Application: Cardio Complex is a dietary supplement for use to supplement the diet in monacolin K and vitamin from group „B”. Monacolin obtained from Monascus purpureus (fermented red rice) helps maintaining proper blood cholesterol levels. The beneficial effects occur after ingestion of 10 mg of monacolin per day for about 8 weeks, thiamine (vitamin B1) helps in the proper functioning of the heart. Vitamin B6 and B12 and folates (folic acid) affect the normal levels of homocysteine in the blood (Fact: too high concentration of homocysteine levels in the blood plasma is associated with cardiovascular disease risk. Vitamins from group „B” support the proper functioning of the nervous system (thiamine, vitamin B12). Vitamin B6 helps in the proper synthesis of cysteine, proper metabolism of protein and glycogen, and supports the production of red blood cells. Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 contribute to the reduction in fatigue and weariness.
Scientific information: During EFSA panel on Food and Drug Administration (FDA) two randomized samples were analysed, which provided a support for the thesis claiming that the products made of the red fermented rice with a daily dose of around 10 mg of monacolin K have an effect on LDL-cholesterol in the blood. Panel demonstrates that, in order to obtain the claimed effect, 10 mg of monacolin K from fermented red rice should be eaten on the daily basis.
