Niacin lowers lowdensity lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very- low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, lipoprotein A, and triglycer- ides, each of which is associated with a greater risk of coronary artery disease. A study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that niacin reduced levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation and heart attack risk. A recent study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, found that a daily supple- mental containing vitamin B3 (50 mg), B2 ( 10 mg), and coenzyme QlO (100 mg) increased PARP activity and improved gene repair in women with breast cancer.
