Product Notes:

Bergamot is a lime-coloured citrus fruit (Citrus bergamia) about the size of an orange which grows mainly in the Mediterranean - especially southern Italy. It's believed to have originated as a hybrid of lemons and bitter oranges.

Most of us have probably unknowingly encountered the bitter tastes or scents from the essential oils extracted from its peels, either as a component of Earl Grey or Lady Grey teas, or in perfumes, or in a stand-alone bergamot essential oil (which many use for reducing stress or anxiety).

But there may also be important health benefits from its fruit, as well, which is rich in vitamin C and in bio-active flavonoids and other powerful polyphenols, making it a natural antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that can help the immune system and combat premature aging, and it also appears to be able to lower LDL cholesterol levels, which is why it's been used for hyperlipidemia. There have even been studies showing it may be able to alleviate acne, and that it has anti-microbial effects that may help curtail Helicobacter pylori infections (which are associated with heartburn and peptic ulcers.

Ingredients:

100% organic bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia (L.)), extracted from the fresh fruit, sourced directly from small farmers in Calabria, Italy (the main region this type of fruit has been grown for many generations, now).

Not from concentrate. Unfiltered, undiluted and unsweetened.

Suggested Usage:

Take 2 to 4 tablespoons a day, either on its own, or added to purified water, salad dressings or smoothies.

Store bottle in a cool, dark place, to begin with. Once it's opened, keep it in the fridge and finish it within 10 days.
