                        I needed to lower my cholesterol and didn't want to take any pharmaceuticals. So my natureopathic doc recommended Red Yeast Rice, combined with No Flush Niacin.

                            This product really helped to bring my cholesterol levels down. I was shocked! There is some controversy regarding Red Yeast Rice, so you might want to research it a bit to make sure that this is a good fit for you. If it isn't...I highly recommend Vitamin Shop Oat Bran supplements. Another great buy.

                                I have been taking Vitamin Shoppe Red Yeast Rice for years, ever since my doctor diagnosed high blood pressure. Before that, my cholesterol readings would always come back high. I do have a bad diet. While a better diet would be best, I know I am not going to change the way I eat, so I started taking this. My wife takes a drug to reduce her high cholesterol but it has lots of side effects. The Red Yeast Rice has kept my cholesterol levels down, even though my good cholesterol readings are a little low, my bad cholesterol readings are in the normal range. I feel confident this is due to taking the Red Yeast Rice and it has no side effects. I always buy Vitamin Shoppe brand supplements because they do not have the bad fillers like corn starch (which I am allergic to) and because they have no high fructose corn syrup. Highly recommended. However, don't self-diagnose and rely on this alone. Talk to your doctor and make sure you are getting the help you need. Red Yeast Rice may not be enough.

                                    Carole N: I refuse to take statin drugs of any kind. Both of my parents and two aunts have had moderate to severe reactions to the drugs. I am allergic to numerous drugs myself, so am not willing to take the chance on how I'd react to statins.

                                    As a result, I take Red Yeast Rice along with CO Q 10. It works slower and does not give the dramatic results the statins do, but keeps my cholesterol within an acceptable range.

                                    You may have to experiment with the dosage to find what's best for you, but a counselor at VS can advise you as to what dosage to begin with and how much to increase it.

                                    Janyce S: My Physicians Assistant recommended Red Yeast Rice and No-Flush Niacin to help keep cholesterol at a good level. I was unable to use the Red Yeast Rice, but I do take the No-Flush niacin. My husband has used both of the above for several years. He just had his cholesterol checked and it was good. His doctor told him to continue using these supplements. We are also careful to use eggs high in omega 3's, and USDA organic milk and butter, as well as anything else organic we can find, as well as our raw multi vitamin from Garden of Life. We believe these things all help. Good luck. Mar 4, 2013

                                    Harvey K: Janyce, "At a good level" doesn't mean much. What were the cholesterol, HDL, LDL and Triglycerides before taking, and what were the same 3 months later? Apr 6, 2013
                                    Catherine C: I used Red Yeast Rice with the proper diet for years and had my doctor monitor my levels. We were happy with the results. Red Yeast Rice is a natural plant based statin so I don't know if that would be an issue for you. I would suggest having your doctor look at the ingedient list.

                                    Currently I am on Vitamin Shoppe Vit. E supplement instead. I will see at my next checkup if this, with proper diet, is sufficient. My doctor said this is preferable to the low dose aspirin for me as I have developed a mild allergy to anti-inflammatories.

                                    Dennis F: If it doesn't get your cholesterol levels low enough by itself,
                                    you might want to try niacin and both should be monitored by your doctor.

                                    Other good things are fish oils and garlic.

                                    Good luck.

                                    Roger B: As always, you should talk to your doctor. When I had a reaction to a statin, my doctor went along with my proposal to use Red Yeast Rice along with niacin. Control has been fairly good until my last test. Mar 5, 2013
