Vinco’s Red Yeast Rice has been shown to be beneficial in maintaining healthy LDL levels.
For centuries, Red Yeast Rice (RYR) has been used in China as both a food and as a medicinal substance. By fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus over red rice, you inturn make Red Yeast Rice. Through the centuries, in Chinese Medicine, RYR has been shown to promote blood circulation, soothe upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen, a body organ that destroys old blood cells and filters foreign substances. More recently, RYR has been shown to contain substances similar to those of prescription medications used to lower cholesterol.

What Are LDL Cholesterol Levels?
LDL cholesterol is known as “bad” cholesterol, due to elevated levels of LDL cholesterol being associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease. LDL lipoprotein deposits cholesterol on artery walls, causing the formation of hard, thick substances called cholesterol plaque. As a result of this process, over time cholesterol plaque causes the thickening of artery walls and narrowing of the arteries, this is called atherosclerosis.
