Niacin is a natural solution that rivals cholesterol-lowering drugs for effectiveness.
Niacin or Vitamin B3 supplementation is a natural way to lower cholesterol, rivaling prescription drugs for results in mild to moderate cases. Niacin helps decrease ‘bad’ cholesterol levels and promotes circulatory health. It is one of the eight water-soluble B vitamins important for nervous system health and for enzyme reactions that control energy, circulation and hormone levels.
Niacin forms part of the coenzymes NAD (nicotine adenine dinucleotide) and NADP (nicotine adenine dinucleotide phosphate), which play a vital role in energy production, metabolism of fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrates. It also supports the manufacture of many body compounds, including adrenal gland hormones and sex hormones. In addition, niacin helps rid the body of harmful, toxic chemicals.
