To whom would you recommend to use BergaMet?

If you are over 50 and Want to Maintain Normal Arterial Function and Flexibility, Have Metabolic Syndrome, Are  Currently Taking Statin Therapy, Are Statin Intolerant, but Still Want an Alternative to Maintain Healthy LDL and HDL Subfractions,

Are at Low Risk for Vascular Disease but Still Have Lipid Abnormalities, Have Fatty Liver Disease.

Does BergaMet have a documented safety profile?

Bergamot has been used for centuries in the southern regions of Italy, with no side effects of any significance. In particular, the active ingredient in BergaMet has been used in several countries of the world including Australia, New Zealand, and USA on more than 10,000 patients with no reported side effects after more than two years of use. Moreover, since this is an absolutely natural product, it is evident that it has a well-established safety profile. Its interaction with other drugs (antihypertensives, antidiabetic agents, anti-platelet aggregation etc.) has shown no unpleasant side-effects.

There are no problems in this regard, and in fact there is some evidence to show some support for BergaMet in patients with various types of cancer, although this is certainly not a proven benefit as yet.

It has an effect on blood glucose because of the direct effect on the “energy receptor” on the cell surface. Apart from the brain, for glucose to enter the cells and in particular the muscles, it has to enter via a receptor which I term the “energy receptor”. Insulin is the doorman that opens the door to facilitate the entry of glucose and other nutrients into the cells. In people with metabolic syndrome characterized by a tendency to diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, abdominal obesity and cardiovascular disease, the energy receptor is partially jammed and the only way the body can respond to this is by making more insulin to enter into the cell.BergaMet acts directly on this receptor to facilitate it opening and thus allow more sugar to enter the cell. This is probably why it also helps to reduce blood pressure and increase HDL.

It does, but not as much, as it mainly works in the liver and that is precisely how it acts on affecting the cholesterol pathways in the liver, mentioned in A3. It also has some peripheral metabolic effects as well but they are not as profound as what happens in the liver.

BergaMet has three main modes of action.
One of these is to block cholesterol absorption in the gut similar to the plant sterols. This is why we suggest you take BergaMet before meals. Don’t worry if you forget. Its other actions are more important. Take it as soon as you remember. The main thing is to take it twice a day.

Although BergaMet has some similar antioxidants to grapefruit, grapefruit has a profound effect on the metabolic pathways within the liver thus blocking many drugs, whereas BergaMet does not appear to have the same effect and therefore appears safe to take with all medications.

Bergamet does not contain bergamottin, as it uses the dehydrated juice of the orange using a special extraction process. Bergamottin is found in the peel of citrus fruits. That is why grapefruit juice, which is a combination of skin and pulp is not safe with statins and other medications such as warfarin.

There is no known interaction between Warfarin and BergaMet and therefore from the studies to date this appears a perfectly safe thing to do

If you are on a statin, you should never stop this without your doctor’s permission and supervision. If you have been taking statins for any length of time, sudden cessation may lead to a marked rise in cholesterol over the initial levels.

This is because statins block the last step in cholesterol production and when these are stopped, there is often an over- reaction of the blocked enzyme system lasting for a 6-8 week period. A natural product , such as BergaMet is not strong enough to overcome this effect initially, and would not be expected to reduce cholesterol for at least a 2-3 months under these circumstances.

You can take Bergamet if you are recovering from cancer treatment.

You can take Bergamet with your statin. However, we advise that you do not stop taking your medication unless advised by your medical practitioner.

There are no reported interactions of Bergamet with other medication, including warfarin.

You can take Bergamet with your statin. However, we advise that you do not stop taking your medication unless advised by your medical practitioner.

There have been no significant side effects to Bergamet. Rarely, there have been reports of mild stomach upset. This usually settles within a few days. If you are experiencing problems, try taking bergamet with food for a few days . If you experience any problems please email

If you forget to take your tablet before your meal, take it before the next main meal if there are still 2 meals in the day. Otherwise take it when you remember.

Bergamet works at a number of areas within the body. The stomach is just one area. Therefore, you will still get benefits if you forget to take Bergamet before meals. However, you will just not get the full benefit.
