AOR’s Met SYN-568-R™ is red yeast rice formulated with Ankascin 568-R. Red yeast rice is made by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus, a traditional Chinese culinary and medicinal product grown on white rice. Red yeast rice has been clinically shown to promote healthy cholesterol levels. The fermentation of red yeast rice results in the production of a number of different compounds, including various monacolins, monascin, and ankaflavin, that are used to manage cholesterol levels.
One of red yeast rice compounds, monacolin K, is chemically identical to lovastatin, a synthetically produced pharmaceutical drug used in cholesterol management. Since these compounds are identical, they can exhibit the same side effects, such as muscle pain and breakdown. AOR’s MET SYN-568-R™ is subjected to a process that removes monacolin K, which means that it will not produce statin-like side effects. Rather, its benefits are due to the other compounds in red yeast rice extract which also have cholesterol balancing activity, and do not produce these side effects.
AOR’s Met SYN-568-R™ promotes healthy cardiovascular function without the undesirable side effects of monacolin K.
