Choleast contains the naturally occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice (no relation to candida). It also contains a number of beneficial phytosterols, isoflavones and trace minerals. The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) has allowed the following health claim for Red Rice Yeast and the monacolin K “these contribute to the normal maintenance of blood LDL cholesterol levels, if at least 10mg of monacolin K from the red yeast rice is consumed daily”.
The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg of CoQ10 per capsule.
In easy to take vegetarian capsules this product is suitable for vegetarians, vegans and for people with candida and yeast sensitivities. Citrinin is a toxic by-product of the fermentation process and Thorne’s Choleast contains an undetectable level of citrinin.
