Fermented red yeast rice is primarily common in China. Rice is fermented with the mould fungus Monascus purpureus, which gives the rice its characteristic, intense red colour. Besides its function as food, it is also part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine. Among other things, the red yeast rice is said to promote the digestion and to be of importance for the blood´s flow characteristics.

Valuable gift of nature with the potential to protect the heart

An American-Chinese research team investigated the potential to protect the heart of the natural product in a large scientific study. The researchers were able to show that the red yeast rice can be a valuable remedy for the health of the heart and the blood vessels.

“It´s fascinating that a natural product has such a strong effect”, the director of studies David M. Capuzzi of the Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia explains. He conducted the study with his colleague Zonliang Lu of the Fuwai Hospital in Beijing.
