Niacin for Your Cholesterol Problem

Niacin is a B vitamin your body uses to turn carbohydrates into energy.  It also helps in lowering bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides and for increasing good cholesterol (HDL). Niacin has been shown to raise good cholesterol by as much as 15-35 percent.  The importance of good cholesterol is that it takes the excess bad cholesterol in your blood stream back to your liver for disposal. Having a high HDL level is a great way to fight against heart disease, but having a low HDL level can make you a target for heart disease. [1]

Take 500–2,000 mg of niacin (the regular form, not niacinamide or no-flush niacin; build up gradually and take at bedtime to minimize possible flushing) and check your cholesterol.
