The main ingredient in REDUCOL 250 is red yeast rice, a yeast that grows on rice and has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. The beneficial effect of red yeast rice is due to the substances present in this yeast and the monacolins (especially monacolin K) that are generated during the fermentation process. This beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 10 mg of monacolin K.
Red rice yeast is a fermented product obtained by fermenting rice with a specific strain of yeast called Monascus purpureus. During this fermentation process, a substance called monacolin K is produced, which is responsible for the benefits associated with red rice yeast.
Monacolin K is structurally similar to lovastatin, an ingredient used to lower cholesterol levels. Therefore, red yeast rice has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine as a natural remedy to control cholesterol levels.
