"I take 1.2grams of Red Yeast Rice twice daily as recommended by my doctor and taking one pill is so much easier than taking two each time. Based on a recient publication, not from Vitacost, ingredients in this product is as claimed, which means you get what is on the lable. I have had good results since taking it."

buy 600mg capsules
 September 22, 2008
"I bought these thinking they would be same quality as the
600 mg NSI capsules. They have a bad odor and the 600mg
capsules had no odor. Since this larger size is not cheaper
I would strongly recommend buying the NSI 600 mg capsules
which I rated 5 stars.
