- Helps to lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol.
- Aids in reducing triglycerides and acts as a vasodilator for peripheral circulation problems.
- Only form of niacin that doesn’t cause redness or flushes.
Inositol hexanicotinate or IHN (six molecules of niacin bound to a single molecule of inositol) is the only form of niacin which causes neither redness nor flushes, thus providing all the benefits of higher-dose niacin (500 mg per vegicap) without the flush', now available to buy in vegetarian capsules at Supersmart.
IHN is mainly recommended for lowering LDL cholesterol and raising HDL cholesterol, for reducing triglycerides and as a vasodilator, particularly for peripheral circulation problems. Healthy individuals also take lower doses of IHN for prevention purposes and for the many metabolic benefits associated with niacin supplementation.
Niacin is an essential B vitamin which plays a key role in cerebral and cardiovascular health and which is involved in a multitude of cellular and enzymatic processes. One of niacin's functions in the body is to help eliminate bad' LDL cholesterol and increase good' HDL cholesterol. Its ability to do so has been demonstrated in numerous studies: niacin is the only nutrient to produce a 30% or more increase in HDL, a significant improvement in a key marker of cardiovascular health.
Such is the effectiveness of niacin in controlling cholesterol levels, reducing levels of lipoprotein (a) and controlling dyslipidaemia that it has long been used in conventional medicine, despite its extraordinary, if harmless, side-effects (the famous niacin flush', the result of peripheral vasodilation which makes the skin go red a few minutes after taking it). Niacin subsequently gave way to drugs such as statins, which though not totally problem-free when used long-term, had a side-effect profile that was perhaps more commercially-acceptable.

In the United States, berberine is one of those substances that people just can’t get enough of. Though previously little-known among Western populations, it is now becoming the new anti-ageing and anti-diabetes weapon, because by improving insulin sensitivity and facilitating the transport of glucose into cells, it appears to be as effective as conventional drugs at enhancing the body’s ability to use glucose and insulin and so lower blood sugar.
