Have you heard of bergamot? Scientifically known as Citrus bergamia, the fruit resembles an orange and even has an orange-blossom scent in the wild. It gives Earl Grey tea its distinct aroma. The smell is so lovely that it is used as an essential oil to lower anxiety and sooth signs of depression common to seasonal affective disorder.
Containing powerful antioxidants and with extensive antimicrobial properties, the total body wellness benefits of bergamot are going to blow you away!

Bergamot Benefits Instead of Statin Use!
Statin drugs used to lower cholesterol – which aren’t doing anything in the battle against heart disease (the number one killer in the world) – are truly bad for you. They may lower blood fats (indiscriminately) but they beat the rest of your body up in the process.
I’ve made it very clear for years that cholesterol is not the boogeyman when it comes to heart disease but it’s not a popular position to take. Statin drugs continue to outsell every other medication and clinical trials that prove why this is dangerous are buried or discredited quickly.
I’m not telling you to go off statins prescribed to you by your doctor but you should ask questions, talk about taking a lower dose, or even ask your doctor if there are natural ways to lower dangerous cholesterol without taking statins. See what he or she tells you!
If they are like the majority of healthcare professionals, they’ll make light of the dangers, point at your cholesterol as the primary risk for heart attack or stroke, and send you on your way with your latest statin prescription.
A vicious cycle that has done nothing to lower the rate of heart disease around the world.
Since most doctors will gloss over the side effects of statins or tell you that the occurrences are “rare,” allow me to tell you what they likely will not.
Statin use has been linked to…
- Muscular deterioration and muscle pain (including the heart muscle)
- Neuropathy (nerve damage) that may be permanent
- Damage to the liver
- Damage to kidneys to the point of complete kidney failure
- Spikes in blood glucose that increase your risk of diabetes
- Impaired brain cognition in regards to memory, motor skills, and problem solving
- Inability to synthesize coenzyme-Q10 (CoQ10) – a critical nutrient for heart health
The time has come to take control of your health. At seventy, I take the complete health of my body very seriously – especially my heart. As a doctor, I’m something of a skeptic when it comes to supplements. I take very few myself so when I tell you I started taking bergamot in tablet form and never plan to stop, it’s because I personally believe in it!
I’ve felt the results. I demand full potency, no fillers, and 100% natural products to put them into my body. After all, it is the only one I will ever have!
There will be many bergamot supplements cropping up in the next few years but I’ll stick with the one I trust. The supplement I take is created from a specific variety of the fruit grown in Calabria, Italy. The tablets are less expensive than the juice made from the imported fruit!
Bergamot doesn’t make it difficult for your body to break down medications or cause interactions. The only side effect reported by some users from this amazing fruit supplement is mild indigestion, while others profess that it aids digestion.
Your organs are going to feel a new lease on life when you take Bergamet Mega! Don’t wait another day to start actively preventing and actually reversing heart disease, liver disease, and the signs of aging with the benefits of bergamot. I know you will not regret it.
