Red Yeast Rice is produced by fermenting yeast over rice. It may help lower cholesterol, improve blood circulation, and help digestion. Because Red Yeast Rice is a natural type of statin and inhibits the enzyme in the body that is needed to make cholesterol, it blocks the body's ability to produce Coenzyme Q-10 (Co-Q10). Co-Q10 is required for the production of energy within every cell of our body and is critical for the health of all tissues and organs. This is why Co-Q10 is paired with Red Yeast Rice.
