Found in the Indian spice turmeric, curcumin is a polyphenol gift of nature that has been a staple of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years and has recently spurred hundreds of studies focused on understanding the key to its secrets. Much of the early curcumin research done in test tubes and animals has been positive, pointing to natural benefits and overall health. Universities and medical centers are looking at Longvida™ for a variety of areas that curcumin has shown beneficial effects. But when testing moved to human clinical trials, the results were much less dramatic - the main reason being that most curcumin supplements are not absorbed well by the body.

Now, after years of research and study, an elite group of neuroscientists at the University of California Los Angeles has developed Longvida™ Curcumin. This proprietary Curcumin formula has been shown to speed its way to plasma and reach its target at concentrations at least 65 times higher than generic curcumin.

How is Nutrivene Longvida™ different from generic curcumin?
Longvida™ addresses the key problem of proper absorption: the reason 'generic' curcumin shows great things in the test tube and in animals, but only insignificant positive trends in clinical trials. Patent-pending SLCP™ Technology ensures a safe, natural composition that promotes absorption into the bloodstream and various organs. And because it is about how much curcumin is absorbed, not what is consumed, large amounts of curcumin are no longer needed, thus reducing the chance for gastrointestinal irritation.

Data in clinical and preclinical trials at laboratories and medical centers strongly support Longvida's safety and potential effectiveness in supporting general and specific health issues, including cognition.*

What research is behind it?
Human and in vivo data on Longvida™ includes the following results:

  • Curcumin from Longvida™ penetrates the bloodstream and the brain, and is one of the first to reach target concentrations in the body.*

  • Longvida™ may significantly support cognition, memory, and general health.*

  • Longvida™ reaches plasma at concentrations at least 65 times higher than generic curcumin.* (5,13,17)

What health conditions can Longvida™ be used for?
Curcumin has been studied for various health applications, including the promotion of longevity and cognitive health. As of June 2009, more than 2800 publications on curcumin were available through the NIH medical database and in ongoing human trials. Many have reported that Longvida™ may help promote joint health and flexibility, and help to modulate inflammatory responses already within the normal range. Curcumin is also a potent antioxidant and is used in skin products as an anti-microbial. Universities and medical centers are looking at Longvida™ for a variety of issues where curcumin has shown beneficial effects.

Is it safe?
The curcumin found in Longvida™ is a 100% natural, generally recognized as safe (GRAS) food additive, and has been used in traditional medicine and food for thousands of years. In clinical studies, curcumin showed a positive safety profile at doses of 8-12 grams (8,000-12,000 milligrams) per day.(7,22) Longvida™ is reported to have an excellent safety profile, and showed no acute high-dose toxicity at the highest dose tested, a dose equivalent to 1000 times the recommended dose.

Biceps tendonitis and shoulder impingement, can't say they are a thing of the past but my daily discomfort drmatically reduced—best guess: 70%—after starting Longvida. 2 caps in AM, plus BioPerine 10mg. No more ibuprofen, this works much better and no side effects.
