Product Information

Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. Numerous studies in China and the United States have demonstrated that red yeast rice preparations are helpful in maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels.* This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining good cardiovascular health.*

Choleast-900 contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice, without standardization or fortification. In addition to natural monacolins, red yeast rice contains the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular health.*

Heart Health Webinar

Alan Miller, ND, presents an explanation of the research behind the use of red yeast rice, methylation promoters, and nitric oxide cofactors for cardiovascular health. This 30-minute webinar explains how L-arginine and specific antioxidants and nutrient and botanical cofactors influence cardiovascular health; how 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF - the active form of folate), vitamins B2, B6, B12, and betaine support heart health by reducing homocysteine; and how red yeast rice helps support normal cholesterol levels.
