A Citrus Bergamot extract, has been shown in multiple clinical studies to keep pace with the results that are seen with statin drugs. However unlike statins, CitriCholess helps to reduce blood sugar.
Bergamonte has clinically proven cholesterol and triglyceride-lowering abilities. Human studies in patients with diet-induced hyperlipidemia have demonstrated an average 28% decrease in serum cholesterol, 38% decrease in triglycerides, 38% decrease in LDL, 38% increase in HDL cholesterol, and 22% decrease in blood glucose.
New research is under way on the other benefits of Bergamonte in CitriCholess and initial results show that it may reduce plaque formation in arteries, and reduce arterial scar tissue. Studies are being done to see if Bergamonte may even be effective for sickle cell anemia.
Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, & Vitamin B12
Have been shown in studies to help reduce the formation of homocysteine, an independent coronary artery risk in cardiovascular health. High homocysteine levels have been linked to cholesterol plaques in coronary arteries.
Vegapure®† Plant Sterols
Have been clinically documented to block the absorption of animal fats found in dietary cholesterol. Plant sterols bind to the fat-processing receptors in the digestive tract so that harmful animal fats are simply passed through the digestive system and excreted.
Provides a potent source of D-limonene, which breaks down and dissolves cholesterol in the digestive system.
