Name: Red Yeast Rice - 120 Capsules
Brand: Apothecary 1982
Description: Food supplement with monacolin K (obtained from Red Rice fermented), fenugreek and Coenzyme q10 that contributes to maintain the correct blood cholesterol levels. The beneficial effect is obtained with an intake of 10 mg of Monacolin.
The Monacolin K contained in Red Rice is a substance with a chemical structure very similar to Lovastatin, a drug frequently prescribed to manage the blood cholesterol levels. The lipid lowering action of this natural substance seems to be even more effective than lovastatin, probably because of a synergic activity between the various constituents of the rice.
Red rice fermented is a fermented rice obtained by different strains of Monascus Purpureus, also called red yeast because of its colour. During the fermentation process, this yeast becomes enriched in Monacolin. In traditional Chinese medicine it is a natural remedy for diarrhoea and indigestions, as well as a way to improve blood circulation.
The Riso Rosso Fermentato line by APHOTECARY 1982, thanks to its bioavailability, has many beneficial effects on health:
- Cholesterol reduction
- Cardiovascular risk reduction
- Blood glucose reduction
