Hoping these will work.
I have been taking these at the suggestion of my Dr. I am trying to lower my cholesterol without the statins since they give me such painful side effects. I will continue to take these until the next check up and see if there is a downward change in my numbers.

Same excellent product in a new package. I have improved cholesterol and experience no hot flash/sunburn feeling with this brand that I've experienced with other brands. I've used this brand for ten years and is the only one I'll take.

Any known issues with red yeast rice relating to kidney function?
A shopper on Mar 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Red Yeast supplements do not typically harm the kidneys. The main kidney related issues arise from improper filtration of the supplement during production; this can result in contamination that can have an adverse effect on kidney function. Further, the supplement is not recommended for people with reduced kidney function due to an inability to filter out the products of metabolism.
I've read that Red Yeast Rice extract contains an ingredient, monacolin K (MK), that is not allowed to be sold in the USA since that ingredient is only available by prescription in the USA. So what benefit would these products that are reformulated with new ingredients and are bottled and sold in the USA provide if the active ingredient that provides benefit to lower cholesterol must be removed when sold in the USA?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: One of the ingredients in red yeast rice appears to block the production of cholesterol in the liver.

A shopper on Jul 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The ingredients list does not include anything that contains gluten, however the product is not specifically labeled "gluten free".
