Functional Red Yeast Rice
Functional Red Yeast Rice is obtained through fermentation of
grains with Monascus purpureus strains.
Functional Red Yeast Rice, a great invention of ancient China, was
used as a Chinese medicine to strengthen spleen, improve the
function of digestive system, promote the function of
cardiovascular system. Modern clinical research shows that red
yeast rice contains several physiological active matters, such as
Lovastatin, which can adjust abnormal blood lipid index, 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 diet
supplement or food additive, red yeast rice is widely used in
health food, medicine, pastry, wine, drink, cosmetic, and so on. A
kind of medicine, which contains red yeast rice, is used in

■Main Function Ingredient and Action Mechanism
◆MonacolinK: The benefit of Red Yeast Rice is attributed to the
presence of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor,that control the amount of
cholesterol produced in the liver. It has been hypothesized that
relatively high concentrations of unsaturated fatty acids and other
natural compounds found in Red Yeast Rice may work in concert with
HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors to provide additional health benefit.
◆Ergosterol: prevent osteoporosis.
- γ －aminobutyric acid: reduce blood pressure.
- Natural Isoflavone: prevent menopause syndrome and osteoporosis.
■MonacolinK Structure and Characteristic
Lactone form of Monacolin-k, a pre-drug (Molecular structure as
fig.1), has no activity, it need to be hydrolyzed by
carboxyesterases, then is converted to active acid form (Molecular
structure as fig.2), so can exert its lipid-reducing effect in
Molecular structure fig.1 Molecular structure fig.2
The capability of producing carboxyesterasesshowed biggish
individual difference, even some individuals are completely
missing, so the effect of lowering blood-lipid of Lactone Form
monacolin-k must be different for different individuals. By now,
Acid MonacolinK of our company functional red yeast rice is above
60% in total MonacolinK.
