Curcumin, the active compound extracted from turmeric root, is touted for its ability to mediate the body’s natural response to physical, chemical, and emotional stressors. Longvida® makes use of a patented technology that permits maximal absorption of free-form curcumin into the bloodstream and target tissues, including the brain. This technology means we don’t need to add extras like piperine to aid absorption. Because of this increased bioavailability, Longvida® has the greatest potential to impact a number of pathways affecting oxidative stress, inflammation, and the aggregation of proteins such as the amyloid-B peptide responsible for destructive brain plaques. Clinical data shows that curcumin supports a range of health issues.*

Description: Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, is touted for its ability to mediate the body’s natural response to physical, chemical and emotional stressors, but in its native state it is insoluble and breaks down rapidly in the liver and small intestine. Longvida® Optimized Curcumin makes use of a patented technology that permits maximal absorption of free-curcumin into the bloodstream (65x 95% curcumin extract) and target tissues, including the brain. Longvida® has been the subject of over 10 clinical trials showing its efficacy. Our formula combines it with the powerful antioxidant vitamin C.
Uses: Because of its increased bioavailabilty, Longvida® has the greatest potential to impact a number of pathways affecting oxidative stress, inflammation, and the aggregation of proteins such as the amyloid-B peptide responsible for destructive brain plaques. Clinical data shows curcumin supports:
Healthy brain function, normal cognition, mood and alertness, normal inflammatory response, joint, comfort, motility and function, healthy liver, colon, musculoskeletal, and cell function.
Vitamin C is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body. It protects indispensible molecules, such as proteins, lipids, RNA and DNA, from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species generated by normal metabolism and exposure to toxins and pollutants. As an enzyme cofactor, Vitamin C also participates in the synthesis of collagen, carnitine and carecholamine. Collagen synthesis is especially important for joint function.
The combination of curcumin and vitamin C has antifungal properties, and may be effective against Candida overgrowth.
Source Materials: Curcumin is extracted from turmeric root. Ascorbic acid is from corn sorbitol. Ascorbyl palmitate is from ascorbic acid and palm oil.
