Longvida vs. Traditional Curcumin*
There are three basic ways in which Longvida’s optimized turmeric extract differs from traditional curcumin supplements:
- Longvida is 65 times more bioavailable than unformulated curcumin.
- Longvida produces free (not deactivated or metabolized) curcumin at therapeutic levels in the body.
- Curcumin from Longvida will pass the blood-brain barrier, unlike regular curcumin.
Generic curcumin shows great promise when tested in vitro and on animals, but it only produces insignificant positive trends in human trials. This is due to the problem of proper absorption, which requires three components: solubility, permeability, and stability. In other words, your body must be able to process curcumin and get it to the tissues that can benefit from it without curcumin breaking down and becoming ineffective. Because of regular curcumin’s poor absorption, a human would need to consume very large amounts in order to actually absorb enough to have a measurable effect, and ingesting that much turmeric extract can often cause digestive issues.
Longvida, however, is created with SLCP™ Technology, which enables a relatively small dose of curcumin to enter the body and retain its bioavailability and efficacy. Longvida is a safe, natural composition that promotes absorption and does not require high amounts of curcumin to be consumed, thus lowering the likelihood of digestive distress*.
Longvida’s optimized turmeric extract supports cognitive and overall health and provides antioxidant and inflammation-supporting benefits*. Over 3100 publications have been completed on the beneficial effects of curcumin. Clinical trials have shown that one small daily dose of Longvida produced significant health benefits in only 30 days. An overview published in Advanced Experimental Medical Biology stated that curcumin had exhibited important antioxidant, inflammation-supporting, and immune-enhancing properties.
