The Vitamin FACTS - (Part 1)

Niacin - This B vitamin can be used to treat high cholesterol, but only under doctor's supervision due to the risk of potentially serious side effects, including liver damage.
RDA Men: 16mg. Women: 14mg. A multivitamin gives you 20mg. Some products will give you 500mg. Stick to meat, fish, poultry, nuts and eggs instead.

Lycopene - Two studies, one by FDA, recently concluded that consuming lycopenes as a supplement or in rich food sources, such as tomatoes, does not offer strong cancer-fighting protection, as was previously promoted.
RDA None established. You should still eat tomatoes (tomato sauce is even better) because they're full of other important nutrients.
