Niacin Cholesterol Control and Eases Arthritis Pain

Niacin, or vitamin B-3, is effective in lowering cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Niacin helps reduce cholesterol by inhibiting very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) secretion in the bloodstream. Although the normal vitamin dose of niacin is only 20 mg, the dose required to reduce cholesterol levels is at least 500 mg each day. The dose of Niacin necessary to lower cholesterol varies among patients. Usually, the effective dose is approximately 1000-1500mg/day.

Some studies show that vitamin B3, as niacinamide, may improve arthritis symptoms, including increasing joint mobility. Researchers speculate that niacinamide may aid cartilage repair (damage to joint cartilage causes arthritis). Additional research is needed to fully understand how vitamin B3 benefits people with osteoarthritis. It does appear, however, that niacinamide must be used for at least 3 weeks before the benefits described are seen. Researchers suggest that long-term use (1 to 3 years) may slow the progression of the disease.

There is Niacin and then there is Niacin made with Hexanicotinate, a very special Niacin. While its effects are the same as regular Niacin, it is faster working and better; its lasting results are obtained, especially in the regulation of high cholesterol.

Niacin is necessary for a healthy nervous system and brain function. Those that are low on Niacin could have negative personality changes.

Taking a B-Complex along with Niacin will make its effect better. Some of the important improvements in the health as a result of taking Niacin are: helps counteract arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), helps reduce cholesterol, helps increase circulation, helps reduce high blood pressure, helps reduce migraine headaches and helps reduce confusion.

Some people, especially those that need Niacin, may experience reddening (Flushing) of the skin and possibly some itching. No need to be alarmed, it usually lasts for 20 to 30 minutes and a relaxed feeling is usually obtained from this. The Hexanicotinate part of this Niacin can help ward off much of this flushing.
