Niacin and athletic endurance events
Apr 22, 2008
My Physician just prescribed Niacin to reduce my triglycerides. Will Niacin reduce my energy stores in events like triathlons? Typically my body is working at about 80-90% of my max heart rate for anywhere between 3-6 hours. I am a male, 47 years old.
Response from Dr. Wohl
I am aware of no deleterious effect of niacin on athletic performance.
