Product Description

Red yeast rice is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been purported to lower cholesterol.*

Red yeast rice naturally contains several ingredients that may help control cholesterol levels. These include a number of monacolins, most importantly monacolin K. It also contains sterols, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids, or "healthy fats."

Since research into red yeast rice is still in its early stages, experts still aren't sure of what the ideal dose should be. The amounts taken in some studies have varied from 1.2 to 2.4 grams per day. In China and other countries, estimates of average daily consumption are much higher.

Suggested recommendation is to be taken in servings of 600mg one or two times per day. This is a very specific amount that should only be measured with a digital milligram scale, not measuring spoons. This is because Red Yeast Rice Extract has been known to compete with Coenzyme Q10, an essential enzyme that is necessary for many life-sustaining processes.

This has a bit of a fruity scent to it and dissolves more easily in hot water. This product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to preserve its potency.

Not only is it sometimes used in food as a flavoring and coloring agent, but it is even able to promote good circulation and a healthy heart in medicine.

You should not take it if you have kidney disease, liver disease, are pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, anyone taking one of the following medicines should not use red yeast rice:  Statins to control cholesterol, drugs to suppress the immune system, antifungal drugs, antibiotics erythromycin and clarithromycin, Serzone an antidepressant, and protease inhibitors

Whatever the state of your health, always talk to your doctor before you start using red yeast rice or any other supplement.
