Were you looking for information about Niacin? Niesen is a common misspelling of niacin.
Niacin is a vitamin available both as non-prescription nutritional supplements and as prescription medications. It is most often used for improving cholesterol levels but may be effective for other uses as well. It is thought that niacin works by preventing the liver from removing HDL, decreasing the liver's production of LDL, and reducing the release of fatty acids into the bloodstream. The vitamin comes as tablets or capsules and is available in immediate-release, slow-release, controlled-release, and extended-release forms.
