Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpureus)
Is prepared by fermentating red rice with the yeast Monascus purpureus. This powerful combination naturally provides a minimum of 1.6% of monacolin K, a compound shown to contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Our Red Yeast Rice also contains a number of other beneficial phytochemicals such as flavanoids, fatty acids and sterols for cardiovascular health.
Food-Grown® CoEnzyme Q10
Is a naturally occurring enzyme cofactor found in the powerhouses of all cells, the mitochondria, improving energy conversion intra-cellularly and systemically. It is also thought to play a role in blood clotting and stores of CoEnzyme Q10 have been shown to be most dense in the heart tissue. CoEnzyme Q10 stores are reduced by the use of medication including statins, anti-depressants and beta-blockers.
