Nuvilex Cites Study that Suggests Red Yeast Rice, an Active Ingredient in Cinnechol, Can Help to Improve Cardiovascular Health
Date:6/24/2009

Study Published in Annals of Internal Medicine

CHERRY HILL, N.J., June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nuvilex, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NVLX), an emerging healthcare consumer products company, announced today that red yeast rice, an ingredient contained in Cinnechol, one of the Company's primary supplement products, has been recently proven to decrease levels of low-density lipoprotein, or LDL cholesterol, in dyslipidemic patients. LDL cholesterol is known more informally as "bad" cholesterol. Red yeast rice, which has been used in Ayurvedic medicine and China as a dietary supplement for centuries, contains a compound (monacolin K) that is identical in chemical composition to lovastatin, a commonly prescribed cholesterol-lowering drug.

A recent study titled "Red Yeast Rice for Dyslipidemia in Statin-Intolerant Patients: A Randomized Trial," led by cardiologists Dr. David Becker and Dr. Ram Gordon and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, showed that a diet and exercise regimen that included red yeast rice reduced LDL cholesterol by an average of 27.3%, compared to 5.7% for the control group. Moreover, the study showed that red yeast rice can decrease LDL cholesterol without increasing pain levels.

"Many synthetic statins have been derived from red yeast rice and other naturally occurring phytochemicals," stated Robert Bowker, co-inventor of Cinnechol and President of Knock-Out Technologies, Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuvilex. "Red yeast rice, among others, is a bona fide naturally occurring statin. Cinnechol--along with diet and exercise--can help individuals maintain normal cholesterol levels and promote cardiovascular health."

Cinnechol, which contains red yeast rice extract as well as a blend of other ingredients known to improve cardiovascular function (including niacin and guggul gum extract), may provide a natural alternative for those who have high choleste
