Best supplements for cholesterol: Two daily pills which could help lower your levels


Niacin

When taken at prescription-level doses, niacin has been shown to help improve “good” HDL cholesterol levels and lower triglyceride levels.

It works by blocking the enzyme responsible for making cholesterol in the liver.

As a cholesterol treatment, there are good studies showing that niacin can boost levels of good HDL cholesterol and lower triglycerides, said WebMD.

The health site added: “Niacin also modestly lowers bad LDL cholesterol

“It’s sometimes prescribed in combination with statins for cholesterol control, such as rosuvastatin, simvastatin, fluvastatin, atorvastatin and pravastatin.”
