did not work

I chose these because of the review on consumer lab. I have used red rice yeast (another brand)before for my cholesterol, and it worked beautifully--just like a presecribed statin. This time, despite 2 tablets twice a day, there has been no change in my cholesterol levels after over 3 months of taking these--I still have an LDL of 173 and a total cholesterol of 276. A total waste of time and money.

We were glad to find the extract available. My husband has just begun to use this formula so we cannot rate it at this time. We like the idea of pharmaceutical grade on this product.

I have been taking red yeast rice for a couple years and it has help to reduce my total cholestrol significantly. I alternate using a brand sold by my naturopath and 21 century and have seen no drop in effectiveness with this substitution. The only down side is that 21 st century does not contain CoQ10 which is depleted by any type of statin type med, so I take an additonal co Q10 supplement.

Too new to give a report. Recommended by doctor. I am concerned about statines in this supplement and may look at other options.
So far so good.

I have tried different brands and decided to try this one since it was economical. Thus far, seems to be ok. Check up with Doc for heart indicates BP is very good. Visit in May brought a BP of 128/ 76. Nice! High BP runs in my family and I did not wish to take RX and Doc worked me. Let's hope this one keeps me at the good mark. Will find out next year at annual review. Thanks!
Did not helped

Unfortunately this did not helped me. I checked my cholesterol level before start to use it and after using whole bottle. And after it was the same level than before.
