Colestia
Red rice yeast + Artichoke + Coenzyme Q 10 + Policosanol

Monacolin K from red yeast rice contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 10 mg of monacolin K from fermented red yeast rice preparations.

WHY DOES COLESTIA CONTAIN OTHER INGREDIENTS IN ADDITION TO RED YEAST?

Because all the ingredients of Colestia work in synergy with one another.

Policosanol

It is a mixture of substances where octacosanol (60%) predominates that are obtained from sugar cane and that according to several published studies, interferes with cholesterol levels in blood plasma.

COENZYME Q10

Also called Ubiquinone, is a compound that acts like vitamins and has antioxidant properties.

ARTICHOKES

They have traditionally been used as a protector of liver cells, and to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. These properties have been widely described in the scientific literature.
RECOMMENDATIONS

It helps to control cholesterol blood levels.

WHY SHOULD WE CONTROL OUR CHOLESTEROL?

Cholesterol performs vital functions in your body. However, when blood cholesterol levels are high, you run the risk of accumulating it, forming atherosclerotic plaques in the arteries that can lead to serious consequences for your health.

WHERE DOES CHOLESTEROL COME FROM?

The contribution of cholesterol to the body comes from two sources:

  • your diet
  • the synthesis of cholesterol in your liver.

The greatest amount comes from the liver, but it is in the contribution of your diet that you can more easily act by changing your eating habits.

Section

We talk about “good” cholesterol and “bad” cholesterol. High values of HDL-cholesterol (good cholesterol) reduce the risk of atherosclerotic plaque formation, while high levels of LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol) increase that risk.

Therefore, the goal is to lower LDL-cholesterol and increase HDL-cholesterol levels.

WHAT ARE THOSE NORMAL CHOLESTEROL LEVELS?

These are the figures currently recommended:

  • Total cholesterol < 200 mg/dl
  • LDL-cholesterol < 160 mg/dl
  • HDL-cholesterol > 40 mg/dl

WHY IS RED RICE YEAST INTERESTING?

In 1979, a component made by the red yeast of rice was isolated in Japan that was called monacolin K that was able to reduce the synthesis of cholesterol at the level of the liver. Subsequently, in 2011 the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) issued a favourable scientific opinion on the consumption of monacolin K from this yeast (Monascus purpureus), which demonstrates a cause-effect relationship between consumption of 10 mg per day of monacolin K and maintaining normal concentrations of cholesterol in blood.
