Red Yeast Rice Powder

English Name: Red Yeast Rice
Other Name: Red rice yeast, red rice yeast extract, red kojic rice

Origin & Technology:
Red Yeast Rice powder is obtained through fermentation of permium grains with Monascus
purpureus strains. Red Yeast Rice powder conforms to the Chinese National
Standard GB/T5009-1996.

Red Yeast Rice was a great invention in ancient China and was used as a Chinese medicine
to strengthen spleen, promote digestion, eliminate dampness and phlegm,
promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis. Modern clinical research shows
that red kojic contains several physiological active matters, such as Lovastatin,
which can adjust abnormal blood lipid levels, lower serum total cholesterol(TC),serum
triglyceride, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL -C), and increase
high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). As a kind of natural food additives,
red kojic is widely used in food, pastry, wine, drink, cosmetic, and so on.
A kind of medicine which contains red kojic is used in hospitals now.

Monacolin K 0.4%,0.8%,1.0%,1.5%,2.0%,2.5%,3.0%.

In the natural form of solid red yeast rice fermentation Monacolin kind compounds
include acid form and lactone form. Among them only acid form is Monacolin active
form lowering lipid medicament.

This shows in red yeast rice the exist of open-ring or close-ring Monacolin and the
proportion of open-ring and close-ring Monacolin are the simple ways to judge
that Monacolin red yeast rice is added artificially or formed through natural fermentation.
Through HPLC detecting, this way can be realized. The result is obviously
shown from the character absorption apexes in the HPLC charts.

Chemical Composition:
Strongpoint of Acid Form:
Lactone Form of Monacolin-k is a pro-drug (Molecular structure, fig1.). It has no
activity and need to be hydrolyzed by carboxyl esterase, then converts to active
Acid Form (Molecular structure,fig2.), and then it can exerts its lipid-reducing
effect in body.

But, all these esterase showed evidence of inter-individual variability. Even in
some individuals, the activities of this esterase were completely missing. In this
way, the blood-lipid lowering effect of Lactone Form monacolin-k must be different
in the different individuals. If the level of your esterase is higher, Lactone
Form Monacolin-k will be effective for you; if the level of your esterase is
lower or missing; Lactone Form Monacolin-k will be not effective for you and,
the drug will be harmful to your liver and kidney.

By now, in my red yeast rice, the ratio of Acid Form red yeast rice in total inhibitors
accounts for 60%

Dose: 10mg Monacolin-k per day
