Bergamot extract may lower ‘bad’ cholesterol and reduce your heart disease risk

Bergamot extract may lower ‘bad’ cholesterol and reduce your heart disease risk image


Statins are known for lowering the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, and yet recent news suggests they are being overprescribed and 'do not work' for half of people prescribed them, according to a recent study. [1]

Taking statin medications may make cholesterol levels worse by reducing cholesterol production in the liver, while lowering cholesterol in the blood. It does this by blocking a liver enzyme that helps make cholesterol. Common side effects reported from statin use include headaches, difficulty sleeping, muscle aches, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 2

Cholesterol isn't the problem, however. Your body needs cholesterol to balance hormones, support brain function, and protect arteries from inflammation. Cholesterol hardens when inflammation and oxidation occur, however this can be prevented with anti-inflammatory foods, lifestyle choices and supplements. 3

Citrus Bergamia, otherwise known as Bergamot, is an anti-inflammatory extract that can provide natural support for lowering and managing "bad" cholesterol levels. Taken therapeutically in the Mediterranean as far back as 1750, the extract contains an abundance of nutraceutical compounds.

Containing a high concentration of bergamot flavonoids, these play an important role in reducing extra-high LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels, while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol levels associated with a decreased risk of heart disease. 4

HeartPower45™ - A Natural Heart Health Solution

Using this high-powered form of the Bergamot fruit extract, Robert Redfern, Good Health Naturally founder, Nutritionalist and Author, formulated a Super BERGAVIT Bergamot 45% supplement with a higher bergamot flavonoid concentration as an option to help naturally balance cholesterol without medication.

Super BERGAVIT Bergamot 45% supplies multiple heart-health benefits. Studies indicate that when taken as an encapsulated powder, it can help increase "good" HDL cholesterol and greatly lower high levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol when supplemented for six months daily. The largest reduction may be seen in those with the highest cholesterol. 5

Along with impacting cholesterol, high-potency bergamot flavonoids can support heart health too. Bergamot flavonoids can also regulate metabolism, potentially influencing metabolic syndrome. Patients have used a daily bergamot supplement to improve their metabolic profile; reduce "bad" lipid levels that also include triglycerides, LDL, and total cholesterol; and still enable "good" levels of HDL to rise. 6

"I get a steady stream of emails about heart health concerns, and especially heart medication side effects. The need for cholesterol-lowering drugs is one of the biggest misconceptions I encounter," Redfern explains. "Except for very rare cases, high cholesterol is normally an indicator of an unhealthy lifestyle."

"Making healthier lifestyle choices and choosing effective supplements is a lot easier - and definitely a lot cheaper -- than committing to a lifetime of medication."

Supported by clinical trials to improve CVD risk factors, HeartPower45™ contains a high-potency Super BERGAVIT Bergamot 45% that may benefit your overall cholesterol balance and heart health.
