Recently we did an open label study on 8 patients who took CardioTabs Red Yeast Rice 2 capsules twice daily with food and 1 teaspoon of CardioTabs liquid fish oil daily. After just 6 weeks of taking these supplements we saw significant changes in their cholesterol profiles. The average changes were as follows:
Total Cholesterol Reduction: 22 %
LDL Reduction: 28%
Triglycerides Reduction: 22%
HDL (Good Cholesterol) Raising 15%
Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio Reduction: 27%
These results are similar to what we have seen with some cholesterol lowering prescription medications. The patients in the study were amazed at the results they achieved with these over the counter supplements. This is an excellent non prescription regimen that is both safe and effective for patients who need support for achieving optimal cholesterol levels.
*Please note Red Yeast Rice should not be taken with statin medications. If you are interested in changing your current regimen or need advice on how to better control your cholesterol profile please consult with your health care provider.
