I was skeptical, but it did improve my lipid profile considerably; not much change in HDL, but LDL went down by almost 50 points. Highly recommended.
Working well so far

I can't take prescription meds for my cholesterol. Started to take this along with Omega-3 Marine oil and my numbers are way down. I think my doctor who wasn't to happy about me taking it, was surprised.
use of product

I use this instead of Lipitor. It keeps my cholestrol down so I don't have to take the other.

I've tried 3 different Red Yeast Rice products from local store and Puritan Pride. But this is the only one I buy now. I'm thinking that others were watered down or did not function properly. I take two, twice per day for the past 5 years. My blood pressure is NORMAL and I have zero side effects from this product. Try this one before buying something else!

since I have been taking this, my cholestoral has come down a lot.
Still taking this
Posted by Reviewer2621481 on May 24, 2009
I will continue taking this and go back for my blood test probably a month later. This is my second bottle, so far there hasn't been any side effect and my husband cholesterol had gone down with this in a month although mine still need time to see the effect, so it is very subjective, but this is a good one to get per consumerlab recommendation with its proveable active content
Hoping for good blood test results

I have been on a weight loss plan for about a month and have lost almost 9 pounds. My hope is that the weight loss, along with the Red Yeast Rice, keeps my LDL low while raising my HDL. I do feel better after taking this for about 2 months. We'll see next week at the doctor's but I'm pretty confident of a reduced total cholesterol number.
