Natureâs Sunshine is very proud to introduce our latest product, Bergamot Cholesterol Care, which contains an extract of Bergamot, formulated to help lower total cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar levels.
Our naturopaths here at Natureâs Sunshine often get asked for advice and product recommendations for assistance in helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Many individuals are unable to take pharmaceutical cholesterol lowering drugs due to side effects or contraindications, others are just looking for a natural way to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Fortunately recent clinical studies have found that an extract from Bergamot (Citrus aurantium) fruit juice may assist in the maintenance of healthy cholesterol levels, and improve the LDL:HDL cholesterol ratio in healthy individuals. Additionally it was also found that it may assist in the maintenance of healthy triglycerides and blood sugar levels.
Bergamot is a citrus fruit about the size of a small orange native to the Calabrian region in Southern Italy. The active compounds in bergamot juice are antioxidant flavonoids. Particular flavonoids have different biological actions attributed to them. Specifically melitidine and brutieridine, that exist only in the citrus bergamot, and are believed to be responsible for helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.
