If you struggle with high cholesterol or cardiovascular disease, you may want to try citrus bergamia. Bergamot is a citrus fruit that grows in southern Italy and has been used for medicinal and commercial purposes.
The phytochemicals (plant chemicals) in bergamot have been shown to help bring total cholesterol levels to healthy ranges by lowering LDL (bad) and increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. Citrus bergamia has been shown in clinical research to bring down triglyceride levels, one of the main factors in developing heart disease.
Citrus bergamia contains high amounts of polyphenols, including melitidin and bruteridin, which are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory plant compounds. Jarrow Formula’s Citrus Bergamot 500 mg are made from extract from the fruit of citrus bergamia.
