1. Red Yeast Rice
Healthy Inflammatory Response
Clinical studies have consistently shown that the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA‚ can help to maintain triglyceride levels within the healthy range. In addition‚ scientific evidence indicates that EPA supports a healthy inflammatory response. These effects are among the many beneficial properties of omega-3 fatty acids that contribute to a healthy cardiovascular system. Red Yeast Rice is produced to provide the optimal concentrations of active constituents. The Red yeast Rice in Protocol For Life Balance™ Cardio Tri-Plex™ is carefully selected to avoid the presence of citrinin‚ a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process. The third cardiovascular support component of this formula is CoQ10.
Red yeast rice (RYR) is a traditional Chinese culinary ingredient prepared by using Monascus purpureus fermented with rice. It has been used in China for about 1‚200 years as a food preservative‚ natural colorant in the production of red rice wine and red bean curd‚ as well as by traditional herbalists for many other purposes. A dietary staple in some areas at estimated levels of 14-55 grams per day per person. The extracts from RYR contain starch‚ sterols‚ isoflavones‚ monounsaturated fatty acids‚ and other compounds that contribute to overall health.
Protocol For Life Balance™ Cardio Tri-Plex™ also contains fish oil‚ a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fats are known to support cardiovascular health as well as for their ability to support a balanced‚ healthy inflammatory response. In addition‚ CoQ10‚ known for its key role in cellular energy production‚ has been included for its potent antioxidant properties and for enhanced cardiovascular support.
