nuway,

Red Yeast Rice IS a statin...low dose lovastatin. (Lipex is simvastatin, a stronger statin.)
Lenin You are correct red yeast rice contains about 0.4% Monokolin K which is Lovastatin.Compare this to a 20Mg synthetic dose of Simvastatin there is a big difference.What I said was I am glad I am not taking "SYNTHETIC CONCENTRATED STATINS".They are not sure but scientists believe it is a combination between the Monokolin K and the yeast that makes it work so well.
