I have been trying to get my cholesterol down below 200 for the past 10 years. I am not able to use statin drugs because of the side effects that they gave me. I tried more than 10 different statin drugs and they all had negative effects on me. Some gave me very bad muscle pain, some would put my arms to sleep and some would put my leg to sleep, and one made my liver count go up. A friend of mine who also uses your Red Yeast Rice, Cholestene, told me how it had lowered her cholesterol. I did not believe it because I had read about the FDA in 2000 making the suppliers of Red Yeast Rice take the Lovostatin out of the product, before it could be sold in the USA. She assured me that it had lowered her cholesterol anyway, so I said I would give it a try. I started using your RYR on May 15th. I went to the doctor on July 21st for my usual cholesterol check and they called me the next day to tell me that my total Cholesterol had gone from 262 on my last visit, to 179 on this visit. I was just blown away. I have been taking three cholestene twice a day. I will now start taking two capsules two times a day, now that it has gone below 200. I just wanted to thank you for your great product and to order another 3 months supply, Yours truly, Larry

This made me a little dizzy but only tried it for one or two days. Will try with less dosage.

When the brand I had been using was no longer available, I used Consumer Lab Reports to help me decide which new brand of red yeast rice I would purchase. Cholestene seemed like a good choice for me. Using Slo Niacin and red yeast rice (and a sensible diet and moderate exercise)has been enough to keep my cholestrol at acceptable levels. It will be several more weeks before blood tests reveal whether there has been any change, so I'm only giving Cholestene and 3-star rating; in other words, so far so good. I would, however, give iHerb 5 stars. This is the first time I have purchased a product from them and I am 100% satisfied.

I don't know if there was a formula change but I have purchased this product from other sources and the capsules have been dark red. The ones I purchased from iherb (same brand) are much lighter in color almost pink. I will see if they have the same effect on my cholesterol.

Whether it works or not I will only know after my next blood test. I’m taking a neutral position for now

Taking this for a number of years. Helped to lower my cholestrol. I didn't want a prescription drug from Doctor. I have recommended this to a lot of people and they're also very satisfied with their results.

Very happy with this product. My friend and I have bought this item for several years and decided to find it on the internet. iHerb is much cheaper as we were paying appro. $22.00 per bottle. So we are very happy and much richer, ha!!

I guess they keep pricing competitive by slow delivery time. Yes, you can pay for faster one, but still slower than other services.

I started taking Red Yeast Rice about 3 weeks ago so I don't really know how well it's working. When I have a cholestoral test, then it will be easier to respond to your rating request.
