Best Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice (RYR) is the product of yeast (Monascus purpureus) grown on rice. It is a major item of trade in some Asian countries. It is made of many compounds that are known as monacolins, which prevent the build-up of cholesterol. One of these, "monacolin K," is a potent inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, and is also known as mevinolin or lovastatin (Mevacor®, a drug produced by Merck & Co., Inc).

Best Red Yeast Rice contains rice that has been naturally fermented with red yeast (Monascus purpureus) according to traditional methods. Produced in the U.S., this product is similar to red yeast rice that has been used in culinary applications in Asia since at least 800 A.D. It is considered beneficial for adult men and women when taken as part of a lifestyle program that includes regular exercise and a healthy diet.

Benefits:

  • High Cholesterol
  • Coronary Heart Disease
  • Potential Benefits in Diabetics
