CHINEESE RED YEAST RICE: Chinese red yeast rice has been shown to balance cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL levels. This benefit goes significantly beyond the management of dietary fats and oils, by providing moderation of the body’s production of cholesterol. In addition, Chinese red yeast rice contains other natural phytochemicals, such as betasitosterol, stigma sterol, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids, which provide greater cholesterol balancing. Chinese red yeast rice is the product of rice on which red yeast (Monascus Purpureus) has been fermented.

It is helpful in states of fat malabsorption such as with cystic fibrosis & other pancreatic deficiency syndromes
ARTICHOKE LEAF EXTRACT is made from the long, serrated basal leaves of the plant, which contain the highest concentration of biologically active compounds. These compounds have displayed the ability to maintain healthy digestion and liver function. Chlorogenic acid and cynarin are two of the active compounds found in this extract. Chlorogenic acid positively affects glucose levels in the body in those already within normal range and may support healthy body weight. The compound cynarin, which is found almost exclusively in artichokes, may support digestion and maintain cholesterol levels already within a healthy range
