Longvida optimized curcumin extract powder offers an optimized formulation of curcumin, a powerful, natural antioxidant. The optimized formula allows greater absorption of curcumin into target tissue based on factors like permeability, stability, and solubility.
Longvida optimized curcumin extract powder was developed in conjunction with neuroscientists at UCLA. The supplement offers a greater safety profile and uses a proprietary process to maximize bioavailability and absorption.
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, responsible for giving the spice its yellow tint. It can also be found in smaller amounts in ginger. When isolated, curcumin is a small molecule alternately called a curcuminoid and has similar effects as other polyphenols, a class of organic micronutrients that often act as powerful antioxidants.
As effective as curcumin is, it has generally poor oral bioavailability in its normal form. When not optimized, curcumin often ends up entirely in your colon. Curcumin must often be consumed with other supplements, most commonly a black pepper extract called piperine, to enhance absorption. However, Longvida optimized curcumin extract powder does away with the need for adding supplements by improving curcumin’s bioavailability to ensure that it reaches all parts of your body. It contains no piperine, toxins, or unstable oils from turmeric roots.
Based on various studies, there are various Longvida optimized curcumin extract powder uses. As a polyphenol, curcumin boasts potent antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are designed to neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are naturally created as a product of cellular oxidation. When left unchecked, free radicals can cause damage to your cells and your DNA, leading to a variety of possible diseases as you age. Antioxidants protect your system from these free radicals. Some studies have also found that curcumin can also boost the activity of your body’s existing enzymes.
Curcumin has also been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This offers wide range of potential applications. For example, curcumin can reduce inflammation in the colon and digestive tract to help with digestion. The anti-inflammatory properties may also protect against the progression of certain forms of cancer.
Some lab tests have shown that curcumin may potentially block the growth of certain tumors. One early study found that curcumin, in the form of turmeric extract, could stabilize colorectal cancer.
Other studies suggest that curcumin may contribute to protection from:
Some studies have shown that curcumin may prove to be an effective antidepressant by boosting serotonin, dopamine, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor.

Longvida® contains no piperine, a gluccuronidation inhibitor that may enhance the bioavailability of both nutrients, as well as potential toxins. Longvida also contains no unstable, volatile oils from turmeric root.*
Product contains one 30g or 60g jar of Longvida® Optimized Curcumin Extract Powder.

This needs to be sold in a bigger size. as even the 60 gram jar runs out way too fast, especially with 2 people. Unknown if I should take with or without food. Good for inflammation and neuroprotection.
Also good for people with Lupus! Probably other autoimmune disorders as well.
This, plus astaxanthin, high dose beta carotene, vitamin d + k, magnesium, and fish oil, are GREAT for people with discoid lupus, and probably SLE as well.
It will stain your clothes if you are not carefull when capping it. Unknown on 2nd Oct 2016
Seriously amazing for inflammation, and for taking alongside adderall because studies have shown it to reduce propensity for psychosis, when dosed in that manner. srubek on 22nd Jul 2016
I've been using this product for about a month now, and I notice an immediate decrease in my arthritis symptoms. It supposedly helping to prevent Alzheimer's is just an added bonus, as I cannot really feel that. I'll certainly continue buying it. Kurt West on 23rd May 2016
please include a measuring spoon that measures 200mg..presently I have to guess how much that is and i think i speak for many..just my second bottle so i don't know effects yet..
**ND Admin- We do not include scoops, as they are not accurate, and we feel they promote the idea you do not need a scale. That cannot be further from the truth. A milligram scale is needed to accurately measure powders. Densities very wildly, and dosing using a volumetric scoops can be very different from day to day. Not to mention, we do not feel all the environmental waste is responsible with sending plastic scoops in every order. We pay for carbon neutral shipping, and try to keep our packaging waste to a minimum.
We apologize for the inconvenience. We are considering offering reusable stainless steel scoops that customers can use for transferring powders. That would eliminate the waste, and make it easier for customers to transfer powders. nick on 18th May 2016
This is suppose to be the only type of curcumin that can cross the BBB Unknown on 14th Mar 2016
I love the effects of the Longivda. Having it in bulk makes it easy to mess with dosages. It's a lot easier to handle than regular curcumin powder too. Still dont want to get it on your clothes, but it does not fluff up into the air like regular powder. Kevin H on 13th Feb 2016
