Red Yeast Rice
Red yeast rice, also called red rice koji, is a fermented rice that has been used in Chinese herbal medicine practices for thousands of years. Red yeast rice has the ability to reduce serum and LDL cholesterol levels, aid the digestive system, reduce the risk of heart attack, improve liver function, reduce the risk of cancer, lower high blood pressure, and invigorate the body.
Why It works
In recent years, statistical analysis has shown that 93 million U.S. adults, ages 20 or older, have high total cholesterol levels, a result primarily due to a poor nutritional diet.
In the United states, red yeast rice has been used as a natural alternative to statin therapy in treating people with mild to moderate hypercholesterolemia by significantly lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels, as well as total cholesterol.
Other research shows that taking 600 mg of red yeast rice twice daily for 12 weeks reduces levels of liver enzymes associated with liver damage and improves levels of blood fats in people with diabetes and a certain type of liver disease not caused by alcohol use.
Our Liposomal Red Yeast Rice formula is enhanced with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a unique fatty acid that is proven to reduce body fat levels and manage the glycemic profile, along with black seed oil for its ability to improve lipid profiles and support the cardiovascular system.
This formula may help to manage cholesterol levels, lower blood sugar, increase metabolism, and improve overall heart function.

Squeeze onto a spoon or directly into the mouth to consume. May be mixed into a beverage of your choice and be taken with or without food.
