RYR Synergy by Designs for Health


RYR Synergy (120 capsules) helps maintain healthy lipids within the normal range. This powerful formula combines the benefits of USDA-certified organic red yeast rice with the addition of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for additional cardiovascular support and antioxidant properties.


Natural Alternative for Lipid Management with Red Yeast Rice and CoQ10

Featuring USDA certified organic red yeast rice. The CoQ10 in RYR Synergy uses a patented delivery system that has been shown to significantly increase absorption and bioavailability.

Who should consider RYR Synergy

People with dyslipidemia and those with familial over-production of cholesterol via the liver are ideal. This product reduces cholesterol synthesis by suppressing the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme, similarly to although slightly more subtly than statin medications. Because CoQ10 is synthesized in the body via this same pathway, those taking red yeast rice long term should consider taking RYR with coenzyme Q10 added.

Note: Our Q-Avail line, with highly bioavailable CoQ10 in doses ranging from 60mg to 200mg, is ideal for those wanting to supplement with higher levels of CoQ10 for additional health benefits.

Special features of this red yeast rice:

The red yeast rice in RYR Synergy is USDA certified organic and grown in the USA. Designs for Health takes great care to assay its red yeast rice to assure that there are undetectable levels of the fungal contaminant citrinin (< 1 ppm), as well as substantial levels of naturally occurring monacolin compounds, especially monacolin K, one of the most well known and effective compounds to help lower plasma levels of cholesterol.

Red yeast rice is a product of yeast (Monascus purpureus) containing several compounds collectively known as monacolins, substances that have been shown by clinical studies to modulate blood lipids. One of these, “monacolin K,” is a functional inhibitor of the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme responsible for the synthesis of cholesterol in the body.

RYR Synergy may support:

  • Natural favorable modulation of blood lipids naturally
  • Reduction of microbes known to play a role in cardiovascular disease
  • Protection of the arterial lining helping to prevent atherosclerotic lesions that may lead to heart attack
  • Reduction of inflammation and oxidative stress, both known to be associated with heart disease
  • Favorable alteration of CRP, blood glucose, HDL and triacylglycerol (triglycerides)

How are the best results achieved with RYR Synergy?

Research concludes that most of our endogenous cholesterol is produced while sleeping, therefore, take at bedtime rather than early in the day. Start with 2 capsules at night and increase to 4 per day as needed.
