What is Red Yeast Rice?
Rice has been a staple of Asian diets for centuries, and in many parts of the world, rice is fermented to use as a condiment in dishes. One method of fermenting rice involves combining rice with Monascus purpureus yeast. This produces a substance called red yeast, which has been used as a traditional remedy in China since ancient times.
There are a few amazing ingredients in red yeast that are believed to support cardiovascular health. These ingredients include:
* Monounsaturated fatty acids (usually considered the ‘good’ kind of fat)
* Monacolins (particularly monacolin K)
* Sterols (awesome plant substances that help to control cholesterol)
* Isoflavones (which are powerful antioxidants)
