Colespol® Formula is a nutritional supplement made from ingredients traditionally used to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
Red yeast rice supplements contain monacolin and work similarly to statins to reduce cholesterol production in the liver. According to published studies, it lowers cholesterol levels, reduces LDL cholesterol oxidation, platelet aggregation, increases smooth muscle growth and relieves symptoms of cardiovascular diseases. It also acts through the HMGCoA pathway, but through a different mechanism of action than statins. Niacin (Vitamin B3) has a well-known hypo-triglyceridemic effect. It has been seen that the effect of red yeast rice is related to a synergy between the various therapeutic agents, among them, it has been shown that the combination of red yeast rice, polycosanols and niacin induces a significant decrease in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
