Bergamot differs from other citrus fruits not only because of the composition of it's antioxidant polyphenols, but because of their particularly high content. Two Bergamot ( 47% BPF) polyphenols, bruteridin and melitidin, are very potent antioxidants that protect against free radical damage throughout the body, including the all-important vascular endothelium.
The condition and function of the endothelium—the thin layer of cells lining the blood vessels—is perhaps the most important determinant of cardiovascular health as it is intimately involved in vasoconstriction/dilation and thus blood pressure, inflammation, blood clotting, and the formation of new blood vessels.
Polyphenol-rich bergamot extract has been demonstrated to counter oxidative stress and suppress inflammation in endothelial cells, inhibit plaque formation, and improve arterial responsiveness.
