Contains 900 mg red yeast rice per capsule – 50 percent more than our original Choleast (still available), allowing easier dosing for your patients.
-Requires fewer capsules for desired effect
-Supports cardiovascular health by helping maintain already normal cholesterol levels
-Synergistic effect of natural monacolins and phytosterols
Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. Numerous studies in China and the United States have demonstrated that red yeast rice preparations are helpful in maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels. This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining good cardiovascular health.
Choleast-900 contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice, without standardization or fortification. In addition to natural monacolins, red yeast rice contains the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular health.
