High cholesterol is a dangerous thing. It can cause a myriad of problems including a heart condition, liver issues, and decreased blood flow. Nature's Bounty® Red Yeast Rice 600mg (300 ct) is a natural supplement that can help lower cholesterol levels over time.
What Is Nature's Bounty Red Yeast Rice 600mg Used?
As a top herbal supplement, Nature's Bounty Red Yeast Rice 600mg is often used to lower LDL, or bad, cholesterol levels. The red yeast rice works to stop the enzyme that makes cholesterol from working. It has a similar makeup to that of lovastatin, a popular prescription medication that does the same thing.
Is Red Yeast Rice Safe?
Like most herbal health supplements, red yeast rice is considered safe. However, there are risks involved, as with any medication. Those who have liver disease or a high risk of liver disease should not take red yeast rice as it may contribute to liver issues, much like a prescription statin. Those who have musculoskeletal problems or thyroid conditions should also avoid taking the supplement. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take Nature's Bounty Red Yeast Rice 600mg as there is a risk of birth defects. As with any natural herbal supplement, you should always consult your doctor before taking if you are on medication as there may be a severe reaction between the two drugs.
Does Nature's Bounty Red Yeast Rice Contain Lovastatin?
Nature's Bounty supplement Red Yeast Rice derives from the monascus purpureus plant. Use of this Chinese plant comes from centuries of treatment with red yeast rice for ailments. The plant contains natural lovastatin. Some studies show that it can reduce the level of LDL as much as 26 percent over a few months.
How Many Servings of Red Yeast Rice Per Container?
Each serving requires two capsules of the herbal supplement. This bottle contains 150 servings. They are made with non-GMO plant extract. There is no sodium or gluten in the supplements and are also preservative-free.
