1. Reduce elevated cholesterol & triglyceride levels
a. RED YEAST RICE
Statin drugs are prescribed medicines that help to lower cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular disease. However, with increasing reports of their side effects, natural alternatives are preferred by many. Red yeast rice has been used in alternative medicine to help lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood; which in turn helped in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. This fermented rice contains a naturally-derived bioactive compound - monacolin K, which has the same chemical makeup as a prescribed drug, lovastatin, often used to lower blood cholesterol levels.
In this clinical trial, 62 patients with abnormal blood lipid levels (dyslipidemia) and who cannot tolerate statin therapy due to muscle pain, were orally administered 1800 mg of red yeast rice or placebo, twice daily for 24 weeks. Compared to baseline, administration of red yeast rice resulted in significant reductions in total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. LDL cholesterol decreased by 1.11 mmol/L (43 mg/dL) from baseline at week 12 and by 0.90 mmol/L (35 mg/dL) at week 24.
Compared to placebo group, LDL (bad) cholesterol level was significantly lower in the group who had red yeast rice, at both weeks 12 (P < 0.001) and 24 (P = 0.011). Significant treatment effects were also observed for total cholesterol level at weeks 12 (P < 0.001) and 24 (P = 0.016). These findings suggested that red yeast rice could be a natural alternative for dyslipidemic patients. (Ann. Intern. Med. 150 (12), 830–839).
In this clinical trial, 52 physicians and their spouses whose total cholesterol level is more than 200 mg/dL were orally administered a red yeast rice extract or placebo for 8 weeks. After 8 weeks, the group administered with red yeast rice showed a 15% (37 mg/dL) reduction in total cholesterol and 22% (36 mg/dL) reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol, while no reduction in total and LDL cholesterol was observed in the control group. There was no marked difference in creatine kinase-elevation or reported side-effects between the studied groups. An increase in creatine kinase could imply muscle damage and/or impaired muscle energy production or both. In addition, lipid-lowering effect in the group administered with red yeast rice resulted in lower cardiovascular risk, as measured using SCORE (Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation). These findings suggested that red yeast rice could effectively lower LDL (bad) and total cholesterol, as well as reduce cardiovascular risk. It may be an ideal alternative for patients who are intolerant to statins.
Approximately 10 – 15% patients who take statins reported muscle aches. Red yeast rice which has a good safety profile could provide an alternative therapeutic strategy. In this clinical trial, 60 patients with abnormal blood lipid levels and who are at low to moderate cardiovascular risk, were orally administered either simvastatin (n = 33) or red yeast rice (n = 27) for 4 weeks. The effects of both on muscle fatigue score, physical activity, serum lipid profile and safety profile were evaluated.
After 4 weeks, similar lipid-lowering effects were observed in the two groups. However, the muscle fatigue score had significantly increased in patients treated with simvastatin, but no significant change was observed in patients who had red yeast rice. In addition, the physical activity level of patients from the simvastatin group had significantly decreased, compared to those administered with red yeast rice. The safety profile was not affected after the treatments. In short, administration of red yeast rice induced less side effect of muscle fatigue and exerted comparable lipid-lowering effects compared to simvastatin. This suggested the potential of red yeast rice in managing unhealthy blood lipid levels.
As phytosterols are structurally similar to the body’s cholesterol, they compete with cholesterol for absorption in the digestive system when consumed. As a result, cholesterol absorption is hindered and blood cholesterol levels are reduced. The efficacy of phytosterols in reducing blood cholesterol levels have been confirmed in numerous clinical trials.
In this clinical trial, 153 mild hypercholesterolemic patients consumed margarine containing 1.8 or 2.6 g sitostanol ester (phytosterols) or control daily for 1 year. Results showed blood cholesterol reduced by 10.2% in the sitostanol group, while those in the control group’s increased by 0.1%. Likewise, LDL (bad) cholesterol reduced by 14.1% and 1.1% in the sitostanol and control groups, respectively. These findings suggested that sitostanol could effectively reduce blood total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol in those with mild hypercholesterolemia (N Engl J Med. 333: 1308-1312 (1995)).
In children with familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH), therapeutic options for treating high cholesterol levels are limited. By inhibiting cholesterol absorption, phytosterols could be an effective approach to reduce blood cholesterol levels in children with FH.
In this clinical trial, 41 children (5 to 12 years old) with FH were orally administered food spreads containing 2.3g of plant sterols (mainly sitosterol and campesterol) per 15 g of spread and a placebo spread for a 4-week period, separated by a 6‐week washout period. Their cholesterol levels were assessed after both 4-week treatment periods. Compared to the placebo spread, intake of 2.3g of plant sterols daily significantly reduced total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol by 11% and 14%, respectively. These findings suggested the beneficial effects of plant sterol in improving cholesterol levels in children with FH (J Inherit Metab Dis. 26(4): 343-351 (2003)).
In this clinical trial, pre-pubertal children with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) (aged 7 to 12 years old) were orally administered 500ml of a low-fat yogurt, enriched with 2.0 g of plant stanols and 500 ml of a low-fat placebo yogurt for 4 weeks, separated by a 6-week washout period. Compared to placebo, daily intake of 2.0g of plant stanols significantly reduced total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels by 7.5% and 9.2%, respectively. The results demonstrated that plant stanols are effective in reducing cholesterol levels in children with FH (J Pediatr. 148(4): 495-500 (2006)).
c. RED YEAST RICE + PHYTOSTEROLS
Red yeast rice has been used as a food and folk medicine in China for centuries. This fermented rice contains a powerful compound monacolin K, which helps inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that is involved in cholesterol synthesis in the body; while phytosterols help reduce the absorption of dietary cholesterol and stimulates the excretion of cholesterol. The coupling of these two powerful ingredients helps support healthy blood lipid levels and reduce the risk of heart disease or stroke.
Elevated total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol are a significant risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. In this clinical trial, 18 patients with hypercholesterolemia were orally administered 1,200 mg red yeast rice and 1,250 mg phytosterols daily for 6 weeks. Results showed a statistically significant (p < 0.05) reduction of total cholesterol by 19% (46 mg/dL) and LDL by 33% (53 mg/dL) after 6 weeks of administration. None of the participants reported any muscle pains nor abnormal liver function. The synergistic effect of red yeast rice and phytosterols in reducing LDL cholesterol without causing severe side effects suggested that the coupling of both could be a clinically effective and well-tolerated alternative treatment to statin medications in managing high blood cholesterol (J Diet Suppl. 9(2):110–115 (2012)).
In this clinical trial, 90 subjects with moderate hypercholesterolemia were orally administered 800 mg phytosterols (group 1), red yeast rice standardised to contain 5 mg monacolins from Monascus purpureus (group 2) or a combination of both (group 3) for 8 weeks. After the 8-week treatment, group 1 did not show any significant variation in lipid parameters, while group 2 and 3 showed a significant reduction (p < 0.001) of LDL cholesterol and Apolipoprotein B (ApoB), which is the main protein found in the LDL. Compared to baseline, group 2 showed a 20.5% reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol and 14.4% reduction in Apolipoprotein B. Group 3 showed 27.0% reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol and 19.0% reduction in Apolipoprotein B, compared to baseline. It is worth noting that the change in LDL cholesterol was significantly higher (p < 0.05) in group 3 than group 2. These findings suggested that the combination of red yeast rice and phytosterols appears to have additive cholesterol-lowering effect in achieving a clinically significant reduction in LDL cholesterol in moderately hypercholesterolemic patients.
2. Reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases
i). Blocked arteries:
High blood cholesterol can lead to clogged arteries in a process known as atherosclerosis (build-up of fatty deposits in artery wall). Progressively and silently, atherosclerosis grows cholesterol plaques, which may rupture and trigger blood clot formation. This sudden clotting restricts blood flow and can trigger a heart attack, stroke or sudden cardiac death.
In this animal test, mice were orally administered 600 – 1,200 mg/kg of red yeast rice extract for 8 weeks. Results showed that this extract significantly and dose-dependently inhibited vulnerable plaque progression, decreased the plaque area and improved plaque stability. In addition, in vitro study also showed that red yeast rice extract suppressed activation of NF-κB (a central mediator of inflammation that is involved in the molecular links between inflammatory and blood clotting processes). These findings suggested the beneficial effects of red yeast rice in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
ii) Arterial stiffness:
Arterial stiffness or rigidity of the arterial wall occurs as a consequence of biological ageing and thickening, hardening and loss of elasticity. It has been associated with the onset of stroke and serves as an independent predictor of stroke incidence.
In this clinical trial, 92 asymptomatic subjects were orally administered either a rapeseed oil-based spread enriched with 3.0g of plant stanols or control, daily for 6 months. Their arterial stiffness and endothelial function were then assessed. Endothelial function is connected to most markers of inflammation and cardiovascular risk. Compared to control, administration of plant stanols resulted in significant reduction of serum total, LDL and non-HDL cholesterol concentrations by 6.6, 10.2 and 10.6%, respectively (p < 0.001). Arterial stiffness was unchanged in the group administered with plant stanols, but increased in control group (p = 0.023), as assessed using cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) and augmentation index (AI). These findings suggested the beneficial effects of plant stanols in lowering LDL and non-HDL cholesterol, as well as reducing arterial stiffness.
3. Improve prostate health
Prostate enlargement, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition that happens to almost all men as they get older. It is a non-cancerous increase in the size of the prostate gland and does not raise the risk for prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate gland causes uncomfortable urinary symptoms (known as dysuria), such as frequent urination, trouble initiating urination, weak urine stream, inability to urinate or loss of bladder control.
In this clinical trial, 200 patients with prostate enlargement were orally administered 20 mg β-sitosterol (phytosterol) 3 times daily for 6 months. Compared to the control group, those treated with β-sitosterol showed a marked improvement in symptoms associated with prostate enlargement, as evaluated using International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), with higher scores indicating higher symptom severity.
4. Reduce inflammation
Lipid peroxidation or oxidation of lipids, is a process in which free radical species result in the oxidative deterioration of lipids. It has been suggested to be a crucial step in the development of several diseases, including atherosclerosis, asthma, Parkinson’s disease, kidney damage and others. In addition to lipid peroxidation, chronic inflammation or long-term inflammation has been linked to a wide range of diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
In this clinical trial, 18 healthy participants with a mean body mass index of 22.8 kg/m2 were orally administered two soy milk (20g) treatments daily, one was a placebo and one containing 2.0g plant sterols, for 4 weeks. After the 4-week plant sterol treatment, biomarkers of lipid peroxidation and inflammation, including myeloperoxidase activity, serum lipid hydroperoxides, plasma and urinary F2-isoprostanes, plasma and urinary leukotriene B4, and plasma high-sensitivity c-reactive protein concentrations were significantly reduced, while concentrations of circulating lipoxin A4, a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammation mediator, were significantly increased. These findings suggested the efficacy of plant sterols in alleviating lipid peroxidation and inflammatory incidence (Free Radic Res. 50(12): 1396-1407).
In this animal test, mice were fed a high-cholesterol diet, followed by either red yeast rice extract (300 mg/kg) or control for 6 weeks. Compared to control, the group fed with red yeast rice showed reduced expression levels of inflammatory transcription factors, tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). In addition, the blood plasma levels of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG) and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) were significantly decreased; while the levels of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) were significantly upregulated in red yeast rice group, compared to control group (p < 0.05). In addition, the results demonstrated that red yeast rice extract was able to reduce oxidative stress on kidneys caused by hyperlipidemia. These findings suggested the beneficial effects of red yeast rice in managing inflammation, blood lipids and kidney injury.
5. Help manage cancer cells
i) Prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. It is an uncontrolled malignant growth of cells in the prostate gland, a small gland in males which produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Long-term use of statin drugs has been associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Nonetheless, some individuals may be intolerant to the side effects of statin such as muscle pain. Monacolin K in red yeast rice in identical to lovastatins. Both lovastatin and red yeast rice suppress the biosynthesis of cholesterol, which is crucial to the growth of tumour cells. In addition, research has reported that red yeast rice inhibited prostate cancer cell proliferation in vitro.
In this animal test, mice were orally administered a control diet containing 5% red yeast rice powder or lovastatin in an amount equivalent to that in 5% red yeast rice diet. Compared to control, red yeast rice significantly reduced prostate tumour volumes (p < 0.05). The suppression of tumour volumes by red yeast rice was greater than that observed with lovastatin. This showed that other compounds in red yeast rice help inhibit cancer cell proliferation. In addition, significant correlation was shown between tumour volume and serum cholesterol (p < 0.001). These findings suggested the potential of red yeast rice in managing prostate tumour.
ii) Breast cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, with risk of developing it increasing with age. In this clinical trial, oral administration of red yeast rice (120 mg/kg, qd) was given to patients with breast cancer for 12 weeks. Results found significant decrease in the serum tumour biomarker (CA125, CA153) levels and improvement in the quality of life as well as improved immune function following chemotherapy and resection surgery (Zhong, 2017).
Zhong, H. (2017). The effect and mechanism study about the red yeast rice inhibiting the angiogenesis of breast cancer (Doctor, Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ji'nan).
6. Protect against brain deterioration
Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptides are the main components of amyloid plaques present in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients. The peptides are derived from the amyloid precursor protein (APP), which is cleaved by beta secretase and gamma secretase to produce Aβ. Diets high in cholesterol have been demonstrated to stimulate Aβ formation and deposition in the brain, while downregulating the secretion of neuroprotective soluble APP α-fragment (sAPPα). Research has reported that red yeast rice, which possesses cholesterol-lowering, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties helped mitigate Aβ-induced memory deficit.
This vitro study observed the effect of red yeast rice extract on the mediation of proteolytic process of APP (breakdown of Aβ peptides) in cholesterol-treated human neuroblastoma IMR32 cells. Results showed that red yeast rice extract suppressed cholesterol-raised β-secretase activity and further resulted in the increase of sAPPα secretion in the IMR32 cell.
In an animal test, the effect of red yeast rice extract on memory and learning ability was evaluated in Aβ40-infused hyperlipidemic rats. Results showed that red yeast rice extract helped reverse the memory deficit in the water maze and passive avoidance tasks, which are common tests used to evaluate learning and memory in rodent models. Collectively, these findings suggested the potential neuroprotective effect of red yeast rice extract against amyloid plaque formation and development of AD (J. Agric. Food Chem. 58 (4), 2230–2238 (2010)).
7. Support healthy liver
Fatty liver refers to a build-up of fat in the liver (over 5% of the total organ size), which rarely show any symptoms. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to fatty liver, known as alcoholic fatty liver disease. In many cases though, people who drink little or no alcohol also develop fatty liver, this is known as non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD). Research has reported strong liver protective effect of red yeast rice extract in both alcoholic fatty liver and NAFLD mice models.
i) Alcoholic fatty liver disease
In this animal test, mice with chronic alcohol-induced liver disease were orally administered either powder red yeast rice at 307.5 mg/kg (1-fold), 615 mg/kg (2-fold), and 1537.5 mg/kg (5-fold), or a control for 5 weeks. Oral administration of red yeast rice significantly undermine the increased level of serum transaminases (aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase), triglyceride and total cholesterol accumulation in the liver. In addition, red yeast rice increased the liver’s antioxidant ability that reduced liver cell damage and decreased tissue inflammatory cytokine levels. These findings suggested that red yeast rice could potentially be a novel and protective strategy against alcoholic liver disease by reducing liver damage, oxidative stress and inflammatory response (J. Agric. Food. Chem. 59 (18): 9950–9957 (2011)).
ii) Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
In this animal test, rats with high-fat diet-induced NAFLD were orally administered either a placebo or red yeast rice extract at 300 mg/kg for 6 weeks. The administration of red yeast rice extract markedly alleviated dyslipidemia (abnormal amount of lipids in the blood) and fat accumulation in the liver, lessened fatty liver, reversed abnormalities in liver enzymes (aminotransferase), improved insulin resistance and mitigated oxidative stress, suggesting the potential clinical application of red yeast rice extract in the treatment of NAFLD (Clin. Exp. Pharmacol. Physiol. 34 (1-2): 27–35 (2007)).
8. Support healthy bone density
Osteoporosis is a bone condition characterised by a loss of bone density, resulting from an imbalance between new bone formation and old bone resorption. In other words, the rate of new bone formation is slower than bone loss. Loss of more bone mass increases the risk of fractures, especially in the hip, spine and wrist. Several studies have suggested the protective role of red yeast rice in osteoporosis.
In this animal test, rats with ovariectomy-induced bone loss were administered red yeast rice extract for 20 weeks. The results showed significant increase in bone mineral density and a decrease in bone turnover markers levels, including osteocalcin and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase. In addition, administration of red yeast rice also improved the viability of osteoblasts (cells that form bone tissue) and enhanced the mRNA and protein expression of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) 2 and BMP4 that induce bone formation. Collectively, these findings suggested that red yeast rice extract may be useful in preventing and managing osteoporosis.
9. Reduce high blood glucose
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to help body cells absorb glucose so as to reduce the blood glucose levels in the body. High blood glucose would happen when the pancreas is not making sufficient insulin to keep blood glucose within the normal range. Other factor contributing to high blood glucose could be insulin resistance, where the body cells do not respond well to insulin and cannot easily take up the glucose from the blood. Oxidative stress plays a critical role in the dysfunction of pancreas in diabetic condition and hence, is a promising therapeutical target for diabetes.
In this animal test, diabetic mice were orally administered red yeast rice (300 mg/kg) for 8 weeks. Results showed red yeast rice significantly decreased the blood glucose level by improving glucose tolerance and insulin secretion. It also inhibited the expression of key factors in oxidative stress, including 8-OHdG, 4-HNE, and gp91phox. These findings suggested that the effects of red yeast rice on oxidative stress may partly account for the improved insulin secretion in diabetes (J. Cardiovasc. Pharmacol. 63 (3): 282–289 (2014)).
10. Support healthy body weight
Overweight and obesity refer to abnormal or excessive fat accumulation, which increase the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A body mass index (BMI) over 25 is considered overweight, and over 30 is obese. A study suggested that red yeast rice possesses anti-obesity activity and holds the therapeutic potential in treating obesity.
In this in vitro study, 3T3-L1 cell line, a cell line derived from mouse that is used in research on adipose tissue (body fat) was used to evaluate the effects of red yeast rice extract on preadipocytes (cells that will differentiate into mature adipocytes) and on mature adipocytes (fat cells). Red yeast rice extract had inhibitory effects on 3T3-L1 preadipocyte proliferation and differentiation. In addition, it also enhanced the lipolysis activity (broken down of fat) in mature adipocytes, which negative correlated with the triglyceride content within cells.
In addition, an animal test was conducted to examine the anti-obesity effects of red yeast rice. Male rats were fed with high-fat (HF) diet supplemented with either red yeast rice or control for 6 weeks. Compared to rats fed with HF-diet, rats orally administered with red yeast rice showed lower weight gain, less fat pads mass, and smaller fat cells. These effects were probably the consequence of an increase in the lipolysis activity of adipose tissue and a reduction in food or energy consumption. The supplementation of red yeast rice significantly reduced serum total cholesterol, serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the ratio of LDL to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and serum insulin, while significantly increased serum HDL cholesterol in rats fed with HF-diet. These findings suggested that red yeast rice could potentially prevent body fat accumulation and improve unhealthy blood lipid levels.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), the leading cause of death globally, are conditions which affect the structures or function of the heart and blood vessels (this also includes heart attack and stroke). Unhealthy lifestyles as well as high cholesterol and triglyceride levels increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Maintaining them at healthy levels are imperative in reducing CVD risks.
Cholesterol is essential to build new cells, insulate nerves and make vitamins and hormones, so our body requires a healthy amount of cholesterol for these functions.
Typically, our liver produces all the cholesterol the body needs but dietary cholesterol from the foods we consume, such as meats and dairy products, are also circulated in the blood.
Triglycerides are the most common type of fat. High levels of triglycerides are a risk factor for heart disease and may be a sign of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that develop together; these include high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excessive fat around the waist, low HDL (good cholesterol) and high triglycerides. They increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.
• High calorie intake, low burn-off rate
• Obesity or overweight
• High intake of sugar, refined carbohydrates & alcohol
• Lack of physical exercise
• High intake of saturated fat and trans fat
• Low fibre, high meat diet
• Insufficient water intake, overeating
The risk of atherosclerosis (fatty deposits build-up in the artery wall) is increased when the triglycerides and LDL are high and HDL is low.
1. Regulates cholesterol production by the liver
Red yeast rice contains a naturally-derived active compound which effectively helps to maintain healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
2. Helps block the absorption of dietary cholesterol
Naturally-occurring Oryza Sterol competes with cholesterol to form mixed micelles, so less cholesterol is absorbed into the blood stream.
How it works?
Bile acids from the gall bladder digest fats (including cholesterol) by emulsifying fats into micelles to facilitate the absorption of fat into the bloodstream. The presence of Oryza Sterol phytosterols, especially β-sitosterol, hinders the formation of cholesterol micelle. This helps to reduce the amount of cholesterol absorbed into the blood and hence lowers the cholesterol levels in the body.
3. Facilitates the discharge of cholesterol
Naturally-occurring Oryza Sterol stimulates intestinal cholesterol excretion. As more cholesterol is removed out of the body, this helps to promote healthy cholesterol levels.
Not all red yeast rice are equal. The naturally-derived Active Open Loop Monacolin K in CHOLRestore red yeast rice needs no conversion so it can directly be utilised to lower cholesterol without taxing the liver.
• A traditional Chinese culinary and medicinal product prized for its health-promoting benefits. It is produced by fermenting cooked rice kernels with Monascus purpureus, a species of the purplish-red Monascaceae mold.
• Used in East Asia to support healthy blood circulation and reduce indigestion, diarrhoea and limb weakness.
• Supplements in the USA are marketed to support healthy blood lipids.
Monacolin K – the key to lowering cholesterol levels. Red Yeast Rice contains an active compound, Monacolin K which is identical to that found in prescribed cholesterol-lowering medication. Monacolin K is effective in inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase (an enzyme responsible for the production of cholesterol in the body) and thus significantly helps to reduce cholesterol levels.
Research has shown that red yeast rice which contains substantial amounts of Monacolin K, helps lower elevated total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
This is why Red Yeast Rice is commonly the preferred natural and cost-effective alternative to costly medications when it comes to addressing high cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.
• Phytosterols (referred to as plant sterol and stanol esters) are a group of naturally occurring compounds found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds.
• β-Sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol are the main phytosterols present in plants.
• Oryza Sterol phytosterols are similar in structure to cholesterol, hence, are effective in interfering with the absorption of dietary cholesterol from the intestines into the bloodstream.
• Also stimulates the excretion of cholesterol and interferes the transportation, to collectively lower total and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels.
• Scientifically proven to benefit individuals with high cholesterol, high CVD risk, liver and other health concerns.
Highly Recommended for Individuals:
• With unhealthy cholesterol and/or triglyceride levels
• Suffering from undesirable side effects of cholesterol-lowering therapy
