Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, based on patent pending discoveries from UCLA, is a revolutionary new 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 in a way that preserves and 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.
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. Specifically, blueberry, strawberry, blackberry, grape and plum juices or extracts have all been successfully tested in various animal models of cognitive function. Studies in which elderly subjects consumed grape or blueberry juice daily for 12 weeks noted a significant benefits in verbal learning memory. Neurophenol™ provides flavonoids from standardized extracts of wild blueberry and grape such as anthocyanidins, monomers, dimmers and oligomers. These fruits are being increasingly studied to better understand their effects on cognitive function. Neurophenol proprietary blend is currently being evaluated in a multi-centered, placebo-controlled, randomized, double blind study investigating cognitive function in healthy aging adults.
