Dear Dr. Price,

For quite some time I was supplementing with inositol hexanicotinate, a non flash version of vitamin b3
Part of the regimen was swallowing capsules which I found difficult to do So I found this powder of pharmaceutical quality made in Japan It is distributed by an internet website vitaspace.com
and it comes with the certificate of purity
In your opinion is there any risk in using this powder and is it safe to change from capsules to powder at this time The capsules that I use are from Thorns Research a very reliable vitamin company
I look forward to hear from you

Sincerely,
LS

Dear Dr. Price,

Could I please get your feedback about the particular powder which I am thinking to use
the problem originally was that this reseller didn't have references to give out

Based on the research that I did and thinking little bit my opinion about this product had changed

I had a nutrition researcher look at the products that he sells on his website confirm that most of the products based on their descriptions are of good quality

Another thing is that I emailed the person that sold it to me and he seemed to be perfectly honest. He right away offered me a refund.
There are generally some reviews about his website vitaspace. com indicating that people use him but not all reviews indicate that he is the best although some do and other right about small problems like packaging etc.

The problem that I had originally was with packaging that it came in bags but I got response back in an email that stated that the manufacture packages the products in this way
The references could be a problem like you had mentioned to me earlier since there is not much except very few reviews but the country of manufacturing seems to be ok

Another thing is that I spoke to the nutritionist that you recommended from the vitamin company and he said the perhaps he could sell me the powders if I need large quantities
I haven't yet heard back from them
But so far my feeling about this particular powder is that it's basically reliable

I would recommend asking the nutritionist I mentioned.

The nutritionist reply was that he is not familiar with the company mentioned
