Abstract

The occurrence of metabolic syndrome is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. Moreover, the size oflow-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles, and liver dysfunction identified as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) both represent important biomarkers for the development of cardiometabolic risk in patients with metabolic syndrome. Patients being treated with bergamot polyphenolic fraction show significant reductions in fasting plasma glucose, serum LDL cholesterol and triglycerides along with an increase of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level. This effect is accompanied in ultrasonography examination by significant reduction NAFLD.
