A healthy heart can put your mind at ease. Maxion Nutrition's Red Yeast Rice capsules are formulated with rice that has been fermented by red yeast; a medicinal practice that has been used in China for more than a thousand years. Their active ingredients are monacolins, which are compounds that block the body's natural ability to produce cholesterol. This extra strength formula also has choline, lecithin, policosanol, and phytosterols, which each also aid in lowering both LDL and total cholesterol levels in the body, working synergistically to improve your cardiovascular health.

- 300 mg Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpureus fermented Oryza sativa, whole)
