When your doctor recommends that you add niacin to your heart healthy diet and lifestyle program, it’s a good bet she’ll recommend ENDUR-ACIN® wax matrix nicotinic acid. Here are seven reasons why:
1. You’ll be taking the right form of niacin.
Although niacin is available in two forms, only nicotinic acid has targeted benefits for heart health and cholesterol balance. The other form (niacinamide) is great for whole body health, but nicotinic acid delivers just what the doctor orders.
2. You’re more likely to take it as directed.
Each ENDUR-ACIN® tablet delivers its heart-health benefits without the high initial spike (typical of a regular tablet) that causes skin flushing. This “niacin flush” is harmless, but it can be annoying, enough to have you saying no thanks to your daily dose of niacin. Many doctors prefer ENDUR-ACIN® tablets because it delivers a controlled, metered release of nicotinic acid over 6 to 8 hours, which helps combat the niacin flush.
3. You can reduce any niacin flush even more.
How you take wax-matrix niacin also helps eliminate the niacin flush. Simply divide your daily intake into smaller doses and take them with meals or with a few glasses of cold water. Avoid hot beverages or vigorous exercise immediately after taking a tablet as these can raise your core body temperature and make the wax-matrix tablet dissolve faster than expected. Plus, ENDUR-ACIN® tablets are available in three strengths–250 mg, 500 mg, and 750 mg–so you and your doctor can easily adjust your intake to meet your individual needs.
4. You’re getting all the good and nothing else.
Each ENDUR-ACIN® tablet is just about as clean as it gets. It starts with vegetable wax, the tablet structure that holds the nicotinic acid. Next, only three processing aids (vegetable-sourced stearic acid, vegetable-sourced magnesium stearate and silica) are needed to complete the compressed tablet. That’s it. No salt, sugar, starch, preservatives, artificial colors or flavorings. You won’t find any of the “Big 8” allergens (milk, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat and soy) or other common allergens (corn, yeast). The tablets are even free of gluten and suitable for vegans.
5. You’ll keep more of your healthcare dollars.
It’s always a bonus when your doctor recommends something that doesn’t break the bank. With ENDUR-ACIN® products, you’ll spend pennies a day to supplement your heart-healthy diet and lifestyle program. And, because doctors have asked, we even offer “stock up” sizes with up to 1,000 tablets per bottle to give you even more savings.
6. You don’t need a prescription.
At first, your doctor may give you a sample bottle of ENDUR-ACIN® to see how you like it, especially if you’re nervous about whether you’re sensitive to the niacin flush. When you and your doctor decide its right for you, you can replenish without a prescription. How? ENDUR-ACIN® products are available as dietary supplements in the United States. What’s more, U.S. veterans can now buy ENDUR-ACIN® products at www.gsaadvantage.gov for even more convenience (and savings). Just type the product name in the search field to view options.
7. You’ll be using a doctor-trusted product.
It’s been over 30 years since Harvard researchers published the elegant pharmacokinetics of ENDUR-ACIN® wax matrix nicotinic acid that set our story in motion. (Pharmacokinetics is science speak for how your body metabolizes the product.) Since then, cardiologists, naturopathic doctors, and other integrative health clinicians have been relying on ENDUR-ACIN® products to support their patients’ needs. (Even researchers request this wax matrix tablet delivery technology because of its ability to precisely control nutrient release yet avoid sugary coatings and other unnecessary ingredients that can confound study results).
Now you know what your doctor knows: ENDUR-ACIN® wax matrix nicotinic acid is a nutrition prescription in a class by itself.
