    I have donated apheresis at the blood centers for over 15 years. They always do a cholesterol screening and give those results. At 212, they were concerned. Safe levels are 200 or less. One month of taking red yeast rice capsules, my Cholesterol dropped to 181. With regular use it has stayed below 200 for a year without any change of diet.

    I found red yeast rice worked to reduce bad cholesterol, however I did have side effects from it. I had bad muscle pains from it so I reduced how much and I still had pains. I was told Co-Q10 would help with the pains but it didn't really.

    When I was in my early 50-ties, I had elevated cholesterol. I'm healthy otherwise and didn't go for check-ups until my mid 70-ties. After one year of trying a fat reduced diet the cholesterol level did not go down. I decided to try Red Yeast Rice for One Year. My cholesterol & triglycerides became normal. I'm 80 now and Ch./Tr. remained normal.

    My cholesterol lowered from 267 to 190 in 6 months. Lowest it has been for years! I was not able to tolerate Lipitor and diet alone was not able to get me below 230.
