Choleast-900 provides naturally occurring monacolins, phytosterols, and isoflavones for maintenance of healthy lipid levels. Red yeast rice also promotes health lipid particle size and number.
Maintaining an optimal LDL cholesterol level 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-900 contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. It also contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice– without standardization or fortification – along with the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to good cardiovascular health. With 50-percent more red yeast rice than our Choleast product, Choleast-900 requires fewer capsules for easier supplementation.
