NOW FOODS RED YEAST RICE 600MG
Red yeast rice is a natural product that has been used by Asian traditional herbalists since approximately 800 A.D. and is used to lower cholesterol, improve blood circulation, and improve digestion. Red yeast rice contains chemicals that are similar to prescription statin medications.
Produced by fermenting red yeast (Monascus purpureus) with white rice, red yeast rice is commonly used in cooking applications to enhance the color and flavor of foods.
Peking duck is an example of the coloration and flavor imparted by red yeast rice. Red Yeast Rice is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, an unwanted by-product of the fermentation process.
NOW® Red Yeast Rice is tested by an independent, FDA-registered laboratory for potency and to assure the absence of citrinin.
It is offered in an enteric-coated, vegetarian capsule designed to survive stomach acid and release in the intestine, allowing for maximum absorption.
