What is Citrus Bergamot?

Bergamot is a citrus plant that originated as a cross between the bitter orange and other citrus plants and was first described in the 17th century. Since that time, bergamot has been cultivated in Italy, mainly on the coast of Calabria. The extracts obtained from the plant give Earl Grey tea its characteristic aroma, and the essential oils of bergamot are used in perfumery and aromatherapy. What was unclear for a long time is that bergamot is very rich in polyphenols. These, just like the essential oils of bergamot, have a variety of health benefits and, in addition, according to studies, also have pronounced antioxidant properties (4).

How can Citrus Bergamot improve cardiovascular health?

Citrus Bergamot is an active ingredient that was able to improve cholesterol and blood lipid levels in subjects in a study. Elevated levels in these areas represent two of the primary risk factors for cardiovascular disease (5). These risk factors are becoming increasingly important in today's world and affect not only people who do not exercise enough, but also athletes who have unhealthy dietary habits (6). High levels of harmful LDL cholesterol promote deposits in blood vessels that can lead to narrowing or occlusion, and thus are the primary trigger for a heart attack. Healthy HDL cholesterol counteracts such deposits by promoting the removal of LDL cholesterol. Scientific studies have shown that Citrus Bergamot was able to significantly reduce harmful LDL cholesterol levels. At the same time, it was able to significantly increase levels of healthy HDL cholesterol (1,3, 8). In addition to this, a significant reduction in blood triglyceride levels was also observed. In contrast to statins, which are used in the medical field as cholesterol-lowering agents, Citrus Bergamot does not inhibit the body's own production of coenzyme Q10 (9). Another benefit that has been associated in studies with the intake of Citrus Bergamot is its property as an antioxidant that can counteract oxidation of LDL cholesterol (4). This is of particular interest because oxidized LDL cholesterol can contribute to plaque formation in the blood vessels (i.e., calcification of the veins) to a much greater extent than intact LDL cholesterol (1,3).

Other effects of Citrus Bergamot proven in studies

Citrus Bergamot has been associated with helping to keep blood vessels healthy (10). Chronic systemic inflammation is widespread and has been associated with an increased risk of many diseases, including cardiovascular disease (11). Particularly critical in this regard, is the inner lining of the veins known as the endothelium, which is directly involved in vein dilation , blood pressure regulation, blood clotting, and many other important processes. In volunteers, Citrus Bergamot was shown to reduce inflammation and plaque formation and improve elasticity and responsiveness of the veins. This is due in part to its pronounced anti-inflammatory properties, which result from a reduction in levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (3, 12, 13). In addition to this, Citrus Bergamot has been shown to protect the cells of the endothelium from free radical damage through its antioxidant properties, which has also been shown to promote endothelial and consequently vascular health (4, 14). Another effect of bergamot is related to insulin sensitivity. Scientific studies have shown that citrus bergamot can improve insulin sensitivity via activation of AMPK, resulting in a significant reduction in blood glucose levels (10,15).

Citrus Bergamot is a supplement that could really come up with numerous positive effects in test subjects of various studies. It comes as little surprise that the active ingredient is also becoming increasingly popular in Germany. As always, the effect of the supplement stands and falls with the quality of the ingredients. GN relies, as usual, exclusively on raw materials of the best quality to always be able to guarantee an optimal effect. **Citrus Bergamot by GN Laboratories - because in the end only results count.
