The most well-known of red yeast rice benefits is by far its potential to LOWER CHOLESTEROL. Many people with high cholesterol turn to red yeast rice supplements to avoid the dangers of statins. These cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins have been linked with some really concerning side effects, including memory loss, liver damage, muscle pain, high blood sugar, and even development of type 2 diabetes. Red yeast rice is created by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus with rice. It then has naturally occurring chemical called monacolins, which block the production of cholesterol. The benefit is lessening the side effects of cholesterol lowering drugs while getting cholesterol numbers down to a healthy level. It (and any statin)should always be taken with CoQ10 (at least 90–120 milligrams daily) to prevent deficiency in CoQ10.

Most studies have used a standardized extract of 600 milligrams taken two to four each day — so that can be 1,200 milligrams twice a day, which is equivalent to 600 milligrams four times per day or 2,400 milligrams per day. At least one study has shown that elderly individuals who took 1,200 milligrams (1.2 grams) of RYR every day for eight weeks did not have any major side effects.
