  • The main ingredient in Thorne Research’s Choleast is a red-pigmented yeast called Monascus purpureus that is grown on rice. Many studies have shown that this red yeast may support heart health when added to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

    The yeast in Choleast contains naturally occurring substances called monacolins and phytosterols campesterol‚ sigmasterol and beta-sitosterol.

    At least 15 mg of CoQ10 is in each capsule of Choleast. Coenzyme Q10 is necessary for basic cell functioning‚ but the body’s levels of it naturally decline with age. Those with a CoQ10 deficiency may notice changes in memory and cognitive function. Supplementing with CoQ10 can enhance antioxidant activity‚ thus reducing harmful lipid oxidation in the body.

    Thorne Research goes to great lengths to ensure that each capsule only contains minimal amounts of citrinin‚ an unavoidable mycotoxin that comes as a result of the fermentation process. Mycotoxins‚ which can be found in larger quantities in many competing products‚ may cause inflammation and other undesirable side effects. Under testing‚ Choleast was found to contain less than 1/20 of the standard rates of citrinin found in red yeast rice products.

    Choleast also contains higher concentrations of naturally occurring monacolins. Some competitors may reach similar levels‚ but they do so through fortification (adding monacolins after the fermentation process). Choleast is produced to be in compliance with GMP regulations‚ so that means you can trust the strength‚ composition‚ identity and purity of each ingredient.

    Each bottle of Choleast contains 120 vegetarian capsules in order to promote cardiovascular wellbeing.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Superb results!

    Choleast was recommended to me by my sister-in-law who claimed to have had great results. I am here to tell you that she may have underestimated the potential. When my doctor (who is a cholesterol expert) examined my blood test results, she was astounded to see that the total number dropped from 208 to 135. This includes an increase in the good number from 40 to 53 which, according to her, is almost unheard of in a 73 year old male. She intends to recommend this product to suitable cases. Thank you Pure Formulas!

    Pros

      It works better than I dreamed it could.

    Cons

      The only con is that it is a little expensive but what price can be put upon good health? Still, I wouldn't argue if the price was lowered a bit.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Choleast by Thorne Research

    We have eaten a health conscious, vegetarian diet and have meditated regularly (twice daily) for the past 33 years. About 5 yeas ago, Choleast Thorne Research was prescribed to my husband when he was diagnosed with high blood pressure and rising cholesterol levels. Choleast, in conjunction with a few other natural supplements, has helped bring his bp and cholesterol back into normal ranges.

    Pros

      We believe that all Thorne products are of the highest quality. About 20 years ago, my MD recommended Thorne products to support me through my child bearing years. Now, age 61, I still always check them first when a new supplement has been prescribed or recommend to my family by my MD or my naturopath.

    Cons

      None yet.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Choleast works for managing high cholest

    Choleast has made it possible for me to not be on statins which cause me muscle pain. I strongly recommend that people try this alternative to managing high cholsterol!

    Pros

      It works.

    Cons

      I dont notice ANY side effects (like I do with perscription statins). The only con is the cost but for me it is worth it.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Choleast 120 Vegetarian Capsules

    Its been not quite one month since my wife began taking Choleast 120 Vegetarian Capsules. Since she isnt scheduled for a blood test until June we wont know if this supplement is helping to reduce her cholesterol levels. Due to the many great reviews we are hoping that Choleast 120 Vegetarian Capsules will reduce her cholesterol levels before her doctor prescribes her cholesterol medication.

    Pros

      Capsules easy to swallow.

    Cons

      None so far.

  • Q Carol Geroux on 8/30/2014

    I may have hypercholesterolemia. Citrinin, a mycotoxin.....more on its inflammatory effect. I've had chronic, systemic inflammation for 20 years; have used many supplements, dietary changes and now bio-identical hormones to address this inflammation. If I took Choleast how might it effect me in inflammation terms????
