About red yeast rice

Red yeast rice has been used in China for over 1,000 years for medicinal purposes. It was described in an ancient Chinese list of drugs as useful for improving blood circulation and for alleviating indigestion and diarrhea. Recently functional red yeast rice has been developed by Chinese and American Scientists as a product to lower blood lipids, including cholesterol and triglycerides.
In 1977, Professor Endo in Japan discovered a natural cholesterol-lowering substance that is produced by a strain of Monascus yeast (named moncacolin-K) which is main composition of functional red yeast rice.
Studies have shown that red yeast rice can significantly lower levels of total cholesterol and specificallyLDL, or "bad" cholesterol.
