Cardio Tri-Plex 120 softgels
Red yeast rice (RYR) is a traditional Chinese culinary ingredient prepared by using Monascus purpureus fermented with rice. It has been used in China for about 1,200 years as a food preservative, natural colorant in the production of red rice wine and red bean curd, as well as by traditional herbalists for many other purposes. A dietary staple in some Asian countries, RYR is consumed in some areas as estimated levels of 14-55 grams per day per person. The extracts from YRY contain starch, sterols, isoflavones, monounsaturated fatty acids, and other compounds that contribute to overall health.*
Protocol For Life BalanceTM Cardio Tri-PlexTM also contains fish oil, a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fats are known to support cardiovascular health as well as for their ability to support a balanced, healthy inflammatory response. * In addition, Coenzyme Q10, known for its key role in cellular energy production, has been included for its potent antioxidant properties and for enhanced cardiovascular support.*
Clinical studies have consistently shown that the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, can help to maintain triglyceride levels within the healthy range. In addition, scientific evidence indicates that EPA supports a healthy inflammatory response. These effects are among the many beneficial properties of omega-3 fatty acids that contribute to a healthy cardiovascular system. Red Yeast Rice is produced to provide the optimal concentrations of active constituents. The Red Yeast Rice in Protocol For Life BalanceTM Cardio Tri-PlexTM is carefully selected to avoid the presence of citrinin, a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process. The third cardiovascular support component of this formula is CoQ10.*
