Details

Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice by Solaray is manufactured by the fermentation of a strain of yeast, Monascus Purpureus, on rice.

TV Doctor Customers: This supplement supplies 600mg per capsule. TV Doctor recommended this product on two different shows. For helping with cholesterol, take 1200mg twice per day. He has also recommended taking as low as 600mg twice per day. This all-natural product is one that Dr. Weil takes and is good for genetically lowering LDL. This bottle will last you 25-45 days.

Red yeast rice contains a compound called lovastatin as well as a number of related compounds in the class called statins. Statins are, in fact, the basis for several pharmaceutical drugs. Some examples, in addition to lovastatin, are simvastatin, mevastatin, pravastatin, atorvastatin, and fluvastatin. Statins lower blood cholesterol by inhibiting an important enzyme that is required for the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver. The enzyme is hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase. That's quite a mouthful, so this protein (all enzymes are proteins) usually goes by the simpler name HMG-CoA reductase. If your cholesterol level is too high, inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase is a good thing to do.

Many studies have demonstrated, in fact, that this is the most effective way (aside from diet and exercise) to regulate total blood cholesterol levels. Lower cholesterol levels generally mean a decreased risk of atherosclerosis, and therefore of heart attack, so statins are very important drugs indeed. But the news about statins - and, therefore, about red yeast rice - gets even better. Recent research indicates that statin therapy can also reduce the level of another protein, called C-reactive protein, with consequences that may lower the risk of several additional types of coronary events.
