Red Yeast Rice Extract
Red yeast rice extract has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over a thousand years. As part of East Asian diets, red yeast rice is used for food coloring and preservation. It is recognized as a folk remedy for improving food digestion and blood circulation.1 Only now is Western medicine catching on to its power.
As a nutraceutical, red yeast rice is made by fermenting white rice with the fungus Monascus purpureus. During fermentation, the main active ingredient, monacolins,are produced. Because monacolin K is chemically similar to lovastatin, a cholesterol-lowering drug, it is often used by statin-intolerant patients.2 3 4 Red Yeast Rice Plus™ is standardized to contain less than 0.1% monacolin K in compliance with industry regulations.**
Other compounds found in red yeast rice are isoflavones, plant sterols and monounsaturated fatty acids (“healthy fats”).6. Isoflavones are antioxidants shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.6. Plant sterols consist of naturally occurring compounds found in plant cells.7. Sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption in the digestive system. As a result, cholesterol absorption is blocked, and blood cholesterol levels are reduced.8
Bergamot is a citrus fruit found in southern Italy. It has many uses, but for generations it’s been treasured for making one of the finest teas in the world—Earl Grey. When it comes to supporting heart health, only the extract form will do. In fact, the extract has been shown to be just as powerful as red yeast rice when it comes to supporting a healthy cardiovascular system.
Bergamot is loaded with flavonoids and polyphenols, both of which are powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are shown to fight off free radicals that can cause cell damage.9 Research suggests that antioxidants play an important role in supporting health.
We specifically use Bergavit®, a patented and standardized extract containing the main active flavonoids of bergamot juice. This means you’ll be sure to get the right amount of bergamot you need for heart health and antioxidant support.
Our form of red yeast rice is citrinin-free.*** Citrinin is an occasional toxic by-product of the fermentation process of red yeast rice. Many manufacturers take shortcuts to make less effective forms of red yeast rice, and don’t disclose any amounts of citrinin.
But here at Simple Promise, we take all the necessary precautions to avoid the presence of citrinin. We also follow Current Good Manufacturing Practices, and have our products rigorously third-party tested.
This means you can count on Red Yeast Rice Plus as a safe, effective solution for your heart health…
And Simple Promise as a guide you can lean on for real answers.
