Notes for this study:
Supplementation of niacin (1,500mg) in 30 men with metabolic syndrome over the course of six weeks appeared to increase serum levels of adiponectin (56%) and leptin (26.8%) relative to control, without influencing inflammatory biomarkers; despite the increase in adiponectin, insulin sensitivity deteriorated and blood flow (FMD) remained unchanged.
