Red Yeast Rice — as effective as ‘statin’ drugs, cheaper, and with fewer side effects

Chinese red yeast, Monascus purpureus, contains a family of substances that inhibit an enzyme responsible for making cholesterol in the body. In clinical studies, extracts of M. purpureus reduce LDL cholesterol levels by about 31% and triglycerides by 34%. In animal studies, a reduction in atherosclerotic plaques has also been shown.

The dried yeast contains a family of compounds (‘monacolins’) that are similar in chemical structure to the expensive ‘statin’ drugs for high cholesterol. It also contains other medically active compounds that contribute to its benefits.

Synonyms: RRY, Red Yeast Rice Extract, RYR
