Red Yeast Rice Plus | 180 caps
Maintain healthy cholesterol levels naturally. A fermented rice product, red yeast rice contains the natural chemical monocolin K, identical to statin drugs. Added plant sterols decrease cholesterol absorption, allowing the two to work synergistically to help lower total and LDL cholesterol in the blood to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
- Helps lower LDL and total cholesterol blood levels
- Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
- Reduces dietary cholesterol absorption
- Reduces arterial buildup and other risk factors associated with heart disease and stroke
Red Yeast Rice has been used traditionally in Asia for centuries. Also referred to as red rice koji, it is made by culturing rice with the yeast Monascus purpureus, resulting in a bright reddish-purple fermented rice. This is a food preparation technique that dates back over 2,300 years.
This fermented, yeasted rice contains substances called monacolins. One of them, monacolin K, is chemically identical to the active ingredient in the cholesterol-lowering drug lovastatin. This in theory makes red yeast rice a natural source of this cholesterol-reducing substance, that decreases the production of cholesterol by the liver.
Plant sterols, a type of phytosteroid (steroid-like molecules made by plants), also are known for their LDL cholesterol lowering effects. They are molecularly quite similar to cholesterol, and work by competing for cholesterol absorption in the gut.
As Organika’s formula contains 500mg of red yeast rice and 150mg of free plant sterol, it is a completely natural way of lowering total blood cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, both of which are risk factors towards heart disease and stroke.
