Cholestin: This is the brand name for a strain of yeast grown on rice. It is also known as red yeast rice, and is used in food throughout Asia. Cholestin was found to contain natural ingredients that can lower cholesterol levels in a very safe way.
It was reported that in conjunction with exercise and a balanced diet, cholestin can reduce cholesterol levels by an average of 25-40 points.
Caution: people already taking cholesterol-reducing drugs should consult their doctor before taking cholestin.
