Choleast (Red Yeast Rice) helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and healthy lipid particle size and number. It includes CoQ10 for added antioxidant support. Maintaining an optimal LDL cholesterol 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 contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg of CoQ10 per capsule. In addition, CoQ10 provides antioxidant support.

Safety Information

If pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive, do not use this product. Other warnings: Red yeast rice can cause gastritis, abdominal discomfort, and elevated liver enzymes. It is possible that reactions similar to those caused by HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor drugs (statins) can be caused by red yeast; however, those adverse reactions have not been reported for red yeast rice extracts. This product may cause a temporary and harmless red coloring of the stool.

Indications

Choleast (red yeast rice powder) is derived from Monascus purpureus WENT, an organism grown on rice. After centuries of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it was discovered that red yeast rice is a potent inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase), the rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol synthesis. The fatty acids, phytosterols, isoflavones, and proteins in Choleast help maintain a healthful balance of cholesterol and related blood lipids in the body. Thorne Research's Choleast combines red yeast rice powder with coenzyme Q10.
