Reducing cholesterol naturally is not only doable—it’s the only approach I use with patients at my clinics. And one of the best natural options is red yeast rice (RYR).

For over a decade, I’ve recommended RYR with success for many of my patients, and dozens of clinical studies confirm its effectiveness and safety.

One landmark clinical trial of participants who took red yeast rice extract daily (1,200 mg) produced compelling results after just 8 weeks with total cholesterol down 23% and harmful LDL cholesterol down an amazing 31%.*

And best of all, 93% of study participants experienced improved results. This last statistic is incredible because very few studies show this high of an effectiveness rate.

9 Out of 10 People Improved Their Cholesterol with Red Yeast Rice!

Results like the study above and many others caused a flood of RYR supplements to enter the market. Companies came out of the woodwork to sell their version of this cholesterol-reducing wonder and unfortunately, quality control was not always a priority.

As a result, it’s hard to avoid buying an inferior red yeast rice supplement that won’t get you the results you want—some will barely move the needle at all. Worse yet, some may have annoying or even harmful side effects. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great ones out there that are safe and effective.

Please keep reading, because I’m going to teach you how to identify high-quality red yeast rice supplements, the dosage you need and how to get the natural cholesterol-lowering results you are looking for.

You Can Reduce Your Cholesterol Naturally, Safely and Quickly

Durable HEART

Hello, I’m Dr. Kevin Passero.

In over 20 years of seeing patients at my clinics in the Washington, DC area, I’ve helped thousands of my patients achieve their health goals and improve their lives by focusing on natural solutions.

Since healthy cholesterol is an important goal for all of us, I made it my mission to research and understand the best natural options available.

The latest scientific evidence and clinical data continues to prove the extraordinary power of red yeast rice extract.

For example, a 2022 analysis of 30 high-quality clinical trials confirms its ability to lower cholesterol safely, while also providing excellent support for a variety of other cardiovascular risk factors.*

Red Yeast Rice Promotes Cardiovascular Health in Multiple Ways

Red yeast rice is made by fermenting white rice with a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus. As a result of the fermentation process, the rice turns bright reddish purple.

RYR reduces cholesterol and lipids by upregulating receptors involved in cholesterol metabolism, enhancing enzymes involved in fat breakdown, and helping prevent cholesterol production and accumulation in the liver and other areas.*

In addition to lowering harmful LDL cholesterol, red yeast rice’s vast array of potent plant sterols, flavonoids, isoflavones, polyphenols and other phytonutrients work synergistically to support superior overall cardiovascular health including:

✔ Blood sugar metabolism. Studies have shown reductions in fasting blood sugar with the daily intake of red yeast rice extract.*

✔ Healthy blood pressure. A 2019 systematic review of clinical studies confirms this and it is further validated by a 2021 multicenter Japanese study.*

✔ Artery health. It reduces c-reactive protein (CRP)—another substance produced by the liver that scientists now say is as risky as cholesterol for your arteries.**

RYR comes through like a champ in study after study. So, you can see why I can confidently recommend red yeast rice extract for so many of my patients. But one study from an Ivy League medical school is particularly noteworthy.*

It’s why I developed my “5 Rules” for choosing a red yeast rice extract.

Because, as you are about to see, clearly all red yeast rice supplements are NOT the same.

Ivy League Study Reveals an Eye-Opening “Quality Gap”

Researchers purchased 26 red yeast rice supplements from four major U.S. retail chains (Whole Foods, Walmart, GNC and Walgreens) and measured levels of the core active ingredient.

Forget what the label said, among the 26 popular brands, the true active content varied 60-fold from most to least.

That means one brand had just 1/60th of the active ingredient of the strongest brand—virtually none—while the strongest brand contained considerably more than I would recommend!

That is just one of the reasons I’m extremely picky about what red yeast rice supplement I recommend for my patients.

When Choosing a Red Yeast Rice Supplement
The Answer to All Five of These Questions Must be “YES”

This quick “test” is based on the successful cholesterol regimen utilizing red yeast rice that I developed for my patients, and it will help you choose an effective and safe red yeast rice supplement:

1. Is it a standardized full-spectrum red yeast rice extract?

☐ Yes ☐ No

Many brands “go cheap” by isolating just one type of the main active ingredient and that’s a mistake. Red yeast rice contains 13 active compounds along with plant sterols, polyphenols, isoflavones and phytonutrients that all help control cholesterol while also improving blood sugar and blood pressure as well.

2. Is it 100% organic red yeast rice and certified citrinin-free?

☐ Yes ☐ No

Remember, extracts concentrate ingredients. You want to be sure your choice starts with organic red yeast rice that’s completely free of pesticides and herbicides, and is fermented and extracted without chemicals.

Citrinin is an unwanted by-product of some RYR fermentation processes and is known to be toxic to the kidneys. Be sure your choice is certified citrinin-free through rigorous testing—an important quality-control step that many low-budget producers skip.

3. Does it have the optimal dosage of red yeast rice?

☐ Yes ☐ No

Many RYR supplements provide only a fraction of the 1,200 mg daily research-based serving, but I recommend an extra-strength 1,600 mg daily. I have found that this dose provides the best results for patients in my clinics, and it still falls well within the safety-level guidelines established and confirmed by so many clinical studies.*

4. Does it include a heart strengthening dose of CoQ10?              

☐ Yes ☐ No

CoQ10 is an excellent companion nutrient to RYR that contributes to optimal cardiovascular health in many ways and helps energizer your heart. And since red yeast rice can sometimes deplete CoQ10 levels, it’s vitally important to make sure you are supporting your CoQ10 level when taking red yeast rice.*

5. Is it manufactured in the U.S. and subject to rigorous independent lab testing?

☐ Yes ☐ No

According to one report, RYR extracts are now made in 120 cities in 15 countries in Asia, Europe and North America. That helps explain why quality is so “unpredictable,” as the Ivy League scientists put it. One way to ensure confidence is to seek out a supplement manufactured in the U.S. in an FDA-approved and inspected facility and one that is subject to 3rd-party lab testing to verify purity and potency.*

As the Ivy League study indicates, many companies…

• Are more concerned about profits than potency, purity and effectiveness.
• Don’t want you to realize that quality can vary so dramatically.
• Don’t want you to know there are better red yeast rice extracts available!

Quality matters when buying any supplement —and even more so with red yeast rice.

That’s why I developed the above “5 Rules" Buyer’s Guide.

The #1 Red Yeast Rice Supplement That
I Recommend for My Patients

I’ve seen the benefits of red yeast rice extract over and over again with patients at my clinics, but as you can see from the Ivy League study I mentioned previously, finding an extra strength, organic red yeast rice supplement that was made in the USA was not easy. And the few that I did find were absurdly expensive.

Fortunately, in addition to running my clinics, I also serve as Chief Science Officer for Durable™, a cutting-edge dietary supplement company that I co-founded with my good friend Josh Corn, who has been a leading natural health advocate for over 20 years.

Together we decided to create a convenient and affordable red yeast rice extract that meets every requirement I specified above for safety, purity and potency.

Our formula is called Durable RED YEAST RICE®.

Here are six reasons why I’m confident recommending this premium, cutting-edge supplement to my own patients, my friends and to you as well, to help lower cholesterol and provide additional cardiovascular health support quickly, safely and naturally:

1. Features a Full-Spectrum RYR Extract in an Extra-Strength 1,600 mg Dosage. You get a full spectrum of potent plant sterols, flavonoids, isoflavones, polyphenols and other phytonutrients that work synergistically to improve your lipid profile. And all of this is in a daily serving size (2 capsules per day) of RYR extract that’s at least 33% greater than typical RYR supplements for optimal results.

2. Enhanced with 50 mg of KanekaQ10® CoQ10. This is the highest quality CoQ10 on the market today, identical to the type of CoQ10 your body produces naturally. It provides significant heart-health benefits of its own while neutralizing RYR’s potential effects on CoQ10 levels.

3. 100% Organic Red Yeast Rice and Certified Citrinin-Free. You can be sure there is no pesticide, herbicide or citrinin residue whatsoever. We independently test every batch to make sure its purity and potency is unsurpassed, so that you can take it with complete confidence.

4. Made in the USA to Pharmaceutical-Grade Standards. It’s produced at an FDA-approved and inspected facility here in the USA to deliver the cleanest and purest red yeast rice available.

5. The Absolute Best Value. Typical RYR extracts provide 1,200 mg per daily serving, are not organic and feature no CoQ10. Durable RED YEAST RICE provides 1,600 mg of organic red yeast rice plus 50 mg of KanekaQ10® per serving and yet is still remarkably affordable—as low as $24.95 for a 60-count bottle containing a full month’s supply.

6. Free Shipping and Free Return Shipping. I’m on a mission to help people improve their lives with nutritional supplements using only the best clinically proven ingredients. Durable RED YEAST RICE delivers great results at a great value and it comes with both free shipping and free return shipping if you’re not satisfied.

PLUS: It’s completely risk-free to try because it’s backed by…

Our 365-Day, Any-Reason Full Refund Guarantee

I’m convinced that Durable RED YEAST RICE will help you lower your cholesterol naturally, protect your heart and strengthen your entire cardiovascular system.

As I mentioned earlier, a landmark clinical study showed that 9 out of 10 participants saw improved results with red yeast rice, on average lowering total cholesterol by 23% and reducing dangerous LDL cholesterol by 31%.*

So here’s my invitation to you:

Try it without risking a cent and let your actual lab test scores be the judge!

If you’re not impressed after your next checkup… or if you’re dissatisfied for any reason…
simply return it anytime within one year of purchase for a full refund.

No hassles, no questions asked. We even pay the return shipping.

All I ask is that you take 2 capsules daily, as directed, and give it at least 90 days to produce best results.

Clinical studies with RYR show great results within 8 weeks. But I recommend that my patients take Durable RED YEAST RICE for at least three months to experience the most significant and measurable changes to their health.

So starting with a three-month supply is a great way to save money, especially since you’re protected by our amazing 365-day any-reason guarantee.

Reduce Your Cholesterol Quickly With
 Durable RED YEAST RICE

Don’t take a chance on a red yeast rice extract that may have only a fraction of the purity and potency of Durable RED YEAST RICE.

I’ve seen how effectively the new Durable RED YEAST RICE works with my patients and now it’s your turn.

Put it to the test and experience the difference it can make for you, too.

Just imagine the feeling of relief when you review your next set of lab results with your doctor.
