment effects of xanthinol nicotinate were predominantly found in the old. These results are interpreted by the supposed activity of nicotinic acid at the cell membrane. improving neuronal transmission, and of xanthinol nicotinate inside the cell, enhancing cell metabolism and oxygen supply in the brain.
While the above study was done with 425 mg of niacin daily, the results of niacin supplementation, like other nutrients, begin before the measured benefits level is reached.
This progression of benefits with progressively higher levels is called "dose-dependent benefits" and indicates that some of the benefits for memory begin somewhere before the 425 mg daily level.
So to deliver an amount of niacin that does have some, (as yet not scientifically evaluated) benefits on memory, we include 300 mg in each daily Opti-Pack dose.
CAUTION: If you have never experienced the "niacin flush" it can be disconcerting the first time it happens, so we advise you to read the following.
About The Niacin FlushIn addition to niacin's unparalleled effects on memory, one of niacin's most beneficial nutritional effects is an enhanced blood supply to the skin (as well as to the internal organs and glands). This is called the "niacin skin flush". The pink-to-red itchy skin flush indicates relaxed middle and smaller sized arteries resulting in increased blood flow without additional work by the heart. This in turn indicates increased delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the cells as well as increased waste removal from the cells. This enhanced nutrient delivery system to the cells may be in part responsible for niacin being the only nutrient, drug or herb shown to increase human lifespan up to 11%. So the niacin flush is a very desirable nutritional effect, but it can be disconcerting.
The level of niacin in an 0pti Pack tablet, even with the "two-stage double-release low-flush" delivery system may cause the niacin skin flush in as many as 1 out of 200 people. It is usually characterized by a warm-to-hot transient reddening of the skin that generally lasts about 30 to 180 minutes, but may last up to two hours or more (rare). The flush may bring some itching and may be followed by a slight passing chill as the extra blood flow to the skin returns to normal. Quite often, after a few days of regular supplementation, the flush may diminish. Some people however, continue to flush regularly.
Avoiding The Niacin FlushOpti Packs are available with the non-flushing form of Vitamin B-3, but because this form is not as active biologically as the niacin form, we preferentially recommend the Opti Packs with niacin.
The most effective way to continue to take Opti Packs without flushing is to take one yellow-orange Opti Pack tablet after breakfast and another after lunch and the third after dinner. The gray Opti-Pack mineral tablets may be taken with the yellow-orange Opti-Pack tablets
The most effective way to take Easy-Swallow Opti-Packs without flushing is to take one packet of two yellow-orange Easy-Swallow Opti-Pack tablets and two gray Easy-Swallow Opti Packs tablets after breakfast, after lunch and again after dinner.
Taking more than one yellow-orange Opt-Pack tablet or two Easy-Swallow-Opti Pack tablets at a time increases the possibility of a niacin skin flush.
Occasional Side Effects Of Higher Niacin IntakesA very few people may also experience a mild, transient headache or a slight upset stomach for a few minutes on beginning to take niacin.
These effects usually no longer occur after a day or two.
Also, about one person in a thousand may experience a mild rash (which may last from an hour even up to a month) or feel sluggish rather than invigorated when taking Vitamin B3 as niacin (the sluggishness may last about four hours). These people should take Opti Packs that contain niacinamide rather that niacin.
We Recommend Careful Use Of Niacin For Those Seeking More Mental Clarity And Better Memory.
Obviously we recommend Opti Packs with niacin for people who seriously want to help their memory, but we also want them to:
We Feel Fast-Release Niacin Is BestWe caution niacin users that slow-release and time-released niacin may overwork liver enzyme systems, and therefore we recommend and use fast-release niacin.
