Optimized Curcumin Longvida SD by ProHealth is a finely-tuned matrix of ingredients brought together in a gentle multi-step process. Optimized Curcumin Longvida SD is ideal for mixing in drinks, smoothies or shakes. Curcumin is the phenomenal antioxidant compound that is responsible for the yellow color of Indian curries, and is found in our prepared foods such as pickles and mustard. Curcumin is the primary compound found in most standardized extracts from turmeric (Curcuma longa) root.
Longvida® is a breakthrough formula containing the natural antioxidant curcumin, and is optimized for maximum targeting of curcumin into blood and tissues. It was developed over several years by Verdure and an elite group of university neuroscientists at UCLA.
Longvida® took years to develop and perfect, and is the choice of clinicians and researchers around the globe. The end product is precisely set in a way that preserves and protects the curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach, dissolves at the point of absorption in the GI tract, and helps the free form of curcumin cross into the blood stream and target tissues.*
- More than a dozen research studies and clinical trials1 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.
Cutting-edge SLCP™ Technology (patent pending) is responsible for the 'magic' of Longvida® SLCP is the ideal absorption-promoting system, based on real, live research data that was repeated over and over using validated analytical methodologies. Yet all the ingredients are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) food additives, and Longvida® is free of harsh solvents or volatile oils. References »
