Statins versus Citrus Bergamot

Citrus Bergamot has some free text articles on Pub Med that describe effects such as

"The results are shown below, but patients who received 500 or 1,000 mg of BPF (bergamot polyphenol fraction, essentially refined bergamot oil) for 30 consecutive days saw a significant reduction in total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides and blood glucose coupled with a significant increase in HDL levels.2 Mar 2023 "

It is from sour inedible orange mainly grown in Sicily and is fairly widely available as a supplement, even in Australia at one major

chemist chain as well as online from the usual well known big American supplement suppliers.

A number of testimonials on them have (seemingly genuine) testimonials about reductions in their levels. My open minded GP read one study on my phone when trying to put me on statins

and said, "This is rather interesting." A friend had her cholesterol levels drop markedly after she put herself on CB when her GP also wanted her on statins. He did not want to know why but conceded her latest

levels did not now warrant a statin.
