Comment:
Red Yeast Rice supplements dropped my total cholesterol from 176 to 100 in 30 days. I will soon take another blood test to see if levels have stablized. Instead of taking 2 tablets, I am taking one, as I do not want levels to drop to low. I am not taking any other statin drugs.

4 pills , Weider brand from Costco, lowered my cholesterol from 225 to 168. It works. 2 pills lowered my cholesterol to around 185. My MD told me to take it. My second MD became a believer in it. We need to keep it a secret or the FDA and the Drug industry will put a stop to it.

This product didn't help with my HDL's or LDL's. I feel that it is a complete waster of money.

Comment:
My cholesterol was 230 and my physician wanted me to use a statin drug. I opted to try 2 capsules of Jarrow red yeast rice with CoQ10 every day for 3 months. My cholesterol dropped to 180. So easy. I am thrilled!
