Optimized Curcumin with Pomegranate Extract by ProHealth is a superior blend of Longvida Curcumin and Pomella Pomegranate Extract which captures the full antioxidant profile as found naturally in pomegranates. Longvida Curcumin in this blend is 285 times more bioavailable than regular curcumin and helps support a healthy inflammatory response, joint health and memory.
Curcumin Longvida® is precisely set in a way that preserves and protects the curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach, dissolves it at the point of absorption in the GI tract, and helps the free form of curcumin cross into the bloodstream.
- More than a dozen research studies and clinical trials(1) in independent labs have been completed on Longvida.
- One small, single daily dose of Longvida offered significant health benefits in just 30 days.
- Published chronic-dosing safety studies on Longvida support a strong safety profile.
- Longvida is 285 times more bioavailable than regular curcumin.
- Longvida offers therapeutic levels of free (not deactivated/metabolized) curcumin.
- Promotes joint health and flexibility
- Maintain a healthy inflammatory response already in the healthy range
- Curcumin from Longvida passes the blood-brain barrier.
- Longvida contains no metabolic inhibitors, volatile oils, or crude, unpurified ingredients.
Pomella® Pomegranate Extract is a standardized breakthrough formula of the primary natural antioxidants of the pomegranate fruit, punicalagins. It is 100% natural, clinically researched and highly bioavailable*. Today, researchers around the world have tested Pomella® Extract and the antioxidants it can provide on a wide range of health conditions.
Urolithins (Pomella's gut-derived metabolites) have recently captured the attention of researchers for their incredible potential to protect brain cells responsible for memory. In addition to studies on the effectiveness of Pomella®, researchers have also tested the effect of pomegranate juice on different conditions. These results offer hope for a variety of conditions. Studies on pomegranate juice report that it supports digestion , encourages healthy skin, and for joints, in addition to lowering inflammation, it may promote the longevity of cartilage, the breakdown of which often contributes to joint pain.
The best pomegranate extract will contain a ratio of punicalagins, or "polyphenol bombs", and other naturally-occurring nutrients like that of pomegranate juice. As of today, Pomella® extract is the only pomegranate extract that contains the exact nutrient profile needed to deliver the health benefits linked to pomegranates. Individuals who suffer from chronic conditions may also benefit from large doses of antioxidants as the research suggests. It does deserve noting that supplements of any kind should be taken as part of a holistic approach for the best results. References »
