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 promote cellular health.
Some studies have shown that curcumin may have mood boosting properties 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.*
As a dietary supplement, take 200mg of Longvida Optimized Curcumin Extract twice daily.
Curcumin Extract may have synergistic effects when paired with a Green Tea Extract.
Nootropics Depot offers 30g or 60g jars of high quality Longvida Curcumin Extract powder. Nootropics Depot's Longvida Curcumin has been lab-tested and verified for both product purity and identity.

In my previous product review I stated that 320 mg Longvida was required to obtain 80 mg optimized curcumin. I did the math wrong. DiSilvestro et al (2012) stated that they administered 400 mg Longvida, with 80 mg optimized curcumin. Jim Gearing on 12th Dec 2017
I have taken LongVida powder for 4 weeks, I believe it is helping my mental clarity and focus, and hand stiffness. The UCLA clinical trials quoted below recommends 300mg a day for prevention and to increase by 300mg every 10 days to reverse MCI. I am now taking 1000mg and plan to continue increasing the dose according to effects. The plus is the price is very competitive and the powder contains no allergens, unlike most capsules. The minus is the inconvenience of weighing it out every day. A tiny spill causes yellow stains so be careful where you measure it. It definitely needes to be measured. My product arrived before my scales, so I estimated the amount with a measuring spoon. When I got my scales and weighed the spoonful I realised I was under the amount by 50%. NJM on 5th Sep 2017
When I was copyediting research articles for refereed neurology journals, I came across some research on curcummin. I consulted with a doctor and the doctor recommended Longvida, I did some background investigating and communicated via email with one of the original researchers on the team that developed Longvida. I am pleased with the product.
Longvida is the only product that I have discovered that has been shown by peer-review research to be formulated to cross the blood-brain barrier (some other formulations use piperine, but I believe the the efficacy of this is questionable). All the fantastic claims made by distributors of non-Longvida curcummin are marketing hype because there is no hard research showing that the curcummin in the myriad of products out there crosses the blood-brain barrier.
As a "side benefit," after starting on Longvida, I very quickly noticed a personal effect of "mood enhancement." Because I was not expecting anything of this sort from the product, I would eliminate "placebo effect" for this result. It was only after experiencing this that I looked into the possibility of such an effect resulting from curcummin.
The reason I purchase the powder form of Longvida is that the standard dose of 500 mg per capsule supplied by every distributor that I have found is more that what the original research used, and, thus, the distributors are selling you more product than you need (and making more profit by doing so). The original researchers used 80 mg curcummin, for which you need 320 mg of the Longvida formulation and not 500 mg. Yes, I had to buy a scale, and, yes, it's a bit of a hassle to measure it out every day, but that's just who I am.
I recommend Nootropics Longvida curcummin because they have the integrity to offer the most trustworthy formulation of curcummin in the form that allows me, the consumer, to determine my own dosage, even though Nootropics makes less profit in the bargain. Jim Gearing on 14th Aug 2017
We hope and believe this product can help against mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Compare with ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01811381. Unknown on 2nd Aug 2017
Here in Australia , the only readily available liposomal curcumin cost something like $30 for 15-odd days supply.
Overall , choosing the Nootropics Depot option turns out to be about 90% (!) cheaper.
I will definitely continue with Nootropics Depot , particularly given their meticulous devotion to manufacturing and processing integrity ... Unknown on 12th Mar 2017
We rank this substance high due to the expectation that it will eventually help against mild cognitive impairment. It is developed by a well known manufacturer, Verdure Sciences, together with the famous UCLA university and used in the Clinical Trial NCT01811381. We didn´t want to wait for the result of the study for another two years but have only used Longvida for three Weeks up till now. Unknown on 22nd Feb 2017
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.
This, plus astaxanthin, high dose beta carotene, vitamin d + k, magnesium, and fish oil, are GREAT
It will stain your clothes if you are not carefull when capping it. Unknown on 2nd Oct 2016
Seriously amazing srubek on 22nd Jul 2016
I've been using this product for about a month now. 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
