Thorne Research Choleast 900 supports healthy cholesterol levels, cardiovascular health, and healthy lipid particle size and number. Red yeast rice helps to maintain blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg of CoQ10 per capsule and CoQ10 provides antioxidant support. Choleast contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice without standardization or fortification. We know this because Thorne measures every ingredient in order to be in compliance with our strict GMP obligation to determine each ingredient's identity, purity, strength, and composition. In addition to 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 good cardiovascular health.
Recommended use: 1 capsule per day or as directed by a healthcare professional.
