    My cholesterol levels were in the mid 300s and I had a TIA. But since moderating my animal fats slightly, and taking Red Yeast Rice, my flushing, high BP and tiredness have abated to an extent. But this was not the magic pill to solve the problem. It helped. But not without some effort by my own actions.

    I've been taking red yeast rice for years and it has lowered my cholesterol from 243 to 195. I have no muscle pains because I take ryr with CoQ10. I have read other reviews and it seems that the ones having trouble are not taking ryr with the CoQ10. you can get them in the same pill.

    Comment:
    Red Yeast Rice works...I started Red Yeast Rice 6-7 years ago to lower my borderline Cholesterol. It worked and lowered my cholesterol for 1-2 years.
