NOW Red Yeast Rice delivers the natural nutrient profile found in Genuine Whole Foods

Red Yeast Rice is a unique natural product that's been used in Asian traditional medical systems 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 Extract is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablet 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with food. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW CoQ10, Sytrinol and Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract).

Other Ingredients

Calcium carbonate, maltodextrin, silica, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and vegetable coating.

Contains no sugar, salt, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg,shellfish or preservatives.

Warnings

Helped drop my cholesterol 63 pts.

Posted by Reviewer2238935 on Jul 19, 2008

While taking 600mg. twice/day along with 20 mg. policosanol (I used Source Naturals) and 100 CoQ10 (Natural Factors brand) my total cholesterol took its biggest drop ever. It took between 3-6 mos., and my HDL and LDL levels also improved greatly, all without exercise or diet change--not that I recommend skipping those. But a nurse told me about her family history of high cholesterol and her own dramatic drop in cholesterol after taking these 3 supplements, so I decided to give it a try. My doctor was very happy, esp. with my HDL! And I was glad to be able to avoid any drug treatment. (BTW, I switched from the 60mg to these 120mg tabs once/day after about 6 mos.)

Red yeast rice

Posted by Reviewer1439724 on Nov 30, 2008

This is a great product for controlling cholesterol. Ii is also good for digestion. It may also help in reducing C reactive protein which is responsible in part, for causing heart disease.

Red Yeast Rice

Taken with CoQ10 is working fine and is better than using statins.

Great for lowering cholesterol

Posted by Reviewer1584346 on Mar 10, 2009

I had refused to use a statin because of the side effects, so my doctor asked me to try Red Yeast Rice. My total cholesterol dropped 40 points within 6 mos. It also improved my hdl and ldl.

Red Yeast Rice

My doctor prescribed this product for me about 5 years ago to bring down my cholesterol. It has worked quite well - I'm still NOT on Lipitor!!!
