An estimated 20 – 25% of the world’s adult population has metabolic syndrome. In the United States, tens of millions of people—approximately 34% of the population—is estimated to have metabolic syndrome. If you have abdominal fat, hypertension, abnormal lipids, and/or borderline high blood sugar, you’re likely one of them. Obviously, having even one of the five risk factors isn't good. But when they're combined and become metabolic syndrome, you’ve set the stage for serious problems.
Metabolic syndrome is associated with increased risk of several serious diseases including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance, prediabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are also closely related to metabolic syndrome. NAFLD is one of the most common causes of liver-related mortality worldwide.
If you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, you have significantly increased your risk of serious diseases.
Metabolic syndrome has been found to:
Double the cardiometabolic risk (chance of heart disease or stroke)
Increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by five times
If you have 3 of these 5 conditions
YOU ARE AT RISK
High Blood Pressure
Unhealthy Cholesterol Levels (low HDL)
Elevated Blood Sugar
High Level of Triglycerides
What Causes Metabolic Syndrome?
The exact cause of metabolic syndrome is unknown, but genetic factors, too much body fat (especially around the waist), and lack of exercise contribute to it. The most common symptom of metabolic syndrome, including diabetes, is unhealthy weight.
Obesity and overweight have risen to epidemic proportions in the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 67% of adults are overweight (parts of Europe are the same) and, of these, approximately half are obese. These shocking statistics highlight the need for (1) reducing energy intake and increasing energy expenditure, and (2) therapeutic lifestyle change.
BergaMet Is Designed to Improve Metabolic Syndrome
BergaMet Mega is a healthy, natural supplement made from the rare Calabrian Italian Bergamot orange. BergaMet promotes healthy weight, cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure while improving artery health. It is specifically formulated for those who are interested in cardiovascular and metabolic health, including those with concerns regarding cholesterol, statin drugs, diabetes, fatty liver and pre-diabetes/insulin resistant metabolic states.

Acting as an Effective Anti-Inflammatory
Positively Effecting Metabolic Syndrome
Polyphenol-rich bergamot extract has been demonstrated to counter oxidative stress and suppress inflammation in endothelial cells, inhibit plaque formation, and improve arterial responsiveness.
BergaMet Polyphenolic Fraction (BPF) is becoming the leading therapy for individuals with metabolic syndrome. In addition to its positive effects on cardiovascular risk factors, this extract also activates AMPK. AMPK is a central regulator of energy and is thus involved in glucose and fatty acid metabolism. “Turning on” AMPK improves insulin sensitivity, promotes glucose uptake in cells, and suppresses the synthesis of glucose in the liver, thus lowering blood sugar. It also stimulates the burning of free fatty acids and facilitates weight control.
BergaMet Polyphenolic Fraction (BPF 47%) has also been found to significantly reduce serum total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides in human patients with metabolic syndrome and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). These findings come from a placebo-controlled clinical trial published in 2014, which also found bergamot derivatives may play a preventive role in reducing cardio-metabolic risk by improving NAFLD biomarkers.
BergaMet NA is the only nutraceutical company that makes supplements with the most powerful citrus bergamot in the world, from Calabria, Italy, producing a BPF (Bergamot Polyphenolic Fraction) of up to 47%. The bergamot juice that is extracted, concentrated, and standardized in tablet form. Taken twice per day, BergaMet lowers triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, raises protective HDL, helps control blood sugar, and improves overall arterial function and cardiovascular health.
The only citrus bergamot supplement approved by the prestigious Accademia del Bergamotto is BergaMet.
“There is no single product in the world that can match BergaMet’s combined effect on cholesterol, blood sugar, arterial health, abdominal obesity and fatty liver.” *

Extensive clinical trials have been conducted by the University of Rome to prove the effectiveness of this wonderful bergamot extract. A double-blind placebo clinical trial conducted at the Department of Cardiology of the University of Rome and the Vascular Medicine and Artherosclerosis Unit Cardiology, Villa Salus Medical Center, produced the following data:
- Bergamot could be an effective nutraceutical approach to prevent atherosclerosis.
- Bergamot contributes to lowering plasma cholesterol and lipid levels, in a range of potency comparable with currently used hypolipidemic drugs such as statins.
- Bergamot reduces blood glucose by 15%-23% thus offering an alternative approach to control the pre-diabetic states in patients with metabolic syndrome.
- Bergamot efficiently lowered Total Cholesterol and LDL (bad cholesterol), without inducing any side effects.
“It is my opinion that BergaMet is the most important natural substance for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease that has been available over the past thirty to fifty years.
I have prescribed BergaMet to around 5,000 patients and recommend anyone over 50 should take this as a preventative agent."
“The longer you take it, the greater the benefit.” *

The Best Treatment for Metabolic Syndrome Rests with YOU!
If you have been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, consider it a wake-up call. It's time to get serious about improving your health. Making simple changes to your habits and behaviors now can prevent serious illness in the future. The good news is that metabolic syndrome can be controlled, largely with changes to your lifestyle.
Eating healthier and getting more exercise is the first step. By adopting some healthy habits, you may be able to eliminate your risk factors completely. Even if you don't lose weight immediately, exercise can lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, and improve insulin resistance.
