Serpent · Taken for 1 to 6 months January 21, 2018

For High Cholesterol: “Refused to take Statins because of well documented side effects. Decided at request of my cardiologist to try this. Took 2400 mg and at six weeks got lower muscle ache and pulled muscle riding bike. Same ride I do 3 days a week. In addition experienced dizziness when rising from bed. Stopped and in ten days side effects gone. Had taken due to 127 LDL. Other cholesterol numbers good. Never had cholesterol checked . I would try but maybe lower doses . Be careful and watch for symptoms. Stop if occur and see your doctor”

For High Cholesterol: “Been taking Red Yeast Rice for 6 months now. It lowered my cholesterol from 269 to 109. Take 2400 mg daily (2 1200 doses) half after breakfast and half after dinner. Crestor was what I started with, couldn't take after 20 days. Too many side effects. Red Yeast Rice also helped my stomach problems (always indigested). Recommend you talk to your doctor and give it a try.”

For High Cholesterol: “Red Yeast Rice has been used for thousands of years in China with great success. Statin Drugs can cause so many side effects including stopping the liver manufacturing of CoQ10 which is necessary for a healthy heart.”

For High Cholesterol: “It lowered my cholesterol to a normal range. Only side effect was gas. Reduced the dose and gas went away. Recommend this product as an alternative to Zocor or Zetia.”
