Bergamot is a type of citrus fruit primarily grown in the southern Italian region known as Calabria. It has been used traditionally to benefit a wide variety of human health functions, particularly cardiovascular health. Essential oil of the bergamot peel is used widely in the food and cosmetic industries, whereas the juice flavonoids have
been suggested to be the components responsible for benefitting cardiovascular health.
BergaCor™ features Bergamot Polyphenolic Fraction Gold® (BPFG®), a concentrated bergamot juice extract containing a unique combination of naturally occurring polyphenolic components that exhibit antioxidant activity. These protective flavonoids include neoeriocitrin, naringin, neohesperidin, melitidin, and brutieridin, each of which
influences a slightly different and distinctive molecular pathway. The following focuses on the mechanisms proposed to be responsible for the beneficial cardioprotective effects of bergamot, which include the maintenance of healthy lipid and blood glucose levels and the support of normal resistance to oxidative stress.
