Red Yeast Rice is believed to have several heart-healthy benefits. It seems to help reduce total cholesterol levels, lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase levels of HDL (good) cholesterol, and lower levels of unhealthy fats called triglycerides.
Red Yeast Rice contains unsaturated fatty acids which are also believed to be useful for lowering triglycerides. By lowering cholesterol concentrations, red yeast rice extract may support healthy heart function.
