A recent study in the Journal of Medicinal Food finds that red yeast rice can significantly slow the growth of prostate cancer cells (1).
The early stages of prostate cancer are typically androgen dependent—meaning that they need male hormones to grow. But, cholesterol is needed to produce the sex hormones that fuel the growth of certain cancers.
The authors say that by affecting cholesterol, red yeast rice can reduce androgen production in prostate cancer cells. This may not only halt cancer cell growth, but also help prevent early, androgen-dependent prostate cancers from progressing to the more advanced and harder-to-treat androgen-independent cancers.
“Our current study proves that red yeast rice is protective against androgen-independent, as well as androgen-dependent prostate cancers,” says lead study author, PhD, an assistant professor at the School of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences at San Diego State University. “Therefore, the use of red yeast rice would be a novel approach to treat advanced androgen-independent prostate cancer in order to reduce overall prostate cancer mortality”(2).
