The Active Ingredients and Main Function of Functional Monascus


  1. 1.Hypolipidemic Monacolin K

  2. Pharmacological studies and clinical trials show that: the natural functional Monascus Monacolin-K can effectively reduce the body's total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL C), triglyceride (TG) levels, and increased high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is beneficial to the human body has a significant level the effects of reducing blood lipid.

  3. The structure and 3- in vivo by Monacolin-K based -3- methyl amyl phthalate two coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) is very similar to that of HMG-CoA reductase is a key enzyme of cholesterol synthesis speed control, so Monacolin compounds can be used as a competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase in clinical application, effectively reduce or block the synthesis of endogenous cholesterol.


  5. 2.Ergosterol, promote the absorption of calcium

  6. Ergosterol can be converted into vitamin D after ultraviolet irradiation, so it is also called the precursor of vitamin D and vitamin D can promote the body's absorption of calcium, phosphorus and other elements, is conducive to bone formation and prevent osteoporosis.


  8. 3. gamma aminobutyric acid (gamma -GABA) - lowering blood pressure

  9. GABA is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, has the extremely important physiological functions, vasomotors role in the spinal cord, can effectively promote the expansion of blood vessels, play a role in lowering blood pressure.

  10. 4.natural plant hormones (Isoflavone)

  11. Estrogen like active substances can help women to prevent osteoporosis, menopause syndrome.
