Red Yeast Rice + Garlic

AOR’s Red Yeast Rice + Garlic capitalizes on the synergistic interplay between both constituents to yield enhanced outcomes. Red Yeast Rice (RYR) primarily acts as an antioxidant, preventing cholesterol oxidation that can lead to plaque formation. Oxidized LDL is notably atherogenic and contributes to arterial plaque buildup. Antioxidants aid in maintaining cholesterol in its normal reduced state, supporting the health of blood vessels. RYR collaborates with garlic to promote vasodilation, facilitating smooth blood flow and reducing the deposition of fats in blood vessels.

AOR utilizes the patented extract Ankascin 568, standardized to two potent pigments—ankascin and monascin. These pigments, formed during fermentation, have been researched for their ability to increase LDL receptor production, enhance HDL levels, and promote cholesterol excretion through bile production.

Allicin, a primary active compound in garlic, is generated when garlic is crushed or chopped, along with other sulfur-containing compounds like diallyl disulfide and S-allyl cysteine. These compounds are believed to exert various effects on lipid metabolism and cholesterol biosynthesis. Garlic components are thought to moderately inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, and the sulfur-containing compounds possess antioxidant properties that may aid in lowering LDL cholesterol by mitigating LDL particle oxidation.

Furthermore, garlic is presumed to have a mild anticoagulant effect, potentially enhancing overall cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of atherosclerotic plaque formation.
