NOW Supplements, Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpureus)
1,200 mg, Nutritional Support, 60 Tablets
Red yeast rice is a natural product
that has been used by Asian traditional herbalists since approximately
800 A.D. Produced by fermenting red yeast (Monascus purpureus) with
white rice, red yeast rice is commonly used in cooking applications to
enhance the color and flavor of foods. Peking duck is an example of the
coloration and flavor imparted by red yeast rice. NOW? Red Yeast Rice is
carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, an unwanted
by-product of the fermentation process.
