Since red yeast rice can contain monacolin constituents, red yeast has the potential to cause elevated liver
enzymes and myopathy.
Theoretically, red yeast might lower coenzyme Q-10 levels. It is suggested to take 50-100 mg of coenzyme Q-
10 with this product. Avoid consuming grapefruit products, as they might increase the serum levels of
monacolins in people who take red yeast. Taking red yeast with other hepatotoxic herbs and supplements
might increase the risk of liver damage.Beni Koji RYR
