No Flush Niacin 500mg - 90 Capsules
The health benefits of Niacin are numerous. Niacin is known to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides, which help to prevent heart disease. Niacin has been shown to actively promote healthy cholesterol levels by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides and raising HDL (good) cholesterol. Niacin also acts as a detoxifier, assisting the body to rid itself of toxins, pollutants, organic poisons, certain insecticides and drug residues. Taking Niacin may even improve conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
Inositol hexanicotinate, also known as inositol niacinate, is a flush-free form of Niacin. Studies have reported significant lipid-lowering effects of non-flush niacin. This form of Niacin is slowly metabolized in the body and is released over a period of time without the characteristic flush that occurs with a regular form of Niacin.
No Flush Niacin can be used to lower cholesterol and to improve blood flow and circulation. Studies have shown significant improvement in the treatment of intermittent claudication (a painful cramp in calve muscles produced by a decreased oxygen supply to the muscles) and peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
A randomized, controlled comparison of the cholesterol lowering statin drug lovastatin (Mevacor®) found that Niacin lowers LDL (bad cholesterol) to a similar degree (23% (niacin) vs 32% (statin)), while elevating HDL considerably more (33% vs 6%). Niacin also lowers lipoprotein (a) (Lp[a]) by a remarkable 35% while lovastatin therapy has no effect.
No Flush Niacin can also help to lower fibrinogen levels. Fibrinogen, a protein produced in the liver, is a necessary part of the normal blood clotting process. But when fibrinogen levels get too high, the odds increase of forming dangerous blood clots, which can block blood vessels and impede blood flow to the heart thereby increasing the risk of triggering a heart attack.
