Red Yeast Rice effective components

1. Monacolin K Congeners

11 types of Monacolin K congeners were detected at Red Yeast Rice, such as Monacolin L. Monacolin M, Monacolin X etc.

The Monacolins are integrated, But their syntheses are worlds apart. Compared with Monaclin K,

The other Monacolins are relatively low in effectiveness of HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors.
