Red Rice Yeast Instead of Statins?
Now that a scientific study has found that red rice yeast supplements work as well as statin drugs for cholesterol control I’m wondering if I should switch from the statin I now take. What’s your recommendation?

Answer (Published 6/30/2009)
You’re referring to a study published in the June 16, 2009 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine showing that a red rice yeast supplement worked as well to lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol as prescription statin drugs. The study included 62 patients, all of whom quit taking statins because of muscle pain, the most common side effect of these drugs. Half the 62 patients in the study received a red rice yeast supplement; the other half were given a placebo. After three months, average LDL levels among those taking the red rice yeast had dropped an average of 27 percent compared with six percent among the placebo group. All the participants were taught how to eat well, exercise and otherwise maintain a healthy lifestyle. Only seven percent of the patients taking the supplement developed muscle pain; among statin users, at least twenty percent experience muscle pain initially but many improve once their bodies get used to the drug.

Red rice yeast (Monascus purpureus) is a natural source of statins, but unlike pharmaceutical products, it provides a mix of these compounds rather than a single one. The complex mixture interacts with the body more smoothly and is less likely to cause toxicity.

One active ingredient in red rice yeast extract, monacolin K, is the active component of the FDA approved statin Mevacor. The lead researcher of the new study, David Becker, M.D., of Chestnut Hill Cardiology in Pennsylvania, said that because the dose of monacolin K in the red rice yeast supplement used in the study was five times smaller than the amount in a typical Mevacor prescription, “something else is having a powerful lipid-lowering effect.” Healthy lifestyle changes among the study participants probably didn’t account for the difference.

This is a valuable study, but I wouldn’t recommend switching from a statin to red rice yeast without your physician’s approval and supervision. Because supplements are unregulated and the demand for quality ingredients is growing, some products will not actually contain any red rice yeast extract and, as a result, won’t be effective.

I have put many patients on red rice yeast products with excellent results and have seen only two patients who could not tolerate them because of side effects. Note that anyone taking statins, either as red rice yeast or prescription drugs, should be on daily supplements of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Statins inhibit the body’s production of this coenzyme along with lowering cholesterol. CoQ10 is necessary for optimum function of muscles, including heart muscle.

Andrew Weil, M.D.

**Please do not buy Red Rice Yeast without, considering the need to supplement this product with CoQ10 Ubiquinol -Advanced Bio Active CoQ10. Please read thoroughly.

Warning: Do not use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding, because using this product may harm the fetus. Individuals with liver disease or those currently taking any medications should consult with a health practitioner prior to use.

Red Rice Yeast has a long history in Chinese medicine, thousands of years. This herbal dietary supplement is very powerful in producing a cholesterol lowering effect. Just as in any cholesterol lowering regimen, please consult your health care professional.

Please read White Paper on Red Rice Yeast for contraindications and cautionary notes.

Excerpt: How safe are red yeast rice products?

Animal studies have been conducted in China using high doses of red yeast rice products. No damage to the kidneys, liver, or other organs were demonstrated in these studies.

Human trials in China and in the United States reported only rare and minor side effects of heartburn or indigestion with the use red yeast rice products. No liver, kidney, or muscle toxicity has been reported.

However, human trials in the United States and China have generally lasted only a few weeks to a few months. Thus, conclusive proof of long term safety (over a period of many years) will have to await further data (such as from data received after the products have been marketed or long-term clinical trials).

Scientists conducting the studies generally believe that red yeast rice is safe in the long-term since it has been a food staple for thousands of years in Asian countries without reports of toxicity. They attribute the safety of red yeast rice products to the process of preparation that does not involve the isolation and concentration of a single ingredient. Although it is true that isolation and concentration enhance the potency of a single ingredient, these factors also increase the risk of side effects.

Ubiquinol – BioActive CoQ10

Dosage: Adults – 100 mgs daily

Optimal Health Bridge is very happy to be able to bring you the purest form of CoQ10, that is “pre-converted” and ready for immediate use by the muscles in your body, especially the most important muscle of all, your heart.

Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced in all cells of the body, and has been studied extensively for more than 40 years. It plays a crucial role in the production of cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which energizes all cell functions. CoQ10 also is an anti-oxidant, and has great importance as a free radical scavenger. It protects the stability of the cell membrane, protects DNA from free radical induced oxidative damage, and helps recycle vitamin E. The human body gradually loses its ability to synthesize this nutrient as we age. Production of Co-Q-10 in the liver is inhibited by statin drugs and red rice yeast.

Optimal Health RSQ Ubiquinol is an advanced form of CoQ10. Commonly available CoQ10 in capsule forms are poorly absorbed, and therefore require large doses (and correspondingly high costs) for therapeutic effect.

If You Take

  • Lipitor®
  • Zocor®
  • Any Other Cholesterol-Lowering Drug:

“The widespread use of statins — cholesterol lowering drugs — is of concern because they lower natural levels of CoQ10.

“Since CoQ10 is needed in the chain of events that produces energy, reduced CoQ10 levels may lower cell energy metabolism.

“This might show up as cardiomyopathy with exercise intolerance — heart failure.”

The Lancet Medical Journal

PLUS, more than 120 OTHER prescription drugs can cause severe CoQ10 deficiencies in your body!

The ONLY way to make sure your heart, your brain, your muscles and every organ in your body has the CoQ10 needed for optimum health and faster healing is to take CoQ10 supplements daily. If you are over 30, you should know that CoQ10 production in the body diminishes as we age. By the time you are 50 years old, the lack of muscle energy is noticed on a daily basis. Ubiquinol is the best product on the market today for replacing missing CoQ10.

If you are on statin medication, it’s guaranteed that you are cutting of the CoQ10 production in your own body. If you take any pharmaceutical drugs, there is a high probability that you are losing more CoQ10. Ubiquinol is the answer to the energy production needs of those who want to stay active later in life.

Optimal Health Bridge has joined in the distribution with a very important nutrient from Kaneka, Japan’s largest producer of CoQ10. Ubiquinol is the “reduced” form of CoQ10. Most CoQ10 must be taken with fat in order for it to absorb in the body. For years we have been selling CoQ10 Q-Gels from Tischon which is a water soluble form that is 3 times more absorbable.

Now, we are able to bring you 50 mg softgels of pure ubiquinol. This form of CoQ10 will absorb immediately in the body and serve the areas of the body where it is most needed. It’s important to note that your body produces CoQ10 but after age 30 we start to lose some of that production. Since it is the enzyme that makes ATP for muscular energy, the heart truly needs this supplement for it’s non-stop work. Many heart ailments can be helped by supplementing with CoQ10. Dr Vagnini on Res-Q Radio said CoQ10 is the “King of Cardiac Nutrients.” If you are on a statin regimen, if you use red rice yeast, then CoQ10 becomes that much more important.

Optimal Health Bridge is very happy to be able to bring you the purest form of CoQ10, that is “pre-converted” and ready for immediate use by the muscles in your body, especially the most important muscle of all, your heart.
