How are best results achieved with Red Yeast Rice?
This product works on reducing cholesterol synthesis by suppressing the HMG CoA reductase enzyme. Research concludes that we make most of our endogenous cholesterol while sleeping, therefore, take at bedtime rather than early in the day. Start with 2 capsules per day and increase to 4 per day if needed.
Consider giving this product with coenzyme Q10 since CoQ10 production may be altered as both cholesterol and CoQ10 are synthesized in this same pathway.
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day in the evening, preferably before bed, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
