Leading Cardiologist Dispels the Myths about Dietary Supplement Niacin
Date:12/13/2012

elease system utilized by Slo-Niacin®, is designed to minimize the symptoms of flushing. Slo-Niacin® provides the doctor-recommended form of niacin, nicotinic acid, to help support good cholesterol while reducing the likelihood of flushing.

"I have been recommending dietary supplement niacin in the form of nicotinic acid in my clinic for heart health support for more than two decades," commented Dr. Lavie. "Like many of my colleagues, I recommend Slo-Niacin® because it contains nicotinic acid, the only form of dietary supplement niacin with the clinical support to back its heart health claims. I prefer Slo-Niacin® for my patients because I trust that the nicotinic acid will help to maintain good cholesterol levels and my patients have few issues incorporating Slo-Niacin® into their routine because the unique polygel® controlled-release system is designed to reduce the likelihood of niacin flushing," added Lavie.     

About Flushing

When taking dietary supplement niacin, some people, but not all, may experience a side effect called niacin flushing. Flushing may occur with the use of nicotinic acid, which causes temporary vasodilation or widening of blood vessels in the skin. Slo-Niacin® Tablets utilize a unique polygel® controlled-release system that ensures the gradual and measured release of doctor-recommended nicotinic acid and is designed to minimize flushing associated with niacin use.

About Niacin and Nicotinic Acid

Niacin is a B vitamin that occurs naturally and aids in the function of the digestive system, skin, and nervous system and can help maintain good cholesterol within the normal range. Nicotinic acid, a form of niacin, has been used since the 1950s to support healthy good cholesterol.
