    Red Yeast Rice effecting cholesterol


    Just wondering - when making your cycle support do you use red yeast rice that was produced using the 'Went' strain of Monascus purpureus? When it's made with this method it contains high amounts of lovastatin and can lower cholesterol just like prescription meds (up to 20%). However the evil fda tried to (or did) make this method illegal since they're losing money from it. They'd rather people buy prescription statins so they can make $$$ off of us (such BS). I guess when RYR is produced from methods other than the 'Went' strain it really doesn't contain lovastatin and does nothing for your cholesterol.

    "Red Yeast Rice contains several other cholesterol lowering agents including monacolins, sterols, and certain isoflavones, which provide the bulk of the chol. lowering properties. The amount of statin (Lovastatin) contained in Red Yeast Rice is trace. Three grams contains~ 5mgs of the statin, compared to perscribed dosages of Lovastatin in the 20-40mgs range."

    Thanks

    I dont know what all the fuss is about!

    many thanks. I'm very impressed how fast you answered my query.

    p.s just realised your the owner of AI! Sorry I thought you were a rep when I repped!

    Anabolic Innovations also offers a RYR Free version that contains Beta Sitosterol in place of the RYR.

    As one of several phytosterols, plant compounds with chemical structures similar to that of cholesterol, beta-sitosterol is commonly found in foods such as wheat germ, soybeans, and corn oil. Over the past few years, concentrated extracts of this particular phytosterol have been tested for lowering cholesterol and lessening such discomforts of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as frequent and painful urination.

    Beta-sitosterol appears to reduce cholesterol levels by blocking absorption of cholesterol. A review of several double-blind studies designed to test the efficacy of beta-sitosterol in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia showed that the phytosterol (beta-sitostero) significantly improved urological symptoms and flow measure in study participants.

    Other purported benefits of Beta-sitosterol include boosting immunity and normalizing blood sugar, relieving inflammation, healing ulcers, enhancing uterine tone, and alleviating cramps. However, these health benefits of beta-sitosterol have not been substantiated by scientific evidence.

    Honestly these sorts of threads are what makes a company better and better.

    As we have said from the beginning. Let's make products people ask for instead of making what WE want to and then spending tons of money convincing the consumer it is what THEY want.

    Thank you again to both of you.

    Well whoever decided to come out with CS is a genius. Who doesn't need it that runs cycles? Not to mention who doesn't need it in general with age. Is the new RYR free CS new? I just noticed it. Also I know this is a stretch but have you guys considered larger tubs of CS?

    Thank you for the kind words.

    Lake Mount D deserves the credit

    He formulated Cycle Support, I agree he did a great job. RYR free CS is not too new. We have thought about the larger tubs but have not decided anything definite yet.

    can cycle support be used at other times besides during a cycle. Life support looks pretty good but the RYR in it bothers me so I was thinking of getting cycle support instead.

    There are guys that run it year long...That was one of the reasons Life Support was created.

    Taking one scoop of Cycle Support is the same thing as two doses of Life Support.

    I just heard that about Canada and RYR yesterday. Sounds like you might need to start using RYR Free Cycle Support from NP.
