The details

Commonly found in: Bergamot fruit

Our sourceCitrus bergamia Risso et Poiteau

Amount (The Daily): 100mg of bergamot phytosome 

Supplier: Indena (Italy)

Unique Features: Our product is crafted from bergamot polyphenols extracted from the renowned bergamot trees flourishing in the Calabria region of southern Italy. We meticulously standardize the extract to maintain the same potent polyphenol ratio as found in the natural juice. To enhance absorption, we encapsulate it within a phytosome—a sunflower oil structure akin to a liposome.

Understanding the Benefits

Purpose: Bergamot, a unique Mediterranean citrus fruit, has a rich history in Italian culture for promoting healthy aging. Its exceptional polyphenol content, notably effective in managing cholesterol, blood lipids, and visceral fat accumulation, sets it apart from other citrus fruits.

During menopause, declining estrogen levels can lead to elevated cholesterol, increased visceral fat, and a higher risk of metabolic issues. Clinical studies demonstrate bergamot's ability to support metabolism and maintain healthy blood lipids, making it a valuable ally during this transitional phase.
