... Hey everybody- I posted a couple of days ago concerning this but it seems like either the title wasn't provocative enough or the thread got overlooked. So I'm kind of reposting with a more URGENT sounding title, hoping that someone might help answer some of my questions... Read on: 1) Went to the doctor 4 months ago. Bad news- High Cholesterol.

Riz-Strol
Apr 6, 2004
... Hi all, since I'm new to the boards (Although I've been browsing) I'll give you a little bit of history to my questions :) 1) Went to the doctor 4 months ago. Bad news- High Cholesterol. Total cholesterol: 242 Triglycerides: 83 HDL: 53 VLDL:17 and (YIKES) :172 (0 replies)
... 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. (9 replies)

... The Japanese have conducted quite a few clinical trials using beni-koji (Japanese red rice yeast): Tsuji, K., Ichikawa, T., Tanabe, N., Abe, S., Tarui, S. & Nakagawa, Y. (1992b). Effects of Beni-koji foods on blood pressure in spontaneously hypertensive rats. Nippon Shokuhin Kogyo Gakkaishi, 39, 919-924. Had access through my university to the journal. Above study uses...

... Just wanted to update you on the recent cholesterol news since I haven't posted since this April. Well, I've been taking "Riz-strol" Anyway- as you know I had cholesterol that was hovering around 258 even AFTER watching my diet. Then I started on this Riz-strol stuff: three caps a day and then later 2 per day (recently I've been not as consistent and only been doing 1... (9 replies)
... why don't you quit paying more for riz-strol and just by red yeast rice which is basically a statin like lovastatin. the red yeast rice is the only thing in it that will lower your cholesterol (9 replies)
... well, I'm interested in everyone RYR dosage. I'm taking this Riz-Strol 3x a day and it's got 500mg RYR extract in it or something. Other pills I've seen only have 300mg. After I follow the package directions I'm gonna lower the dosage to 3 and then to 1 pill a day. Again- I'm going for the "take as little supplement" as possible strategy with the philosophy that the... (9 replies)
... 1) Thanks for the answers so far. I think I'll try that CoQ stuff at a low dosage as you recommended. 2) I suppose that I am a little adverse to going prescription right off the bat. The Riz Strol stuff is going to be initially about $15/ for a month in the beginning but I'm going to lower the dose to 2 caps a day in the second month- and if that works, then to 1 cap a...

... goodby, I think it's a bad idea. Who is guaranteeing the statin sode of 2.5 mg lovastatin. On the cost: 20 mg. lovastatin: $ 36.99/30 days To get this dose of the Riz-stol you'd have to take a handful of pills and the cost will be MANY times the Rx lovastatin. With any statin, I think 100 mg CoQ10 is good but with a teeny dose like the herbal, it's probably not... (9 replies)
... I used a product you may be interested in. It is called Riz-strol by Organika. The product has red rice yeast, gugulipid, grape seed extract, artichoke extract, garlic powder.

... High cholestrol runs in my family so I thought I could never lower it unless I take medicine. This wasn't an option for me so I tried fish oil & red yeast rice tablets. Three mos. ago, my total was: 216; Tri- 100; HDL 63; LDL 134. During the 3 mos.
