ACIENT CHINESE SECRET: RED YEAST RICE FOR A HEALTHY HEART
It has been widely established in the medical field that highserum cholesterol is a predisposing factor to diseases, especially coronary artery disease. Taking control of one's cholesterol levels can reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall health...but you've got to keep that cholesterol in check. 
 
Now there's a natural dietary supplement available to help reduce serum cholesterol levels without a doctor's prescription. The product is Cholestene, made with red yeast rice, and the company behind it, HPF of Hatboro, PA, says it is effective, safe, and available over the counter. 
 
The fat on cholesterol. Chemically speaking, cholesterol is a lipid. Most of it is made by the liver from a wide variety of foods, but especially from saturated fats. However, some cholesterol is absorbed directly from cholesterol-rich foods, such as eggs and dairy products. The level of cholesterol in the blood is directly influenced by diet and heredity. High blood cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis (accumulation of fatty tissue on the inner lining of arteries, or hardening of the arteries), and with it the risk of coronary heart disease or storke. 
 
In her book Chinese Red Yeast Rice, Rita Elkins, M.H., cites data showing that more than 35 million Americans have a total serum cholesterol count over 240, which puts them at risk for cardiovascular disease. "Interestingly," she adds, "even if your cholesterol count falls in the range of 200-239, as it does for over 55 million people, your risk of heart disease is double that of individuals whose cholesterol levels are below 200." 
 
Cholesterol, the good and the bab. Even more important thatn the total cholesterol count, however, is the ratio between the different kinds of cholesterol. Recent research has shown that the risk of developing heart disease can be assessed more accurately by measuring the proportions of the "good" cholesterol - high density lipoproteins (HDL) - and the "bad" - low density lipoproteins (LDL). If there is a higher level of HDLs in the blood, it seems to protect against arterial disease. On the other hand, if most of the cholesterol is in the form of LDLs, the risk of a heart attack, angina, or some other form of heart disease is greater. 
 
Ancient Chinese secret? Red yeast rice is a traditional Chinese dietary staple that has been shown in clinical studies to effectively lower serum lipid levels (cholesterol levels). Also known as Monascus purpureus went yeast, it is prepared by a traditional rice fermentation method. It's proven to contain compounds with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor activity, which is responsible for the inhibition of cholesterol synthesis in the liver. 
 
In addition, red yeast rice also contains unsaturated fatty acids that may help reduce serum lipids. The formula has been used in China since the Ming Dynasty, 633 years ago. 
 
In fact even tody, due to the dialy dietary use of red yeast rice in China, the average cholesterol profile among Chinese people is below 150. Cholestene's sole ingredient is red yeast rice that actually may block the production of cholesterol in the liver. In simpler terms: LDL (bad) cholesterol is taken from the bood, HDL (Good) cholesterol is increased, and as a result of a better LDL to HDL ratio, trigylcerides are reduced as well. 
 
Scientific proof. There have been more than 34 clinical studies assessing the effects of Monascus purpureus went yeast. In one major, randomized clinical trial, 446 hyperlipidemic patients with baseline total serum levels of >230mg/dl were given two capsules of red yeast rice extract (1.2g/day) orally for eight weeks. 
 
Hyperlipidemia is a metabolic disorder characterized by high levels of lipids (or cholesterol) in the bood. All patients maintained their normal lifestyle and diet throughout the trial period. At the end of the treatment period, it was found that serum total cholesterol levels were reduced by an average of 23%, trigylcerides by 36.5%, LDL-cholesterol by 28.5%, and HDL-cholesterol levels increased by 19.6%. Major clinical tests prove it works. 
 
For people whose cholesterol levels are slightly elevated (between 200 and 240mg/dl) red yeast rice is effective at regulating elevated serum cholesterol and triglycerides. 
 
In another study, cited by Elkins, J. Wang and his staff performed a randomized, single-blind trial in 502 patients who were diagnosed with high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. These test subjects had a serum total cholesterol greater thatn or equal to 230, or triglycerides values ranging from 200 to 400. They also had HDL counts that were less than or equal to 40 for men and 45 for women. The patients were divided into four groups, three of which were designated for treatment (600mg of red yeast rice twice a dy) and one was set up as a control (this group received a Chinese herb, Jiaogulan, which is reputed to have cholesterol-lowering properties). 
 
At the end of four weeks, total cholesterol levels in the treatment groups decreased by 17.1%, against a drop of just 4.8% in the control group. LDL counts were down an average of 24.6%, versus an average of 6.3% among the controls. Also, red yeast rice treatment appeared to have effected a 19.8% decrease in serum triglycerides (9.2% for the control group) and a 12.8% rise in HDL levels (4.9% for the controls). 
 
At the end of eight weeks, treated patients showed the following numbers: total cholesterol (down 22.7%); LDL (down 30.9%); and total blood triglycerides (down 34.1%). All these figures were considerably better than the corresponding results seen in the control group. 
 
Adopting a healthy lifestyle. Of course, any prudent person would recognize that, along with taking a supplement like Cholestene, one must make a commitment to staying healthy. By exercising regularly, eating a well-balanced diet, not smoking, maintaining an ideal weight and reducing stress, you and your customers can be on the way to a healthier life.

REVIEW BY EUGENE SCHIFF 
 
In 1921, at the age of 19, Eugene Schiff immigrated to the United States from Hungary and entered the College of Pharmacy (now Wayne University) in Detroit, Mich., where he majored in pharmaceutics. Upon becoming a pharmacist, Schiff opened a drug store in Detroit, but soon realized his real interest was in foods with special health features. 
 
In the late 1930s, Schiff pioneered the use of whey for human consumption and formed Schiff Bio-Foods, a whey packaging company. He began selling packaged whey at his own drug store and to a few other local drug stores. A year later, he gave up his store and decided to focus on the manufacturing and packaging of health foods. 
 
Realizing that health food stores were selling synthetic vitamins rather than supplements made from natural products, Schiff began to study and experiment with whole foods such as brown rice, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ and liver. He found that these foods were naturally rich in vitamins and minerals. Schiff began to develop vitamins and minerals that best utilized and enhanced their natural properties.  
 
One of Schiff’s major breakthroughs was finding that rose hips provided a more concentrated source of vitamin C than orange juice. Schiff was the first to introduce this vitamin C source to America. Schiff also was the leader in producing the first natural source multi-vitamin, Schiff’s V-Complette. 
 
In 1949 Schiff moved his business to Jersey City, N.J. By 1954 business was booming and Schiff built a manufacturing plant and laboratory in South Hackensack, N.J. This building was a model for quality control and further helped to establish the Schiff brand as a trustworthy source of natural ingredients. In 1962 Schiff built a new 30,000-square-foot plant in Moonachie, N.J. By 1969, the Moonachie plant had doubled in size. In 1989 Schiff was acquired by Weider Nutrition International and relocated to Salt Lake City in 1991.

FAQ

What are dietary supplements?  
Dietary supplements are their own product category separate from foods and drugs. Dietary supplements is the correct term, although nutritional supplements, supplements, vitamins and nutraceuticals are words that have been used to describe dietary supplements. Dietary supplements are products containing nutrients that are able to affect the structure or function of the body. Traditionally, dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbs and other dietary substances. 
 
What are vitamins?  
Vitamins are organic substances naturally found in foods. Body processes such as growth, maintenance and tissue repair require 13 essential vitamins. If a certain vitamin is deficient in the diet, a deficiency disease may occur. 
 
Why should I take vitamins or dietary supplements?  
You should take vitamins or dietary supplements for better health. There are millions of scientific articles, books and other publications about the health-promoting effects of nutrients that are present in dietary supplements. Many nutrients are essential, or indispensable, meaning we cannot live without ingesting them. Other nutrients, such as antioxidants, are not essential for life, but do have health-promoting properties. Dietary supplements simply keep people healthier and happier. 
 
What supplements should I take?  
There is no standard answer for what supplements a person should take. Each person must make choices about their health priorities. Since multiple vitamin/mineral products are consumed by almost all supplement users, it is obvious that a product containing essential vitamins and minerals is a good start. Seeking advice from physicians, nutritionists, dietitians and other health care providers is another way to determine if dietary supplements are needed. There are a multitude of books written for the public that explain the benefits of dietary supplements and what supplements are used for specific health concerns.  
 
What are some of the more popular or important dietary supplements?  
Multiple vitamin/mineral supplements are the most popular dietary supplement, and provide broad-based nutritional support with a large number of nutrients. Antioxidants are also popular and important for long-term health. These would include vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, selenium and a host of other nutrients. Calcium and other minerals are important for bone health. Joint products containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates have become extremely popular as they have been shown to support healthy joints if used consistently over time. 
 
What is the difference between fat-soluble and water soluble vitamins?  
Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K are found in the oily parts of food and are stored in the body. The water-soluble vitamins, which are present in the watery parts of food, include vitamin C and the B vitamins (B1, B2, niacin, B6, folic acid, B12, pantothenic acid and biotin). Excess amounts of water-soluble vitamins are eliminated in the body's urine. 
 
What are minerals?  
Minerals are inorganic elements that are essential to the nutrition of all humans. Minerals are needed for a variety of purposes ranging from bone and blood formation to energy production. The 20 essential minerals are either major minerals (calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur) or trace minerals (boron, chromium, cobalt, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, silicon, vanadium and zinc) depending on the amount that is present in the body. If a diet is lacking adequate amounts of one or more mineral, deficiencies may develop. For example, deficiencies of calcium are linked to bone loss, and deficiencies of iron are linked to some anemias. 
 
What is the difference between vitamins in pill form and those found in food? Does the body absorb both equally well?  
Pharmaceutical manufacturers have singled out the most useful and most stable forms of each vitamin over the last 100 years. Sometimes these forms are nature-identical, and sometimes not. Usually, with only a few exceptions, the vitamins in pills are utilized and handled by the body just as efficiently, or more so, than the vitamin forms found in foods. One exception is vitamin E. The natural forms, called d-alpha-tocopherols, are absorbed and utilized twice as well as the synthetic forms, denoted by dl-alpha tocopherol. There might also be some differences in utilization between synthetic and natural beta carotene (vitamin A precursor), vitamin Ds and vitamin Ks. It makes no differences to our cells if the vitamin forms (called vitamers) were synthesized or came from a pill or an apple, as long as the vitamer is nature-identical. Vitamin E is the only vitamin where the natural vs. synthetic source makes a difference, and our bodies favor the natural form. 
 
What are RDAs?  
The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) are a set of nutrient and energy standards developed by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences. Periodically, a group of nutritional experts meet to review the latest science to help develop nutritional allowances for maintenance of good health. RDAs are defined as the levels of intake of essential nutrients judged to be adequate to meet the known nutrient needs of healthy persons. However, RDAs are not designed to determine optimal intake, and they do not consider the health benefits of non-essential nutrients. 
 
I have heard that the dietary supplement industry is unregulated. Why are there not some controls and assurances of public safety?  
Dietary supplements are most definitely regulated, and any reports that the industry is unregulated are untrue. The Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act prohibits misbranding and adulterations of food, drugs, and dietary supplements. DSHEA provides procedures for making claims about dietary supplements and how they affect the structure and function of the body. Further, the FDA reviews all statements made in labeling. Dietary supplements are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. As with any product, Schiff recommends that users read and follow all directions. 
 
What is the DSHEA?  
DSHEA is the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act, passed into law in 1994. The DSHEA amended (changed) the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to define and regulate dietary supplements as their own category of foods. DSHEA was passed by Congress because of overwhelming grass roots support from citizens who wanted to benefit from the healthy aspects of "vitamin pills." DSHEA defines dietary supplements as vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, extracts, concentrates, metabolites, or a combination thereof. DSHEA defines the legal groundwork that governs the identity, benefits, manufacturing practices, and safety of dietary supplements. 
 
I hear some health care professionals say that dietary supplements are dangerous and are not needed if I eat a good diet. Is this true?  
No to both questions. The FDA has removed or prevented the introduction of dietary supplements that were shown to pose hazards for the public. Dietary supplements have shown a tremendous safety record, as would be expected for health-promoting products. In fact, food is more of a hazard than dietary supplements could ever be. Also, established and reputable dietary brands, such as Schiff, have internal guidelines that prevent questionable or unsafe products from being considered. Warning and Caution statements appear on dietary supplement product labels if there are any contraindications known. Few, if any, Americans routinely eat a “good” diet, as shown repeatedly by U.S. Government surveys. Variable intake of essential nutrients may be good enough to prevent classical nutrient deficiency diseases, but practically every health condition has been linked to inadequate dietary intake of healthy foods. Dietary supplements contain healthy substances derived from foods, and should be thought of as part of a healthy diet. Furthermore, there is now considerable scientific evidence that optimal intake of some nutrients, like vitamin E, is impossible even from a healthy diet. In other words, more is better for some nutrients. Since over half of all Americans take some type of dietary supplements, it is obvious that most Americans believe they need to improve their diets, and dietary supplements are a good way.
