    Cholestene Red Yeast Rice - 120 Capsules

    With over 34 clinical studies performed in both the United States and China, the Red Yeast Rice ingredient found in Cholestene has been shown to contain compounds that may prevent the production of cholesterol in the liver. These scientific studies have shown that patients taking Red Yeast Rice were able to decrease their total cholesterol levels by as much as 19%. In addition to lowering total cholesterol levels, these studies have shown that Red Yeast Rice caused a significant decrease in triglycerides. This makes Cholestene a highly effective and well tolerated supplement that can be used to help regulate serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

    • Helps inhibit body's production of cholesterol
    • Helps promote healthy cholesterol levels
    • Supplements diet and exercise program
    • Natural dietary supplement
    • Supported by clinical research

    Red Yeast Rice is known to promote HMG-CoA reductase inhibition action which may help to promote healthy cholesterol levels.

    What is Red Yeast Rice?
    Red yeast rice (a.k.a. Hong qu) results from the fermentation of white rice with the red yeast Monascus purpureus, and has been used both medicinally and as a food additive in China for centuries.

    The active ingredients in red yeast rice are the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors monacolin I (a.k.a. lovastatin) and monacolin II. Also known as statins, these reductase inhibitors give red yeast rice its cholesterol-lowering properties.

    Lovastatin, one of the active ingredients in red yeast rice, is classified as a drug by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and can not legally be sold over the counter. Thus, an ongoing battle has ensued between the FDA and supplement manufacturers as to whether red yeast rice is covered by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Supplements protected under DSHEA are not subject to FDA regulation, unlike prescription drugs.

    Health Benefits
    Research studies show that red yeast rice helps lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglyceride levels in certain individuals. Some of these subjects also enjoyed an increase in HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.

    Cholesterol Facts...
    Millions of Americans have blood cholesterol levels that are too high. Elevated cholesterol levels can cause plaque to form in the arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. In fact, coronary artery disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States; claiming a half million lives a year.

    Cholesterol is a vital part of the body, a soft, waxy substance found among the fats in every cell. It is used to form cell membranes, some hormones and other needed tissues. Diet is another source of cholesterol, since it is also found in the animal products we eat.

    Fortunately cholesterol levels can be lowered by combining exercise with a low-fat diet, and by taking the dietary supplement Cholestene twice a day.

    What is Cholestene?
    Cholestene is an all natural dietary supplement formulated with red yeast rice which has been proven to have compounds powerful enough to help the body maintain normal cholesterol levels by blocking the production of LDL (bad) cholesterol.

    With over 34 clinical studies performed in both the United States and China proving the safety and efficacy of Red Yeast Rice, it's considered a leading alternative to pharmaceutical products for cholesterol management.

    The "Good" & "Bad" cholesterol
    What is actually being described are lipoproteins. Because Cholesterol is fat-like, it requires help to move through the watery membranes of the human body. Low-Density lipoproteins (LDL - referred to as "Bad") carry cholesterol to the body's tissues for cellular growth and repair. It is the sticky LDL's that attach themselves to blood vessel walls, eventually causing the build-up called plaque, which reduces blood flow and increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

    High-density lipoproteins (HDL - referred to as "Good") carries cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where it's passed from the body.

    We need the cholesterol our body produces, but it needs to be monitored by getting regular blood tests performed.

    Your Blood Cholesterol Level
    Compare your cholesterol numbers from your last lipid profile with the National Institute of Health's chart below to assess your levels:

    Total Blood Cholesterol Levels:

    • 200 mg/dl or less - Desirable
    • 200 to 239 mg/dl - Borderline High
    • 240 mg/dl and above - High

    LDL Blood Cholesterol Levels:

    • 130 mg/dl or less - Desirable
    • 130 to 159 mg/dl - Borderline High
    • 160 mg/dl and above - High

    HDL Blood Cholesterol Levels:

    • 40 mg/dl and above - Desirable

    Stroke & heart attack
    A stroke occurs when the oxygen supply to the brain is cut off because an artery bursts or becomes clogged with plaque. Without oxygen, brain cells die and the abilities or functions those cells controlled are lost.

    Similarly, a heart attack happens when the blood supply to the heart is cut off by coronary artery blockage. The part of the heart that is deprived of blood suffers tissue death.

    An elevated level of blood cholesterol combined With the following risk factors greatly increase the chances of developing heart disease.

    Risk factors:

    • High Blood Pressure
    • Diabetes
    • Overweight
    • Smoker
    • Family history of heart disease
    • blood vessel disease
    • Postmenopausal and not on hormone replacement

    Adopting a healthier lifestyle
    Although factors such as gender and family history cannot be changed, you can take action to reduce some of the heart attack & stroke risk factors.

    When eating, remember to choose lower fat alternatives and include more fruits and vegetables. Skip fatty sauces and creams, and eat less red meat. Quit smoking & limit alcohol consumption. Become more active and strive to maintain your ideal body weight. And smile because.. "Life is Good"!

    Suggested Use

    Take 2 capsules twice a day with food.

    Recommended use: Use Cholestene with a plan that includes dietary changes and an exercise program.

    Cholestene is intended to be used in conjunction with a heart healthy diet and an exercise program. It is also recommended that one gets a lipid profile, including a liver function test, within 60 days after starting Cholestene. Cholestene is not to be used in conjunction with pharmaceutical lipid lowering drugs.

    Warnings

    Do not use if pregnant, nursing, plan to become pregnant, have a history of liver disease, are an organ transplant recipient, have had major surgery within 10 weeks, or consume more than two alcoholic drinks per day. Discontinue use if experiencing unexplained muscle pain or tenderness, especially if accompanied by flu-like symptoms.

    The use of Cholestene may cause changes in bowel movements, as well as flatulence. Skin irritation may occur, but is unlikely. Taking Cholestene without a meal may cause an upset stomach.
