Using Nicotinic Acid to Lower Cholesterol
© 2005- Mangano Publishing Inc.

What is nicotinic acid and how is it used to lower cholesterol? These are two important questions in understanding how lower cholesterol can be achieved either with or without medications, and how mis-used natural supplements can be as dangerous as drugs. In a nutshell, nicotinic acid is a form of water soluble B vitamin. It does not require a prescription even in the ultra high doses needed to impact cholesterol. However, extreme caution needs to be used in any use of nicotinic acid, especially if you have already been prescribed a statin class of drugs such as Lipitor or Crestor to lower cholesterol. Nicotinic acid can act as a catalyst for some of the negative side effects of statin drugs.

It is important that the use of nicotinic acid be monitored by a health care professional. Some of the side effects of such high doses can be a flushed feeling or hot flashes. In addition, if you take medication to lower blood pressure, again nicotinic acid magnifies the results and blood pressure can drop to a dangerously low level. Careful monitoring of both blood pressure and cholesterol are important. Other side effects include nausea, indigestion, gas and other gastrointestinal problems. More serious side effects include liver problems and gout or an increase in overall blood sugar.

Nicotinic acid is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol even by as much as 10 or 20 percent. It can also raise the good cholesterol, the High Density Lipoprotein by 15-35 percent. An added bonus is the reduction of triglycerides by anywhere from 20 to 50 percent.

To avoid toxic or uncomfortable side effects, natural forms of Vitamin B or niacin can be obtained through a good diet. Also, HDL cholesterol levels can be increased through exercise. A low cholesterol and low fat diet and exercise plan that reduce cholesterol naturally can be found in The 60-Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure.
