The following is a sponsored post for Bergamonte capsules from the Nutri Lifescience company.
The setting: a curious consumer goes online to learn about health supplements that can lower bad cholesterol. The following is a fictional dialogue between the curious consumer and an online helper...
Curious consumer: I really want to lower my cholesterol, but I don't know where to start.
Online Helper: Cholesterol, the good and the bad. We have to live with it because we can't survive without it.
Curious consumer: Really? I didn't know that.
Online Helper: Yes. Cholesterol is a natural substance that every man, woman and child needs in order to survive. Cholesterol keeps our cells intact, is a component of steroid hormones, and helps digest certain foods.
Curious consumer: If that's the case, then why is cholesterol bad?
Online Helper: In reality, cholesterol in and of itself is healthy; a certain type of cholesterol is the heart of the problem.
Curious consumer: Okay, so what is bad cholesterol? We hear a lot about it, but what does it mean exactly?
Online Helper: I'm glad that you asked. Bad cholesterol is that type which clogs up blood vessels which can cause heart attacks and strokes.
Online Helper: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that 73.5 million Americans are living with high cholesterol. That's almost 74 million people who are at risk for heart attacks and strokes because their cholesterol is too high.
Online Helper: Bad cholesterol is actually low density lipoprotein or LDL for short. This substance is different from high density lipoprotein, otherwise known as "good cholesterol" or HDL. When LDL accumulates in the blood vessels it clogs them up, similar to what happens when something clogs up your kitchen sink. When the pipe in your sink gets blocked, the water backs up into the sink causing a messy overflow. When blood can't get past LDLs, the blood vessels will burst and that can cause a stroke or heart attack.
Curious consumer: Okay, so what can we do about it?
Online Helper: There are many things we can do about bad cholesterol. Get regular checkups to learn what your cholesterol levels are. Some people require medication to get their levels under control. Diet and exercise can lower bad cholesterol. Also, folks who are interested in supplementing their diet have been using Bergamonte which is made by the company Nutri Lifescience.
Curious consumer: How does Bergamonte work?
Online Helper: A study published in the International Journal of Cardiology demonstrated that chemical extracts from the plant Citrus Bergamia Risso lowered LDL cholesterol in humans. Nutri Lifescience's Bergamonte capsules contain extracts from this citrus plant which grows in southern Italy. Bergamonte prevents the liver from using HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methyglutaryl COA) reductase. This enzyme is involved in making LDL cholesterol. Nutri Lifescience also added vitamin C to their capsules. Randomized controlled trials show that vitamin C lowers LDL cholesterol. Nutri Lifescience suggests two capsules twice a day for the first three months.
Curious consumer: How do I know that Bergamonte is right for me?
Online Helper: Nutri Lifescience puts their product through rigorous testing at their state of the art facility; a third party accredited lab successfully tested Nutri Lifescience's Bergamonte for physical and heavy metals and microbial organisms and this product has also been supported by shelf life studies. Bergamonte by Nutri Lifescience is also free of gluten, which should be welcome news to folks who follow a gluten free diet. All in all health enthusiasts like you can rest assured that you're using a safe and well-tested health supplement product.
Curious consumer: I have a friend who was diagnosed with fatty liver disease. Can he use Bergamonte?
Online helper: Always consult your physician before making any changes to your diet. People with fatty liver disease who take Bergamonte to improve their healthy cholesterol, often use the supplement for 6 months onward. People without fatty liver disease may notice a decrease in bad cholesterol after one month; these results are not typical and vary for everyone.
Online Helper: Please note that Bergamonte is a health supplement product, not a medicine. Bergamonte is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. None of the claims about the effectiveness of the capsule's ability to help healthy cholesterol are supported by the FDA. You should consult your physician before using Bergamonte or making any changes to your diet or exercise habits.
Online Helper: Bergamonte contains flavonoids which are very powerful chemicals. Bergamonte should not be taken by pregnant women or children. Follow the instructions on the product label.
Curious consumer: Where can I buy Bergamonte by Nutri Lifescience?
Online Helper: Nutri Lifescience has a user-friendly way for people to purchase Bergamonte online. US and Canadian customers with a PayPal account can order Bergamonte directly from the company or they can purchase it through Amazon. Please use promo code LIVING20 for PayPal and Amazon orders.

19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:19-23
