My husband, age 82, had to start on red yeast rice, 7 yrs ago due to the damage prescription statins was having on his liver after 5 weeks. He has had no problems w/his liver since being on NATURE'S PLUS Extended Release RYR which I purchased in a Health Food Store, now on line @ iHerb.com. This RYR is the best on the market. He takes it after dinner. He does drink at least 64 oz of water, with some flavoring added. He, also, takes BLUE BONNET Ubiquinol, 50 mg of CoQ10 for his heart every other day. He does not look his age, but 10 years younger. Try not to worry too much about having a heart attack. The stress will more likely cause you to have one.View Thread
