Red yeast rice can be used to lower cholesterol levels. According to a UCLA study, individuals who consumed red yeast rice supplement for 12 weeks had decreased levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) as well as total cholesterol, while HDL (good cholesterol) remained unchanged.

What actually happens is that the red yeast (also called Monascus purpureus) would restrict the active enzyme that the human body normally uses to produce cholesterol.
