New Care Cholesterol Balance is a formula based on red yeast rice. A daily intake of 10 mg monacoline K from red yeast rice (2 capsules) helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
Red yeast rice is an important part of Asian cuisine and has been consumed in large quantities for centuries. Red yeast rice is produced by fermentation of rice with the yeast Monascus purpureus. This gives the rice a dark red color. During the fermentation process, the typical ingredients are formed. The most important of these is monacoline K.
On New Care Cholesterol Balance, red palm oil is added in addition to red yeast rice. Red palm oil includes carotenoids. Carotenoids are the precursors of vitamin A and are converted into the body as needed into this fat-soluble vitamin. Red palm oil also contains the fat-soluble vitamin E in the form of tocopherols and tocotrienols.
There are a total of four fat-soluble vitamins, namely vitamin A, E, D and K. New Care Cholesterol balance contains the last two in the form of vitamin D3 and vitamin K2
