What is Red Yeast Rice + Coenzyme Q10?
Red Yeast Rice + Coenzyme Q10 is a food supplement based on red yeast rice and coenzyme Q10.
Red Yeast Rice is a nutraceutical obtained by fermenting rice (Oryza sativa) with a type of fungus. During this fermentation process, various compounds are formed with significant lipid-lowering activity, i.e. the ability to lower blood lipid levels, such as monacolins.
Monacolin K acts on the enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis. Inhibition of these enzymes, on which other compounds such as policosanols also exert an effect, allows blood cholesterol to be lowered.
As a result of its fermentative nature, the content of a substance known as citrinin should be noted, as it can have harmful effects on the body. In formulating this supplement, Life Pro has taken this feature into account, and a raw material standardised monacolinK and with citrinin levels well below those recommended by the food authorities.
In addition, as monacolin K may increase the risk of myalgia due to Coenzyme Q10 depletion, it has been added during the formulation process. Coenzyme Q10 is used in important processes such as the production of ATP in the mitochondria and the neutralisation of free radicals thanks to its antioxidant properties.
The benefits of Red Yeast Rice + Coenzyme Q10:
- Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels.
