Biological target

Subjects with border line values of “bad-cholesterol” or people suffering from dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome and hyperglycemia.

Mechanism of action

SelectSIEVE® Bergamot has a unique profile of glycosilated flavonoids:

  • Hesperetin reduces hepatic TG accumulation and TG-synthesis
  • Naringenin and Hesperetin decrease assembly of lipoproteins by decreasing the complex ACAT activity
  • Neoeriocitin inhibits LDL oxidation
  • Naringin, Melitidin and Brutieridin selectively inhibit HMG-CoA reducatse, responsible for the cholesterol biosynthesis, through a statin-like action

Ingredient benefits

SelectSIEVE® Bergamot is composed by all the healthy flavonoids from bergamot fruit whose natural hypolipidemic, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic effect are well-known in traditional medicine. Such polyphenols are isolated from the fruit in glycosilated form which is a guarantee of the natural source and improves their digestibility, bioavailability and stability.
