    Red yeast rice to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels and support cardiovascular health

    Choleast-900 provides naturally occurring monacolins‚ phytosterols‚ and isoflavones for maintenance of healthy lipid levels. Red yeast rice also promotes health lipid particle size and number.


    Maintaining an optimal LDL cholesterol level is an important component of maintaining good cardiovascular health. Numerous studies in China and the United States have concluded that preparations of red yeast rice help to maintain blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Choleast-900 contains Monascus purpureus‚ a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. It also contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice– without standardization or fortification – along with the phytosterols beta-sitosterol‚ campesterol‚ and stigmasterol‚ as well as isoflavones and trace minerals‚ all of which can contribute to good cardiovascular health. With 50-percent more red yeast rice than our Choleast product‚ Choleast-900 requires fewer capsules for easier supplementation.

    Natural management of healthy cholesterol levels should involve dietary and lifestyle modifications‚ including a healthy‚ whole foods diet (one size does not fit all) and aerobic exercise. The same enzymes involved in the synthesis of cholesterol are also involved in the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus‚ to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10‚ we recommend also supplementing daily with Q-Best 100.

    Red yeast rice is obtained by a well-known process that ferments rice. One of the natural by-products of the rice fermentation process is citrinin‚ which is a mycotoxin. Although the sophisticated fermentation process used by our supplier results in a very low amount of citrinin being produced as a by-product‚ because mycotoxins can cause inflammation and other adverse effects in the body‚ we provide our practitioner-customers and their patients with the assurance that Thorne's two red yeast rice products contain only a minimal‚ yet acceptable amount of citrinin.

    Red yeast rice is amazing for alternative Cholesterol control. My sweetie was threatened by his doctor to get his cholesterol level down or he will go on life changing medications. In many of my offices, Choleast-900 by Thorne Research was one thing that was giving to help with patients with high cholesterol. After taking it for 6 months, and he got his blood test again, the #s dropped.

    Pros

    Nice alternative to life changing meds.

    Cons

    None.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    My doctor wanted to throw me on statin drugs to lower my cholesterol- I didnt want to live with the side effects! I went to a naturopath and she put me on these. 4 months later I had my cholesterol tested and it had gone down considerably with NO side effects! A very good product!

    I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and put on Lipitor for about 2 years. I started going to a Naturopath and she suggested Choleast-900 and Niacin in place of the Lipitor as she had had great success lowering numbers using these products. I have been using Choleast-900 for about 4 years now and my numbers are perfect...no more high cholesterol...and best of all off statins.

    Pros

    Seems to do the job and has absolutely no side effects.

    Cons

    A little expensive..
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
