Red Rice Yeast

Studies say that red rice yeast may lower your cholesterol. Red rice yeast is a dietary supplement that is sold in many nutrition and grocery stores that may be a useful addition to ones regimen of controlling high cholesterol. Red rice yeast was traditionally used in Chinese medicine and is derived from a fungus that grows on red rice. This contains compounds that naturally inhibit the formation of cholesterol. People who have finished a 12 week cycle of red rice yeast supplements have shown a greater reduction in their LDL than others who have taken a placebo pill. This study; however, was small and the changes in cholesterol did not reach the amount achieved with high levels of traditional Cholesterol medication. Although a decrease in cholesterol has been shown with a regimen of red rice yeast, one should always consult their doctor before starting a new supplement.
