Health Notes

Red Yeast Rice

Red Yeast Rice
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

High Cholesterol
Dose: 1.2 to 2.4 grams (5 to 10 mg of monacolins) daily in divided amounts
One of the ingredients in red yeast rice appears to block the production of cholesterol in the liver.(more)
High Triglycerides
Dose: 13.5 mg total monacolins daily
Although primarily used to lower high serum cholesterol, red yeast rice extract, high in monacolins, has been found to significantly lower serum triglyceride levels.(more)
Heart Attack
Dose: 300 mg twice a day (with doctor supervision)
In one trial that included patients with a previous history of a heart attack, supplementing with a particular brand of Chinese red yeast rice that contained 6 mg per day of lovastatin (a statin drug) reduced risk of death from heart disease. (more)
High Cholesterol
Dose: 1.2 to 2.4 grams (5 to 10 mg of monacolins) daily in divided amounts

Researchers have determined that one of the ingredients in red yeast rice, called monacolin K, inhibits the production of cholesterol by stopping the action of the key enzyme in the liver (HMG-CoA reductase) that is responsible for manufacturing cholesterol.1 Monacolin K is the same compound as lovastatin (Mevacor), a prescription drug used to treat high cholesterol. However, the amount of monacolin K in red yeast rice is small (5 mg per 2.4 grams of red yeast rice) when compared with the 20 to 40 mg of lovastatin typically used to lower cholesterol levels.2 It appears that monacolin compounds present in red yeast rice work together with monacolin K to produce a greater cholesterol-lowering effect than would be expected from the small amount of monacolin K alone.

The red yeast rice used in various studies was a proprietary product called Cholestin, which contains ten different monacolins.

Note: Cholestin has been banned in the United States, as a result of a lawsuit alleging patent infringement.

Other red yeast rice products currently on the market differ from Cholestin in their chemical makeup. None contain the full complement of ten monacolin compounds that are present in Cholestin, and some contain a potentially toxic fermentation product called citrinin.3 Despite these concerns, other red yeast rice products are being widely used and both anecdotal reports and clinical research suggest that they have a similar safety and efficacy profile as that of Cholestin.4, 5, 6

High Triglycerides
Dose: 13.5 mg total monacolins daily

Although primarily used to lower high serum cholesterol, red yeast rice extract, high in monacolins, has been found to significantly lower serum triglyceride levels.1 People in the trial took 1.2 grams (approximately 13.5 mg total monacolins) of a concentrated red yeast rice extract per day for two months. The sale of Cholestin has been banned in the United States, as a result of a lawsuit alleging patent infringement. Other red yeast rice products currently on the market differ from Cholestin in their chemical makeup. None contain the full complement of 10 monacolin compounds that are present in Cholestin, and some contain a potentially toxic fermentation product called citrinin. 2 Until further information is available, red yeast rice products other than Cholestin cannot be recommended.

Heart Attack
Dose: 300 mg twice a day (with doctor supervision)In a double-blind trial that included patients with a previous history of a heart attack, supplementation with a particular brand of Chinese red yeast rice (Xuezhikang) in the amount of 300 mg twice a day for an average of 4.5 years reduced the death rate from heart disease by about one-third, compared with a placebo.1Xuezhikang is grown by a method that increases its content of lovastatin (a statin drug), and patients in this study received about 6 mg per day of lovastatin from taking Xuezhikang. It is not known whether other red yeast rice products would produce similar benefits.
