What does Anticholesteran contain and how does it work?

The product contains a standardized extract of red rice fermented (in one tablet there are 250 mg of extract, including 10 mg of monacolin K).

There is a risk of cardiovascular disease associated with increased blood lipid levels, in particular with an increased concentration of the cholesterol fraction present in a form associated with low density lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol). The monacolin K contained in the preparation is phytostatin (a statin of vegetable origin). The action of monacolin K, like other statins, is based on inhibition of the activity of the key enzyme involved in the cholesterol synthesis process (this enzyme is reductase of 3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A, in short HMG-CoA reductase). Inhibition of this enzyme in liver cells limits the synthesis of cholesterol and stimulates liver cells to increase the uptake of LDL cholesterol molecules from the blood. This action leads to a reduction in LDL cholesterol in the blood.
