Nature's Plus Red Yeast Rice capsules with 600mg of red yeast rice may help lower high cholesterol levels.
Red yeast rice extract, also known as Monascus purpureus, is rice that has been fermented by red yeast. Red Yeast Rice contains Monacolin K which naturally helps to balance the ratio of HDLs to LDLs by inhibiting the action of HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme responsible for cholesterol synthesis in the liver.
Red Yeast Rice also contains unsaturated fatty acids that support the maintenance of serum lipids within normal ranges. In fact, the effectiveness of this herb has meant that some authorities in the world have been wanting to reclassify it and make it available only on prescription.
Benefits of Red Yeast Rice:
- Helps lower cholesterol naturally and without side effects
- Balances the ratio of good cholesterol, HDL, and bad cholesterol, LDL.
- Helps digestion
- Avoids the use of conventional cholesterol medication which may cause side effects of muscle pain.
Dosage: Two capsules of red yeast rice daily.
