Leading Expert's Heart Health Advice: Flush Your "Flush-Free" Dietary Supplement Niacin
Date:9/1/2011

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- People seeking support for healthy good cholesterol from a "flush-free" niacin supplement, prepare to be disappointed – and to make a return trip to your local pharmacy. According to leading cardiologist, Dr. Carl Lavie, medical director of Cardiac Rehabilitation and Prevention, John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute, New Orleans, LA, "flush-free" niacin may not cause flushing, but it has not been clinically proven to support good cholesterol (HDL). It is niacin in the form of nicotinic acid, the key ingredient in Slo-Niacin®, that has been clinically proven to support good cholesterol.

"Many patients are lured in to buy niacin supplements labeled as 'flush-free' to avoid the possible side effect of flushing, but when it comes to supporting healthy good cholesterol, I cannot stress enough that 'flush-free' niacin has not been shown to have any significant effect on good cholesterol, also known as HDL, which is an important factor in overall heart health," said Dr. Lavie. "For those worried about flushing, I have recommended Slo-Niacin®, which utilizes a unique polygel® controlled-release system that gradually delivers nicotinic acid into the body, and is designed to reduce the likelihood of flushing. Studies have shown that taking one aspirin or ibuprofen before niacin consumption may also help to reduce flushing."

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is known as good cholesterol because it is thought to help move cholesterol out of the arteries and in
