Niacin, vitamin B3, is an important factor in the health of our circulatory system. Niacin has also been used to improve blood flow, in the treatment of intermittent claudication (a painful cramp in the calf produced when walking as a result of decreased oxygen supply to the calf muscle) and Raynaud's phenomenon (a painful response of the hands or feet to cold exposure due to constriction of blood vessels supplying the hands).
It has been used in Europe for over 30 years to lower cholesterol. Niacin works mainly by inhibiting the production of cholesterol in the liver. Studies show that niacin not only lowers total cholesterol but also LDL cholesterol, Lp(a) lipoprotein, triglyceride and fibrinogen levels while raising HDL cholesterol levels. Standard forms of niacin cause a flush of the skin, with heat, redness and itching. While the niacin flush is harmless it can be disconcerting so webber naturals® offers No Flush Niacin, also called inositol hexaniacinate or hexanicotinate.
