Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement

Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. Numerous studies in China and the United States have demonstrated that red yeast rice preparations are helpful in maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels. This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining good cardiovascular health.

Choleast-900 contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice, without standardization or fortification. In addition to natural monacolins, red yeast rice contains the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular health.

Suggested Use

As recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine.

Trusted manufacturer

This is the brand most recommended for red yeast rice both by my naturopath and a Chinese medicine practitioner. This particular formulation, Choleast-900 also provides more of the product than the regular Choleast.

I have used this product for about 4 years now, it has really helped to get my cholesterol under control where I was looking at having to take statins. I also recommend increasing exercise by without choleast, I really believe the cholesterol would have not reduced as much.
