Why scientists are calling Citrus Bergamot extract...

The Best Way Yet to Lower Triglycerides Naturally

Clinical trials show triglycerides down 39% while LDL cholesterol fell by 36% and healthy HDL rose by 40%!

By Dr. Kevin Passero

It’s no secret that controlling your cholesterol is vitally important for your cardiovascular health and longevity.

But there's another measure of cardiovascular health you shouldn't ignore: your triglyceride levels. Just like cholesterol, elevated levels of these fats can put your heart at risk.

The “solutions” mainstream doctors typically recommend for lowering cholesterol and triglycerides come with a host of potentially harmful side effects that most people would prefer to avoid. And many of the natural solutions that can help support heart health aren't particularly effective at lowering triglyceride levels.

That's why cardiologists are excited about a little-known citrus fruit grown in sunny Southern Italy that is producing dramatic clinical results in gold-standard research.

So if you’re concerned about your cholesterol or triglyceride levels and are looking for a natural solution that actually works, please keep reading because a patented extract from this Italian citrus “superfruit” has been scientifically shown to help you:**

• Reduce artery-clogging triglycerides by 39%

• Lower dangerous LDL cholesterol by 36%

• Significantly raise healthy HDL cholesterol by 40% (something most other solutions fail to do)

The #1 Natural Heart Health Solution That I Recommend for My Patients

Durable HEART

Hello, I’m Dr. Kevin Passero.

In over 20 years of seeing patients at my clinics in the Washington, DC area, this is one of the most exciting advances in natural cholesterol control I’ve ever seen, which is why I want to share it with you today.

I’m talking about a little-known citrus fruit from Italy called Citrus Bergamot.

This fragrant yellow-green fruit is loaded with cardio-boosting flavonoids and other polyphenols linked to significant improvements in cholesterol control, arterial function, serum blood sugar numbers and overall cardiovascular health.*

And indeed, a flurry of recent clinical studies makes an indisputable scientific case.

When It Comes to Balancing Cholesterol and Triglycerides,
the Citrus Bergamot Fruit is Like Nothing Else

I always do extensive research before recommending any nutrient or natural solution to my patients.

The most important factor for me to see is clinical confirmation of results that carry forward from one study to the next. Often times the trendy “solutions” are associated with just one hyped up study which is not enough for me to make clinical decisions for my patients.

So I was excited to find a team from a leading university that recently performed an exhaustive deep dive into the clinical research on citrus bergamot. They identified 8 gold-standard bergamot studies that met their strict criteria for excellence and uncovered amazing results:*

As a scientist and a doctor, I was extremely impressed by the magnitude of success achieved by citrus bergamot on a clinical level, with every single study showing that supplementing with a citrus bergamot extract led to double digit drops in dangerous LDL and harmful triglycerides. And HDL (healthy cholesterol) increased in every study as well!

As I continued to review the research, it became clear to me that… 

There’s One Potent Citrus Bergamot
Extract That Significantly Outperforms the Rest

It’s a patented form of citrus bergamot called Bergamonte®.

Multiple, gold-standard clinical trials reveal Bergamonte’s unique power to support cholesterol balance—much better than generic forms of citrus bergamot and in fact better than any other natural solutions I’ve ever seen.*

The clinical results are truly remarkable: Cardiology researchers from a top university gave participants 1,000 mg of Bergamonte® daily for 30 days, and the average improvements for the participants were simply outstanding.**

Total Cholesterol:
DOWN 29%

DOWN 36%

DOWN 39%

Blood Sugar:
DOWN 22%

And how did this patented form of citrus bergamot affect “good” HDL cholesterol levels?

After 30 days of giving participants 1,000 mg of Bergamonte®, scientists reported a remarkable increase of 40%.*

Now that’s a game-changer for anyone struggling with cholesterol or triglyceride issues.

A second trial by the same research team answered the other big question I had: What’s the optimal daily serving size? It clearly showed… 

The Right Dosage Level Makes a Huge Difference

The scientists repeated the test, but this time giving volunteers half the dosage (500 mg daily) of Bergamonte®.

The smaller dose helped—but not nearly as well as the 1,000 mg daily serving size. In fact, the difference was staggering. 

The full-strength 1,000 mg serving significantly outperformed the 500 mg serving:*

34% more effective in lowering total cholesterol
50% more effective in lowering LDL cholesterol
29% more effective in lowering triglycerides

As for good HDL cholesterol, the 1,000 mg serving outdid the 500 mg serving by an amazing 80%! It wasn’t even close.* 

This is especially important because HDL cholesterol plays a critical role in protecting our arteries from dangerous plaque formation. It removes built up cholesterol from our cells and brings it to the liver to be removed from the body! Therapies that lower LDL are great, but ones that also raise HDL are even better when it comes to maximum cardiovascular protection.


So for anyone who is serious about tackling cholesterol and triglycerides issues, I always recommend exactly what I tell my patients: The 1,000 mg full-strength, clinically validated dosage of Bergamonte® instead of the widely advertised and far less potent 500 mg dose. 

So How Does Bergamonte® Work
And What Makes It So Effective?

As my patients often ask me: How is it that Bergamonte® lowers dangerous LDL cholesterol (by 36%) and triglycerides (by 39%) while increasing healthy HDL cholesterol (by 40%) so much more effective than virtually anything else out there?

Science has the answer, and it lies in citrus bergamot’s powerful, natural polyphenols:* 

• Bergamot polyphenols have been shown to reduce the oxidation of LDL cholesterol in your bloodstream which is a critical first step in the process of arterial plaque formation.

• Bergamot’s polyphenols inhibit an enzyme called HMG-CoA that plays a major role in cholesterol synthesis.

• Bergamot polyphenols activate Cholesterol 7R hydroxylase which converts liver cholesterol into bile acids that are excreted from the body.

• Bergamot polyphenols activate another major enzyme in the body called AMPK, your body’s metabolic “master switch” that helps keep your blood sugar and lipids in check. This is really big news because...

Blood Sugar Is an Important Factor in the Cardiovascular Health Puzzle
and Citrus Bergamot Helps Lower It!

I just mentioned that citrus bergamot activates AMPK, which is a major player in blood sugar metabolism.

The problem is AMPK activity declines with age. That means less glucose gets into your cells, and more glucose remains in your blood.*

And that’s when blood sugar becomes a cardiovascular worry.

Excess blood sugar damages the inside of your arteries and is linked with rising triglycerides and rising LDL. Everything you want to avoid!

Indeed, doctors now recognize that healthy blood sugar plays a big role in the overall cardiovascular picture—and Bergamonte® helps to manage that as well.*

In the Italian study I mentioned above, it lowered blood sugar scores an average of 22%!*. So chalk up yet another big benefit with this natural wonder! 

Here Is the Exact Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Regimen
That I Recommend to Patients

I was so impressed by the clinical research studies and the results produced by this natural heart health powerhouse that I developed a specific regimen to help my patients get the most out of this remarkable gift of nature.

Here is what I tell my patients:

1) Choose the best citrus bergamot which is the patented Bergamonte®. Unlike generic forms, it’s standardized to a clinical-strength 38% polyphenols—the powerful constituents that reduce LDL oxidation, inhibit cholesterol synthesis and regulate blood sugar.

2) Utilize the full clinical serving of 1,000 mg daily. The clinical trials I reviewed clearly showed how 1,000 mg daily produced by far the best overall results: 50% lower LDL cholesterol and 82% higher HDL cholesterol compared to the 500 mg dosage.*

3) Bergamonte® works best when combined with Vitamin C: A 2021 report shows that bergamot enhanced with vitamin C helps your body more efficiently utilize the cholesterol-balancing properties of citrus bergamot while providing potent antioxidant benefits.*

4) Combine Bergamonte® with Olive Leaf Extract. Rich in a powerful inflammation-fighting polyphenol called oleuropein, olive leaf extract provides extra support for healthy lipid metabolism and arterial health. To me, it’s the perfect complement to Bergamonte®, so I tell my patients to take both together for maximum benefits!* 

A Superior Cholesterol and Triglyceride Solution
With Results in Just 30 Days

I firmly believe that the regimen I developed for my patients is truly the most effective (and safest) way to naturally get your cholesterol under control. However, while most of my patients achieved success with my regimen, the truth is that some of them had a hard time following it.

They found that most citrus bergamot supplements didn’t use patented Bergamonte®, and those that did often cut corners by using the less effective 500 mg dose. And the few that did feature 1,000 mg of Bergamonte® were prohibitively expensive. 

Then my patients had to separately take Vitamin C to enhance the benefits of Bergamonte® and olive leaf extract for arterial health and other cardiovascular benefits. I must admit, all of this combined made the regimen too expensive and inconvenient for some. 

I knew there had to be a better solution for the patients in my clinic and anyone else looking to naturally lower dangerous cholesterol and triglycerides. 

Fortunately, I also serve as Chief Science Officer for Durable™, a cutting-edge dietary supplement company that I co-founded with my good friend Josh Corn, who has been a leading natural health advocate for over 20 years. 

Together we created a new, convenient, affordable and all-in-one solution, based on the regimen that I developed for my patients. We call it Durable HEART™
