Nicotinic Acid: The Key Ingredient in Niacin Dietary Supplements that Supports Heart Health
Date:12/8/2011

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Among the forms of dietary supplement niacin, including "flush-free" niacin, only nicotinic acid, the key ingredient in Slo-Niacin®, is clinically proven to support good cholesterol (HDL). Slo-Niacin® helps maintain good cholesterol within the healthy range.  Many of those "flush-free" and "laboratory tested" niacin supplements calling out to you from the nutrition aisle contain niacin in the form of inositol hexaniacinate, inositol hexanicotinate or nicotinamide. These types of niacin are not intended for the heart health-minded supplement seeker who wants a form that is clinically proven to support good cholesterol (HDL).

"I recommend Slo-Niacin® to my patients because it includes nicotinic acid, the only form of dietary supplement niacin that is clinically proven to support good cholesterol, also known as HDL. It works, and its unique formulation helps to minimize flushing, a harmless side effect that sometimes occurs with niacin use."
