I just did the body check last week and found that the bad cholesterol level has been reduced. The red yeast rice gold is amazing, it will not immediately change the cholesterol level but it will gradually improve.
I'm already ordering a second jar. Capsules of medium size, brown color, odorless and tasteless. Packaging is standard. The composition of the capsules is absolutely natural. Helps in metabolism, reduces "bad" cholesterol. I take 2 pieces in the morning and evening with meals. I was recommended by a doctor in an integrated approach. The price and quality are acceptable.
My cholesterol levels finally got a little high so am trying this. This seems to be a reputable brand. The bottle was about half full so I wish they would reduce the packaging though. Will blood test again in few months. Am taking 2x2 per day (4) with food. Capsules are not too big. Am also taking this brand's IP6 to reduce my high-ish iron levels, as iron is also linked to cholesterol, and adjusting my diet a little, reducing dairy and meat.
I wish all companies made supplements this way. It contains only one ingredient, Organic Red Yeast Rice, and Pullulan, a vegetable capsule. I will be retesting my blood in 3 months to see the results, but I can tell that there is less tiredness in my heart.
I just recently bought these again to see if they will help bring down my LDL. Statin drugs have too many side affects. I will review again after a few months and new lab results.
Thanks iherb for having the best prices.
