Niacin is one of the most studied and documented nutrients for support of lipid levels already within the
normal range, especially high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. Sustained-release niacin, as
found in Hicholix, has a lesser flushing effect compared with instant-release niacin. Use of a proprietary,
wax-coated technology permits release that is complete in seven to eight hours, the time that is considered
ideal for a time-release form of niacin.
