    The Greatest for Reducing Cholestrol

    When my health insurance would no longer pay for my Lipitor, I decided to check out natural supplements. I did my homework and heard alot of good things about Slo Niacin.

    Early this week I went back to my doctor, told him about the Slo Niacin. He ordered bloodwork and when the results came back, my cholestrol level had dropped from 250 to 175.

    At first I experienced 4 flushing reactions within a 4 week period. I then started taking Slo Niacin in the evening before bed and I haven't had another reaction since.

    This is a great product and I am excited to share the news of this supplement with all my friends and co-workers.

    I took this in place of my other Niacin because it said Slo-release. What a mistake! About 1 hour after taking one, I started feeling tingly and my ears and scalp started hurting - actually hurting - a burning hurt. My hubby looked at me and said, "wow." I looked in the mirror. I was totally red - head, neck, chest; like I had severe sunburn. I almost glowed red. My scalp and ears hurt. My hubby said he stopped taking this because he had the same reaction. He got yelled at for not throwing it away!
    I've taken 3 other types of Niacin and NONE of them, hurt nor flushed me as badly.

        I started with 250 mg per day and added 250 mg each week to prevent flushing. I leveled off at 1.5 grams at the recommendation of a guest on People's Pharmacy.

        My cholesterol has gone down dramatically. I am very happy with Slo-Niacin.

          Awaiting blood results and hoping this product helps with my Cholesterol. The first flshing caused some worry because I wasnt sure what had caused it, but its very sporadic and it seems like you get that effect when you eat certain foods or your adrenaline is pumping, still havent figured it out yet. Only taking 500mg a day in the morning with food.

                    After much research I discovered this product which is as effective as my old prescription meds. With Doctor's approval I started using this product and found this product to be extremely less costly. Necessary to do this because my copays had rapidly increased over the last year and I have minimal health insurance.

                          The trick in taking Slo-Niacin is to take an aspirin 20 minutes before taking the Slo-Niacin. This prevents flushing.

                              About an hour after taking this supplement I experienced the adverse side effect of burning, prickly heat on my scalp, ears, neck, and face. I have taken another 'no flush' type niacin product that had no side effects. The extra cost of the other product was worth it.
