Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is a micronutrient with a 40-year history of efficacy in supporting healthy lipid levels, especially high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. One side effect, however, often makes supplementing niacin a less than pleasurable experience, which limits adherence. Some patients experience flushing when supplementing niacin. However, a properly- manufactured, sustained release niacin formulation circumvents this side effect. By using a proprietary, natural wax-matrix coating technology, Lipid Support is released slowly over a six- to eight-hour period, reducing flushing. This time period is considered the ideal window for releasing equal amounts of niacin into circulation as nicotinuric acid, the beneficial metabolite responsible for niacin’s lipid balancing benefits.1-2 In a double-blind placebo-controlled study, this specific form of Time Release Niacin had only a 5-7 % flush rate, making it well-tolerated and highly effective for supporting balanced cholesterol levels.
