• Enhances Endothelial Function by Increasing Nitric Oxide Synthase
Niacin, also known as Vitamin B3 is a micronutrient with a 40-year history of efficacy in supporting healthy lipid levels, especially High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) levels. However, one side effect often makes supplementing niacin a less than pleasurable experience, limiting adherence. Some patients experience flushing when supplement niacin. However, a properly manufactured, sustained-release niacin circumvents this side effect. By using a proprietary, natural wax-matrix coating technology, our time released niacin is released slowly over a six to eight hour period to reduce flushing.
Symptoms of mild deficiency of niacin may include indigestion, fatigue, canker sores, and depression. If left untreated a niacin deficiency can negatively affect brain function leading to apathy, fatigue, disorientation, and memory loss.
Cardiovascular Health and Cholesterol Balance
Niacin has been used since the 1950’s to maintain healthy balance of cholesterol levels. Since 1978, researchers have labeled niacin a “front-line” nutrient for cardiovascular support. The National Cholesterol Education Program panel designated niacin a “first-line therapy” for support of specific parameters related to balancing cholesterol levels in 1988, further emphasizing the micronutrient’s safety and importance in cardiovascular health. Other studies have shown niacin to enhance long-term cardiovascular health.
Dosage: Take 1 tablet three times a day with a meal or as recommended by your healthcare provider.
Contraindications: Consult with your health care practitioner before beginning Niacin.
