Can Niacin Help Lower Cholesterol Or Raise HDL?
Also known as vitamin B3, Nicotinamide or Nicotinic acid, Niacin can be found in many foods such as peanuts, tuna and sunflower seeds. Niacin has been prescribed as a cholesterol lowering supplement for over 50 years and has been shown to be extremely effective in lowering LDLs (bad cholesterol) and raising HDLs (good cholesterol).
Many people nowadays are using Niacin in conjunction with a diet plan and exercise regime in order to reduce cholesterol levels in their bodies, and as Niacin has been proven to be the most effective supplement for raising HDL levels - as much as 35% - this seems to be the way to go.
The reason increasing HDL cholesterol through taking Niacin has such an impact on lowering cholesterol is that HDLs actually travel through the blood stream seeking out LDL cholesterol and eliminating it from the places where it shouldn't be. Niacin also recycles LDL and transports it to the liver for reprocessing.
Remember that niacin will flush, for a couple hours. After continued use the flushing will slowly reduce to nothing.
