Benefits of Bergamot – Cardiovascular Health

begamont

Bergamot BPF contains a powerful and unique array of cholesterol-balancing and cardio-protective polyphenolic flavonoids.  Emerging clinical research has demonstrated that BPF help maintain healthy total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein, very low density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels.  Research has also demonstrated that BPF provides antioxidant and inflammatory-balancing properties to help preserve coronary arteries.

 

OVERVIEW:

Optimizing cardiovascular health is a leading concern for many adults, and maintaining balanced cholesterol levels are an important part of that process.  Though cholesterol can be consumed through food, circulating cholesterol levels are primarily produced and controlled by the liver using the rate control enzyme, HMG-CoA reductase.  Because of its pronounced role in cholesterol synthesis, inhibiting HMGCR has become a primary target of many traditional therapies.  Numerous clinical trials have shown the specific BPF found in Bergamot BPF works at the level of the liver to help maintain and support healthy cholesterol levels and preserve coronary arteries by maintaining inflammatory balance.

Bergamot is a citrus plant that grows almost exclusively in the narrow coastal Calabria region in southern Italy.   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 inflammatory balance in arteries, while neoeriocitrin and ruin 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.
