The Many Benefits of Niacin (Vitamin B-3)

Niacin, also known as vitamin B-3, is an essential nutrient that plays a role in countless bodily functions. Our bodies cannot produce niacin, so it must be obtained through diet or supplements. Flush-free niacin is a form of niacin that is slowly broken down in the body to yield free niacin and inositol. This gradual release of niacin allows for true niacin activity without the characteristic niacin flush that many people cannot tolerate. Let's take a closer look at some of the many benefits of niacin.

Niacin and Heart Health

Niacin has been shown to improve cholesterol levels. In a study of over 1,700 adults with high cholesterol, those who took 2 grams of niacin per day for eight weeks saw their LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels drop by an average of 25%, while their HDL ("good") cholesterol levels rose by an average of 18% (1). *

Niacin and Brain Health

Niacin plays a role in cognitive function and brain health. One study found that older adults with lower blood levels of niacin were more likely to experience declines in cognitive function over a three-year period (3).* Furthermore, niacin deficiency has been linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease (4).* Some studies have even found that niacin supplementation can improve cognitive function in elderly adults (5).*

Niacin and Diabetes

Niacin may also help prevent or manage diabetes. One study found that people with type 2 diabetes who took 3 grams of niacin per day for 16 weeks had better blood sugar control and less insulin resistance than those who didn't take niacin (6).* Furthermore, another study found that taking 2 grams of niacin daily for 12 weeks improved blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes (7).*

As you can see, there are many potential benefits to taking niacin supplements. If you are thinking about adding niacin to your supplement regimen, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider first to ensure it is safe for you. flush-free Niacin from Now® provides 500 mg of flush-free nicotinic acid per capsule. For best results, take one or two capsules per day with food or as directed by your healthcare provider.

Suggested Usage: Take 1 capsule daily as needed, with a meal.
