I know that Red Yeast Rice is the common method to control cholesterol while on cycle and post cycle, however how about statins? Providing you control your intake of cholesterol you can prevent your body from producing the cholesterol due to the way the drugs work?

I say this as RYR comes with it own draw backs and a few concerns of safety. Both statins and RYR are liver toxic. In the UK at least its not to hard to get statins OTC because of the law here.

Anyone know of any reason why use of a real statin should be avoid, beside the liver stress aspect?
