• Helps Maintain Healthy Cholesterol Levels Already Within the Normal Range • Multidimensional Support for Cardiovascular Health • Preserves Arterial Health and Elasticity • Supports Healthy CoQ-10 Levels
Bergamot contains a powerful and unique array of cholesterolbalancing and cardio-protective polyphenolic flavonoids. Established clinical research has demonstrated that bergamot polyphenols help maintain healthy total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) and triglyceride (TRI) levels. Research has also demonstrated that Bergamot provides antioxidant-balancing properties and maintains normal inflammatory balance to help preserve coronary arteries.
Optimizing cardiovascular health is a leading concern for many adults, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, LDL particle size, glucose regulation and inflammatory balance are some of the most important targets of integrative therapies. Numerous clinical trials have shown the specific polyphenols found in Bergamot work at the level of the liver to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within the normal range, metabolic function and preserves coronary arteries by maintaining normal inflammatory balance.
What are Bergamot Polyphenolic Fractions?
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is a citrus plant that grows almost exclusively in the narrow coastal Calabria region in southern Italy. The local population quickly discovered bergamot juice could be used to help support healthy cholesterol levels and optimize cardiovascular wellness.
Bergamot’s health benefits derive from its unique profile of phenolic compounds such as, neoeriocitrin, neohesperidin, naringin, rutin, neodesmin, rhoifolin and poncirin. Naringin has been shown to be beneficial in maintaining normal inflammatory balance, while neoeriocitrin and rutin have been found to exhibit a strong capacity to quench free radicals and maintain healthy LDL cholesterol levels. Also, bergamot is rich in brutieridine and melitidine, which have a unique ability to dampen HMG-CoA reductase.
Using a patented extraction technology through collaborative works of various universities and research institutions, Bergamot BPF contains Bergamonte®, BPF/Bergamot Polyphenolic Fraction (by H&AD), the highest concentration available of these potent phenolic compounds. Clinical trials quoted were conducted on BPF.
