Niacin, The Cholesterol Fighter
November 20, 2017

Niacin, also known as Vitamin B3, is among the most well known, and most powerful of all the B-complex vitamins. In the health magazine, Let's Live, Jack Joseph Challem says, "Vitamin B3 is found in two common forms, niacin and niacinamide, and niacin is the more potent form of the vitamin."

No matter what name it goes by, niacin is an important vitamin for heart health. Many years ago, Drs. Abram Hoffer and Humphry Osmond discovered that niacin was very effective in lowering levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, two blood fats associated with heart disease. And more recent clinical studies have reaffirmed this idea and suggest that niacin may have the ability to ward off and reduce high levels of cholesterol in the blood. This vitamin has also been shown to help enhance the memory and help the body to rid itself of toxins.

Dietary Sources of Vitamin B3
Some of the richest dietary sources of niacin include liver, fish, poultry, rabbit, nuts, milk and cereal.

Recommended Dosage of Vitamin B3
The recommended daily intake of vitamin B3 stands at 20mg, but in most multi-vitamins or Niacin supplements, you'll find Niacin is most frequently supplemented in doses of 100mg.

Niacin and Nature's Aide
But we at Nature's Aide recently tweaked our formula to have 60mg of Niacin and 48mg of niacinnanmide based on customer feedback. A rare few of our customers were being irritated by the amount of Niacin at 100mg. They had flushing of the skin and in the face. So we reformulated AsUage, our multi-vitamin formula, to maximize the benefits of niacin and niacinamide, and eliminate the embarrassment of flushing.

Side Effects and Toxicity of Vitamin B3
Flushing might sound dangerous, but there are no known side effects or toxicity of niacin, flushing of the skin is only a side effect that can occur in few people. This again is more of an embarrassment than a medical side effect. Regardless, we at Nature's Aide have managed the issue for best effect for our customers.

And P.S. Thanks for working with us and your feedback!

Symptoms of Niacin Deficiency
Niacin deficiency can result in a condition known as pellagra, a condition typified by dementia, dermatitis and diarrhea. In addition, a lack of vitamin B3 can result in dizziness, fatigue and headache, as well as indigestion, insomnia, loss of appetite and low blood sugar.

So if you are looking to lower your cholesterol to some degree with measured results, you would do well to learn more about Niacin, the Cholesterol Fighter.
