The Story behind Red Yeast Rice. Nature’s Sunshine launched Hongqu, a red yeast rice product in the summer of 1998 and reintroduced it in 2004 as Red Yeast Rice. But to get the full story, you have to go back much further… For more than 1,000 years, red yeast rice has been used in China in both Traditional Medicine and Asian cuisine. Monascus purpureus is combined with rice and fermented. Then extracts are taken from the bright red rice to create a supplement rich in nutrients that may naturally help slow the liver’s normal ability to produce cholesterol. Red yeast rice supports the body’s ability to maintain normal-range cholesterol levels. It has also been used for flavoring, coloring and preserving food.
