WHY RED YEAST RICE?
Our red yeast rice comes from a trusted partner in China with a reputation for excellence. It is non-GMO verified, and free of solvents and the most common allergens. We ascertain the quality and purity of our raw material by testing for heavy metals, microbes, pesticides and other possible contamination. Part of this includes utilizing inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).

Medicine and Asian cuisine. Monascus purpureus is combined with rice and fermented. Then extracts are taken from the bright red rice to create a supplement rich in nutrients that may naturally help slow the liver’s normal ability to produce cholesterol. Red yeast rice supports the body’s ability to maintain normal-range cholesterol levels. It has also been used for flavoring, coloring and preserving food.
