Patented Extraction Process Ensures the Removal of Toxic Citrinin and Monacolin K Compound
CALGARY, ALBERTA, May 8, 2019 – Respected Canadian supplement formulator, Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR), continues to drive conversation around the importance of transparency and safety with their game-changing Red Yeast Rice supplement. Recognizing the potential danger of Citrinin, a toxic by-product of traditional fermentation processes, and Monacolin K, a compound found in most comparable products on the market, AOR secured the Canadian rights to the patented extraction process that allowed them to ensure the safety and authenticity of their Red Yeast Rice with Ankacin 568-R. By offering the world’s first Red Yeast Rice product formulated without Monacolin K or Citrinin, AOR has been able to ensure their product contains a standardized amount of biologically active pigments Monascin and Ankaflavin, which support healthy cholesterol levels without the potential side effects of traditional statin products.
With a rich history of application in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Red Yeast Rice has been utilized for thousands of years to assist in the promotion of positive cardiovascular function. Produced by fermenting red rice with Monascus Purpureus yeast, the process creates a compound that has been suggested to support the inhibition of cholesterol in the liver.
“We are thrilled to offer consumers access to a Red Yeast Rice supplement they can take confidently, knowing it’s free from Monacolin K and Citrinin,” said Dr. Traj Nibber, CEO and founder of AOR. “This particular form of Red Yeast Rice is patented with five human clinical studies and is standardized for active molecules that are not statins and therefore not associated with any of the regulatory restrictions or side effects. For many adults in North America, a poor diet, lack of exercise, or their family history may all have a negative impact on their cholesterol levels, so as industry leaders we thought it was our duty to provide a safer alternative to other comparable options.”
Available now, AOR’s Red Yeast Rice with Ankacin 568-R can be purchased through the AOR Website, or at select retail locations for $54.45CAD. For more information on AOR, please visit http://www.aor.ca
