The daily dose of Vitaking Cholenat tablet (2 tablets) contains 600 mg of artichoke extract.
Fermented red rice extract
Red rice has been consumed in the Far East for centuries, but is not only used as a food in Japan, China, but is also popular in folk medicine.
But it is not the rice itself that is interesting, but the yeast that parasites on the red rice.
The color is due to the yeast Monascus purpureus. So the rice is originally fermented by a white yeast called Monascus purpureus and becomes red. Red rice has long been popular in the Far East and China and has been included in ancient Chinese pharmacies.
The daily dose of the product contains 200 mg of fermented red rice extract.
Flavonoids – or bioflavonoids – are behind the characteristic taste and aroma of vegetables and fruits. But flavonoids mean much more than the color and flavor of fruits.
Cholenat contains 160 mg of citrus flavonoid daily, 60% (96 mg) of hesperidine (the most abundant flavonoid in citrus).
Recommended daily intake: 1 tablet before lunch and 1 tablet before dinner with plenty of liquid.
Pregnant women, nursing mothers and those under 18 should not consume. Red rice yeast should not be consumed with statins, antimicrobials, cyclosporin and grapefruit juice. In case of hypertension and liver disease, the consumption of red yeast should be avoided. Because of its artichoke content, it is not recommended for individuals with gallstones and those who are prone to gallstones.
