Product Description

Functional Red Yeast also called lipid-lowering Monascus is high-quality, pollution-free non transgenic rice as the main raw materials, refined by modern biological fermentation engineering technology is a kind of natural high-tech fermentation products.

The company based on inheriting the traditional production process of Monascus strains, using modern biotechnology breeding, fermentation using advanced technology and equipment for the production of functional red yeast. Functional Monascus produced rich biological activity and physiological active substances, such as Monacolin-K, ergosterol, gamma aminobutyric acid, natural plant hormones and metabolites of Monascus, has high nutritional and medicinal value and health care, without any side effects, is a natural, safe and effective health care food and pharmaceutical raw materials.

The source of product--Red Rice

The traditional red rice is produced with rice as raw material, after soaking rice, steamed rice, cooling after inoculation of Monascus fermentation under certain conditions, finally drying can be obtained. Monascus as natural colorants used in the food industry has a long history. Mainly used for food, wine vinegar, pickled tofu and make red braised pork, sausage, candy, jam, fruit juice drinks, cakes and other coloring.

Discovery of functional red yeast

For a long time, red rice is a traditional China with blood stasis, Jianpixiaoshi functions such as edible medicine. However, Monascus attention also dates back to the 70s real century in the world. Professor Endo Aki found in Japan in 1979 from Monascus fermentation broth and isolated could significantly inhibit cholesterol synthesis of the active substances of Monacolin K (Monacolin K), the world's scientists began to natural Monascus Monacolin compounds and given the widespread concern of the new. In 1985, American scientists Goldstein and Brown further identified the mechanism by which Monacolin-k inhibits cholesterol synthesis, and thus won the Nobel prize. The fame of monascus.

Active ingredients of functional Red Yeast and its main function

1. Monacolin K - reducing blood lipid

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.

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.

2. Ergosterin---Promote calcium absorption

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.

3. Gamma aminobutyric acid (-GABA) --- lowering blood pressure

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.

4.  Natural plant hormones (Isoflavone)

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