Product Description

Size: 120

Red Yeast Rice is a unique natural product that's been used in Asian traditional medical systems since approximately 800 A.D.  It is produced by the fermentation of red yeast (  Monascus purpureus) with white rice.  NOW® Red Yeast Rice is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process.  This product is further enhanced with the addition of CoQ10 to support healthy cardiovascular and immune system function, Milk Thistle Extract to support healthy liver function, and Alpha Lipoic Acid to provide antioxidant support.*

My doctor had been pushing lipitor and other cholestorol products for years which I refused because of the side effects. I told him I would try red rice yeast and if it didn't work I would considered his recommendations. I decided to try Now red rice yeast because of the reviews. I had an appointment to go back in six months for blood tests which I did. My doctor was floored by the results and wanted to know what I was using because it had outdone anything he had prescribed. I'm happy because I have not experienced any side effects and he's happy because I'm controlling my cholestorol. I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND Now Red Rice Yeast!!!! And, as always, I would like to thanks Amazon customers for their helpful reviews.

I started taking this in early march in an attempt to lower my cholesterol. My numbers at this time were as follows:

Total: 230
Triglycerides: 58
HDL: 55
VDL: 12
LDL: 163
Ratio: 3.0

On April 10th I had my retest and the results are as follows:

Total: 198
Triglycerides: 37
HDL: 66
VLDL: 7
LDL: 125
Ratio: 1.9

As you can see in this brief period my bad cholesterol has been significantly reduced and I have had no side affects that I know of. My rise in HDL cholesterol could be contributed to the addition of ground chia seeds, pure cocoa powder and flax seed oil to my protein shakes, as well as taking Cod Liver Oil supplements, but either way this product had a huge part in helping my cholesterol levels! Other than this, my diet has been exactly the same, and I have always been an active person, running and lifting weights 3-4 times a week. I'll continue to take and monitor from now on!! I have been taking 2/day, one after breakfast/lunch and one after dinner.

**UPDATE**

July 9th Results

Total: 193
Triglycerides: 56
HDL: 59
VLDL: 11
LDL: 123
Ratio: 2.1

It seems as though my levels are now remaining constant, with my LDL still a little high. I'll continue to monitor and update as necessary.

My cholesterol had been rising for years and not from my diet. Finally the doctor said it was time to bring it down as my numbers had gone from slightly elevated to high. I tried a statin that she prescribed and it made me vomit every time I took it. I told her I was going to try this and I was told it wouldn't work. I took 2 capsules a day for 3 months and when I was tested again, my numbers were normal!! The doctor said it must be the change in diet and exercise and I told her the only thing I changed was the statin I used. She still doesn't think it's the red yeast rice but I'm down to 1 capsule a day and my numbers are perfect and have been for over a year!

I had an annual cholesterol test, and it was high as it always is. The doctor warned me again that the meds I take will harm my liver, and liver test also was elevated. I had to find a way to lower the levels. I started taking both Chitosan and Red Yeast Rice. After 3 months, I had another blood test done. After I have been taking this combination for just 3 months, my cholesterol had dropped 40 points. I have had only one test since starting the supplements, so can not say for sure if it was a fluke, or if it truly does reduce the cholesterol level. I do believe it is helping. This was my second batch of supplements, and until I find that my blood test proves differently, I will continue to take this combination. Your results may differ from mine.

I started my father on this about 4 months ago pairing it with 2 good doses of Konsyl a day. History of high cholesterol along with high blood pressure. Several cholesterol meds and a few different blood pressure meds all made him feel useless. Stuff was zapping the life out of him.

I received a call the other day and he was telling me he hadn't felt this good in 5 years. He had also got his brother to start the same thing and his cholesterol had dropped by 100. I like this version because it is paired with the Coq10 and its about the best deal you can get. I just order my parents a two month supply at a time and have it shipped to them.

Back in February I had my physical and shortly after that I got a call to come back in to discuss my blood test results. Nuts! My cholesterol has been rising for the last 2 years, from 205 total to 299 as of this last check. My doc said this is my body doing it and not my lifestyle, now since my 205 count 2 years ago I have stopped drinking and eating at the quick places in hopes of lowering the numbers and not take any meds. Well after the 299 in Feb I thought "screw it" bacon and Lipitor here I come. Of course my doctor is selling me these drugs like I'm buying a new car ( him a car). My wife and I decided to really put some effort into changing things one last time. I had heard about Red Rice Yeast with CQ-10 and found on the internet so many mixed things about all of it I really didn't know what to do. I ordered a bottle of this stuff and it said to take a hand full of these pills before each meal which seemed a little much ( 3-4 pills each meal is allot) so I started with taking 1 pill before dinnertime to see if I felt anything because it is a statin I'm told. Along with this I think the biggest change is my eating habits, red meat 2 times a week, usually a big ole steak and fish 3 times a week and chicken till I puke. Lunch is uneventful with lots of veg, fruits and nuts. I find myself eating more frequently and sometimes not content the way I would after a big burger. No more processed foods which has been a challenge and it does take a little more time and planning for meals, however I received a call from my doctor today. I had another recheck last week and he assured me that nothing I could do would lower my numbers enough to prevent medical intervention and I ought to just forgo the test and take Lipitor. As much as I pay for insurance I said " Do the test".Read more ›
