This product contains 1.2 grams of organic red yeast rice per serving derived from U.S. grown Monascus purpureus, a yeast that contains several compounds collectively known as monacolins. Research shows that monacolin may support overall cardiovascular health.* Monacolin K, in particular, has been shown to help maintain healthy blood lipid levels through its interaction with the production of HMG-CoA reductase, the enzyme directly involved in determining how much cholesterol the body produces.
The red yeast rice in this product is USDA certified organic and non-GMO and is grown in the U.S. Designs for Health takes great care to assay their red yeast rice to assure that there are undetectable levels of a common fungal contaminant known as citrinin, as well as substantial levels of naturally-occurring monacolin compounds, especially monacolin K.
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day in the evening, preferably before bed, or as directed by your health care practitioner.

Consult with your health care practitioner if you are currently taking a statin medication. Similar to a statin drug, RYR may reduce levels of CoQ10 and vitamin K, which may increase the risk of adverse effects seen with medication use such as gastrointestinal distress, myalgias, hepatitis, myopathies, rash, peripheral neuropathies, and central nervous system effects.*
For optimal cardiovascular health, consider combining Red Yeast Rice with CoQ10.
