NIACIN (Inositol Hexanicotinate)

The Only Cholesterol-Lowering Agent Proven to Reduce Mortality*

Niacin, a member of the B complex vitamin family, is the only "drug" proven to reduce mortality from elevated cholesterol levels. The Coronary Drug Project, an extensive study of cholesterol-lowering drugs, found that niacin was the only “drug” that actually reduced mortality. (Niacin is a “B” vitamin but was tested head-to-head with drugs in the study). Follow-up studies showed that the niacin-treated group had an 11% lower death rate years after niacin therapy was discontinued, but the cholesterol-lowering drug group had an increased death rate. (Example: the Clofibrate group had a 36% higher death rate).(1)

Niacin compares favorably to the “statin” drugs but with an overall better safety profile. Conclusion of most researchers: niacin should be the first “drug” of choice for treating high cholesterol.

Our “No-Flush” inositol hexanicotinate form avoids the uncomfortable but harmless “flush” that can be experienced with high dose niacin therapy.

CAUTION with Prescription "timed release" niacin: Niacin is an inexpensive and proven help for high cholesterol. In typical Big Pharma fashion, this simple vitamin has been made into a "drug." In order to do this, the drug is sold as a time-released niacin. The problem? Time-released niacin can cause liver toxicity and, rarely, liver failure.(2-6)  This effect has not been seen with regular and no-flush "non drug" varieties of niacin.

Be sure to tell your doctor that you wish to use, or are using, niacin therapy. As with other cholesterol-lowering drug therapy, liver enzymes should be monitored every three months for the first six months of therapy.

Dr. Myatt's Note: In 21 years of medical practice, I have not seen a single case of elevated liver enzymes caused by no-flush niacin.
