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.
pure product is provided in capsule form to eliminate binders, coatings
