The exclusive benefits of monascin and ankaflavin

Monascin (MS) is a natural metabolite obtained through fermentation with broad-spectrum effects on cardiovascular health and beneficial effects on hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. Recently, MS has been shown to improve hyperglycemia, inhibit insulin resistance, and reduce oxidative stress.

Ankaflavin (AK) is a naturally occurring metabolite from red yeast rice. AK regulates several transcription factors associated with the prevention of metabolic syndrome and other diseases such as PPARγ, PPARα and Nrf2. It has a beneficial effect on hypercholesterolemia and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, protects against cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis.

Ankascin® is supported by more than 10 years of clinical research that resulted in 120 scientific publications including in-vitro and in-vivo experiments to prove its benefits and safety.
Randomized controlled clinical studies show that Ankascin®:
