LifeTime Vitamins Red Yeast Rice & Policosanol 60 Vegetarian Capsules
LifeTime Vitamins Red Yeast Rice & Policosanol combines two natural and proven-effective ingredients, Red Yeast Rice and Policosanol. In Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is used to promote blood circulation, soothe upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen, a body organ that destroys old blood cells and filters foreign substances. In addition, this dietary supplement has been used traditionally for bruised muscles, hangovers, indigestion, and colic in infants. Recently, it has been discovered that red yeast rice contains substances that are similar to prescription medications that lower cholesterol.
Policosanol is a unique natural product derived from sugar cane wax and beeswax: It has proved effective at reducing cholesterol levels and for some individuals may be a reasonable natural alternative to the commonly prescribed statin-type cholesterol-lowering drugs. Most research using the sugarcane-derived form of policosanol has been conducted in Cuba, in both animals and humans. The studies showed that policosanol not only reduced cholesterol levels, but also had positive effects on other cardiac risk factors, through actions such as reducing platelet clumping and inhibiting the development of atherosclerosis. A 2002 analysis in the American Heart Journal reviewed more than 60 clinical trials of sugar cane-derived policosanol that involved more than 3000 patients. The authors concluded that policosanol is a very promising phytochemical alternative to classic lipid-lowering agents such as statins.

Today, nutrition has gone beyond capsules and tablets in a bottle. As the array of nutritional products has grown, so have the methods of consuming them. LifeTime offers traditional capsules, tablets and powders, but has also mastered the “art” of creating liquid products that deliver the nutrition you are looking for in a very absorbable and delicious way. Children, senior citizens and those with restricted swallowing ability may find it difficult to take pills or tablets and LifeTime’s liquids have become a preferred way to consume nutritional supplements to solve this problem. LifeTime liquids are assimilated more easily and, as a result, are more bioavailable for immediate use by the body - a key factor as we age and as our digestive systems slow down over time.
