Herbs of Gold Bergamot Cholesterol Care contains Bergamot extract, which is derived from a specific citrus fruit that looks a large rough-skinned lime. Citrus flavonoids have been researched for decades now, and are well known for their roles as natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents. Research also suggets that they have roles to play in preventing the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is a contributor to atheroscelrotic plaque build up1,2.
More specific research is indicating the Citrus bergamia (Bergamot) are able to reduce LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as decrease waist circumferance3. The researchers believed that the results were due to the particularly rich content of bioflavonoids, such as rutin, neohesperidin, neoeriocitrin and naringin. Bergamot is also known to reduce HMG-CoA reductase activity, which is an enzyme found in the liver, responsible for cholesterol synthesis. As HMG-CoA Reductase is also required for the synthesis of Coenzyme Q10, co-supplementationwith this would be ideal.
Herbs of Gold Bergamot Cholesterol Care also contains 3,000mg of Globe artichoke leaf extract per tablet. Globe Artichoke has long been prescribed as a part of Western Herbal Medicine practices, with traditional and scientific evidence pointing towards actions including antioxidant, liver-protective, bile-enhancing and hypoglycemic4. A clinical trial specifically conducted to assess Globe Artichoke's impact on blood lipids indicated that these natural plant extracts can boost HDL cholesterol, and reduce LDL levels5.

Regulating cholesterol levels, the balance of HDL and LDL cholesterol, as well as triglyceride levels and hepatic cholesterol synthesis, are all important factors in determining long-term cardiovascular wellness.
