Curcumin is well known for its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties‚ which are well supported by clinical studies. These studies have shown that curcumin is highly effective for improving joint mobility and for reducing stiffness‚ swelling and pain.
However‚ until recently‚ very high doses of curcumin (over 8g per day) have been required to achieve these results due to weak turmeric extracts that provide only 2% curcumin and to the poor bioavailability of curcumin. Studies suggest that you need to take more than 8g of a regular 95% curcumin extract before it becomes detectable in your blood! Taking this many capsules per day just to achieve an effective dose is highly inconvenient and costly!
Furthermore‚ many products on the market can be highly misleading‚ and may not be effective at all! Being aware of that is actually in each product and taking advantage of the latest advances in nutraceutical technology can help to ensure that you are getting the best possible curcumin supplement‚ and therefore the most effective relief from pain and inflammation.
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin consist of Solid Lipid Particles™ (SLP) which are tiny nano-sized (1 billionth of a meter) particles that have a protective layer providing a phenomenal increase in stability‚ potency and effectiveness. Unlike regular curcumin that is easily broken down by stomach acids‚ these solid lipid curcumin particles are resistant to acid breakdown. What is even more important is the fact that this tiny particles are absorbed very rapidly through the stomach lining thanks to the protective layer. Once they absorbed‚ the particle coating protects the curcumin from phase II detoxification processes‚ which eliminates curcumin quickly from the body‚ which is the fate of most curcumin. Finally the tiny size of the nanoparticle allows ot to be taken up into the body's cells quickly to be put to use. This means that they deliver all of the health benefits of curcumin‚ including pain relief‚ reduced inflammation‚ antioxidant properties and other effects much faster than any other curcumin product.
Longvida® curcumin‚ found in Curcu Viva‚ has been clinically tested in humans‚ and has been shown to be highly effective for relieving pain and inflammation in patients with bone cancer. A human study recently found that this type of curcumin reduced plasma beta amyloid‚ which is linked to the development of Alzheimer's-type dementia. CurcuViva provides 80 mg of Longvida® Optimized Curcumin‚ the equivalent of at least 8g of regular curcumin per capsule due to a 100-fold increase in biovailability‚ in the convenient dose of 1 capsule per day.
