Red Yeast Rice is a natural product that's been used in Asian traditional herbal systems for centuries. It is produced by the fermentation of red yeast (Monascus purpureus) with white rice. The Red Yeast Rice in NOW® Red Omega is carefully produced to avoid the presence of citrinin, a sometimes toxic by-product of the fermentation process. This product is further enhanced with the addition of CoQ10 and Omega-3 rich Fish Oil to support healthy cardiovascular function.*

Comments about NOW Foods Red Omega, Softgels, 180 ea:
Cholesterol levels improved without harmful statins. Both my husband and I have greatly benefited from daily use of Red Omega. We used to take separate supplements of omega 3, red yeast rice and COQ10 . This combined supplement makes it simple to take.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
As a dietary supplement, take 2 softgels 2 times daily with food (totaling 4 per day). Consider taking this product in combination with NOW® Sytrinol®, Pantethine and Silymarin (Milk Thistle Extract).
