What Makes Red Yeast Rice with CoQ10?
Red Yeast Rice Benefits
Red Yeast Rice (RYR) is the natural product of rice fermented with Monascus purpureus Went yeast. It naturally contains substances called phytosterols, beta-sitosterol, campesterol and isoflavones.
In clinical studies, Red Yeast Rice along with healthy lifestyle practices lowers cholesterol as effectively as the prescription drug simvastatin.
According to the American Journal of Cardiology, the results of the clinical trials were astonishing:
- Red Yeast Rice showed to reduce LDL cholesterol by 21%
- Red Yeast Rice reduced total cholesterol by 15%
- Red Yeast Rice was tolerated by an amazing 92% of the study’s participants
- Red Yeast Rice reduced the risk of a repeat heart attack by 45% in patients
- Red Yeast Rice lowered triglycerides by an average of 15% to 25%

Mechanism of Action: Monacolin-K
Red Yeast Rice (RYR), a staple of Chinese medicine and a traditional Asian seasoning, is made by fermenting polished rice with various strains of the yeast monascus purpureus.
It contains a naturally occurring statin called monacolin-K.
Monacolin-K effectively lowers cholesterol by acting as an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor- the same mode of action as statin drugs. Bioactive compounds found in RYR complement monacolin-K’s lipid-lowering effects, including unsaturated fats. These act both as cholesterol-lowering and anti-inflammatory agents.
A substantial body of supportive research further indicates that monacolin-K also reduces triglycerides and boosts HDL, thus offering a safer and broader spectrum alternative to taking synthetic prescription statins.
The Importance of Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10)
Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10) belongs to a family of substances called ubiquinones and is a water-insoluble, wax-like substance that is part of the respiratory chain. Co-Q10 is found in each of the 50-75 trillion cells throughout the body, except for mature red blood cells.
- It promotes health at the cellular level, in the cardiovascular system, and the body’s metabolism.
- It serves to revitalize and energize the body’s cells, supports the immune system and contributes to healthy stamina and endurance by fueling the body’s energy production (ATP) cycle.
- It supports cardiovascular health by promoting a healthy heart, helping to maintain normal blood pressure.
- Coenzyme Q10 can be found in spinach, broccoli, nuts, soy, organ and muscle meats, and fish. In the body, it is found in the highest concentration in the cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The liver produces small amounts of CoQ10, and then it is distributed to the rest of the body.
- Coenzyme production within the body involves the same enzymes as cholesterol synthesis. Red Yeast Rice may interfere with the body’s production of coenzyme Q10. For this reason, supplementation is recommended with red yeast rice so the body’s levels of CoQ10 are not affected.
LOVACO10 Red Yeast Rice contains 50mg of Co-Q10 (Coenzyme Q10).
Red yeast rice and statins may lower the amount of Co-Q10 in the body. Co-Q10 is very important in heart and muscle health and in energy production. Not having enough Co-Q10 can cause fatigue, muscle aches and pains, and muscle damage.

Interactions and Depletions
1. Cholesterol-lowering Medications
If you take drugs to lower your cholesterol, you should not take red yeast rice unless your doctor tells you to. Red yeast rice may make the effect of these drugs stronger, increasing the risk of liver damage.

Red yeast rice may increase the risk of bleeding. Blood thinners include warfarin (Coumadin), clopidogrel (Plavix), and daily aspirin.
3. Grapefruit Juice
If you take a statin, grapefruit and grapefruit juice can increase the amount of the drug in your blood. That can give you a greater chance of side effects and liver damage. Because red yeast rice may act like statins in the body, you should not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit while taking red yeast rice.
Because it acts like a statin, red yeast rice may pose the same potential risk of liver damage that statins do, when combined with other prescription medications that also affect the liver. Some of these include:
- Azathioprine (Imuran)
- Cime dine (Tagamet)
- Clarithromycin (Biaxin)
- Diclofenac (Voltaren)
- Gem brozil (Lopid)
- Itraconazole (Sporanox)
- Ketoconazole (Nizoral)
- Methotrexate (Rheumatrex)
- Rosiglitazone (Avandia)
- Valproic acid
