   Choleast
Choleast (red yeast rice extract) is an extract from Monascus purpureus WENT, an organism grown on rice. After centuries of use in traditional Chinese medicine, it was discovered that red yeast rice is a potent inhibitor of 3-hydroxy-3- methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase), the rate-limiting enzyme in cholesterol synthesis. The fatty acids, phytosterols, isoflavones, and proteins in Choleast help maintain a healthful balance of cholesterol and related blood lipids in the body. Thorne combines red yeast rice extract with coenzyme Q10.

PREGNANCY WARNING
If pregnant, nursing, or trying to conceive, do not use this product.

OTHER WARNINGS
Red yeast rice can cause gastritis, abdominal discomfort, and elevated liver enzymes. It is possible that reactions similar to those caused by HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor drugs (statins) can be caused by red yeast; however, those adverse reactions have not been reported for red yeast rice extracts.

This product may cause a temporary and harmless red coloring of the stool.
