 LipiControl -- 180 Vegetarian Capsules by Vitamin Research Products or Complementary Prescriptions
(same exact company and product - different label)
Reprinted by permission from Vitamin Research Products/Complementary Prescriptions

Heart health remains a primary concern for many people and effective, natural products exist to promote heart health.  Designed for those who want help maintaining healthful levels of fats and sterols in the blood, LipiControl is a powerful and effective combination of herbs and vitamins that have been shown to support and manage healthy lipid levels, vascular (blood vessel) function and circulation.  LipiControl combines the non-flush form of niacin (inositol hexanicotinate - vitamin B3) with balanced amounts of gamma oryzanol, beta-sitosterol, red yeast and guggulipid, standardized to 10 percent guggulsterones (a compound found in guggul gum believed to exert influence on cholesterol).  It would be prudent for individuals who take LipiControl to consider supplementing with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), another supplement well-documented for heart health, in addition to practicing good dietary choices.

Question:
Dear Dr. Dean: I've been taking LipiControl for the past 2 months. My Dr. is happy with the results; however he is concerned that LipiControl contains lovastatin from the red yeast rice extract.  He feels lovastatin is more dangerous than atorvastatin as used in Lipitor which he normally prescribes for high cholesterol.  LipiControls Supplement Facts shows 350mg of Red Yeast Rice Extract (0.4% lovastatin) per cap. Does this mean that the lovastatin amount is 1.2mg (0.4% of 350mg)?  I would truly appreciate your thoughts on this matter. Thank you, Yours truly, BP

Answer:
Dear Mr. Palmeira, I believe your physician is not well informed about Red Yeast Rice Extract in general and LipiControl in particular.  I have used both products (Red Yeast Rice Extract and LipiControl) in patients who had adverse effects from pharmaceutical statin drugs like Lipitor, Zocor, etc.  The adverse effects from the drugs were primarily fatigue muscle cramps and elevated liver enzymes.  These effects were resolved in almost every case when the patients were switched to LipiControl or Red Yeast Rice Extract with similar support in lipid profile.  Many physicians have reported to me that they have had similar experiences with their own patients.  Your math is correct.  Six capsules provide 7.2 mg of lovastatin.  The recommended daily dose of pharmaceutical lovastatin ranges from 10 to 80 mg.  Although the dosage of lovastatin in LipiControl is slightly below the lowest pharmaceutical dose, LipiControl does not rely entirely on Red Yeast Rice Extract for its lipid optimizing effects but combines it with other natural lipid-supported substances.  We believe that it is this synergystic combination that results in LipiControl's unparalleled effectiveness and high degree of safety and freedom from adverse effects.  I think your physician may come to appreciate this himself as he continues to monitor your progress. Ward Dean, M.D.

Product Cautions:  Red Yeast may cause muscle cramps, weakness and fatigue.  These symptoms are likely due to the extract's inhibition of CoQ10 activity, and may be relieved by increasing the dosage of CoQ10.  Red Yeast extract may also cause significant elevations in liver enzymes in approximately 1% of those who take it.  Red Yeast extract should not be taken by those with a history of liver disease unless under the supervision of a health care professional.  We suggest that the liver enzymes be monitored periodically.


Question:
Dear Dr. Dean:  I would like my mother to take Lipicontrol.  She just stopped taking Lipitor which she was on for a short period of time.  Is it ok to take Lipicontrol since she just recently stopped taking Lipitor.  If the doctor puts her back on Lipitor is it still ok to take Lipicontrol at the same time???  Are there any contraindications that you know of from taking both??  Thank you Lynn

Answer:
Dear Lynn, I would not recommend taking them both at the same time.  The reason is that the statin component of LipiControl (Red Yeast Rice Extract) acts in a similar fashion to Lipitor.  Lipitor may adversely effect liver function.  Consequently, I wouldn't add the two together.  In addition, you might consider slowly adding in Vitamin B3 (Niacin).  Just start with a low dose to prevent flushing and increase the dose slowly. Ward Dean, M.D.


Question:
Dear Dr. Dean, I have been on Lipitor for about 3 years now and Im slowly experiencing more and more side effects.  I was wondering if your LipiControl has any side effects?  Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Pat T.

Answer:
Dear Pat, One of the active ingredients in LipiControl is Red Yeast Rice Extract similar to the active ingredient in Lipitor.  Consequently, LipiControl may have similar side effects (muscle cramps fatigue) as Lipitor in some people.  Because Lipitor inhibits Coenzyme Q10, many people on these drugs (Zocor, MevaCor) obtain partial to complete relief by taking additional CoQ10 (150 to 300 mg).  These side effects (while a theoretical possibility) have not been a problem with LipiControl, however. Perhaps it is because of the natural form of this substance or because of the lack of added excipients and fillers that are in the pharmaceutical drugs or because the red yeast rice extract is only one component of this highly effective formula.
