Clinical Study Title:
Niacin as a component of combination therapy for dyslipidemia.

Plain English Summary:
There are many factors for coronary heart disease, many of which are controllable, especially dylipidemia. One of the most effective means of correcting this is through supplementation with niacin. Niacin has the benefit of increasing the good cholesterol and helping to reduce the low density cholesterol, or the bad cholesterol. Niacin also has an effect on the triglycerides and lipoproteins. Niacin is also a great compliment to other drugs used to help lower cholesterol. Most people tolerate all forms of vitamin B3 well, but there may be some differences among those with insulin or glucose problems, and a doctor consultation should be made before self administration. For most people, niacin is a powerful agent for cholesterol and dyslipidemia, and supplementation is usually well tolerated.
