Clinical Application of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) for Reducing High Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Disease Markers

Clinical Application of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) for Reducing High Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Disease Markers

I’ve added the highest potency bergamot supplement — Bergamet Pro+ — to my supplement dispensary for cardiovascular health. Bergamet Pro+ contains the extract of the “super fruit,” bergamot, a citrus fruit grown in Southern Italy.

Integrative cardiologists are using Bergamet Pro+ with patients, sometimes as a standalone supplement, other times in conjunction with statins, often enabling them to treat patients with lower doses of statins.

Some medical doctors use Bergamet Pro+ with Arterosil-HP for cardiovascular support and for maintaining healthy arteries. These supplements can be used as part of a comprehensive cardiovascular support program that always includes the foundational components of a heart-healthy diet and regular exercise.

Bergamet Pro+ is clinically proven to assist in:

  • reducing total cholesterol levels
  • improving LDL and HDL cholesterol levels
  • improving triglyceride levels
  • decreasing blood sugar levels
  • removing fatty deposits in the liver
  • addressing metabolic syndrome

Here’s an abstract from a research article that delves into the science behind the power of the bergamot citrus fruit and it’s flavonoid components.

Clinical Application of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) for Reducing High Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Disease Markers — Integrative Food, Nutrition and Metabolism, March 2019

Article Abstract

“The bergamot is a citrus fruit native to southern Italy with traditional uses that include improving immune response and cardiovascular function. There are a variety of phytochemicals that have been found in the bergamot including brutieridin and melitidin as well as other flavonoids, flavones O-glucosides and C-glucosides.

Multiple clinical trials have provided evidence that different forms of orally administered bergamot can reduce total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. In vitro mechanistic studies have provided evidence that polyphenols from the bergamot can alter the function of AMPK and pancreatic cholesterol ester hydrolase (pCEH). The use of bergamot in multiple clinical trials has consistently shown that it is well tolerated in studies ranging from 30 days to 12 weeks.

This mini-review reports on the clinical studies performed with different forms of bergamot along with their effectiveness in reducing total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol in patients with hypercholesterolemia.”
