The main ingredient in Thorne's Choleast is a red-pigmented yeast called Monascus purpureus that is grown on rice. Many studies have shown that this red yeast may support heart health when added to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The yeast in Choleast contains naturally occurring substances called monacolins and phytosterols campesterol‚ sigmasterol‚ and beta-sitosterol.

At least 15 mg of CoQ10 is in each capsule of Choleast. Coenzyme Q10 is necessary for basic cell functioning‚ but the body’s levels of it naturally decline with age. Those with a CoQ10 deficiency may notice changes in memory and cognitive function. Supplementing with CoQ10 can enhance antioxidant activity‚ thus reducing harmful lipid oxidation in the body.

Thorne goes to great lengths to ensure that each capsule only contains minimal amounts of citrinin‚ an unavoidable mycotoxin that comes as a result of the fermentation process. Mycotoxins‚ which can be found in larger quantities in many competing products‚ may cause inflammation and other undesirable side effects. Under testing‚ Choleast was found to contain less than 1/20 of the standard rates of citrinin found in red yeast rice products.

Choleast also contains higher concentrations of naturally occurring monacolins. Some competitors may reach similar levels‚ but they do so through fortification (adding monacolins after the fermentation process). Choleast is produced to be in compliance with GMP regulations‚ so that means you can trust the strength‚ composition‚ identity‚ and purity of each ingredient.

Each bottle of Choleast contains 120 vegetarian capsules in order to promote cardiovascular well-being.

Thorne strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. Thorne always goes the extra mile to ensure their dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

      What a great product. After taking Choleast for few months,my cholesterol level went down more than 20 points. My doctor could not believe it and recommended to continue with it. Also it is all natural, so no known side effects in the long term use. I will continue to take it daily and will spread the good word about the healthy benefits of Choleast.

      Pros

      Works for me.

      Cons

      A little pricey, but it works, so it doesn't really matter.
      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      My husband has been taking Choleast for several years now and has never experienced the muscle pain he did on statin drugs. In addition, his cholesterol levels are well managed as seen in his annual bloodwork. Highly recommend!

      Pros

      Highly effective & produces no muscle pain

      Cons

      More costly than the common prescription drugs used to manage cholesterol, but well worth it.

  • Question:
    I may have hypercholesterolemia. Citrinin, a mycotoxin.....more on its inflammatory effect. I've had chronic, systemic inflammation for 20 years; have used many supplements, dietary changes and now bio-identical hormones to address this inflammation. If I took Choleast how might it effect me in inflammation terms????
