What is Red Yeast Rice?
Red yeast (Monascus purpureus) that grows on rice yields a fermented product known as red yeast rice (RYR). RYR has a long history of use in Asia as a food, a flavoring/coloring agent, and a preservative. In Chinese medicine, RYR is also believed to support “blood circulation.” Much is often made of a class of active compounds in RYR called monacolins. By current count, there are more than ten different monacolins found in RYR, and they all appear to have slightly different effects.
But one should keep in mind that RYR is not a drug and is neither just one monacolin, nor a collection of monacolins. Rather, RYR is a complex food substance that also contains many bioactive components like sterols, isoflavones, and monounsaturated fatty acids. Other specific compounds found in RYR, such as monascin and ankaflavin, have recently been found to promote inflammatory health and even support beneficial HDL levels. Clearly, the benefits of RYR to cardiovascular health are more subtle than is often described.
Those interested in RYR should also be mindful that any product they take is monitored for citrinin content. Citrinin is a mycotoxin that targets the kidneys and is produced by numerous Penicillium and Aspergillus species. It can appear in RYR not grown under carefully controlled conditions.

Red Yeast Rice
The most well-known of red yeast rice benefits is by far its potential to lower cholesterol. Many people with high cholesterol turn to red yeast rice supplements to avoid the dangers of statins. These cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins have been linked with some really concerning side effects, including memory loss, liver damage, muscle pain, high blood sugar, and even development of type 2 diabetes.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that supplementing with red yeast rice can lower overall as well as LDL cholesterol, aka “bad cholesterol.” According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, benefits of red yeast rice also include improvements in circulation and digestion.
