IMonascus purpureus is a particular yeast, with a characteristic red color, which by controlled fermentation of rice is enriched with a group of substances that has been attributed to cholesterol-lowering activity.
The red yeast rice is titrated in Monacolin, a natural substance which, due to its characteristic chemical and physical structure, is very similar to that of statin molecules.
Scientific studies have shown that Monacolin is able to act as an inhibitor of the enzyme HMG-Coa reductase (Hydrox-Methyl-Glutaryl Coa reductase), which is the key to the endogenous cholesterol synthesis of liver cells.
The red rice yeast has a much sweeter and respectful action than the natural balance of the body with consequent reduction of the side effects that occur with the intake of chemical-type statins.
