I've written in the past about the traditional Chinese supplement, Chinese Red Yeast Rice. A new study has shown that this natural remedy decreases the risk of "major coronary events" (ie. heart attacks) by 50%!
The authors stated that "The decrease in these events found in the present study appears to exceed those reported with statin monotherapy in a similar trial of Western patients enrolled in the Cholesterol and Recurrent Events and other statin trials." In other words, Chinese Red Yeast Rice works better than the statins. High dose, purified fish oil (available in my store) also works better than statins.
If you are at risk for heart disease, talk to your holistic doctor about using fish oil and red yeast rice--it could save your life!
