Niacin For Heart Health And Cholesterol
by Pieternel Van Giersbergen
diet through foods or supplements

- Take 4-6 tablespoons of psyllium each day

- Add lecithin (Pieternel..dosage?)

- A multivitamin to compensate for the minerals and vitamins that bond to the toxins
that the psyllium sweeps out.

- Monitor your cholesterol regularly and ask your doctor for the ratio about good and
bad cholesterol.

We need 15 mg. of niacin a day to keep our heart healthy (and gain other health
benefits as well). The best way to do this is with the following niacin-rich foods: beef
liver, brewer's yeast, broccoli, carrots, cheese, corn flour, dandelion greens, dates,
eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, pork, potatoes, tomatoes, wheat germ, and whole wheat
products.

Herbs containing niacin are: Alfa alfa, burdock root, catnip, cayenne, chamomile,
chickweed, eyebright, fennel seed, hops, licorice, mullein, nettle, oat straw, parsley,
peppermint, raspberry leaf, red clover, rose hips, slippery elm and yellow dock.
Research shows that 15 mg. of niacin improves mental functioning as well.

Niacin is Vitamin B3, which is necessary for proper circulation, for the nervous system
and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It helps the digestive
system, improves circulation, and can be helpful in mental illnesses. It also enhances
the memory and plays a role in the synthesis of sex hormones.

Being Careful

A "niacin flush" may occur after the intake of niacin supplements. A rash may appear
on the skin, usually lasting a few minutes, which is in most cases harmless. Dosages
over 500 mg./day may cause liver damage if taken for a prolonged period of time.
People with high blood pressure and ulcers should be closely supervised by a physician
when taking niacin.

A heart quote from J Krisnamurti:

The moment you have in your heart this extra ordinairy thing called love and feel the
depth, the delight, the ecstacy of it, you will discover that for you the world is
transformed.

Warmly, Pieternel van Giersbergen.
