Red Yeast Rice + CoQ10 contains an organic red yeast rice derived from Monascus purpureus, in addition to CoQ10. Monascus purpureus contains many compounds called monocolins. Monocolins have much research supporting their beneficial effect on heart health. CoQ10 is also included in Red Yeast Rice + CoQ10 due to the fact that it is produced in the body by the same pathway as cholesterol. Red yeast rice affects this pathway, and the inclusion of CoQ10 helps to protect ideal levels of this nutrient.
- High cholesterol can be dangerous to overall health and cause chest pain, heart attack, and stroke.

Good quality of supplement
Great for Inflammation
I suffer from RA and fibromyalgia. I took one of these a day for a week, and my inflammation went down drastically. I could actually sleep through the night. I missed a couple days and my body flared up which brought the pain back. Since then, I take daily and stopped the crazy prescriptions that damage the organs the doctors would prescribe. How it works for cholesterol, I'm not sure yet, but I am anxious for my next lab work.
Red Yeast Rice
Taking with no issues - hoping to see improvements in my next blood work.
Red yeast rice + Co Q10
Using the red yeast rice is a natural way to reduce & control my cholesterol. It also has improved my ratios by increasing the HDL. Having the CoQ10 in the same capsule means I don’t miss a dose.
It was recommended by one of my doctors that I take this periodically for cholesterol- it’s well packaged and so far seems to be high quality!
