ROSSOPURO®: Natural Fermented Rice
Natural fermented red yeast rice for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia and the management of dyslipidemia.
Red yeast rice (RYR) has been used in Asia for centuries as a food preservative, food colorant and flavoring as well in traditional herbal formulas. It is part of the diet in China, Japan and Asian communities. RYR consists of a multitude of compounds including unsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols, pigments, and monacolins. Fermentation of red rice by the yeast Monascus purpureus produces, among the others, monacolin K, a monacolin that is structurally and functionally similar to lovastatin. Monacolin K is able to inhibit HMGCoA reductase and cholesterol synthesis. The cholesterol-lowering efficacy of RYR might be only in part attributable to monacolin K.
