      Comments about HPF LLC Cholestene 1200MG - 120 Capsules:

      Cholestene, is one of the best products on the market. I believe that it is one of the first Red Yeast Rice products to come to the USA from Europe. I have used Cholestene for over fourteen years! I used to have very high cholesterol, but since starting on Cholestene, all lipids are in range. I have never taken a drug for my cholesterol, and always make sure to take my Co Q 10 every day. I have recommended this product to many of my friends and each and everyone of them, have had excellent results.

        ConsumerLab.com does independent tests of supplements. All said and done, their assessment of HPF Cholestene was VERY favorable, dramatically above other red yeast rice tested; also the most affordable. It's what I will be taking from now on.

                Doctor recommended red yeast rice (along with Psyllium fiber) as an alternative to prescription meds when my LDL numbers were high. Did online research to come up with this brand as effective -- also gel caps easy to take. In 3 months reduced LDL from 155 to 75.

                  Comments about HPF LLC Cholestene 1200MG - 120 Capsules:

                  I have used cholestene for the last 15 years. I have slightly elevated cholesterol that seems to be hereditary as I follow a proper diet, get plenty of exercise and am not overweight. I did not want to take any of the statins so I tried the red yeast rice. I tried several brands, but for me Cholestene is the most effective. I take 2 capsules in the a.m. and p.m. every day. This seems to work like a very low dose statin. My overall cholesterol used to run between 215-260; with the red yeast rice, it stays below 200, usually from 170-195. The plus is that Cholestene is much cheaper to take than any statin drug and it's a natural remedy. Be sure to always take CoQ10 with red yeast rice. For some people red yeast rice can give the same side effects as a statin--ex. muscle pain--but I haven't experienced any of that.

                    Both my husband and I began taking cholestene to try and lower our cholesterol and it really works! By taking this product daily (3-4 times/day), both of our cholesterol levels dropped from over 200 (220-240) to under 200 (160-170) within 4 to 8 months. The online price is lower than in stores and the stores will match the online price if you ask.

                      Keeps my cholesterol numbers low -- and does it far better than any prescription statin. Statins gave me, no matter what the dosage was, severe side effects - muscle cramps in particular. At one point I could barely get around using Lipitor. After I stopped taking them the pain went away fairly quickly. Substituted Cholestene and my doctor was very pleased with the results - and the've stayed that way for two years now.

                        I have been taking 2 gelcaps every morning and evening with one CoQ10 capsule for probably 10 years now. This is the most effective brand of red yeast rice that I' ve found. I have mild elevated cholesterol which I am able to control with exercise, proper diet, and these supplements. I am not overweight and very active so the doctors think my problem is genetic. There are no side -effects. The product is inexpensive as compared to statins and in my opinion safer.

                          After 15 years of using statins with significant side effects, I changed to Cholestine to lower my cholesterol which had never reached below 240 at its best. Within two months of taking Cholestine, on a schedule of 4 per day, my cholesterol under 200 and has stayed that way for over 7 years. I am very happy with this supplement.

                          I have used this product for many years. It lowered my cholesterol significantly. I tried another brand that was less expensive and my cholesterol rose substantially. My doctor says that if red yeast rice keeps my cholesterol low, I should continue to use it since it is less expensive than precription drugs.

                            I had significant problems with statins. Primarily joint and muscle pains. It took a while to associate the pain with the statins. Decided to try a red rice yeast product. HDL went from a low of 39 to 45 and the total cholesterol and LDL are now well within normal ranges.

                            Results have been consistent since I started using the product. Highly recommend it especially if statins are giving you issues.

                                This is a great product that has definitely helped me lower and maintain my cholesterol level within a normal range. I had originally tried a generic statin drug prescribed by my doctor which gave me bad side affects. He had no resolution to this nor could he suggest an alternative medication. Instead he made up a bunch of excuses. I began taking this supplement on the advice of my new doctor. This supplement works and has never caused me the bad side affect that that prescription drug caused. I recommend this supplement it to anyone who is sensitive to medications or concerned about the side affects and expense if taking prescription medications who wants to manage their high blood cholesterol levels.

                                    cholestene has worked wonders for my cholesterol. went from 250 to 176 in less than 3 months. this brand of cholestene has worked better than other brands named red yeast rice. they did not work as well as cholestene.

                                        I have taken statins with some side affects. This cholestene product has helped in that area. This is much better than the CoQu10 another doctor recommended. I just reordered and plan to keep on doing so in the future.

                                            This stuff is GREAT! My cholesterol is always high. This brought my cholesterol down from 278 to 172 in less than 2 months. All other values (LDL, HDL, TG) are normal now. I have been taking it religiously since then. 2 caps AM and 2 caps PM. No side effects.

                                                    My husband's cholesterol is naturally abnormally high, even on an extremely healthy diet. This product keeps it down in a safe range. Other brands we've tried don't seem to work as well.

                                                    Best Answer: No. It is an excellent product though. My husband and I have taken it at one time or another but you do not have to take it with the Cholestene. JC

                                                    My doctor told me to take one tablet of Chinese red rice yeast 600 mg at bedtime for 4 weeks. Originally I had bought Vitamin Shoppe brand at 1200 mg (which he had originally told me to get) but the pills were too big and I have a problem swallowing. Do you have either a 600 mg tablet of either Cholestene or your Vitamin Shoppe brand? I'm wondering if he made a mistake on the dosage and meant 1200 mg daily. Everyone seems to be on a regimen of 4 1200 mg daily. Thanks for your reply and I will wait to purchase until I hear. Much appreciate your time.
