Find “ Ageless Skin ” with Vitamin B
A few days ago, one of my staff came to me in a bit of a panic… She’d taken a vitamin B3 supplement and was experiencing an extreme case of “niacin flush.” I assured her that she’d be okay and advised her on how to avoid getting the flush moving forward. Then we started talking about all the life-changing benefits of this important nutrient. I’ve been prescribing niacin to my patients for decades. It’s an amazing heart health nutrient. It could even put the billion-dollar statin industry out of business – if more doctors knew to prescribe it. Unfortunately, most doctors have no idea of the power of vita...

Here ’s an Alternative to Statins for Lowering Cholesterol
Statins have revolutionized heart disease by lowering cholesterol effectively—by up to 50% or more. But anywhere from 7% to 29% of people who take them may be more susceptible to its side effects, which include weakening of muscles and pain, and decide they can’t tolerate them. In a recent study published in JAMA Network Open, for example, researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital reported that more than 20% of patients seen at the hospital from 2000 to 2018 who were recommended to take statins refused to take them, and those who refused took three times as long to lower their LDL cholesterol to target ...

What to Know if Your Doctor Put You on Statins to Lower Cholesterol
High cholesterol is a prime example of having too much of a good thing. Our bodies naturally make this substance in the liver and then transport it throughout the body for multiple functions, including hormone regulation, cell tissue regeneration, and vitamin absorption. When the system is working well, cholesterol can boost overall health. But when a certain type called low-density lipoprotein—LDL, sometimes dubbed the “bad” kind—is overproduced, not only does it block the “good” kind called high-density lipoprotein (HDL), but it can also begin to accumulate in the arteries and form thi...

The 5 Best Ways to Control High Cholesterol, According to People With the Condition
There are a variety of factors that influence cardiovascular risk—but cholesterol is one of the first things that doctors pay attention to. Having high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is “definitely a variable we try to manage, because it’s been shown to be problematic for heart health,” says Dr. Adriana Quinones-Camacho, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Health.
