Ancient Purity present the Citrus Superfood, ground into simple nutritious powder. Believed to be an ancient hybrid of two other species of orange, Bergamot is tart in taste and bright yellow like a lemon. The majority of bergamot oranges are cultivated on the sun-drenched slopes of the hills and mountains of the Calabria region of southern Italy. The word Bergamot is etymologically derived from the Italian word "Bergamotto", ultimately of Turkish origin: bey armudu or bey armut ("lord's pear" or "lord pear") If you’re a tea drinker, you’re without a doubt familiar with Earl Grey. Its distinctive aroma and subtle flavour make it one of the most popular teas in the world. Earl Grey’s characteristic fragrance comes from Bergamot. The essential aromatic oil in Bergamot peel is also used in perfumes and prized in aromatherapy for its ability to reduce anxiety. This 100% natural ground Bergamot is bio-available, mixes well and tastes great.

Now there is compelling research on this relatively rare citrus fruit notably Bergamot polyphenols. Polyphenols are natural compounds best known for their antioxidant effects. The benefits of red wine, tea, berries, cocoa, and other “superfoods” are due in large part to their high content of polyphenols, which might help to protect against heart issues, bone loss, blood glucose issues, and other degenerative health conditions. It turns out that Bergamot fruit (as opposed to the peel used in Earl Grey tea) contains exceptionally large amounts of several unique polyphenols. It can positively affect triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, protective HDL cholesterol, blood sugar, and overall arterial function and cardiovascular health. Bergamot mixes great into smoothies, desserts, or simple citrus drinks or a healthy lemonade.

Bergamot Orange - The Citrus Super Fruit That Zings with Health

Bergamot and Cholesterol... Much research has been conducted on Bergamots effect on Cholesterol. Fox News actually has a good article on all its research in that area, you can read it below. Fox News article on Bergamot’s effect on Cholesterol.

Bergamot lowers LDL cholesterol almost as effectively as the wildly popular cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, but it also raises HDL cholesterol—something statins cannot do. This is important because unlike LDL, which builds up in the plaque deposited in unhealthy arteries, HDL escorts cholesterol out of the arteries to the liver. Therefore, a low HDL level is an independent risk factor for heart issues. In a placebo-controlled clinical trial, Italian researchers gave either 500 mg or 1,000 mg of bergamot extract daily to study volunteers with high cholesterol levels. After one month, average LDL cholesterol in the two groups fell by 24 and 36%, respectively, HDL cholesterol increased by 22 and 40%, and triglycerides—another cardiovascular risk factor—declined by 30 and 39%. These are impressive results for any intervention, let alone a nutritional supplement. As you can see this Citrus Superfruit has a lot to give, it's easy to use and tastes amazing!

Healthy Arteries... Lipid levels are just one aspect of cardiovascular health. Bergamot polyphenols are also very potent antioxidants that protect against free radical damage in tissues throughout the body, including the all-important vascular endothelium. The condition and function of the endothelium, the thin layer of cells lining the blood vessels, is perhaps the most important determinant of cardiovascular health, as it is intimately involved in vasoconstriction/dilation and thus blood pressure, inflammation, blood clotting, and the formation of new blood vessels. Polyphenol-rich bergamot extract has been demonstrated to suppress inflammation, inhibit plaque formation, and improve arterial responsiveness. So Bergamot is most certainly a supportive fruit for heart health, please do your research and enjoy this superfruit.

Bergamot and a collection of heart issue risk factors... Bergamot is also a safe and effective heart issue risk factors fighter. It ameliorates multiple aspects of this condition that affects millions of people and is a precursor to diabetes type 2. That’s because, in addition to its positive effects on cardiovascular risk factors, Bergamot also initiates AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). AMPK is a central regulator of energy and is thus involved in glucose and fatty acid metabolism. Turning on AMPK improves insulin sensitivity, promotes glucose uptake in cells, and suppresses the synthesis of glucose in the liver, thereby lowering blood sugar. It also stimulates the burning of free fatty acids and facilitates weight control. In clinical trials, 500–1,000 mg of Bergamot per day lowered blood sugar by about 22%. Furthermore, some patients who have been using Bergamot report that it has also helped them lose weight. Support this with the all-time obvious of eat organic and exercise.

Bergamot and CoQ10

Cholesterol reduction of this magnitude is usually possible only by blocking HMG-CoA reductase, an enzyme involved in cholesterol production in the liver and in the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a crucial antioxidant and an essential player in the generation of cellular energy.

That’s how Lipitor, Zocor, and other statin drugs work, and why they have so many adverse effects.

Yes, they lower cholesterol, but by reducing CoQ10 levels, they literally drain the body’s “batteries” and antioxidant reserves. The FDA now requires manufacturers of statin drugs to warn patients about the many possible negative side effects.

Two polyphenols abundant in Bergamot, bruteridine and melitidine, also target this same pathway but at a different level and in a gentler manner, so CoQ10 synthesis is not affected and statin-like side effects are avoided. Studies show no reduction in CoQ10 levels in animals that were given Bergamot, and patients who had previously been on statin drugs but discontinued them due to side effects tolerated Bergamot well.

Bergamot has other mechanisms of action that contribute to its lipid-lowering effects. It reduces triglyceride accumulation in the liver, a problem common in obese people, and it binds cholesterol to bile acids, which increases its excretion in the intestinal tract.

Bergamot Orange Powder... Closing Thoughts

Bergamot Orange is a plant that produces a type of citrus fruit. Oil from the peel of the fruit, and extract from the fruit juice, are used to make medicine. Common throughout the Mediterranean, the fruit is the size of an orange, yet similar in colour to a lime, or even yellowish, depending on the ripeness. Like other citrus fruits, Bergamot Orange has a distinctive, heady fragrance and flavour. Today, Bergamot flavouring is used widely in food, drinks (like Earl Grey) and for scenting perfumes. 

Bergamot Orange Powder has various health benefits. Several studies have shown that Bergamot Orange Powder might aid reducing overall cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol. The fresh fruit powder may also help to increase “good” HDL cholesterol and has the potential to be an effective supplement to cholesterol medicines. It is reported that Bergamot Orange supports joint health as well. However, more research is needed.
