Red rice yeast has been proven to lower levels of bad cholesterol in the blood as effectively as most pharmaceutical drugs that are prescribed to help lower cholesterol levels. In addition, red rice yeast has been proven in a number of research studies to help lower high levels of triglycerides in the blood. Like cholesterol, trigycerides can affect blood circulation by clogging blood vessels in the body. Red rice yeast (or, as it’s more often called – red yeast rice) contains a substance called monacolin K which inhibits the production of cholesterol in the liver. This is exactly the same action that prescription drugs like lovastatin (Mexacor) and Lipitor have on the production of cholesterol.
Red Yeast Rice is effective in lowering blood cholesterol levels of total cholesterol. Red Yeast Rice is used to promote blood circulation, soothe an upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen.

The dietary supplement has also been used traditionally for bruised muscles, hangovers, indigestion, and colic in infants.
