Not all Bergamot Products are Equal!
BergaMet is the only company whose bergamot extract is approved by the prestigious Accademia del Bergamotto in Calabria, Italy.
- BergaMet Products are the only bergamot based products that faithfully follow the proper dosage and concentrations of Bergamot extract used and recommended in all the recent clinical studies.
- BergaMet supplements are made with a patented process that compresses polyphenol-enriched powder, containing over 40% flavonoids, into Bergamot Polyphenol Fraction (BPF) tablets. BPF contains the same flavonoids as Bergamot juice, but at much higher levels. Bergamot Polyphenolic Fraction is 200 times more concentrated in BPF tablets.
The Calabrian region of Italy yields the most potent citrus bergamot fruit in the world, which enables BergaMet to produce a BPF (bergamot polyphenolic fraction) of 47 percent or greater - the most concentrated extract available anywhere.
Competing citrus bergamot products contain only 38 percent BPF or less (BergaMet products contain a minimum of 40 percent and up to 47 percent BPF).
Bergamot is naturally sourced, organic, and grown with no pesticides whatsoever.
BergaMet is the only bergamot product formulated based on the most up-to-date research by highly regarded medical professionals who oversee thousands of patients currently taking bergamot supplements. Learn more from our medical team.
The History of Bergamot
A Rare Gem
The first recorded traces of citrus bergamia appear around 1750, when a man named Nicola Parisi cultivated the first-known extensive planting of bergamot trees near the Calabrian region in Southern Italy. This area has a tropical humid temperate climate (meaning hot humid summers and mild winters) that happens to be perfect for growing not just any citrus bergamot, but the best in the world. Even other regions with similar climates, like Argentina, Brazil, and the Ivory Coast, can’t match the quality of our Southern Italian fruit.
Citrus bergamot is widely useful as well as rare. Its cultivation in native Calabria totals around 22 thousand tons of fruit each year - incredible when compared to the 70 million tons of common citrus fruits produced globally each year (over half of which are oranges). Bergamot farmers perform a clever pruning technique that allows each tree to grow in volume while lowering its stature at the same time, providing plants protection from strong summer sun and winds. Citrus bergamot trees produce fragrant white flowers and have robust, shiny green leaves all year round.
Although certain types of bergamot can be grown all around the world, our extract’s especially high concentrations of five polyphenols in particular are unique fruit grown in the Calabrian region of Southern Italy.
