Red yeast rice can lower cholesterol levels – ‘natural’ statins

More specifically, a healthy level of high-density lipoprotein is one or more mmol/l and you should have four or less mmol/l of low-density lipoprotein.

Mr Batt’s advice was backed by a meta-analysis of existing studies published in the Atherosclerosis journal.

It found that red yeast rice could “significantly” decrease low-density lipoprotein.

“Red yeast rice exerts a clinically and statistically significant reduction of 1.02 mmol/L low-density lipoprotein cholesterol,” it says.
