Balanced blood pressure and lipid levels (e.g. triglycerides, cholesterol) are important for healthy arteries, heart and blood circulation. Red Sterol Complex provides red yeast rice and plant sterols to help maintain healthy blood pressure and lipid levels. Red yeast rice has been eaten in China for centuries and is made by fermenting rice with the yeast Monascus purpureus (once fermented, the yeast is inactivated). Red Sterol Complex also provides the plant sterols beta sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol and brassicasterol, plus the antioxidant vitamin E, which helps protect blood lipids against the harmful effects of oxidation, together with cinnamon bark.
