What You Should Know
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.
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.
