Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Health:
Polyphenols, especially flavonoids like the ones found in bergamot, are thought to help reduce cholesterol levels. For example, a review of studies showed that the flavonoids found in bergamot can increase good HDL levels and reduce triglyceride levels in the liver.
Citrus bergamot lowers anti-inflammatory activity in the liver by increasing specific anti-inflammatory agents.
The antioxidants in bergamot have an effect on scavenging the free radicals caused by oxidative stress. They do this by absorbing and neutralizing the free radical.
Some research has shown that bergamot can help with any of the risk factors of metabolic syndrome (those are abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, low HDL, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar). The polyphenols in Citrus Bergamot can also increase a protein that helps prevent the accumulation of fat
