    Or alternatively, you might get a nasty headache and difficulty thinking at all. In which case less is better.

    I write the following as someone with no affiliation whatsoever with NOW. The idea that this company, with so much to lose (i.e., incredible profits and market presence), would sell a batch of "fake" product, strikes me as ridiculous.

    I had very very high liver enzymes when I was taking NOW! niacinamide so I am thinking about this too. I bought about 6 bottles around when this thread starts but never thought that it could be from this.

    ..just to add options.​

    Peterzord, yours seems great, the only annoying aspect is the manufacturing date. Can it be improved? Or at least specify the site of the excavation.
    I know it's a synthetic and stable product, but what is the reason to not obtain one that was synthesized more recently? If it's an unfounded thought, please let me know, but it can't be too far off because on the analysis above they claim it expires after 60 months from production.
