Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???
It is my understanding that time-released Niacin is not as effective as straight Flush Niacin. You can do your own research but I think it tends to be harder on the liver. Also, it is the flush effective that you want so if the time released is eliminating that I question whether it would be beneficial. When starting Flush Niacin you just want to be sure you start low, like at 100mg., and ramp up slowly when the fiush effect starts to diminish. In this way you are getting some flush but not an intolerabe amount. I always used Twin Lab. You can get it in various strengths. Eventually, maybe months down the road, you want to be taking 1000 to 1500 mg. a day, which can be done in two divided doses.
I tried cinnamon years ago but didn't notice any difference. You may have a different experience with it.
