Official Website: http://www.thorne.com

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.

best Red Yeast available
July 7, 2013
After trying various brands of red yeast rice, my doctor strongly recommended me to take Choleast since end of 2012. Before taking Choleast, my cholesterol level had dropped from 235 to approx. 210 by taking other Red Yeast Rice but could never go down below 210. After taking 2 months, lab test showed my cholesterol went down to 205 then, a week ago, my cholesterol level dramatically goes under 200 level - at 196. This never happens in past 10 years. I will stick to Choleast from now on - until better substitute shows up...
Pros:
it works
Cons:
price can be lower?

Pros:

This is a statin
June 26, 2013
I took Choleast for over a year on the advice of my naturopath. She had me on them even before she saw my cholesterol levels. Turned out they were great even before taking Choleast. After about a year I started experiencing severe muscle and joint pain. Did some research and discovered that even a natural statin can cause symptoms like the pharmaceutical kind. Discontinued Choleast and after several months my system got rid of it and the pain is gone.

I was skeptical at first, but amazingly-IT WORKED!!!
February 10, 2012
My physician wanted to prescribe a statin for me; I'm 43, my total cholesterol was 245 with elevated LDL at 155 but normal triglycerides (November 3, 2011). I was (am still a little) overweight as well with a STRONG family history of high cholesterol. I have not changed my diet in the past two years (I follow an extremely healthy lifestyle as of 2010), exercise moderately 6 days a week (1 hour cardio 6 days & light weights 3 days). After asking him if I had any options, he suggested (grudgingly) trying Red Rice Yeast extract; he didn't know how much I should take and (he) felt it wouldn't work. He was also only giving me three months to try it. After spending a solid week doing my own extensive research (I'm a nurse), I found Thorne Research - specifically Choleast. I ordered only 3 bottles to try, and said a prayer. Three months later, my total cholesterol (as of 2/3/2012) is now 204 (normal is below 199), my LDL is now 114 and both my triglycerides and HDL are still totally normal. I DID LOSE 13 POUNDS, but that is really not a large enough difference in weight to warrant this significant difference. The only thing - THE ONLY SINGULAR thing I did differently was take Choleast...I'm amazed. My physician was (and still is) absolutely stunned! Choleast is just phenomenal! I'm definitely staying on Choleast! Both my doctor and I are confident that after I drop my remaining 15 pounds and continuing Choleast, My lipid panel will be well within normal limits! I DO HAVE ONE SIDE EFFECT WITH Choleast: Since I've started taking Choleast, every couple of days my latissimus dorsi muscles (the muscles around the back of the ribcage) ache a bit. It is not severe and I do not need to take any pain medication for it - but it does happen. This is a common side effect of statin medications; since red rice yeast is the basis of statin medications, I did expect it. Some people who take Choleast don't experience any side effects, but again - this is the ONLY side effect I've experienced. I don't have any stomach upset nor do I have any upper or lower GI issues. Choleast is a wonderful product and I recommend it highly. I take two capsules twice daily...it does not interact with any of my vitamins/minerals! Choleast has been a real life-saver!!
Pros:
Highly effective, no GI upset, priced reasonably, purity.
Cons:
I do experience some muscle aches. HOWEVER, it is not severe and all I have to do is sit down & rest for 30 minutes.

Choleast is #1 !
February 24, 2011
I began taking Choleast in 2010, one month prior to my annual cholesterol blood work. This was per the advice of an alternative health doctor because I did not want to take any of the statin medications. I have always had high cholesterol, and it also runs in my family. After taking 2 capsules once a day my cholesterol dropped from the mid 200's to 199. I'm sorry to say that I was not on an exercise program at the time, as this would have naturally lowered it more, but the Choleast itself is the only thing I did differently. I would highly recommend Choleast, but would consult your regular physician (as you should taking any medication...I am an R.N....if you have any liver or kidney dysfunction).
Pros:
Easy to swallow capsules, no bad taste left in your mouth like some natural herbs are notorious for.
Cons:
There is nothing that I "dislike", but consulting your physician and taking the product AS DIRECTED is a must, and common sense. However, not everyone does what their doctor tells them to do and how to do it.

Works Great
February 23, 2011
Years ago I tried a prescription cholesterol lowering drug at the urging of my doctor, and after just a few weeks on the drug my liver enzymes went through the roof. My doctor told me to immediately stop taking the drug. Subsequent to that, I searched out a nutritionist who recommended that I try Choleast to lower my cholesterol. I have been using Choleast for eight years, and it has done a fantastic job of keeping my cholesterol within an acceptable range -- and with no side effects whatsoever. I would recommend Choleast to anyone who wants to lower their cholesterol without the aid of prescription drugs and nasty side effects.

Many years ago I saw an article by a noted compound pharmacist about Choleast and the fact that he had taken it and lowered his cholesterol reading by 100 points - it was good enough for me! I've used it for over five years and have had similar results. It's effective with no side effects! It's an amazing alternative to prescription cholesteral-lowering drugs.

Lowered my Cholesterol
January 27, 2011
I had to give up Crestor as it had too many side effects for me. I went on Red Rice Yeast via my own research and to the subtle advice of my Doctor, who said, "its' worth a try!" I lowered my Cholesterol 40 pts to a combined total of 160 from 204. After my last Blood test results, my Doctor actually called me and asked "how many capsules are you taking? I said 2 0r 3 /day, depending if I remember to take the 3rd at night! He said, well I guess don't stop! He advised to take a KRILL tablet also (fish oil) to raise the good HDL a bit. And I am. Patient "heal thyself" And I'm going on 60! and a little out a shape and a little overweight, and had 2 heart attacks 3yrs ago! I just recently quit Plavix, cuz that was making me fell goofy too! in as much as restless sleepless nights. Quit that stuff and I'm back too sleeping like I use too,...ROCK HARD! and OH ya, quitting the Plavix, made that come back too!
Pros:
This is In capsual form in lieu of tablets just easier to digest. I take 2 first thing in the morning with a few other vitamins pills and I don't get that slight nausea from the capsuls as I do with HARD Tabs.
Cons:
Nothing going to keep on!

Good product, great service.
January 12, 2011
Two Naturopaths have recommended this to me after I refused to go on traditional medicine. Choleast has worked as well or better (I think) since my good cholesterol continues to go up and my 'bad' to go down. I'm sticking with it.
Pros:
Seems to be working.
Cons:
No problems at all with it.

Down, down, down...my Cholesterol
January 7, 2011
I started Choleast because a friend recommended it. I had been looking for something better than the red yeast products I was finding at the store. Too many additives in those! My cholesterol was fairly high, and this has helped to bring it down. I like that it has CoQ10 in it as well.
Pros:
It has lowered my cholesterol. I like that it has CoQ10 in it, so I don't have to purchase that separately.

It works and it's natural
December 29, 2010
I've been using Choleast for about 3 years now. Every brand does not work. This one does and it was recommended by my naturalpath. Why change success? When I order it online it comes within days and I don't pay shipping.

Great Product
December 19, 2010
I've been using Choleast for about 3 years now because of problems with Lipitor. It was recommended by my Naturopathic Physician. I have tried other brands of red yeast and my cholesterol numbers shot up. Most "natural" products are not regulated so you don't know what you're getting. With Choleast I do.
Pros:
Everything!
Cons:
Nothing!

GREAT PRODUCT!
December 5, 2010
THIS IS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO A PRESCRIBED STATIN WHICH I AM NOT ABLE TO TAKE DUE TO SYMPTOMS OF MUSCLE PAIN. WITH CHOLEAST, I HAVE NONE OF THESE SYMPTOMS AND IT IS RECOMMENDED BY MY INTERNIST AND DOES THE JOB..THIS PRICE IS A GREAT DEAL SINCE THE CHEAPEST I HAVE FOUND ON THE RETAIL MARKET IS $33.99 ..PLUS NO TAX AND NO SHIPPING WITH PURE FORMULAS..I WILL BUY FROM THIS SITE AGAIN!
Pros:
I LIKE CHOLEAST BECAUSE IT DOES THE TRICK FOR ME!
Cons:
NOTHING TO DISLIKE

I have been on choleast for at least four years. I have been advised to take only the Thorne Research capsules and not any generic red yeast rice products.
