Actions Milk Thistle: This plant unblocks obstructions of the liver and spleen; help jaundice; prevents harmful toxins from entering into the cells of the liver. It facilitates the removal of toxins from the liver cells; regenerates injured liver cells; help blocks fibrosis in people with inflamed liver conditions secondary to diseases such as alcohol abuse or hepatitis. It is a powerful antioxidant and is most commonly recommended to counteract the harmful actions of alcohol and chemical toxins on the liver. It can minimize the possible side effect of long-term use of Red Yeast rice extract which may contain the similar structure or functional compounds like the Statin drugs. Salvia root extract (Dan Shen or Red Sage) promotes Blood circulation, stops pain, tranquilizes the mind by nourishing the heart and promotes new tissue regeneration. Because of its positive effect on the circulation, Dan Shen is traditionally used to treat angina pectoris (chest Bi strangulating pain¡in TCM). In recent studies, the active components of Dan Shen have shown an ability to dilate coronary blood vessels and peripheral blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the heart. Hawthorn Berry (Shan Zha or Crataegus) is a very effective herb for the heart and blood vessels. Its actions as a coronary restorative, cardiovascular relaxant and circulatory and systemic resolvent are unequaled, making Shan Zha a valuable adjunct in formulas for coronary deficiency with angina, atherosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, neurocardiac disorders, coronary artery spasm, chest tightness, shortness of breath, palpitations and anxiety. The beneficial effects of Shan Zha in the case of angina are due to improvement in the blood and oxygen supply of the heart, resulting from dilation of the coronary vessels, as well as improvement of the metabolic processes in the heart.

Red yeast rice has been used in China for centuries as both a food and as a medicinal substance. It is made by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus over red rice. In Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is used to promote blood circulation, soothe upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen, a body organ that destroys old blood cells and filters foreign substances. Recently, it has been discovered that red yeast rice contains substances that are similar to prescription medications that lower cholesterol.

Laboratory studies have shown that the Monascus purpureus inhibits the action of a body enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase, known to raise cholesterol which, in turn, increases the risk of heart disease. Because of this inhibitory action, red yeast rice's therapeutic uses include the prevention and treatment of high cholesterol.

Recently, the UCLA School of Medicine conducted a study involving 83 people with high cholesterol levels. Those who received red yeast rice over a 12-week period experienced a significant reduction in total cholesterol, LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and triglycerides (fatty substances that can also accumulate in the blood stream and cause damage to blood vessels) compared to those who received placebo. HDL ("good") cholesterol did not change in either group during the study.

Two studies involving red yeast rice were presented at the American Heart Association's 39th Annual conference in 1999. The first study, involving 187 people with mild to moderate elevations in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol revealed that treatment with red yeast rice reduced total cholesterol by more than 16%, LDL cholesterol by 21%, and triglycerides by 24%. HDL cholesterol also increased by 14%. In the second study, elderly participants who were given red yeast rice experienced significant reductions in total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol compared to those who received placebo. Both studies treated the participants with the supplement or placebo for 8 weeks.

In another 8-week trial involving 446 people with high cholesterol levels, those who received red yeast rice experienced a significant drop in cholesterol levels compared to those who received placebo. Total cholesterol fell by 22.7%, LDL by 31%, and triglycerides by 34% in the red yeast rice group. HDL cholesterol increased by 20% in the red yeast rice group as well.
