Red Yeast Rice is a unique natural product traditionally used in Asian culture.
Other Ingredients: Plant-derived capsule, magnesium stearate.
Background: Red yeast rice is made by culturing rice with various strains of the yeast Monascus purpureus. Some preparations of red yeast rice are used in food products in Chinese cuisine, including Peking duck. Others have been sold as dietary supplements to lower blood levels of cholesterol and related lipids. Some red yeast rice products contain substances called monacolins, which are produced by the yeast. Monacolin K is chemically identical to the active ingredient in the cholesterol-lowering drug lovastatin, which is one of the drugs in the category known as statins. These drugs lower blood cholesterol levels by reducing the production of cholesterol by the liver (Source: NCCIH).
Warnings: Do not take red yeast rice in addition to prescription statin drugs. Red yeast rice supplements should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding (Source: NCCIH).
