If you chose to take the advice of using niacin formulations for the reduction of cholesterol levels make sure you use a form of niacin that will not cause the flushing and other symptoms caused by regular niacin. Chol-X has clinically shown the ability to reduce cholesterol levels using a special form of niacin called Inositol hexaniacinate.
I would recommend initially using a natural approach to cholesterol reduction due to the excessive amount of adverse side effects from cholesterol medications. It is also important to understand that it is not simply cholesterol levels that are of concern, but the sticky (oxidize) cholesterol that is the problem. If you have high cholesterol levels and you take adequate levels of antioxidants such as a buffered Vitamin C, you will be at less risk than having lower levels of highly oxidized choelsterol. Without antioxidants, the cholesterol begins to go rancid, get sticky and increase the potential stick to the walls of your blood vessels.
