Happy Valentine’s Day, the perfect time to think about your HEART!

February 14th, 2010

It’s Valentine’s Day and rather than focusing on cards, chocolates and flowers, it may benefit you to take just a few moments to focus on the health of your heart, not the one on your sleeve, but the one beating in your chest.

Are you doing everything possible to insure proper health and longevity for your Ultimate Muscle of Love?

High cholesterol is commonly considered to be a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. New research is uncovering how natural products may play a positive role in reducing your risks.

Red Yeast Rice:
Red Yeast Rice has been a staple of traditional Chinese herbal culture for more than a thousand years. It is derived from a fungus that naturally grows on rice. A number of substances and natural alkaloids within the fermented version of red yeast rice have been found to slow the production of cholesterol in the liver.*

Fermented red yeast rice is actually the parent natural compound of a few synthetic pharmaceutical cholesterol drugs. Published scientific studies have proven natural red yeast rice can effectively lower cholesterol.  Much to the chagrin of the pharmaceutical industry, the latest conventional wisdom reflects the fact that red yeast rice is finally being accepted as perhaps being better for certain patients. Philadelphia cardiologists David Becker, M.D., and Ram Gordon, M.D., published the findings of their most recent study, “Red Yeast Rice for Dyslipidemia in Statin-Intolerant Patients,” in the June 16, 2009 issue of Annals of Internal Medicine.

Organostat 023 is a powerful synergistic cardio combination of Certified Organic Red Yeast Rice, Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E. *

The Role of Phytosterols in reducing Cholesterol:

Plant sterols, or “phytosterols,” are cholesterol-like compounds found mostly in vegetable oils, nuts and legumes.

Phytosterols have the same function as cholesterol in the body. Cholesterol is a necessary component of a cell membrane. However, when cholesterol levels are high it is associated with heart diseases. Diets rich in phytosterols are known to reduce cholesterol levels. For example, in one study it was found that subjects fed wheat germ containing high phytosterols had 42% lower cholesterol in their blood as compared to those who were fed phytosterol-free wheat germ.*

The table below shows a few examples of food sources with the highest Total Sterol Content. Generally, oils have the highest sterol (plant based-cholesterol) level, vegetables and fruits have lower sterol content.

Food Source Total Sterol Content (mg/100g)
Rice Bran 1055
Corn 952
Wheat Germ 553
Flax Seed 338

Rice Bran tops the list for healthy plant sterols with 1055mg per 100g!
