Optimized Curcumin Longvida®

WHAT COUNTS IS THE ABSORPTION – NOT THE CONCENTRATION OF CURCUMIN

Curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. However,

1/ Curcumin levels in dry turmeric powder are only between 2 to 5%

2/ Curcumin is very poorly absorbed into the body.

It has been demonstrated that pure curcumin is not absorbed into the blood for doses up to 8 grams per day, i.e., the equivalent of over 200 grams of turmeric powder. (Lao 2006)

 

THE SOLUTION: OPTIM CURCUMA

The formula Longvida® of Optim Curcuma has been developed by a group of scientists and physicians from the University of California – Los Angeles ( UCLA) to solve the problem of the weak absorption of curcumin into the body.

After more than 10 years of research, the key to the effectiveness of the formula Longvida® was found in the patented process: SCLP (Solid-Lipid Curcumin Particle). In this process, curcumin powder is carefully covered with natural lecithin to form small particles that increase the absorption of “free” curcumin, i.e. its active form, into the body and bring the best benefits of Turmeric with one single capsule a day.
