LAS VEGAS, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (OTCQB: HYEX), a leading innovator of clinically proven plant-based products for heart and brain health, has begun the launch of its premium Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit™ heart health supplement, BergaMet PRO+™, on Fullscript.com, the nation’s leading care delivery platform for integrative medicine.
The launch, which is expected to be completed by the third quarter, will make BergaMet PRO+ available to the more than 70,000 healthcare professionals and their more than 5 million patients on the Fullscript care platform. It follows the recent entry of Healthy Extracts’ natural formulations for brain health into the retail marketplace through Natural Grocers stores nationwide.
“Our launch on Fullscript dramatically expands our reach to healthcare practitioners and their millions of patients across the country,” stated Duke Pitts, president of Healthy Extracts. “Thousands of physicians trust Fullscript to provide the best health and wellness supplements on the market today, making this another strong validation of the clinically proven benefits of our BergaMet PRO+ for heart health.”
As the result of more than 17 published clinical trials, Citrus Bergamot has been shown to improve heart health, support immune response and address metabolic syndrome. Healthy Extracts’ Citrus Bergamot has also been clinically shown to naturally reduce cholesterol by lowering LDL and increasing HDL.
According to the CDC, nearly 94 million U.S. adults aged 20 years or older have high cholesterol levels that puts them at risk of heart disease. Every year an estimated 35 million are prescribed statins to lower cholesterol, but these drugs can cause numerous negative side effects.
A peer-reviewed clinical study demonstrated that the naturally-derived, bergamot polyphenolic fraction (BPF) contained in Healthy Extracts’ Citrus Bergamot can significantly enhance the beneficial effects of rosuvastatin, one of the most prescribed drugs for reducing cardiometabolic risk.
Healthy Extracts is the exclusive U.S. and Canadian provider of the world’s highest strength Citrus Bergamot SuperFruit. BergaMet PRO+ has 47% BPF Gold potency as compared to the closest competitor at only 38% BPF.
PRO+ is organic, vegan friendly, non-GMO and gluten-free, and produced and tested by certified U.S. facilities.
Healthy Extracts’ full line of natural heath health formulations addresses the fast-growing, multi-billion dollar heart-health supplement market which is projected to grow at 5.9% CAGR to reach $24.8 billion by 2027, according to ResearchAndMarkets.
