Initially, companies started offering statin based red yeast rice for statin therapy, which in turn left patients at a high risk of cardiac arrests. The sole reason for this effect was the toxicity of statin based red yeast rice for therapy. Today, companies are offering statin-free red yeast rice with no side effects. Companies use laboratory equipment to test therapeutic red yeast rice for the presence of alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase, which cause liver damage.
