This supplement was designed to support a healthy aging brain. It is so important for people to remain alert, think clearly and have a good memory as they age. The formula for Optimized Curcumin was developed by Douglas Laboratories.
This product contains two ingredients that are backed by clinical research. The first, Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, is absorbed better and is more bioavailable than other forms of curcumin. The second ingredient, Neurophenol™, is a proprietary blend of blueberry and grape extracts that support healthy brain function.
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin:
Curcumin is extracted from the spice tumeric. But, without using Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, the extract is not very useful to the body. The extracted curcumin is not easily absorbed in the body and breaks down quickly. There are three basic problems with this process. First, in order to be absorbed in the small intestine a compound must be soluble in water and curcumin is not soluble. Second, if the body is to use curcumin, it must retain its chemical identity and not convert to a different molecule. Curcumin degrades rapidly in the alkaline conditions in the small intestine. And third, a compound must also retain its chemical identity once it reaches the blood stream. But, once in the blood stream, ordinary curcumin goes straight to the liver. It is quickly deactivated in the liver by a process known as glucuronidation. The glucuronidation marks the curcumin for rapid elimination from the body.
However, Longvida® Optimized Curcumin overcomes all of these problems. It is absorbed into the blood in a form that the body can use. Therapeutic levels of free curcumin have been detected in the bloodstream and target tissues in research. Only free curcumin such as from Longvida® is able to penetrate the blood brain barrier, not the inactive glucuronide form.
There are a number of issues that can become problems for the aging brain. Some of the major ones are:
Research has shown that Longvida® Optimized Curcumin has a positive impact on all of these issues.
See the video "Curcumin Advancements: The Aging Brain with Longvida® Curcumin" by Blake Ebersole of Verdure Sciences.
The neurophenols in Optimized Curcumin are from wild blueberry extract and grape extract. Research has shown that blueberries and fruit flavonoids support memory in a healthy aging brain. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and the neurophenols in berries support healthy brain function.
