plement that, when used under the care and monitoring of a healthcare provider, has been clinically proven to raise HDL ("good cholesterol"), and lower LDL ("bad cholesterol"), total cholesterol, and triglycerides on its own and in combination with other cholesterol-lowering agents, such as statins.(7, 10-12)

The SLIM study, published last year in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, evaluated the effects of Slo-Niacin® and Lipitor® given separately and together. With proper monitoring and dosing, combination therapy was shown to have a greater effect on cholesterol levels than either agent alone. Monotherapy with Slo-Niacin® decreased median triglyceride levels 15%, mean LDL 12% and increased HDL 8%.(7) Persons already taking cholesterol-lowering drugs should contact their healthcare provider before taking niacin because of possible side effects.(8)

Dietary supplement niacin is sold in three forms: immediate-release, controlled-release and "flush-free." Immediate-release niacin can be inconvenient because it requires relatively small doses to be taken several times a day and the side effects, such as flushing, can be problematic. Controlled-release niacin, such as Slo-Niacin®, contains nicotinic acid and is less likely to cause flushing. Inositol hexaniacinate and nicotinamide, both referred to as "flush-free" niacin, prevent flushing but have not been shown to have any effect on cholesterol levels. Only nicotinic acid has been shown to have beneficial effects on cholesterol.(6)

Slo-Niacin® Tablets utilize a patented polygel® controlled-release delivery system, not available in other dietary supplement niacin products, which assures the gradual and measured release of niacin. It is designed to reduce the incidence of flushing commonly associated with niacin use.(8)

As an affordable dietary supplement, Slo-Niacin® is economical and often costs less than an insurance co-payme
