Red Yeast Rice | Red Rice Yeast

Support Healthy Cholesterol Naturally

Red Yeast RiceRed Yeast Rice (sometimes called Red Rice Yeast) (Monascus purpureus) contains a family of compounds that inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase which is responsible for cholesterol production in the body. Unlike isolated “statin” drugs, Red Rice Yeast contains a mixture of related but different statins that act synergistically. As a result, lower (and presumably safer) doses of any one statin are taken. Red Rice Yeast has been shown to lower total cholesterol and triglycerides while raising HDL levels.

Suggested dose: 2 caps, 2 times daily with meals.

Each (one) capsule contains:

Red Yeast Rice Extract (Monascus purpureus) 600 mg
(Standardized to contain 0.4% [2.4mg] mevinolin)

Product # 2314 Red Yeast Rice (120 Capsules) $24.00
