Red yeast rice is a product that is fermented by red yeast (Monascus purpureus), containing many natural compounds such as monacolins and sterols. Not all brands sold on the market are of high quality. Some of them contain citrinin, a compound formed during production and potentially toxic for your health.
Life Extension® uses sophisticated techniques to identify citrinin content in commercial supplements of red yeast rice. The result of our work is Cho-Less™, a rich supplement for those who seek the benefits of red yeast rice together with other healthy nutrients. The following ingredients have been added for healthy normal lipid levels: artichoke leaf extract, pantethine, guggul standardised extract, beta-sitosterol, niacin and policosanol.
