f NOW Foods Red Yeast Rice Extract Reviews and Information

Red Yeast Rice Extract

Red Yeast Rice is a unique natural product native to China that’s been used in Asian traditional medical systems since approximately 800 A.D. Produced by fermenting red yeast (Monascus purpureus) with white rice, Red Yeast Rice is commonly used in cooking applications to enhance the color and flavor of foods. Peking Duck is an example of the coloration and flavor imparted by Red Yeast Rice. NOW® Red Yeast Rice Extract is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process.

Great for Cholesterol
by Julie MOORE

I've been taking this for a few years now, and it has lowered my cholesterol significantly. I swear by this product now, and I use so many good products from NOW foods.

Good for lowering cholesterol
by sandy

This is great stuff. Statin drugs are made from a part of Red Yeast Rice, but this is the whole complex thing, not just a part of it. There are no nasty side effects (like the statin drugs have).

You can start off taking 2 caplets twice a day and more if needed.

You shouldn't eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice while taking this product because there's a component in grapefruit that works against the Red Yeast Rice.
