Cholesterol is a soft waxy fat-like substance found within the bloodstream and cells of the body. It is produced naturally in our bodies and very important for many aspects of human health. Although we need cholesterol to maintain our body’s daily functions too much cholesterol in the blood is a major risk factor for heart disease.
Red yeast rice (RYR) has long been used for cholesterol reduction by practitioners of Traditional Modern Medicine as it is considered to be a natural source of statins. Statins work by inhibiting the activity of a key enzyme in the biological pathway that creates cholesterol. Although the pharmaceutical option to RYR are statin medications they utilize the same biological pathway that is also responsible for creating important nutrients such as CoQ10 and vitamin D. Overload of these pathways could affect the supply of critical nutrients needed by our bodies.
