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 Polyphenols?
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.
In a placebo-controlled, clinical trial consisting of 77 patients divided into four treatment groups, 1,000 mg of bergamot polyphenols helped maintain healthy levels of all blood lipid markers (HDL, LDL, TC, TRI). Also, this same clinical trial showed that BPF activated the inflammatory-balancing enzyme AKT and reduced malondialdehyde production in neutrophils. Another clinical trial conducted on 80 patients over six months showed 1,500 mg of BPF maintained normal levels of small density LDL and supported normal carotid IMT thickness.2 In a placebo-controlled study involving 238 patients, 1,000 mg of bergamot polyphenols maintained healthy cholesterol levels and outperformed the group receiving the traditional therapy.
