Cholesterol and Metabolic Support

A natural extract from a miracle Italian fruit Citrus Bergamot

BergaMet - What is it, and how does it work?

BergaMet (Bergamot) is a citrus fruit endemic to the Calabrian region in Southern Italy. In fact this region accounts for 80% of the worldwide production. Bergamot was known through traditional use of the fruit in Calabrian regions for decades as having beneficial effect in counteracting the excess fat in patients with arthlerosclerosis vascular disease (hardening of the arteries). Bergamot differs from other citrus fruits not only because of the composition of its antioxidant flavonoids, but because of their particularly high content. Flavonoids polyphenols such as Naringin and Neohesperin show the ability to correct many of the metabolic disturbances linked to insulin resistance, and present a promising approach to Metabolic Syndrome. These flavonoids also, possess a structure similar to the pharmaceutical statins and exhibit statin like properties without side effects

In recent clinical trials conducted at the University of Rome, it clearly shows dramatic results in patients where total cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), triglycerides and blood glucose were all significantly lowered while HDL (good cholesterol) was increased. BergaMet was also shown to support healthy weight loss through improved metabolism. Remarkably in human trials to date BergaMet has done this with no significant side effects.

Dr Mollace

Lead researcher in the groundbreaking Bergamot findings “My years of work as a doctor and researcher have culminated in the discovery of this life changing miracle. I could never have imagined we would discover a natural way to effectively control cholesterol. We also saw a startling decrease of up to 38% in triglyceride levels. Natural alternatives to statins, such as Phytosterols, and other forms of citrus,Red yeast rice and policosanol, all fall Short of Bergamot because they don’t address HDL or blood glucose. Increasing HDL to healthy levels Reduces the risk of heart attack.

What is Metabolic Syndrome?

It is not a disease, it is a set of health risk factors

Total Chol > 4.0
High LDL > 2.0 mmol/l
High triglycerides > 1.5 mmol/l
Low HDL < 1.0 mmol/l
High blood pressure > 130/85 mm Hg
Excessive abdominal fat > 95 cms Men and Women > 80 cms
Blood sugar > 6.0 mmol/l

Metabolic syndrome is a combination of symptoms that can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, and people with it are known to be insulin resistant. Insulin doesn’t work as well in people with metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance is closely linked to having excess abdominal fat. BergaMet (Bergamot) reduces blood glucose levels and has shown to be effective in weight loss.

Results of clinical trials

•   Reduces total cholesterol by up to 31%
•   Reduces LDL by up to 39%
•   Reduces triglycerides by up to 38%
•   Increase HDL by up to 42%
•   Reduces blood glucose by up to 22%

Clinical trials have shown that BergaMet lowers the risk of metabolic syndrome
