The power of a natural ingredient, plant sterols, to help manage healthy levels of blood cholesterol†
Weider Red Yeast Rice Plus, through its phytosterol content, is a natural product that works in conjunction with meals low in saturated fat and cholesterol to help lower total and LDL cholesterol. And lowering total and LDL cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.†
Take Control Naturally with Weider Red Yeast Rice Plus!
Research has shown that populations with a low incidence of coronary heart disease have dietary patterns that are not only low in total fat, especially saturated fat and cholesterol, but are also relatively high in plant foods that contain phytosterols, dietary fiber and other components.†
According to the FDA, ”Food or dietary supplements containing at least 400 mg per serving of Phytosterols taken twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 800 mg, as a part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease” (21 CFR 101.83)
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol are diets that contain 10 percent or less of calories from saturated fat and total fat intake between 20 to 35 percent of calories. Recommended daily cholesterol intakes are 300 mg or less.
