Liver Disease Producter- Red Yeast Rice Extract

Red yeast rice is a substance made by fermenting a type of red yeast called Monascus purpureus over rice. Red yeast rice extract has been used in China as a preservative, spice, and food coloring. It's used to give Peking duck its characteristic red color and can also be an ingredient in fish sauce, fish paste, and rice wine. Red yeast rice extract is used in traditional Chinese medicine as a remedy for poor circulation, indigestion, and diarrhea.

Red yeast rice extract contains naturally-occurring substances called monacolins. Monocolins, particularly one called lovastatin, is believed to be converted in the body to a substance that inhibits HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme that triggers cholesterol production. Because of this action, red rice yeast extract products containing a higher concentration of monocolins have been developed and marketed as a natural product to lower cholesterol.

The problem is that the primary ingredient in these supplements, lovastatin, is also the active pharmaceutical ingredient in prescription drugs for high cholesterol such as Mevacor. In fact, Lovastatin Red Yeast Rice Extract was originally derived from another type of red yeast called Monascus ruber.

When the FDA discovered that red yeast rice extract contained a substance found in prescription drugs, it banned red yeast rice products containing lovastatin. In August, 2007, the FDA issued a warning that several red yeast rice extract products still contained lovastatin. The manufacturers of these products have since recalled these products.
