Douglas Labs Beni-Koji RYR supplies organic red yeast rice that is known to help support healthy blood lipid levels.
Red Yeast Rice, Monascus purpureus, has been used as a supplement in Asia for more than 1,000 years. Clinically used for supporting healthy blood cholesterol, lipid levels and blood circulation.
Red yeast is the product of rice fermented with Monascus purpureus yeast. Red yeast rice supplements are manufactured by culturing M. purpureus on rice at carefully-controlled temperature and growing conditions to increase the concentration of mevinic acids. Red yeast contains ten mevinic acids, also known as monacolins. Red yeast also contains sterols, including beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, and sapogenin; isoflavones and isoflavone glycosides; and monounsaturated fatty acids, all beneficial to cardiovascular health. Studies have demonstrated that red yeast rice provides support of healthy lipid levels.
Beni Koji Red Yeast Rice is a useful dietary supplement for those individuals wishing to maintain healthy cholesterol metabolism.
CAUTION Pregnant and lactating woman should avoid this product. Do not take this product if you are allergic to yeast or rice, are taking drugs that inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, or have liver disease or organ transplant.
SIDE EFFECTS Since red yeast rice can contain monacolin constituents, red yeast has the potential to cause elevated liver enzymes and myopathy.
POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS Theoretically, red yeast might lower coenzyme Q-10 levels. It is suggested to take 50-100 mg of coenzyme Q- 10 with this product. Avoid consuming grapefruit products, as they might increase the serum levels of monacolins in people who take red yeast. Taking red yeast with other hepatotoxic herbs and supplements might increase the risk of liver damage.
