Comment:
My Cholesterol was 275 when my sister told me about Red Yeast Rice. I went to Wal Mart and started adding the capsules, 2 a day, to my routine. Over the course of one and one half years my Cholesterol has dropped to 220. It may even ber lower since the last test was 8 months ago. A healthy and natural way to get heart healthy with no side effects.

Comment:
I have taken red yeast rice and fish oil for 3 months and reduced total cholesterol from 291 down to 207, with HDL holding at 70 and LDL reduced from 210 down to 127. I had very slight and short-term muscle pain in upper arm, but that is no longer present. I tried this at my internist's suggestion. All the best to everyone reading this. Take good care.
