A Powerful Cholesterol Support Supplement.
Organic Red Yeast Rice 600mg
Evidence - Research on the use of fish oil for specific conditions shows:
- Heart disease. While research shows that people who eat dietary sources of fish oil at least twice a week have a lower risk of dying of heart disease, taking fish oil supplements seems to have little to no benefits to heart health.
- High blood pressure. Multiple studies report modest reductions in blood pressure in people who take fish oil supplements. There's some evidence that the beneficial effects of fish oil might be greater for people with moderate to severe high blood pressure than for those with mild blood pressure elevation.
- High triglycerides and cholesterol. There's strong evidence that omega-3 fatty acids can significantly reduce blood triglyceride levels. There also appears to be a slight improvement in high-density lipoprotein (HDL, or "good") cholesterol, although an increase in levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or "bad") cholesterol also was observed.
- Rheumatoid arthritis. Studies suggest fish oil supplements might help reduce pain, improve morning stiffness and relieve joint tenderness in people with rheumatoid arthritis. While relief is often modest, it might be enough to reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medications.
Omega-3 fatty acids:
Important to overall health, especially for the heart, brain, and cell membranes of the body.* The omega-3 fatty acids, Eicosapentaenoic Acid
(EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), are precursors to the PGE3 series of prostaglandins, which are substances important to proper body regulation.*
Red Yeast Rice
Red yeast rice is rice that is cultivated with yeast grown on it. It is a common food in many Asian countries. It's known to inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol in the human body, which can lead to lowered cholesterol levels. This has led to use as a natural anti-cholesterol supplement.*
One of the cholesterol synthesis inhibiting chemicals in red yeast rice, monacolin K, is used in an anti-cholesterol drug manufactured by Merck & Co., known as Mevacor (also known as lovastatin and mevinolin).*
CoQ10, also known as coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone, is a substance produced in the body necessary for the basic functioning of cells. It speeds up the rate at which chemical reactions take in the body. It is used by the cells for cell growth and maintenance, as well as repair from free-radical oxidative damage. CoQ10 also plays an important role in protecting the brain cells from oxidative stress.*
Red Yeast Rice's Effect on Cholesterol
The red yeast rice inhibits cholesterol synthesis in the human body, thus having an effect on the overall level of LDL and overall cholesterol.*
CoQ10's Effect on Cholesterol
CoQ10 acts on cholesterol differently than red yeast rice. Some evidence seems to indicate that it may not be LDL that causes atherosclerosis, but rather the oxidation of that LDL. Enter CoQ10. Because CoQ10 has an anti-oxidative effect on all of the body tissue, it also has an anti-oxidative effect on LDL. While it doesn't lower the amount of LDL, it keeps it from oxidizing and becoming artery-clogging plaque.*
Cardiovascular risk factors.
If you have an elevated triglyceride level and a history of cardiovascular
disease or have major risk factors for it, a high-dose omega-3 medication
may be advisable. This is true even if you're already taking a statin
medication. The omega-3 drug does not replace the statin.
