Nutri Lifescience Offers New Bergamonte Product

Sep 01, 2014 03:05AM

Nutri Lifescience, a leading maker of premium and natural nutritional products  in Bradenton, has launched Bergamonte to support cardiovascular and endocrine health, plus improve blood glucose management. The new product taps into the beneficial properties of the juice and albedo of the bergamot citrus plant, which contains healthful flavonoids and glycosides and grows almost exclusively in the Calabria region of Italy.


A 2013 study in the International Journal of Cardiology found that the bergamot polyphenolic extract, when taken with the popular cholesterol-lowering rosuvastatin, enhanced the potency of the statin therapy. For a 30-day period, 77 patients with elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides were assembled into separate groups that either received a placebo, rosuvastatin, Bergamonte extract alone or Bergamonte extract plus rosuvastatin.


Among other positive results, the researchers found that doses of rosuvastatin and Bergamonte together reduced total cholesterol, LDL-C, the LDL-C/HDL-C (high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) ratio and urinary mevalonate in patients that had concerning levels of blood fats, compared to the control group. Those, who took Bergamonte extract alone, showed considerably better results, compared to those treated with rovustatin alone, in terms of improving HDL-C and reducing triglycerides.


“Bergamot juice was traditionally recognized by the local population as a remedy for supporting healthy cholesterol level and cardiovascular health,” says Nutri Lifescience. “The medicinal use of bergamot, forgotten for decades, is now being rediscovered through the work of Italian research universities and collaborating institutions.”


Bergamonte is available in capsule form via order online. We invite health and wellness centers, healthcare practitioners and retailers to be part of this product. For more information or to order, visit
