Of all the agents to promote healthy cholesterol within normal
limits, niacin has the longest clinically documented record, beginning
in 1955 and continuing today. Niacin, in the form of nicotinic acid, has
an impressive track record of positive effects upon healthy cholesterol
levels within normal limits. It is recommended by the National
Cholesterol Education Program and the American Heart Association when
diet alone is insufficient to maintain cholesterol within normal limits.
Very few niacin products have been subjected to clinical study. Well
controlled clinical trials conducted at the University of Minnesota,
Harvard University and the Russian Research Center for Preventive
Medicine have demonstrated excellent bioavailability and patient
tolerance of wax matrix, extended release niacin, (ENDUR-ACIN®)
with less than 4% of patients discontinuing due to side effects.

literature for wax-matrix niacin.
Traditional, or common niacin usage has been limited particularly by
so-called "nuisance" side effects including skin flushing associated
with tingling and warmth. ENDUR-ACIN®, owing to its unique extended release formulation, eliminates for most individuals the unpleasant skin flushing effect that occurs when taking niacin. ENDUR-ACIN®
utilizes a unique wax-matrix process that ensures uniform, continuous
release of niacin from the tablet during its 6 - 8 hour transit time
through the digestive system. This greatly reduces gastrointestinal
upset and gut irritation associated with the buildup of localized
concentrations of niacin and skin irritations associated with a rapid
rise in blood levels.
ENDUR-ACIN® is usually well tolerated in single
doses of 500 - 750 mg. Higher single doses can increase the likelihood
of flushing, and can therefore be divided into a twice daily regimen to
minimize the chance of side effects. Do not use ENDUR-ACIN® if you have a
know hypersensitivity to niacin, or active liver disease. Use of any
niacin for promoting healthy cholesterol levels within normal limits
should always be physician supervised.
