Product Description: Red rice yeast extract

Red rice yeast extract Red rice yeast reduces cholesterol levels because it contains, among many other chemicals, one of the statin drugs. (The statin drugs, the most effective cholesterol-lowering agents used in medicine today, were originally derived from yeast products.) Red rice yeast just happens to contain one of the most popular statin drugs on the market today lovastatin. In fact, when red rice yeast was found to contain lovastatin, the FDA moved to make red rice yeast (often sold as Cholestin in earlier times) a regulable drug, and thus remove it from the unregulated shelves of the health food store.Red yeast rice has been used in China for centuries as both a food and as a medicinal substance. It is made by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus over red rice. In Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is used to promote blood circulation, soothe upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen, a body organ that destroys old blood cells and filters foreign substances. In addition, this dietary supplement has been used traditionally for bruised muscles, hangovers, indigestion, and colic in infants. Recently, it has been discovered that red yeast rice contains substances that are similar to prescription medications that lower cholesterol. There is also growing interest in evaluating red yeast rice for use as a natural food dye and/or preservative. Hello~This is Catherine with Kangxi Biotechnology Co.,Ltd.We are a factory from china specializing in Plant Extracts for over 10 years.High quality and excellent price, enjoying a high reputation at home and abroad.Above information is only for your reference, we have varies types of plant& herb extracts, once you are intersted, do not hesitate to contact with me~Tel:86-15801935090Will try my best to satisify you!!!
