Niacin is essential for our bodies to promote the health and function of the digestive system, liver, skin and nerves. It also plays an important role in converting food to energy. Niacin can be found in dairy products, eggs, grains, fish, lean meats, nuts and legumes. It's a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that any excess is excreted through the urine and continuous dietary intake is necessary to support optimal health. Niacin is most commonly known for its broad cardiovascular benefits, but is also an important nutrient for blood sugar balance, bone health, and cerebrovascular function. Populations that consume adequate levels of niacin have been shown to have better outcomes for long-term health.
Our Buffered Niacin formula is a unique sustained-release tablet which allows for maximal benefit with minimal side-effects. 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.
