If you are curious!
Why is Milk Thistle used in this product formulation as well?
While food we consume produces 20% of our body’s cholesterol, the bulk 80% of cholesterol is produced by our liver. Thus a healthy liver allows dietary cholesterol to be channeled into the liver for metabolism or excretion through the bile. People who have poor liver function may have difficulty in controlling their cholesterol levels. Milk Thistle has been traditionally used as a liver tonic to regulate and improve liver function.
What are HDL and LDL?
Lipoproteins carry cholesterol around the blood in our body. There are 2 main types of lipoproteins -:
• High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) (commonly known as “good cholesterol”) clears up cholesterol from the blood and to the liver where it is cleared from the body.
• Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) (commonly known as “bad cholesterol”) - when LDL levels are too high, cholesterol will be deposited in the arteries (blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body). This will cause the arteries to narrow or be blocked, which could cause heart attack and stroke.
What is Red Yeast Rice?
Red yeast rice naturally contains several ingredients that may help control cholesterol levels. These include a number of monacolins, most importantly monacolin K. It also contains sterols, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids, or " healthy fats."
- It has been used in food preparation as early as 300 BC.
- Commonly used by the Chinese and Japanese.
- Often used as a red coloring in food.
- Contains Monacolin K to help regulate lipid levels
Lifestyle changes to help lower blood cholesterol levels:
- Avoid foods high in cholesterol (eg. Butter, shellfish, eggyolk, processed meats, fast food)
- Consume more foods rich in soluble or insoluble fibres (eg. Fruits and vegetables).
- Consume more fish (eg. Salmon, tuna, mackerel, etc)
- Exercise (30 minutes of moderate intensity, 3 times a week)
- Stop smoking.
Dosage: 2 to 4 capsules daily in divided doses. Preferably one of the doses at night. (Max 5 capsules daily)
Red Yeast Rice is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing mothers and women of childbearing age who are likely to conceive and those with past history of liver disease.
Monascus pilosus Red Yeast Rice is generally safe and well tolerated. Mild headache, abdominal discomfort and flatulence are possible side-effects. People taking Red Yeast Rice who develop muscle pain or tenderness should discontinue the product immediately and check with their doctor.
You are advised to consult your physician if you are on other cholesterol-lowering drugs.
