  • 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.

    Great Product!

    I've been using Choleast by Thorne Research for about 3 years now because of problems with Lipitor. Choleast 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!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    GREAT PRODUCT!

    Choleast by Thorne Research 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 $39.99. Plus no tax and no shipping with PureFormulas. I will continue ordering Choleast.


    Pros

      I like choleast because it does the trick for me!

    Cons

      Nothing to dislike.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Down down down...my Cholesterol

    I started Choleast by Thorne Research 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 Choleast 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 dont have to purchase that separately.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Choleast

    Both my integrative medicine doctor and my cardiologist recommended Choleast by Thorne Research to me. I take two choleast capsules each day and have seen good improvements to my cholesterol numbers. 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.

    Good product & great service!

    Two Naturopaths have recommended Choleast by Thorne Research 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.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    It works and its natural!

    I've been using Choleast by Thorne Research for about 3 years now. Not every brand works. Thorne Research 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.

  • 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????
