High cholesterol: Red yeast rice could be the answer to lowering your cholesterol levels


In 1977, Professor Endo in Japan discovered a natural cholesterol-lowering substance that is produced by a strain of Monascus yeast, said Medicine.net

The health site continued: “This substance inhibits HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that is important for the production of cholesterol in the body.

“Professor Endo named this substance moncacolin K.

“Since then, scientists have discovered a total of eight monacolin-like substances that have cholesterol-lowering properties.”
