Niacin and Exercise work together on Triglycerides.

We all know the benefits of using niacin for promoting healthy blood lipid levels. And we also recognize the positive effects of exercise on serum triglycerides. But what about using both together? It appears that aerobic exercise alone lowers triglyceride levels after a high-fat meal. And niacin alone lowers fasting but not post-meal triglycerides. But when combined niacin appears to influence the triglyceride-lowering effect of aerobic exercise. However, exercise also decreases post-meal blood insulin concentrations after niacin administration, which illustrates the potential metabolic benefits of exercise in persons taking niacin.

Our high quality Niacin is a special Time release folrm, designed to reduce or eliminate flushing that occurs with standard niacin supplementation. Please call 949-600-5100 to order.
