Red Yeast Rice
“Red Yeast Rice - The Natural Statin!" -Dr. B
Red yeast rice is an ancient Chinese secret dating back to the Tang Dynasty. Lately, it's been making a big splash in America. You see, red yeast rice is not just a tasty side dish to go with your moo goo gai pan; this rice is extra nice - it's a supplement that contains a blend of cholesterol-lowering statins, including lovastatin, the drug known as Mevacor. If you have problems with cholesterol and other blood lipids, red yeast rice may be a supplement you should consider.
Make sure you take a CoQ10 supplement with your red yeast rice, as statins can deplete your CoQ10 levels.
