During his raw and formative early years, entrepreneur Elwood Richard started a small chain of health food stores in the Chicago area called Health House. A degreed physical chemist, Elwood’s collegiate research had focused on enhancing physical performance through the use of healthy foods and nutritional supplements. The knowledge he acquired during this time left him a firm believer in the benefits of natural products for health and quality of life, and laid the early foundation for his life-long love of nutrition and health foods.
Today NOW is still owned by the Richard family and has grown to become one of the natural product industry’s most recognizable brands, providing one of the most extensive lines of natural products available. NOW has always remained true to Elwood’s original vision – to meet consumer need for health foods by offering affordable, high quality natural products.
NOW Foods Red Yeast Rice 1200mg is a natural product that has been used by Asian traditional herbalists since approximately 800 A.D. Produced by fermenting red yeast (monascus purpureus) with white rice, red yeast rice is commonly used in cooking applications to enhance the color and flavor of foods.
Peking duck is an example of the coloration and flavor imparted by red yeast rice. NOW® Red Yeast Rice is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, an unwanted by-product of the fermentation process.
