          Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Red Yeast Rice 1200 MG - 240 Capsules:

          I am 47 years old now and was taking a 40 mg. cholesterol pill daily for about 5 years (246 was my highest).
          I started out taking 2 red yeast rice capsules twice a day with the prescription for about 2 months. Now I have been off that prescription 2 years. My cholesterol has never raised above 184. A MUST have!

            I take 2 capsules twice daily. I had high
            Cholesterol at my last blood draw and my Cardiologist wanted to place me on prescription drugs, which I resist at any time due to wanting to handle my health issues with vitamins and minerals if I can. I am now awaiting my March 2015 Cholesterol test and I am anticipating to see a difference to the good. I see nothing but positive in choosing to be my own advocate with my health.

                                  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.

                                              I am unable to use the statin drugs. Would this along with diet be a good alternative or will I need to add other minerals,vitamins etc for best coverage? Thank you

                                              Best Answer: 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.

                                              Does this product contain "CITRININ", as it does not say on the label whether it does or does not??
                                              Thank you.
