🌾 CONSUMER WARNING: The Real TRUTH About Red Yeast Rice, Statin Drugs and Lowering Your Cholesterol
Recently I’ve been getting a lot of emails about the safety of using Red Yeast Rice to naturally lower cholesterol levels.

Does it work, is it safe, and does it have the same side-effects of statin “cholesterol lowering” drugs?…

One reason for all the questions and concerns is because Consumer Reports came out with a list of the 15 Supplement Ingredients to Always Avoid and Red Yeast Rice was one of the 15 ingredients on the list.

And this is a very important topic because if the right form and amount of Red Yeast Rice is used, it’s an amazingly effective and safe ingredient.

The Consumer Reports feedback about Red Yeast Rice… Unfortunately, the information is vague, wrong and inaccurate. They stated risks as:

“Kidney and muscle problems, liver problems, hair loss; can magnify effect of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, increasing the risk of side effects”

However, what they HAVE done is inaccurately listed “statin” drug side-effects!…

Statin Drugs Are The REAL Problem

One of the most prescribed drugs in the world for almost 2 decades, are cholesterol lowering statin drugs.

Doctors used to (and still do) say how these drugs are “so amazing and healthy” for you. And the minute anyone had even slightly elevated cholesterol levels, doctors were quick to prescribe these powerful (and harmful) drugs.

However, in the past few years the truth has come out… The fact that statin drugs are very toxic and have numerous side-effects — such as memory loss, muscle pain, liver damage, diabetes, high blood pressure, impotence and more.

Red Yeast Rice & Statins

Red Yeast Rice (a regular diet staple in Asia) naturally contains low levels of monacolin K, which is chemically similar to the active ingredient in the cholesterol-lowering statin drug Lovastatin.

And because of this, Consumer Reports automatically and incorrectly ASSUMES that Red Yeast Rice is the “same” as statin drugs and thus, will have the same negative side-effects of statin drugs.

Not only is this wrong, but it’s illegal in the US because…

FDA Won’t Allow This

In 2008, the FDA determined that red yeast rice products that contain more than trace amounts of monacolin K are considered as an “unapproved new drug” and cannot be sold legally as dietary supplements.

And this was done primarily because the pharmaceutical companies didn’t want a natural ingredient to compete with their harmful drugs.

Red yeast rice can’t cause any statin side-effects, if it doesn’t contain any “statin” in it.

However, Red yeast rice still has numerous health and cholesterol-lowering benefits that is NOT related to monacolin K or lovastatin, and without any negative side-effects.2,5

So Consumer Reports was all wrong about Red Yeast Rice’s negative side-effects.

Problem 1: Citrinin

Some red yeast rice products contain a contaminant called citrinin, which can cause kidney failure in high dosages.4

So when purchasing any product containing Red Yeast Rice, make sure the citrinin is removed.

Problem 2: Don’t Use It By Itself

You never want to use Red Yeast Rice by itself because you’d have to use a very high dosage of it for it to work and be effective.

The best products use red yeast rice, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to help create healthy cholesterol levels, HDL/LDL ratios and triglycerides.

Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a cholesterol-lowering product, which also work in synergy with red yeast rice are:

Pantesin® d-Pantethine
Garlic Extract
Artichoke Leaf Extract
Phytosterols Complex
Cleanse & Strengthen Your Liver

This is exactly the problem my parents had in 1998 and that’s why they now use an “all-in-one” remedy called CholesLo™.
