RED YEAST RICE
Red Yeast Rice is a naturally fermented rice product that has been used for centuries in China as a food, tonic, and coloring agent. It provides the red coloring in various food preparations including pastries, pickled tofu, red rice vinegar, duck, and traditional wines from China, Korea, and Japan. Its use has been documented in traditional Chinese medicine and herbology as far back as the Tang Dynasty.
In 1997 an American company, Sylvan Bio, Inc., began investigating the health supporting properties of Red Yeast Rice. This organic product is vegetarian, non-GMO and 100% grown, produced and bottled in the USA. It has been determined in several well documented clinical trials that Red Yeast Rice (RYR) is effective in maintaining healthy LDL cholesterol levels*. Sylvan Bio’s Red Yeast Rice is well-tolerated, and is designed to be used by adults to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, in combination with a healthy lifestyle.
U.S. MANUFACTURER WITH MODERN PRODUCTION METHODS
Sylvan Bio has been the sole manufacturer of USDA organic Red Yeast Rice in the U.S. for over twenty years. Sylvan utilizes modern American aseptic manufacturing processes, which vigorously test for and prevent unwanted pathogens, heavy metals and other contaminants. This cannot always be said of imported Red Yeast Rice products.
