Natural Functional Red Yeast Rice Powder
Red yeast rice, or monascus purpureus, is yeast grown on rice. It has been used as a dietary
in many Asian countries and it is currently used as a nutritional supplement taken to manage cholesterollevels. Used in China for over a
thousand years, red yeast rice has now found its way to American
consumers looking for alternatives to statin therapy.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, red yeast rice was used to improve blood circulation and to aid in digestion. It has now been found to lower blood lipids, including cholesterol and triglycerides. Recorded use of red yeast rice goes back as far as the
Chinese Tang Dynasty in 800 A.D.
Red yeast rice health benefits are found in its compounds known as
monacolins, known to inhibit cholesterol synthesis. One of these
compounds, monocolin K, is known to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, an
enzyme that triggers cholesterol production.
Because of these naturally occurring statins, red yeast rice is
sold as an over the counter cholesterol control supplement.
Human studies, which began in the 1970’s, have confirmed the
benefits of red yeast rice in lowering cholesterol.
A study at the UCLA School of Medicine of 83 people with high
cholesterol showed a significant reduction in their total
cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels after twelve weeks. Study
participants were given 2.4 grams of red yeast rice daily
and ate a diet with no more than 30% fat intake.
