Cholesterol is an essential substance produced by the liver and present in most cells of the body. Transported around by lipoproteins, it is necessary for a number of bodily functions, such as forming cell membranes, producing hormones like estrogen, testosterone and adrenal hormones, aiding metabolism and helping to create bile acids that aid digestion and nutrient absorption.
This unique, potent, and effective formula is excellent for supporting normal, healthy cholesterol levels. This formula contains organic concentrated red yeast rice along with supportive nutrients which makes this formula extremely effective. Red Yeast Rice (Monascus purpureus) is a fermented rice product that has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since the Tang Dynasty. Our Red Yeast Rice is USDA certified organic and is exclusively grown and processed in the US. It is non GMO, clinical strength, and lab tested. ‡

This unique formula combines three herbal ingredients to support healthy triglyceride, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels.‡
- Supports Healthy Cardiovascular System.
- Supports Healthy Blood Sugar Levels.
- Supports Healthy Triglyceride Levels.
- Supports Healthy HDL Levels.
- Supports Healthy Cholesterol and may reduce urinary mevalonate.
- Supports healthy liver function by reduction of TNF-α and CRP.
- Derived from the fruit juice of Citrus Bergamia Rissoet Poit
- Grown in the Calabria region of Italy
- Standardized to contain 11-19% bergamot flavanones
This Herbal Phytosome gives 7 times better absorption versus the herbal extract alone.
Mode of Action.
1. Inhibiting HMG‐CoA Reductase: is an enzyme linked to the liver’s cholesterol production. Melitidine and Brutieridine inhibit the liver’s ability to produce LDL, resulting in reduced cholesterol levels in liver cells.
2. Inhibiting Phosphodiesterases PDEs. Flavonoids in this formula mediate their beneficial effects on lipid and glucose homeostasis by PDE4 and PDE3B modulation. PDE4 plays a critical role in cAMP which regulates energy metabolism and glucose metabolism. PDE3B is crucial for cholesterol metabolism.
3. Activating AMPK can help prevent abdominal fat accumulation, help regulate glucose tolerance, help normalize liver markers, and reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the liver and heart.
CoQ10 is extremely difficult to absorb, so it is critical to take it in this high-absorption form. Note that absorption is enhanced by taking this formula with healthy fats such as eggs and olive oil. Our CoQ10 also increases benefits by including mixed carotenoids and mixed tocopherols, both heart-health enhancing ingredients. CoQ10 supports good heart health and also supports healthy gums. ‡
Since the discovery of CoQ10, facts about its clinical value have lead many to use this product. The proof of its benefits for human health are obvious. Scientific research has established that CoQ10 is one of the most useful natural supplements on the market today. Clinical results have also shown that CoQ10 helps as an adjunct therapy for those taking certain cholesterol lowering medications.
Why Take CoQ10?
As we age, our body produces less CoQ10. This trend leaves our body vulnerable to a CoQ10 deficiency.
- Supports the heart, immune system & brain health
- Helps increase overall energy levels.
- Helpful while on cholesterol medications.
- Helps support the immune system.
- Aids in increased cellular energy production.
- Supports heart health Why Use OUR CoQ10?
- The unique blend of ingredients in this formula makes absorption much greater than that of encapsulated dry CoQ10 powder.
- 83% of those taking this formula had an increase in energy vs only 30% of those taking CoQ10 capsules.
This formula also contains natural carotenoids, natural mixed tocopherols & rice bran oil. These ingredients help to increase the absorption of the CoQ10 but also have supportive and beneficial effects of their own.
These additional ingredients are far superior compared to most CoQ10 formulas on the market. Many formulations utilize soy or other oils that are not as supportive or healthy as the mixed tocopherols or natural beta carotene.
