Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™️ is very effective on its own. According to a number of clinical trials, it can help to improve cholesterol levels while providing an array of other health benefits.
But it could be even more effective if it’s paired with other drugs.
Some of the most exciting research we have read in recent years has concerned the use of citrus bergamot in combination with statins.
We know that statins are effective. They are one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world and have probably saved millions of lives. In fact, as things stand, statins are one of our main weapons in the fight against heart disease, the number one killer in the United States.
But they don’t work for everyone and statin-intolerant individuals may need to consume progressively larger amounts, thus increasing the risk of side effects.
By supplementing with citrus bergamot, statin-intolerant patients could keep their doses low while improving their outcomes.
A study published in 2014 found that bergamot extracts had a notable impact on cholesterol levels and suggested that it could be used in combination with statins. Another study, conducted a year earlier, compared bergamot extracts to a commonly prescribed statin, noting that they were both effective and hinting that they could be combined.
You know the saying: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
A few years ago, many scammers sold cheap supplements that they branded as “miracle weight loss supplements”. They claimed that these pills were worth $100 or so per bottle, and then informed you that you could get 2 bottles for a special one-time price.
The price was low. The supplements seemed promising, and it looked like a win-win for the consumer. But as soon as they placed an order, consumers were hooked into long-term and expensive subscriptions that were nearly impossible to cancel.
Be very wary of a product that promises everything but can’t support those promises with facts, as well as supplements that are dirt-cheap.
If you think that Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™️ can work for you, and you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, speak with your doctor.
Not only can they provide advice specific to your situation and physiology, but they can also conduct baseline checks and updates to determine if the combination is working for you.
You may discover, as many patients do, that Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™️ and statins are able to lower your cholesterol more than statins on their own. If so, your doctor may consider lowering your dose of statins or looking at some alternative treatments to implement alongside your supplement regime.
