Life Extension Vitamin B3 Niacin 500mg 100 Caps
Life extension vitamin B3 Niacin is important for general good health. Niacin can help improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks. A deficiency of any B vitamin can affect optimal functioning of organ systems throughout the body. Niacin is the only B vitamin that can be synthesized in liver from the amino acid tryptophan. Niacin is vital to energy transfer reactions, especially the metabolism of glucose, fat, and alcohol. Niacin has been shown to boost levels of good HDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides, and modestly lower bad LDL cholesterol. It helps reduce hardening of the arteries and lowers the risk of having a second heart attack for those that have already had one. Niacin has been reported to help arthritis conditions, senility and memory loss, insomnia, sensitivity to the sun, and motion sickness.
Always get advice from your health care provider before taking. Multivitamins, supplements, and medications containing niacin may have an effect on your body, so always ask your doctor if you can take niacin with your other supplements and medications that you are taking. You should avoid drinking hot beverages shortly after taking niacin. Hot drinks can worsen the warm and tingly feeling under your skin. Avoid drinking alcohol because it may increase your risk of liver damage.
