9. Buy some red yeast rice
A popular Chinese remedy, red yeast rice is fermented in monascus purpureus that stops cholesterol from synthesizing. The average dose is a daily supplement of up to 2400mg, and a range of early studies have shown participants benefiting from as much a 26% drop of LDL cholesterol in just two months. You can buy red yeast rice at some pharmacies, and it is typically carried by health food stores. However, it should not be taken by people who have been prescribed statins, certain antidepressants and antifungal medications.
