- HYEX’s portfolio of wholly owned subsidiaries currently comprises BergametNA and Ultimate Brain Nutrients
- BergametNA, whose products target cardiovascular and immune health, sources its formulations from the Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit(TM)
- The bergamot fruit is richly packed with polyphenolic flavanones, which are known to decrease bad cholesterol, triglyceride, and glucose, as well as increase the good cholesterol
- BergaMet only uses the highest concentration of polyphenolic flavanones (“BPF”) as the higher the BPF, the greater the effectiveness of the supplement
Guided by the philosophy ‘Live Life Young Again’ and its commitment to superior health technology by engaging in the R&D of natural plant-based formulations, Healthy Extracts (OTCQB: HYEX), through its portfolio of wholly owned subsidiaries that currently comprises Ultimate Brain Nutrients (“UBN”) and BergametNA, develops, sells, and distributes proprietary products with proven health benefits.
As UBN creates formulations that improve brain health, including memory, cognition, focus, and neuro-energy, BergametNA’s focus is primarily on the development of powerfully proven supplements, sourced from the Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit(TM) (“bergamot”) and which target cardiovascular and immune health.
Native to the Calabria region of Southern Italy, bergamot has a host of health benefits as it is a source of high concentrations of polyphenolic flavanones, measured in terms of the bergamot polyphenolic fraction (“BPF”). According to Dr. Gerald Haase, MD, a clinical professor of surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, the BPF in bergamots ranges from 30% to 47% (https://ibn.fm/74Mcl).
The fruit’s five key polyphenolic flavanones perform the following specific actions that offer human health benefits:
- They activate AMP kinase, which is a master regulator of glucose and fatty acid metabolism
- By acting like HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (“statins”), they block the mevalonate pathway (“MP”), which is known to synthesize cholesterol, thereby decreasing the amount of cholesterol made in the body
- They inhibit phosphodiesterase 3B, thus improving cardiac and overall performance by promoting vasodilation (blood vessel dilation) and smooth relaxation of the heart and lung muscles
Bergamot’s polyphenolic flavanones act just like statins and even have similar health benefits. However, while statins are known to cause side effects, some potentially severe, the compounds drawn from bergamots and, by extension, the supplements are considered safer and better.
Further, more than a dozen clinical studies and independent research have proven bergamot’s benefits as regards its ability to deal with cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Summarizing some of the findings, Dr. Haase noted: “With regard to metabolic syndrome, with or without fatty liver disease… total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol go down 25-35%, triglycerides go down more than 30%, glucose goes down around 20%, and the good cholesterol goes up by up to 40%.”
“In non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, there is dramatic improvement in dyslipidemia, decrease in oxidative damages, and there are decreases in liver enzyme levels. Glucose metabolism is also enhanced,” Dr. Haase added.
Dr. Haase further observes that the higher the BPF, the greater the supplement’s effectiveness. With BergametNA only using the bergamots with the highest BPF (47%), customers are guaranteed to extract more out of the powerfully proven plant-based supplements than from competitors’ products, which are sourced from bergamots whose BPF concentrations range between 30% and 37% (https://ibn.fm/JsjrA).
When Healthy Extracts Inc. (HYEX) formally changed its name from Grey Cloak Tech Inc. early this year, its resolve to primarily develop plant-based, proprietary nutraceuticals and neuro-products was clear. This commitment indeed continues and is embodied by the effective supplements the company continues to avail to its customers.
