Red Yeast Rice contains a natural substance known as monacolin or lovastatin, after being fermented with a red yeast known as Monascus purpureus. The benefits of this substance have been tested in studies which have proven how it helps to lower the bad cholesterol (LDL), since it has similar properties to statins, although it is not a medicine.
In the last few years, taking red yeast rice has become really popular, specially as food supplements which are available in parapharmacies, herbalist's shops and in the HSN online store. However, you cannot combine it with other products or medicines with statins, since it could cause an overdose. Traditionally, this red yeast rice has been used in China due to its benefits for health, different from other types of yeasts, but effective for cosmetic or hygiene treatments due to its Vitamin content for the hair or skin.

Since red yeast is a natural substance that works in synergy with the body and its processes, it is one of the best remedies against cholesterol since it does not trigger the side effects from medicines and other artificial treatments.
However, red yeast rice products also have a series of contraindications or side effects (pain, liver disorders, renal deterioration) and it should not be taken with medicines to lower the cholesterol, as we mentioned previously. Moreover, it is not recommended for pregnant women, adults over the age of 70 or people with hepatic problems.
