What is Red Yeast Rice?
Red Yeast Rice 600mg by Solgar is a supplement made from red yeast rice, an ingredient that has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. It is the result of fermenting a specific red yeast strain (Monascus purpureus) on rice.
What are the properties of Red Yeast Rice?
Red yeast rice has natural monacolines which have the ability to inhibit the HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme in charge of regulating the cholesterol in the liver. Moreover, it also contains sterols (beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol and sapogenin), isoflavones and monounsaturated fatty acids.
The active ingredient from red yeast rice is the same that can be found in medicines called statins, which are used to treat high cholesterol. Therefore, it can have positive results in terms of treating cholesterol but without causing the side effects of said medicines.
Red yeast rice is also used for:
- Improving the blood circulation
- Supporting the spleen and stomach
Red yeast rice helps to control the cholesterol, contributing to the lipid metabolism, reducing the formation of cholesterol in the body and preserving our cardiovascular health.
