Choleast™
Product Information
Natural management of healthy cholesterol levels should involve dietary and lifestyle modifications, including a low-saturated fat, low-carbohydrate diet, and aerobic exercise. As additional supplementation, several nutrients and botanicals can be used to help maintain lipid metabolism and support healthy cholesterol levels.*

The cholesterol fraction that appears to be of most concern is LDL cholesterol, and, in particular, oxidized LDL. Antioxidant supplementation can be beneficial for decreasing the oxidation of LDL.*

Choleast contains Monascus purpureus, a red-pigmented yeast grown on rice. Numerous studies in China and the United States have demonstrated that red yeast rice preparations are helpful in maintaining blood cholesterol levels already in the normal range.* This is important, as maintaining optimal cholesterol levels has been shown to be one component of maintaining cardiovascular health.*

In addition to naturally occurring substances called monacolins, red yeast rice contains the phytosterols beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol, as well as isoflavones and trace minerals, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular health.*

The same enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis are also involved in the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, to help maintain normal levels of CoQ10, Choleast contains 15 mg CoQ10 per capsule.* Red Yeast Rice, Monacolins, and Citrinin Content Red yeast rice is obtained by a specific process that ferments rice. One of the natural by-products of the rice fermentation process is citrinin, although usually the more sophisticated the fermentation process, the lower the amount of citrinin that is produced as a by-product. Citrinin is a mycotoxin. Because mycotoxins can cause inflammation and other injurious effects in the body, our practitioner-customers and their patients want the assurance that Thorne Research's red yeast rice product – Choleast™ – contains only minimal amounts of citrinin.

In a study published in October 2010 in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 12 red yeast rice products were analyzed for the content of monacolins and citrinin. The results of the analyses demonstrated a high variability of the content of both these substances.

Although Thorne Research's Choleast was not included in the above-noted study, we can confirm to our health-care practitioner customers that we take the utmost care to make certain we are offering the highest quality and purity red yeast rice formula. There are no government standards or guidelines for citrinin content in red yeast rice; however, the generally recognized standard in the industry is less than 1 part per million, and Thorne Research's Choleast regularly tests at less than 0.05 parts per million, which is less than 1/20th of that standard.

In addition, Choleast contains consistent amounts of the naturally-occurring monacolins found in red yeast rice, without standardization or fortification. We know this because we measure all of our raw materials in order to be in compliance with our strict GMP obligations to determine each ingredient's identity, purity, strength, and composition.

At Thorne Research we are committed to the quality of the formulas we offer to you and your patients. Thank you for your continued support.

Q-Best 100™
Product Information
Q-Best 100 is a proprietary, crystal-free preparation of coenzyme Q10 (aka ubiquinone) that consistently has demonstrated superior absorption over other forms of CoQ10, including dry powder, oil-based softgels, lipsosomes, micelles, and nanoparticle preparations.

All supplemental CoQ10 originates in a crystal (dry powder) form. However, this crystal form alone is not well absorbed because the crystals do not fully dissolve in the intestines and the body cannot absorb lipid crystals. When crystals are dissolved in a lipid-based delivery system (ie, oil-based softgels, liposomes, micelles, and nanoparticles), absorption is improved. However, there is still partial crystallization found in these preparations.

Q-Best provides CoQ10 in a fully dissolved, crystal-free, lipid-based form, allowing greater absorption by the intestinal mucosa. This is accomplished by a proprietary, tri-lipid delivery system. One lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved at 10 above body temperature; the second lipid keeps the CoQ10 crystals fully dissolved below body temperature; and the third lipid acts as a carrier molecule to facilitate absorption.

Clinical trials demonstrate superior absorption over dried powder preparations. In addition, a plasma CoQ10 bioavailability study observed absorption of Q-Best to be vastly greater than other forms of CoQ10, including oils suspension, nanoparticle, and liposomal preparations. This is why we believe Q-Best is the best CoQ10 formula available today.

Coenzyme Q10 functions as an intracellular antioxidant.* Due to its involvement in energy production within the cell, CoQ10 affects the function of all cells in the body, making it essential for the health of tissues and organs.* CoQ10 particularly benefits the most metabolically active cells: heart, immune system, gingiva, and gastric mucosa.* An adequate supply of intracellular CoQ10 is vital to the health of heart muscle.* CoQ10 supports normal heart rhythm and can help maintain already normal blood pressure.*

Super EPA Pro
Product Information
Studies demonstrate that the higher the concentration of EPA in a capsule, the more effective it is in maintaining healthy triglyceride levels.* Quite simply, it's what is NOT in the capsule that is key. For example, a typical 1,000 mg fish oil capsule might have 300-500 mg of omega-3s and 500-700 mg of other saturated and unsaturated fats per capsule – fats that can interfere with the efficacy of the omega-3s.

Super EPA Pro is manufactured using Supercritical Fluid Technology, which utilizes low temperatures and standardized pressures. The result is a pure, highly-concentrated product containing 650 mg EPA and 100 mg DHA per softgel. The low temperatures used in the extraction process assure maintenance of molecular integrity. During the processing the product is manufactured under a nitrogen blanket to ensure the supercritical oil stays fresh throughout the process, preventing oxidation of the oils.

Super EPA Pro contains omega-3 oils from small, non-accumulating fish, harvested from pristine Peruvian waters. The fish oil is from a sustainable source, which is monitored closely by sonar buoys to determine how many fish are in a particular area in order to prevent depletion of the population. The result is the most sustainable source of wild fish in the marketplace.
