Red Yeast Rice (RYR) is a natural product that has been used by Asian traditional herbalists for centuries and is produced by fermenting Red Yeast (Monascus purpureus) with rice. It is commonly used in cooking to enhance the color and flavor of foods. Red Yeast Rice Plus includes Alpha-Lipoic Acid and CoQ10 for free radical protection, as well as Silymarin to support healthy liver function.* CoQ10 is also known for its cardiovascular supporting properties.* This product is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, an unwanted by-product of RYR fermentation process.
