Hi I'm hypothyroid and due to this have high cholesterol much of which is LDL bad cholesterol. The doctor sent me to an Endocrinologist who because I couldn't tolerate the statins I'd been put on suggested using 5mg a week and trying to raise it, but even that small dose was knocking me for six I could hardly function. Looking round for something else to reduce the LDL I stumbled on an article in a paper about the benefits if Earl Grey tea which has bergamot in it. Reading the comments a few were saying bergamot capsules were as effective as statins. Does anyone have any experience of using bergamot capsules to lower cholesterol?
