Niacinamide is the amide of vitamin B3. Other names for niacinamide include nicotinic acid amide and nicotinamide.

This is also known as "flush free" niacin; it has the same vitamin qualities as niacin but does not lower cholesterol like niacin does, and it may be toxic to the liver at doses over 3g/day.

How can you lower cholesterol with home products?

Regular food can help, such as less junk food and more fiber. Soluble fiber will bind with fats after digestion and move them out of the body. You can also take niacin. You have to take a lot and it can cause some bad flushes, but it has to be niacin, not niacinamide. There are brands of niacin with which you don't flush, but that isn't a home product. You can read about such at www.realfoodnutrients.com/chol/home.htm
