Monascus Purpurens: Red yeast rice, also called Went Yeast, has been used for centuries in China as both food and medicine. It is made by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpurens over red rice.
In Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is used to lower cholesterol, improve blood circulation, and improve digestion. Monascus Purpurens contains large quantities of monacolin K, which is chemically identical to the active ingredient in the cholesterol-lowering drug “Lovastatin”. Practitioners must be very careful in obtaining the correct herb, as some red rice products contain little or no monacolin K and a contaminant called “citrinin”.
