Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

Natural management of already normal cholesterol levels should involve dietary and lifestyle modifications, including a low-saturated fat, low-carbohydrate diet, and aerobic exercise. As additional supplementation, several nutrients and botanicals can be used to help maintain lipid metabolism and support the already normal cholesterol levels.

The cholesterol fraction that appears to be of most concern is LDL cholesterol, and, in particular, oxidized LDL. Antioxidant supplementation can be beneficial for decreasing the oxidation of LDL.

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 blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range. This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining cardiovascular health.

In addition to naturally occurring substances called 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.

The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg CoQ10 per capsule.

Excellent review!

Posted by 5354914526277370522 on Feb 10, 2017

I have been on this product for three years for cholesterol. Previously I had been on statins which eventually caused severe cramping in my legs. My doctor monitors my cholesterol and is very happy with this product. It works better with some exercise which is no problem for me because I love to walk.

Reducing Cholesterol

Posted by Reviewer2680913 on Nov 30, 2016

This was recommended to me by my alternative doctor to help reduce my LDL cholesterol. After 3 months, it went down considerably , so now I reduce the # of capsules I take to see if it makes a difference in the test which I'll do again in January.
