Natural Alternative for Lipid Management
Red yeast rice is the product of yeast (Monascus purpureus) containing several compounds collectively known as monacolins, substances that have been shown by clinical studies to modulate blood lipids. One of these, "monacolin K," is a potent inhibitor of the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme.

The red yeast rice in Organic RYR™ is USDA certified organic and grown in the USA. Designs for Health takes great care to assay our red yeast rice to assure that there are undetectable levels of citrinin (< 1 ppm), as well as substantial levels of naturally-occurring monacolin compounds, especially monacolin K.

How are best results achieved with Organic RYR™?
This product works on reducing cholesterol synthesis by suppressing the HMG CoA reductase enzyme. Research concludes that we make most of our endogenous cholesterol while sleeping, therefore, take at bedtime rather than early in the day. Start with 2 capsules per day and increase to 4 per day if needed.
Consider giving this product with coenzyme Q10 since CoQ10 production may be altered as both cholesterol and CoQ10 are synthesized in this same pathway.
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules in the evening, preferably before bed or as directed by your health care practitioner.wheat, soy, gluten, eggs, dairy, corn, artificial colors, flavors, sugars, or preservatives.
