Drug users about to undergo a drug test have been searching endlessly for a way to beat the system, and a niacin drug test mask is supposed to be one of these ways. Other things that have been suggested are vinegar, vitamin C, aspirin in large doses, activated charcoal, lecithin, herbal teas and powders, detergent, bleach, salts and niacin as a way of screening or masking the drug test results. There has been no scientific evidence that any of these work.
Niacin is a vitamin, also known as Vitamin B3, Nicotinic Acid or Vitamin PP. It has an important role in the body’s metabolic process in the repair of DNA and the production of steroid hormones. Niacin helps promote healthy skin, a strong nervous system and regulates the body’s hormone levels. It also increases the level of HDL or “good cholesterol” and is prescribed for people who are high risk candidates for a heart attack. The recommended daily allowance for niacin is 14 mg/day for women and 16 mg/day for men. It can be gotten from foods like liver, chicken, beef, fish, cereal, peanuts and legumes.
