Wellness Red yeast rice contains a type of fermented rice that is produced using a specific species of mold. It’s been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for its powerful health-promoting properties. Red yeast rice contains the compound monacolin K, the same active ingredient found in prescription cholesterol-lowering medications like lovastatin.

Active Ingredients:

  • Red Yeast Rice (semen purpereus extract) (NMT 1% monacolin-k) 500mg
  • Milk Thistle Extract (semen silybum marianum) 100mg.


  • Inflammation is a normal immune response designed to protect your body against acute infections and foreign invaders.
  • Monacolin K is the active compound found in red yeast rice that is commonly extracted and used in cholesterol-lowering statins and medications.
  • It’s typically credited with the majority of the health benefits attributed to red yeast rice, especially regarding its cholesterol-lowering properties.
  • According to the FDA, red yeast rice products that contain monacolin K should be considered a drug, subjecting them to stricter regulations than standard over-the-counter supplements.
  • In recent years, a number of red yeast rice supplements have popped up, many of which evade FDA regulations by containing only trace amounts of monacolin-K.
  • Red yeast rice may cause gastrointestinal issues, allergic reactions, liver toxicity and muscle problems. It’s not recommended for people taking statins or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
