Longvida Optimized Curcumin 500mg (60 capsules) by Vitamin Research Products
What is Longvida?
Longvida is an optimized form of curcumin, the primary compound present in turmeric root extract. Curcumin is a well-studied, scientifically-tested compound that acts as an antioxidant and an inflammation-supporting agent; it also promotes cognitive health and longevity*. Curcumin’s benefits are wide-ranging and impact several areas of your overall health, but the biggest challenge that scientists have faced is how to make it bioavailable enough that sufficient amounts of curcumin are absorbed and used by your body.
Longvida is the answer to that question*. Discovered by fortuitous accident by scientists trying to increase turmeric bioavailability, Longvida utilizes a patent-pending approach that’s designed to preserve the integrity of turmeric extract in the harsh environment of the stomach, promoting rapid absorption into the bloodstream and optimal delivery to target tissues*. After years of development, Longvida’s formula stands as the solution to the bioavailability issue with curcumin, and its unique process is now known as SLCP™ Technology.
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 inAdvanced Experimental Medical Biology stated that curcumin had exhibited important antioxidant, inflammation-supporting, and immune-enhancing properties.
Let’s take a look at some of curcumin’s documented benefits:
- As an antioxidant that passes the blood-brain barrier, curcumin can promote and support brain health by fighting free radicals, which can cause oxidative stress for cells. This antioxidant protection has wide-ranging effects, from helping sustain memory function to promoting optimal cognitive function*.
- Curcumin induces bile flow, which helps break down fats, and can help maintain healthy levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream. Turmeric extract can also protect the gastrointestinal tract and regulate secretion*.
- Because curcumin can help support triglycerides, it promotes heart health; it can also help maintain healthy levels of LDL cholesterol and promote optimal blood vessel health*.
- As an inflammation-supporting agent, curcumin helps improve joint comfort and promotes optimal joint health and motion*.
The Science Behind Longvida
Patent-pending SLCP™ Technology is responsible for Longvida’s amazing efficacy and success. More than a dozen research studies and clinical trials in independent labs have been completed on Longvida, all supportive of its benefits to various areas of your health and wellness. In addition, Longvida is free of harsh solvents and volatile oils; all its ingredients are "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) food additives, natural and gentle on your body.
Longvida itself is a complex combination of the highest-quality ingredients, all brought together in a careful process that preserves their integrity and thus their efficacy. The end product, in turn, protects the curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach, dissolving it only at the proper point of absorption in the digestive process. This helps the free form of curcumin cross into the bloodstream and reach targeted areas.
SLCP™ stands for Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle, which is the method SLCP™ Technology uses to achieve such high absorption rates. While the exact process is protected by the scientists who discovered it, the general idea is that turmeric extract uses the SLCP™ Optimized Lipophilic Matrix as a wrap-around shield, which allows it to permeate the body more effectively; the outer shell also protects the curcumin within from being prematurely dissolved by the stomach as it’s digested.
