Citrus Bergamot is endemic to the Calabrian region of southern Italy, where the unique soil and climate combine to produce Bergamot juice with uniquely high concentrations of polyphenols. The benefits of this juice for the cardiovascular system were unknown for centuries, despite the fact that the bitter juice has been taken traditionally by locals as a general health tonic. Now, researchers at the University of Cantanzaro in Italy have discovered that Calabrian bergamot maybe a way to help manage cholesterol using diet.

The researchers found that bergamot from this region differs from other citrus fruits, not only because of its unique flavonoids, but also because of their particularly high content. Polyphenols such as Naringin, Neohesperin, Brutelidin and Melitidin have demonstrated a range of potential health benefits in clinical testing that are not found in any other citrus fruits.

Citrus Aurantium is grown throughout the world, but it is the specific species Citrus Bergamia Risso (Bergamot) from Calabria Italy that contains these unique pholyphenols. Dr Vincenzo Mollace, Professor in the faculty of pharmacology at the University of Cantanzaro said: 'Bergamot contains extremely large amounts of polyphenols, as compared to other citrus species. 'Two of these, Brutelidin and Melitidin, directly inhibit cholesterol biosynthesis and they are not found in any other citrus derivatives.
