Lipotrienols RYR? is a powerful combination of natural substances intended to support normal blood lipid levels and optimize cardiac and vascular health, including:
- High delta-fraction tocotrienols ? shown to have an ability to suppress the activity of HMG-CoA reductase.
- Certified organic red yeast rice extract ? rich in monocolins known for their effect on modulating blood lipids.
- Lycopene ? shown in studies to reduce low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation
- Lecithin – enhances absorption of these fat soluble compounds
Red yeast rice is the product of yeast (Monascus purpureus) containing several compounds collectively known as monacolins, substances known to support normal blood lipid levels. One of these, “monacolin K,” is a potent inhibitor of the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme.
Of great importance – The red yeast rice in Lipotrienols RYR? is USDA certified organic and grown in the USA. Designs for Health takes great care to assay our red yeast rice to assure that there are undetectable levels of citrinin (< 1 ppm), as well as substantial levels of naturally-occurring monocolin compounds (4 mg per 2 capsule serving).
