Cholesterol Cholesterol Niacin/lnositol Hexanicotinate It has been confirmed in numerous clinical trials that both niacin and inositol hexanicotinate (a non-flushing, inositol-bound form of niacin) are remarkably effective for lowering total blood cholesterol levels, essentially by reducing cholesterol production in the liver. An added advantage is that these supplements have also been shown to increase levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. Niacin and Read More

Research has supported the notion that the muscle-relaxing effects of magnesium are helpful for menstrual cramping.
