What is BioActive Red Yeast Rice?
BioActive Red Yeast Rice are tablets each containing 350 mg of red yeast rice powder whose strength has been tested and has been shown to be able to maintain normal cholesterol levels in the body. This mechanism of action is related to a substance called monacolin K which influences the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase involved in the biological process in the body, whose end-product is cholesterol.
