Cardiovascular Disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the Western Hemisphere and nearly 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day. Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 causes of death and disability among people with type 2 diabetes. In fact, at least 65 percent of people with diabetes die from some form of heart disease or stroke.
The good news is, you can lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Take responsibility for managing your cholesterol and blood sugar levels. High cholesterol does not produce symptoms until significant damage has been done, so you must have your blood tested regularly to understand your current situation and do not hesitate to take immediate preventative steps if necessary.
Unfortunately many of the medicines prescribed by physicians have negative side effects such as muscle pain and negative impacts on your liver. Bergamonte™, a completely natural product backed by published human clinical studies, provides remarkable results with none of these side effects.
Understanding Our Cardiovascular Health
There are two types of cholesterol, LDL the “bad” cholesterol and HDL, the “good” cholesterol. LDL is produced naturally by the body and the amount produced can be hereditary. If too much LDL circulates in your blood it can clog arteries through build up of plaque directly increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke.
A healthy level of HDL or the “good’ cholesterol may also protect against heart attack and stroke, while low levels of HDL have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease. We need to lower our LDL cholesterol and raise our HDL cholesterol.
We must also monitor our blood sugar levels as people with Diabetes are more likely to have cardiovascular concerns.
Extend Your Quality of Life
Raising your HDL is extremely important. Studies show that regular physical activity, reducing trans fat intake and a balanced nutritious diet will help. You must keep your LDL in acceptable ranges.
Supplements and Natural Solutions
Red Yeast Rice, Policosanol and phtyosterols have long been the primary ingredients in supplements and natural heath solutions, but I have been really impressed with the clinical data and feedback we have received on Bergamonte.
Bergamonte™ naturally occurs in the southern tip of Italy. It has been used in soaps, shampoo and teas for years. There is now an extract that has been studied in a double blind, placebo controlled human clinical trial of over 500 patients and the results are impressive. Bergamonte™ has unique active ingredients that inhibit an enzyme made in the liver from producing LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. To my knowledge, no other natural product has exhibited these results with up to a 40% increase in HDL, a 36% decrease in LDL, 38% decrease in Trigylcerides and over a 20% decrease in blood sugar. These results were achieved after only 30 days of use. Bergamonte™ is a full spectrum extract with strong antioxidant properties that has shown to increase vascular or blood vessel dilation.
I strongly feel that the combination of a healthy and nutritious diet, some form of gentle exercise and the appropriate supplementation, will help lower cholesterol levels significantly.
