Huge gas producer
Posted by Reviewer1479901 on May 31, 2008
I am another person who found this particular product to be unusable due to truly excessive gas production, at even 1 capsule per day.
Good product. Does the job!

Excellent Product - Best Red Yeast Rice
Posted by Reviewer2688312 on Jan 05, 2009
Taking 2 capsules/daily (one before breakfast and one before supper), this product lowered my overall cholesterol 45 points while increasing my good cholesterol (HDL) within six weeks with no dietary changes made by me. I've increased my dosage to 3 capsules/daily and will have my cholesterol checked again in a month (3 months from my last cholesterol test). My doctor anticipates my cholesterol will be even lower than before. Excellent product!

I lowered my cholesterol from 220 to 156 is 2 months. My doctor said that Red Yeast Rice acts as a crude statin. I take this with Fish Oil. My HDL's also lowered but are still fairly high. I'll continue to take this product.
cholesterol down 40%
Posted by Reviewer3346279 on Apr 14, 2010
My total cholesterol has slowly gone up over many years. I have lost weight and changed my diet. My Dr asked me to take red yeast rice, because there is a natural statin in the yeast. After 3 months, my total cholesterol went down 40%. The LDL, bad cholesterol went down 47%. The HDL good cholesterol also went down but only 15% and it is in the good range. I would say that this works as good or better than a prescription statin. Since this costs me $5.70 a month, it is about the same as a generic statin.
No need for prescription pills

This is the second batch of Red Rice Yeast purchased from IHerb made by Doctors Best. In the first Order one of the bottles contained app. 8 broken capsules. Unpleasant but not a drama. Whether the damage occurred during transit or just careless by the QC dept. at Doctor's Best is impossible to tell. The second order is fine. As to the efficacy of the Red Yeast; all I can say is it seems to reduce LDL and HDL to acceptable levels with out the side effects associated with the statens.
