Date:12/13/2012

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Maintaining high-density lipoprotein (HDL) within the normal range is an important factor in maintaining heart health.

Dietary supplement niacins advertised to be "flush-free" contain inositol hexaniacinate, inositol hexanicotinate, or nicotinamide but often do not contain the key ingredient nicotinic acid.  Dietary supplement niacins come in many forms but only supplements containing nicotinic acid are clinically proven to support good cholesterol, or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (also known as HDL).  A dietary supplement niacin that gradually delivers nicotinic acid to the body, like the unique polygel® controlled-r
