New Nutrivene Longvida Optimized Curcumin is a proprietary formula containing the natural antioxidant curcumin, and is optimized for maximum targeting of curcumin into blood and tissues to keep the body operating in top shape. Longvida was developed over several years by an elite group of neuroscientists at a leading California research unversity. It took years to develop and perfect Longvida, and now it is the focus of several ongoing clinical trials.
How is Nutrivene Longvida different from regular 'turmeric 95%'?
Longvida addresses the key problem of proper absorption: why '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, high amounts of curcumin are no longer needed, thus reducing the chance for gastrointestinal irritation.
Data in clinical and preclinical trials at a leading California research university, and other laboratories and medical centers strongly supports Longvidaâ€™s safety and potential for effectiveness for supporting general and specific health areas, including cognition.*
What research is behind it?
Human and in vivo data on Longvida includes the following results:
â€cCurcumin from Longvida penetrates the bloodstream and the brain, and is one of the first to reach target concentrations in the body.*
â€c Longvida may significantly support cognition, memory, and general health.*
â€c Longvida reaches plasma at least 65 times better 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 and healing agent. Universities and medical centers are looking at Longvida for a variety of areas that curcumin has shown beneficial effects.
What is the recommended dose?
The recommended dose is 1-2 capsules per day, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
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.
Is Longvida okay for people with dietary restrictions?
Longvida contains all ingredients found in our food chain, contains no animal products, and is gluten-free. Longvida may contain ingredients made from corn and soy. Longvida is made using ethylene dichloride (EDC)-free, natural turmeric extract made and perfected in India.

Since each individual has different medical needs, we recommend that you speak with your healthcare practitioner about Longvida. Use during chemotherapy should only be performed under the direct supervision of a qualified medical professional. Curcumin may enhance the action of anti-platelet drugs, high doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or warfarin.
