Nialor is a niacin based cholesterol-controlling supplement produced by Arizona Pharmaceuticals. The official website looks more like a prescription medication website than a supplement website. Arizona Pharmaceuticals includes links to potential drug interactions and even mentions speaking with a doctor “before combining Nialor with other prescription medication.” This statement alone leads the visitor to believe Nialor is available only by prescription, but further down in the description Nialor is clearly available with no prescription.

List of Ingredients

Crystalline Niacin, Standardized Sylibum Marianum, Sugar Cane Policosanol, Calcium Phosphate, Cellulose, Stearic Acid, Croscarmelose Cellulose, ,Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide.

Product Features

Nialor is formulated to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. High unhealthy cholesterol levels can lead to various health issues and heart problems including heart attack, stroke and death. The only ingredient pushed in the Nialor supplement is niacin. Niacin is supposed to work to naturally correct cholesterol and triglyceride levels within three months of use. A two-pack of Nialor covers that three-month period.

Standardized Sylibum Marianum is nothing more than Milk Thistle. Milk Thistle has no effect on niacin reactions on cholesterol, but Nialor claims Milk Thistle helps to ease the flushing side effect associated with taking high levels of niacin several times a day. The flushing reaction can last for one to four hours. With multiple doses of niacin every day, flushing could be a constant problem. Other potential side effects listed on the website include upset stomach.

Arizona Pharmaceuticals does not need to push Nialor as if it were a prescription medication. Clinical studies support niacin’ s use in lowering cholesterol. When patients were given between 1000 and 2000 mg of niacin three times a day, cholesterol levels lowered. Nialor does not reveal how much niacin is included in Nialor.

Nialor sells for $59.99 for a three-month supply. Studies have shown a 90% reduction in flushing when niacin is taken with aspirin. Over the counter Vitamin B3 or niacin can be purchased for less than $5.00.

Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important to heart and cardiovascular health. Nialor contains niacin, which has been proven to reduce triglycerides and cholesterol numbers effectively on humans. Over the counter niacin sells for less than $5.00 and when taken with aspirin, most people never feel the flushing side effect common with niacin. Dieters looking to improve cholesterol levels may wish to choose a good B-Complex or niacin supplement instead of Nialor and save quite a few dollars.

    I have been taken Nialor for almost 2 years my trygleceride were 500 last month they were 67 my cholesterol went from 233 to 167 now. As for flushing it only happen if do not take it after a full meal otherwise no problem. I strongly recommended I have no side effect at all.

    I had taken this product and found that the niacin flushing was burning and uncomfortable and turned my skin red for a few hours. Make sure you take it with food.

    My triglycerides were 600 and Cholesterol was 320, and BP was 175/90. I only took 1 500 mg Nialor per day, and in 3 months my triglycerides were 140 Cholesterol 200 but HDL was 69 up from 40. I also went on a very restricted low sodium diet, and my BP is now consistently 144/70. It does say the dosage on my bottles, it’s 500 mgs per capsule, which is all I take per day, after my last meal of the day. I have gotten use to the flushing…it beats taking cholesterol and triglyceride meds for sure. Also we were moving and I had been eating fast food 3 meals a day for about a month when my labs were done. I normally do not ever eat fast food. Back eating right again, and am eager to see how my next labs turn out. I highly recommend this product and am purchasing it for my Mom, Brother and Children who all also have these issues.

    What can I take over the counter that lower my (299) triglycerides without harming the liver?


  • 7

    I have taken 500 of niacin twice a day. It increased my HDL by 10 points from 40 to 50 I have test of my liver because I also take a statin that does not help my hdl. I think Niacin does what it is supposed to.

    I refuse to take statins to lower my triglycerides because I have read patient’s med reports indicating serious liver problems. What are the dangers to the liver/overall body of this supplement ?



    I would also like to know the dangers to the overall body/liver of this supplement.

    Nialor bottle reports that each tablet contains 500 mg of niacin. The above article indicates that they don’t report niacin amount!
