No Flush Niacin for cholesterol control (100 words)
Most heart patients are familiar with statin drugs, but not many know the benefits of vitamin B3 (niacin) for the management of cholesterol.
No Flush Niacin, also known as inositol hexaniacinate (an ester of inositol and nicotinic acid) is an ideal way to benefit from the cholesterol lowering properties of niacin. The inositol portion of the molecule is responsible for the flush-free effect.
Niacin works mainly by inhibiting the liver's production of cholesterol. Studies show that niacin can lower total cholesterol by 17% and specifically lower “bad” LDL cholesterol by 18%, while raising “good” HDL cholesterol levels.
Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and assists enzymes in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Natural Factors Niacin delivers niacin in the form of inositol hexanicotinate, which minimizes the flushing effect and other side effects associated with other forms of niacin.
