Quest Flush Free Niacin

Vitamin B3 comes in two forms, niacin (or nicotinic acid) and niacinamide. Niacin functionsin the body as a component of several coenzymes that are involved in many important biochemical reactions, including the metabolism of lipids (fats), which makes it an excellent nutrient for treating high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This nutrient also acts as a vasodilator. Since vasodilators widen the blood vessels and increase the blood flow to the extremities, niacin is used for various circulatory problems. The niacin in this formula is in the inositol hexaniacinate form, which eliminates the problem of skin flushing that may occur with niacin alone.

The efficacy of niacin supplementation for the treatment of circulatory problems is well supported by scientific research. An overwhelming number of clinical studies have shown that niacin is effective in reducing both cholesterol and triglyceride levels. One study compared the efficacy of niacin with a widely prescribed drug that lowers cholesterol, and niacin was much more effective than the drug. It also significantly increased HDL (good) cholesterol. The authors of this study and others have concluded that because of these effects, especially when combined with niacin’s low cost and low toxicity, niacin should be considered the treatment of choice in patients with elevated cholesterol levels.
