I've recently added Red Yeast Rice to my arsenal to help combat slightly high cholesterol.
After digging into the literature I came across some troubling information. It seems the potency of RYR can no longer be as great as it was years ago. Apparently the pharmacuetical industry and the FDA don't like effective, natural statins cutting into their share of the statin/ cholesterol-control market.
But I also read that that information is bunk and the RYR you buy today is still as potent as ever. Since RYR isn't cheap it would be nice to know what the deal is...
PA (or anybody else), do you know if the RYR you buy OTC today is potent and effective at controlling cholesterol or am I just wasting my money? Thanks.
