NOT ALL BERGAMOT PRODUCTS ARE THE SAME!
When looking at Bergamot products it is important that you know some information:
BergaMet is the ONLY product based on the most up to date and ongoing research of Professor Mollace (MD, PhD), extensive patient data and the expert opinion of Dr Ross Walker (MB, BS (HONS) FRACP, FCSANZ), who as a cardiologist has over 1000 patients on BergaMet.
Mollace’s research is only conducted using an extract containing Bergamot Polyphenols (BPF Extract) from a particular region in Calabria, Italy.
Mollace tried many sources of Bergamot but found it was ONLY Calabrian Citrus Bergamot that had the unique polyphenols that are necessary to reduce cholesterol, blood glucose and treat metabolic syndrome and which are shown and are continued to be shown in his research.
The BPF extract is obtained using a patented extraction process with a patented application. The patents are held by an Italian company, who has granted an exclusive worldwide license (excluding Italy) to NathealthSolutions Pty Ltd. Nathealth has appointed Calabrian Citrus Bergamot Limited as exclusive distributors in Europe, Middle East and Asia.
The continued research has shown that there are certain requirements needed in a bergamot product. These are:
a minimum of 38% polyphenols;
the right dosing schedule for treating high cholesterol, in at least 90% of patients, is 1200-1500 mg/day.
There are other products out there but none of these work in association with Professor Mollace and Dr Ross Walker and do not follow their continued research. These other products have a much lower content of bergamot and significantly lower polyphenols. This makes a considerable difference to their effect. Most are recommending well below the required dose. Also they no longer have access to the BPF Extract. Companies may be sourcing an extract from other areas outside of Calabria, which does not have the same polyphenols as Calabrian BPF extract and therefore has no relation to Mollace’s research.
Don’t be fooled by cheap Imitations
‘BergaMet manufactured by Nathealthsolutions from the BPF Extract and sold by Nathealth and Calabrian Citrus Bergamot Ltd is the only product that my researchers and I endorse.’

Why is it important to have 38% or more polyphenols?
At least 90% of the effect of bergamot extract is due to its polyphenolic component (see Janda, Walker & Mollace 2013). It appears clear that an extract with 38% BPF component is able to produce a 25% more effective action in lowering cholesterol and triglyceride compared to the 30% one. Polyphenols lower than this will have very little effect. Prof Vincenzo Mollace MD, PhD
