Were you looking for information about Niacin? Niassan is a common misspelling of niacin.
Niacin (vitamin B3) is primarily used for the treatment of high cholesterol, although it may provide other health benefits as well. It has been shown to be effective at increasing HDL cholesterol ("good cholesterol") while lowering LDL cholesterol ("bad cholesterol") and triglycerides. Some niacin products are non-prescription supplements, while others are prescription medications. Many people stop taking the vitamin due to intolerable side effects, such as flushing of the face and trunk, but steps can be taken to minimize these side effects.
