Cardio Essentials Niacin SR supports cardiovascular health by promoting healthy lipid metabolism.◆ Niacin, also known as nicotinic acid, has been used for many decades to support heart health, endothelial function, and immune function.◆ Extensive clinical studies show that sustained release versions of niacin promote reduced facial flushing.◆
The ingredients in Cardio Essentials Niacin SR are dosed in a manner that is congruous with what research suggests to be effective and safe, particularly for supporting cardiovascular health.◆
Clinical evidence and research cited herein shows that the ingredients in Cardio Essentials Niacin SR may:
• Support cardiovascular health◆
• Support healthy lipid/energy metabolism◆
• Support healthy immune function◆
• Promote reduced facial flushing◆
• Promote antioxidant activity◆
How Cardio Essentials Niacin SR Works
Cardio Essentials Niacin SR promotes healthy lipid metabolism.3,4
Research shows that niacin also promotes healthy endothelial function.5
Endothelial cells play a role in cardiovascular
health by supporting nitric oxide production and availability.5,6 Endothelial cells help support healthy vascular and
immune functions critical for cardiovascular health through membrane-bound receptors such as proteins, particles
transported by lipids, metabolites, and hormones.7
Cardio Essentials Niacin SR also supports healthy immune responses and is a potent antioxidant by promoting nuclear
Research shows that niacin’s antioxidant activity promotes healthy white blood cells, which
in turn supports healthy energy metabolism and healthy immune function.8
