Red yeast rice is produced by fermenting polished rice with various strains of the yeast Monascus purpureus. It contains numerous natural extracts including monacolins and sterols.

Choosing the right red yeast rice can be difficult as its popularity has resulted in a broad array of products that vary widely in both quality and purity. Of particular concern is citrinin, a potentially toxic compound formed during the manufacturing process that has been found in some red yeast rice supplements.

Life Extension® does not make a red yeast rice supplement, but has evaluated commercial sources using the most sophisticated high-resolution analytical techniques to detect citrinin content.

Individuals who wish to obtain a red yeast rice supplement along with other beneficial nutrients may choose Cho-Less, which adds the following ingredients which may help maintain healthy lipid levels which are already within a normal range: artichoke leaf extract1-8, pantethine, guggul standardized extract, beta-sitosterol, niacin and policosanol.9-22
