|Benefits of Red yeast rice and Coq10 compound |
Red yeast is a useful substance made by fermenting a special type of red yeast ( Monascus purpureus ) in rice. This substance has been in use in the recent past in countries such as china for food preservation and coloring.
However, this substance has found its way into the field of health as it has been found to have some medicinal value. Red yeast rice has monacolins which are naturally occurring substances that work to lower levels of cholesterol in the body. Statin drugs are known to work the same way. Coenzyme Q10 is commonly known as CoQ10.This is a compound that is fat soluble and as such, it is a vitamin that doubles up as an antioxidant. Therefore, due to its anti-oxidation properties, it is found in most organs of the body and more so in large amounts in those cells that require a lot of energy. A good example is the heart.
Why should a combination of red yeast rice and Coq10 be taken?
Extracts of red rice yeast are by far the best known solution to lowering of cholesterol. Red yeast rice falls under the category of natural statins. These are the exact same components used to make drugs which are aimed at lowering cholesterol. In light of this fact, it becomes more reasonable to take in red yeast rice rather than the drugs as it contains all the molecules. Drugs only offer just one molecule for a single treatment.
Coq10 is synthesized and produced by the body for anti-oxidation purposes. Intake of red yeast rice inhibits the production of Coq10.Therefore, if you take red yeast rice on a regular basis, it becomes advisable to also take in Coq10.Health experts recommend a dose of 30 to 60 mg of Coq10 supplement every day.
Additionally, these two compounds are known to provide a good cardiovascular health to people taking them.
