Cholesterol is a fatty substance made by the liver and is vital for every cell of the body. As the body makes what it needs we don’t generally need to add cholesterol through the diet. However, many diets include foods rich in cholesterol such as foods high in saturated fats like pork, beef, sausages and dairy foods. Native to China, red yeast rice is a fermentation by-product of cooked non-glutinous rice on which red yeast has been grown. It contains small amounts of naturally occurring Monacolin K. Monacolin K appears to inhibit the action of an enzyme in the liver (3-hydroxy-3-methylgutaryl coenzyme A reductase) that is responsible for producing cholesterol.
