My doctor recommend that I take a statin drug to maintain my in-range cholesterol, I asked for a natural substitute and he recommended red yeast rice. I've been taking this for more than a year, (one tablet/day in the morning after breakfast) and my cholesterol #'s remain in the normal range.

The product was delivered on schedule and seems to fulfill its claims. It has already lowered my cholesterol 40 points.

Needed the higher dosage of Red Omega and accidentally ordered the Red Yeast Rice! Didn't know that NOW doesn't have the Red Omega in 1200 mg.

The 12000mg tablet form is superior to the hard capsule presentation which has a tendency to fracture when sent by mail. But I believe that 600mg twice a day is probable better than 1200mg once. Perhaps a 600mg tablet form is required or at least a score on the 1200mg formulation making it easier to break in two?

A very effective, safe alternative to statins.

Just have started taking the Red Yeast Rice. My doctor said that it would help with my cholesterol. My cholesterol has always been great, but at my last visit to the doctor it had started to rise somewhat. The doctor told me to try this and I am anxious to see if the results are as good as she claims. The pills are quite large and sometimes difficult to swallow.

too early to know

I have not used the product long enough to know that I have benefited by lowering my LDL cholesterol. Check with me again after July 2009. The person who referred me to the Red Yeast Rice tablets did notice a big drop in her bad cholesterol level.
