I have been on 4 different 'statin' drugs for 90 days each and they didn't lower my cholesterol 20 points total. The most any one of them dropped it was 5-7 points and all of them gave me muscle cramps or charlie horses. My new doctor put me on Niacin 500 mgs for 90 days to see if it would help. I was warned about the Niacin flushing and rash and told to take an adult aspirin one hour prior to taking the Niacin. Forget that, I sailed through menopause with no night sweats, no flushing let's see what happens when I take this without taking the Aspirin. For 21 days I did so, then one night I forgot I had taken it and took a second pill. With in 30 minutes I was breaking out in a rash and getting so hot I was getting sick to my stomach I took the aspirin and went outside into the cold night air, which felt great. It took me a while to cool down enough I could stay inside. Lesson learned. I take the aspirin nightly now before I take the Niacin.
Ninety days are up, my cholesterol has been rechecked and it dropped from 239 to 200; my Triglycerides also dropped big time 139 to 69. For this Vitamin in mega dose is working! I actually think I have been deficient in B-3 for years, by the way I feel since starting it. Just had to share!
Ask, and it shall be given to you;
Seek, and you shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matthew 7:7
Now the Beroeans were more noble minded than those in Thessalonica, for they recieved the word with the greatest eagerness of mind, carefully examining the Scriptures daily as to whether these things were so. Act 17:11
