Scientific Background

Plasma Cholesterol levels are defined by the amount produced by the body and the amount assumed through the diet. Cholesterol is absorbed in the intestine, transported to the liver and then released into the bloodstream. Cholesterol trafficking is mainly regulated by two classes of lipoproteins: low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which deliver cholesterol to the cells and are involved in atherosclerotic processes  and high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which remove cholesterol from cells and raised levels of circulating HDL are associated with decreasing accumulation of atherosclerotic plaques.

When cholesterol levels are significantly higher than physiological levels, conditions such as hypercholesterolaemia may occur, leading to negative effects on the well-being of the body.

Hypercholesterolemia represents a risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease and other metabolic disorders.

Keeping cholesterol levels under physiological levels is important to avoid issues related to hypercholesterolemia.

Clinical Studies

Thanks to its content in Monacolin K from Monascus purpureus it has beneficial effects in maintaining the normal blood cholesterol levels even for a limited period of intake and with minimal modification of diet and physical activity.
