    I have been taking Red Yeast Rice since Oct. 2009, (600mg x 2/day) within 6 months my cholesterol went from 267 to 241. My doc was pleased. The next 6 months it only dropped another 4 pts. But, I'm still taking it. I have developed IBS, but I'm not sure the RYR was the contributor to that.

    Lowered My overall cholesterol over 70 points in just 12 weeks!

I am now exploring my other options in the natural world!
