    Product Specification:

    Red yeast rice health benefits are found in its compounds known as monacolins, known to inhibit cholesterol synthesis. One of these compounds, monocolin K, is known to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that triggers cholesterol production.

    Because of these naturally occurring statins, red yeast rice is sold as an over the counter cholesterol control supplement. Human studies, which began in the 1970's, have confirmed the benefits of red yeast rice in lowering cholesterol.

    A study at the UCLA School of Medicine of 83 people with high cholesterol showed a significant reduction in their total cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels after twelve weeks. Study participants were given 2.4 grams of red yeast rice daily and ate a diet with no more than 30% fat intake.
