1) Is there anything that I should be taking to offset any potential damage or side effects that this Riz-Strol might do? I know that some people take pills to guard against what the statins do to their system- is it like CoQ or something? Should I be taking something like that concurrently?

2) What IS this stuff? Browsing the boards it SEEMED like Riz-strol actually contained the same stuff as lovistatin: is that true? Is this just a cheaper and more natural way of getting the same stuff as in the prescription meds? If so, I LIKE it! -
Anyway- from what I gathered IT SEEMED like Riz-strol contained 2.5 mg lovistatin per caplet... correct me if I'm wrong.

3) What do you think of my plan? I kind of wanted to do the least bit of pill popping for the maximum effect. Since it's been proven that my diet really isn't effecting my serum cholesterol, I'm going to go back to eating normal-like with a few exeptions: I'm still watching transfats and cutting back on obvious offenders (no shellfish, etc). I didn't want to be too Spartan but I'm not going to go and disregard diet altogether. Also, I didn't want to take 15 pills a day, so I thought that I'd start with Riz-Strol since people seem to have been getting some pretty maximum results from it with the least amount of possible side effects (whenever people mention "flushing" it creeps me out- I don't know what it is, but it doesn't sound good and I don't want it happening to me!)


Taking CoQ10 is a good idea. Th dosage is speculative. I take 100mg day of the highly soluble variety.

In the supplement you are looking at the only think that is going to effect your cholesterol directly is the Red Yeast Rice. It is a statin. Many do have good results.
