About Red Yeast Rice
In addition, it is used to provide the red coloring in various food items, including pastries and pickled tofu, and to make red rice wine and vinegar in many Asian countries.
Well-documented clinical trials have concluded that red yeast rice is effective in maintaining healthy levels of LDL cholesterol.*
Sylvan’s Red Yeast Rice is well tolerated and limits or eliminates the side-effects which are common in many similar products, including flushing, joint and muscle pain.*
This is good news for patients who are seeking to actively manage their LDL cholesterol, or maintain healthy lipid levels naturally!*
Made in the USA
Each batch of Sylvan’s Red Yeast Rice starts out growing in a farmer’s field in Arkansas; yes, you read that right, Arkansas!
Once harvested, the USDA certified organic rice is cleaned to remove any debris, and milled to remove the covering from the rice kernel. Then it’s dried and packed for shipment.
When it arrives at our facility in Pennsylvania, the rice is cooked, sterilized and allowed to ferment with a reddish-purple yeast, Monascus purpureus. This gives the product its distinctive color and natural health-supporting properties.*
When fermentation is complete, the rice is dried and ground into a powder, which is available in both bulk and capsule forms.
Fun fact: farmers in Arkansas have been growing rice since 1904, and they grow more rice than any other state in the U.S!
