Guaranteed free from monacolin K and statin-associated side effects
Free from toxic byproduct citrinin
Red Yeast Rice (RYR) has been used in food and traditional medicine for thousands of years in China for cardiovascular support. An extract from RYR has been fermented with the yeast Monascus purpureus, which creates compounds that have been clinically shown to inhibit the production of cholesterol in the liver.
Unlike many other red yeast rice supplements on the market, AOR’s Red Yeast Rice with Ankascin 568-R is subjected to a patented extraction process that removes citrinin, a toxic by-product of the fermentation process. Most RYR products on the market also contain monacolin K, a compound that is associated with side effects similar to statin drugs. These side effects can include myopathy, muscle pain and weakness, and rhabdomyolysis, a condition in which muscle fibres break down, releasing harmful substances into the bloodstream which can affect the liver and kidneys.
AOR’s Red Yeast Rice is the world’s first RYR product that does not contain any monacolin K or citrinin. Additionally, AOR has standardized the amount of biologically active pigments monascin and ankaflavin, which have been studied for their cholesterol-lowering activity.
Red Yeast Rice (RYR) has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for good health. RYR provides antioxidants which support heart health. AOR’s RYR is one of the only supplements guaranteed to be free from lovastatin and citrinin (a harmful toxin common to many other RYR supplements).
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, dairy, eggs, fish or shellfish.
Take one capsule one to two times per day with food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
