HELPS TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY CHOLESTEROL LEVELS
Newest generation of potent red yeast rice (minimum 90% hydroxy-acid form), helps you to maintain healthy cholesterol levels and is combined with antioxidants hydroxytyrosol (as dry extract from olive fruit) and astaxanthin (from microalgae).
50 X MORE RED YEAST RICE EXTRACT
Red yeast rice has been fermented with a yeast called Monascus purpureus, which gives it a characteristic reddish purple colour. It has been used in China and Japan for centuries as an ingredient to season, preserve or colour food. Red yeast rice naturally contains monacolin K, a precious nutrient similar to statins – the most commonly prescribed cholesterol lowering drug. Several scientific studies have shown that a minimum of 10 mg of monacolin K per day is a natural alternative to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
MONACOLIN K IN MINIMUM 90% HYDROXY-ACID FORM
Monacolin K comes in two molecular forms: lactone and hydroxy-acid. Monacolin K in its 90% hydroxy- acid form has a tremendous advantage, as it does not need to be converted in your body and is immediately active – it is the most potent form to help you lower ‘bad’ cholesterol.
There still is another benefit: monacolin K in hydroxy-acid form allows your body to fully use the available amount of coenzyme Q10 present in your cells or supplied by food. So with CholeRice + ChoLive you do not need to take extra coenzyme Q10, whereas monacolin K in lactone form does not offer this advantage.
6X MORE OLIVE EXTRACT
We enhanced this top quality red yeast rice with special polyphenols from olive fruit – mainly hydroxytyrosol. This superb olive fruit extract acts as an antioxidant and protects the blood lipids, especially the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol, against oxidative stress.
This beneficial effect occurs with a daily dose of minimum 5 mg hydroxytyrosol or 20 g (about 22 ml) high quality olive oil. CholeRice + ChoLive contains no less than 30 mg hydroxytyrosol, corresponding to a daily use of van 120 g (or 132 ml) olive oil.
WITH EXTRA ASTAXANTHIN
Astaxanthin is another substance that works as an antioxidant in nature. It is a carotenoid and a natural pinkish red colourant found in certain fish, shrimp, crustaceans and microalgae.
