Niacin is called “B3” because it was the third B vitamin to be discovered. Supplementing with niacin can help people maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels, an attribute identified way back in the 1950s. This makes it one of the most-studied nutrients for this purpose. No wonder Vitamin B3 Niacin is our best-selling supplement for cholesterol support!
