A highly advanced curcumin formula with enhanced absorption and bioavailability combined with Neurophenol®, a proprietary blend of standardized blueberry and grape extracts.
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, based on discoveries from UCLA, is a revolutionary ingredient for healthy brain aging. Longvida’s® Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle (SLCP) Technology meets all three requirements for bioavailability: solubility, permeability, and stability, as evidenced by therapeutic levels of free curcumin detected in the bloodstream and target tissues. The SLCP technology formulation precisely preserves curcumin particles in a solid lipid base that protects the curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach, and allows it to dissolve at the optimal point for absorption in the GI tract. The end result permits maximal absorption of the active free form of curcumin.
Longvida® Curcumin is supported by more than a dozen bioavailability studies showing extended absorption and 65 times more bioavailability than typical curcuminoids, with a half-life of 7 hours, versus 2 hours for phospholipid curcumin and 0-1 hours for unformulated curcumin.
Berries are high in antioxidants, and it is well documented that blueberries and fruit flavonoids play a significant role in memory support and a healthy aging brain. Polyphenols contained in berries may have multiple physiological effects that serve to support healthy brain function.
Neurophenol® is a standardized blend of polyphenols from Canadian wild blueberries and French grapes. The active molecules in these berries are concentrated according to a proprietary manufacturing process in order to achieve a highly purified extract. Neurophenol® supports cognitive function, as demonstrated in several recent studies. In a recent randomized, double-blind study of 200 healthy individuals between the ages of 60-70, Neurophenol® provided significant support for episodic memory and verbal recognition memory. Animal research suggests that Neurophenol® may also support spatial memory. Spatial memory is essential for recording information about orientation in the environment, while recognition memory is a key factor in the ability to recognize previous events. In a multi-national study of 200 older adults, Neurophenol® provided significant support for cognitive performance and memory at a dose of 600 mg per day over a six-month period. The supplement supported episodic memory or the ability to remember a past event. Neurophenol® also promoted the ability to encode and retrieve verbal information. For both outcomes, significant support was evident in the lowest quartiles of initial performance. These actions may be explained, in part, by modulation of the expression of genes involved in neuronal plasticity.
