Can This Fruit Really Help Balance Cholesterol in 30 Days?
I don’t know about you, but my cholesterol levels are constantly on my mind.
And when I get bloodwork done, I’m always keeping my fingers crossed that my numbers don’t get me in trouble with my doctor, with him insisting I finally trust his “solution” for keeping my cholesterol in check.
This is why I’m always looking for a “secret weapon” that can keep my cholesterol levels in the healthy range, even if my diet isn’t always perfect. And this is why I was so happy to come across the research conducted by scientists over in Italy.
As reported, jaws dropped as 15 of Italy’s most renowned researchers met to analyze the results of their breakthrough four-week study.
They were testing a unique Italian citrus extract for its effects on cholesterol levels in humans.
And while they were all excited to review their results, NO ONE expected an incredible 29% drop in total cholesterol after just four weeks.
Is This the Cholesterol Breakthrough We’ve Been Looking For?
At first glance they thought it might be a mistake, but then researchers right here in the U.S. saw even better results with a 35% drop in total cholesterol, also after just four weeks.
No other natural extract on the planet had ever produced results like these. In addition to the 29% drop in total cholesterol, the Italian study showed:
- Dangerous LDL cholesterol levels dropped 36%
- Triglycerides fell by a whopping 41%
- Beneficial HDL cholesterol increased by 40%
And the only “side effect” was that blood sugar levels decreased by 25%, which is incredibly positive since half of U.S. adults risk health problems related to elevated blood sugar.
Every heart health data point they analyzed was not only a positive — it was jaw-dropping amazing!
Please keep reading, because you deserve to know about this incredibly effective, cutting-edge way to combat the dangerous threats to your heart and entire cardiovascular system.
The Data is Shocking and Irrefutable: Heart Issues Are the Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.
For both men and women, heart issues are the #1 cause of death in the U.S. claiming well over half a million lives each year — that’s 1 out of every 4 deaths. That’s roughly the death toll if 5 commercial planes crashed every day for an entire year! Could you imagine the news coverage that would get?
There are several factors that contribute to this terrifying epidemic, and, cholesterol, triglycerides and unchecked blood sugar levels are three of the biggest reasons.
More than 100 million Americans have elevated cholesterol, and 35 million of them have extremely high cholesterol.
And more than 25% of American adults have high triglyceride levels, which are the fatty particles your body makes out of excess sugar and calories.
Together, it’s like pouring a mixture of fats down your sink drain — eventually they clog up the pipes and cause all sorts of problems. Especially when it comes to your heart and brain.
And over time, too much sugar in your bloodstream can damage your arteries, making them rigid and less flexible. And when you combine that with excess fats gunking up your arteries, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The Bergamot Paradox That’s Changing The Playbook for Maintaining a Healthy Heart
The health benefits of the “Italian Secret” I mentioned earlier are so powerful and so pronounced, it’s one of only a very few natural substances that have been granted a U.S. patent as a natural cholesterol remedy. (Patent #20110223271.)
Discovered in the Calabria region of Italy, the cholesterol-lowering impacts of the bergamot orange were first observed in the residents of this small southern region. Researchers found that despite eating a high-fat diet, there was something startling about these people: They were almost always able to maintain a healthy cholesterol balance.
According to scientists at the University of Bologna in Italy, when the juices of this remarkable citrus plant were extracted and tested, the antioxidants and polyphenols exhibited simply extraordinary cardiovascular benefits.
The Cholesterol and Heart Health Benefits Will Blow You (And Your Doctor) Away
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study (science’s gold standard), researchers split participants into two groups. One group received a placebo, and the other group was given 500 mg of bergamot extract daily for 30 days.
They tested the cholesterol levels of the patients at the beginning and end of the study, and the difference in the results between the two groups was like night and day.
In the placebo group, there was almost no change:
- Total cholesterol levels improved by just 0.14%
- HDL levels increased by a slim 1.2%
- LDL went down only 1.1%
- Triglycerides improved by a scant 0.10%
- Blood glucose levels dropped by just 0.5%
But in the bergamot group, there were HUGE improvements:
- Total cholesterol dropped 21%
- LDL cholesterol fell by 24%
- Triglycerides were reduced by 29%
- HDL cholesterol was boosted 22%
- And blood glucose levels fell by 18%
These outstanding results were confirmed in yet another study that increased the dosage of bergamot extract to 1,000 mg daily for 30 days. And guess what? The results got even better:
- LDL cholesterol dropped 36%
- Triglycerides fell by 38%
- HDL cholesterol went up by 40%
- Blood glucose levels tumbled by 25%
In all my years in the natural health world, I’ve never seen anything so promising for natural cholesterol support!
How Bergamot Helps Quickly Clobber Cholesterol
Bergamot extract contains seven powerful antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids and unique glycosides to help quickly clobber cholesterol, support your arteries and boost your entire cardiovascular system.
Here’s how they work:
- Block cholesterol production in your liver. Powerful flavonoid compounds found in bergamot keep cholesterol levels in check by blocking the action of the enzyme in your liver that produces cholesterol — resulting in reduced cholesterol in the cells of the liver.
- Protect your arteries to prevent LDL cholesterol oxidation.Bergamot also contains three unique compounds known as glycosides, which help burn up the especially dangerous oxidized LDL cholesterol that can damage your arteries.
- Cuts blood sugar levels that trigger inflammation inside arteries.In addition to its powerful effects on your cardiovascular system, bergamot also helps lower blood glucose levels. High blood sugar damages your arteries by triggering inflammation.
All in all, Bergamot shows an extraordinary ability to support healthy cholesterol level like no other nutrient on earth that I know of.
The Best Way To Make Bergamot Work For You
Bergamot oranges are a hybrid of citron (lemon) and sour oranges that are simply too tart for most people to eat. And even if you did, it would be nearly impossible to get the therapeutic dose of the 500 mg shown to be so effective in clinical research.
So your only real option to get all of the benefits I’ve described is with an extract in supplement form.
But due to all of the hype that followed the outstanding research results, prices of Bergamot supplements have skyrocketed, with one brand selling for nearly $100 a bottle.
Others keep the price down by skimping, providing far less than the 500 mg research dosage. I found one highly-advertised brand that only had 100 mg! Others use generic extracts with no proven value.
The bottom line: Make sure your supplement contains 500 mg of Bergamonte®, the only patented extract from the “one of a kind” Italian bergamot oranges. But still, you shouldn’t be spending more than $25 per bottle. Or even less if you are savvy shopper!
A Superior Cholesterol-Busting Solution
In addition to my work with Live in the Now, I also run Stop Aging Now, a company that has been making premium grade dietary supplements for over 20 years.
After studying the effects of bergamot on cholesterol levels…after reading through pages and pages of clinical studies…and seeing the positive impact it has had on thousands of people just like you and me, I started looking for a bergamot-based supplement to recommend to my readers.
But everything I found that had the right ingredients in the right dosages was outrageously expensive. My fear was that this “secret weapon” was out of reach for a majority of the people who needed it most.
So I set out to work with Stop Aging Now’s Scientific Advisory Board to develop an effective bergamot formula that is both potent and affordable.
It’s called Cholesterol360®. I added “360” to the end of the name because it gives you “complete” coverage for total effective cholesterol support. It’s all you need to take to feel your best and wow your doctor next time you get your bloodwork done.
And for a limited time, Live in the Now readers can get Cholesterol360 for as low as $14.95 a bottle — with free shipping. Click here to take advantage of this special offer.
Why I Personally Recommend Cholesterol360
I invite you to do your own research to make sure I’m not shamelessly promoting my own product. But I think you’ll find no other product quite like Cholesterol360. And certainly none that are both this potent and this affordable.
- 500 mg dose of Bergamonte®: Just one small Cholesterol360 capsule features a potent 500 mg dose of Bergamonte® citrus extract — the very same brand and extract that produced such impressive cholesterol-balancing research results. This allows you to easily control the dosage at 500 mg or 1,000 mg depending on your needs.
- 25 mg of standardized green tea extract: Cholesterol360 is enhanced with 25 mg of standardized green tea extract to provide crucial antioxidant polyphenols. Studies have shown that green tea can help keep LDL cholesterol levels in the healthy range, lower triglycerides, and even help boost “good” HDL cholesterol levels, too.
- 25 mg of standardized grape seed extract: Grape seed is rich in antioxidants like vitamins C and E, as well as beta-carotene. These important antioxidants are included in Cholesterol360 to help snuff out damaging free radicals that can trigger inflammation and lead to LDL cholesterol oxidation. Plus, it’s rich in a group of potent nutrients that have been shown in studies to boost beneficial HDL levels and reduce dangerous LDL levels.
- Quality you can trust: Cholesterol360 is made in Stop Aging Now’s own FDA-inspected facility located in Florida. Unlike some brands whose quality is questionable, this is a product you can trust for purity and potency.
- Affordable and risk free: Cholesterol360 is available for as little as $14.95 per bottle. This is half the price of other supplements with similar ingredients. It also ships to you for free and comes with an amazing 365-day “any reason” guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with the results in any way, I’ll gladly send you a full refund of every penny you paid — no questions asked. That way you can try it risk free.
For a limited time, Live in the Now readers can get Cholesterol360 for as low as $14.95 a bottle — with free shipping. I encourage you to take advantage of this great deal.
