More about Longvida Curcumine-SLCP
Curcumin is one of the most well-known and widely used herbal preparations. It is the main active ingredient of turmeric, an aromatic spice from the root of Curcuma longa. Turmeric has its origins in Indian cuisine, where under the names turmeric or turmeric it forms an important part of the famous curry dishes.
Traditionally, curcumin is used to support the immune system and maintain healthy liver function and digestion. It also helps maintain supple joints and supports mental balance and central and peripheral nervous system function.
Curcumin-SLCP™: a technological breakthrough
The biggest challenge in developing curcumin preparations with optimal efficacy is overcoming the problems of its absorption and bioavailability. After all, curcumin in an "unprocessed" form is quickly converted in the intestine and in the liver after oral intake into inactive metabolites that are quickly excreted by the body. Verdure Sciences, the producer of Curcumin-SLCP™ from Vitals, has succeeded in solving these problems after years of research and cooperation with the University of California (UCLA). Through their patented technology, they have managed to increase the absorption of curcumin by 65x and the bioavailability by a whopping 285x (compared to standard curcumin preparations consisting of 95% curcumin).
In fact, the formula was inspired by Indian cuisine, where turmeric is mixed with oily ingredients in the preparation of curry pastes. Their curcumin product with the brand name Longvida® uses so-called Solid Lipid Curcumin Particles, where the curcumin is packaged in a fatty particle consisting of three long-chain fats also found in food, namely phosphatidylcholine, stearic acid and ascorbyl palmitate.
