High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides, Heart Conditions 


Red Yeast Rice is produced by fermenting yeast (Monascus purpureus) over rice. It has a long history of use in Chinese medicine to lower cholesterol, improve blood circulation, and help digestion. Studies report that Red Yeast Rice can lower low- density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which helps the body make cholesterol. Red Yeast Rice contains similar compounds (monacolins) as those contained in statin medications (pharmaceuticals used to lower cholesterol). The difference is that statins are synthetically manufactured drugs, whereas the compounds found in Red Yeast Rice are naturally occurring. Researchers are uncertain as to whether Red Yeast Rice is effective because of its natural statin-like compounds or if it is other constituents in it, such as sterols, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids, that are responsible. Many Red Yeast Rice products are low quality and may contain citrinin, a contaminate that can cause kidney failure and genetic damage to cells. Citrin is formed when 

Red Yeast Rice is not fermented properly. In addition, much of the Red Yeast Rice on the market, especially imported Red Yeast Rice, is processed with heat, which diminishes its activity. Vitality Works uses a high-quality Organic Red Yeast Rice produced in the United States that is cold-processed in order to maintain the purity, potency, safety, and a high activity level. Every batch is tested to ensure no citrinin is present and monacolins are consistent as a natural product. Because Red Yeast Rice is a natural type of statin and inhibits the enzyme in the body that is needed to make cholesterol, like statin drugs, it blocks the body's ability to produce Coenzyme Q-10 (Co-QIO). If one is taking statin drugs or Red Yeast Rice, Co-QIO should also be taken to avoid depletion. Co-QIO is required for the production of energy within every cell of our body and is critical for the health of all tissues and organs. It acts as a catalyst to the electron transport chain in the mitochondria of our cells where ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy is produced. Co-QIO is especially important for the health of the heart due to the organ's high- energy demands. It can benefit anyone experiencing cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, angina, arrhythmias, or congestive heart failure. Co-QIO improves overall heart function by enhancing energy production, inhibiting blood clot formation, improving the heart's pumping action, and preventing the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol).
