Helps supports overall cholesterol, cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurological health
Naturally sourced with no known side effects
How does bergamot work, and what areas of health does it address?
Bergamot works by helping reduce levels of lipids (cholesterols and triglycerides) absorbed after meals, as well as reduces internal formation of cholesterol, promoting overall cholesterol,cardiovascular and vascular health. Bergamot also helps glucose enter cells, which can be beneficial for overall metabolic health.
Can people stop taking statins immediately, after starting to take BergaMet?
If you are on a statin, you should never stop this without your doctor’s permission and supervision. If you have been taking statins for any length of time, sudden cessation may lead to a marked rise in cholesterol over the initial levels. This is because statins block the last step in cholesterol production and when these are stopped, there is often an over- reaction of the blocked enzyme system lasting for a 6-8 week period. A natural product , such as BergaMet is not strong enough to overcome this effect initially, and would not be expected to reduce cholesterol for at least a 2-3 months under these circumstances
Are there any known side effects for patients taking BergaMet?
Over 17 clinical trials have shown no significant side effects clearly correlating with the use of BergaMet to date.
When should I expect to see results after starting to take BergaMet?
BergaMet usually helps patients feel healthier and more energetic within a couple of months of regular use. The best time to measure cholesterol is around six months after starting to take BergaMet – usually after any associated weight loss appears to be stable, since active weight loss causes a temporary rise in cholesterol levels.
What is the proper dosage and strength for bergamot supplements?
Based on numerous clinical trials, the minimum effective dosage and strength is 1200mg with a BPF (bergamot polyphenolic fraction) of 40 percent. All BergaMet products meet or exceed these standards – in fact, ours is the only product available to the general public that meets these minimum requirements.
How does BergaMet compare to other natural products such as red yeast rice and policosanol?
Bergamot, the key ingredient in all BergaMet products, is the only natural compound that works simultaneously on cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood glucose.
What qualities does bergamot possess that other citrus fruits do not?
Compared to other species of citrus, bergamot contains high numbers of unique polyphenols (plant chemicals) – antioxidants essential in support of overall mind and body health. Two of these, named Brutelidin and Melitidin, assist in the inhibition of cholesterol biosynthesis and are not found in any other citrus derivatives.
Does BergaMet have any effect on neuroprotection?
Experimental studies have recently revealed that bergamot extract may have a protective effect on brain tissues, due to an increase in blood circulation and vascular health .
Does bergamot have anti-inflammatory qualities?
Recent studies have shown that the antioxidant molecules contained in bergamot may contribute to anti-inflammatory effects and have a positive effect on pain sensitivity.
Does BergaMet help support overall vessel health?
In studies to date, BergaMet appears to have a beneficial effect on both arterial stiffness and endothelial function, the most important measures of vessel health and function. This occurs regardless of any effects on blood cholesterol levels.
How does BergaMet support healthy blood glucose levels?
BergaMet may have a beneficial effect on blood glucose because of its effects on cells’ “energy receptors.” In some patients, these energy receptors are partially “jammed,” and the only way the body knows to respond is by making more insulin. BergaMet acts on this receptor to facilitate opening, thus allowing more sugar to enter the cell. This is most likely also why BergaMet helps support healthy blood pressure and HDL.
How does BergaMet help support healthy weight?
BergaMet works by activating AMPK, which is the metabolic trigger for the breakdown of fat and sugar in the body. AMPK is considered to be a key therapeutic target in support of healthy weight and metabolism.
Does BergaMet have any additional benefits?
In studies to date, BergaMet appears to have a beneficial effect on arterial stiffness and liver function. This has been shown to occur regardless of any effects on blood cholesterol levels.
How does bergamot differ from grapefruit, and does it have any of the side effects that patients experience with grapefruit?
Although bergamot contains one similar polyphenol to that found in grapefruit, grapefruit also has a profound effect on the metabolic pathways within the liver. Thus, grapefruit is responsible for blocking many medications. On the other hand, bergamot does not appear to have the same effect on the metabolic function of the liver, and therefore appears safe to take with most medications.
Is BergaMet a natural supplement?
Yes, BergaMet is a naturally sourced bergamot extract supplement, with no added colors, flavors or preservatives. It is also free of wheat, gluten, fish, egg, dairy, and lactose.’
Is it okay to take BergaMet for patients recovering from cancer treatment?
There are no problems in this regard, and in fact there is some evidence to show some support for BergaMet inpatients with various types of cancer, although this is certainly not a proven benefit as yet.
