• FAST ACTING for quick relief of pain and inflammation

• Clinically proven effectiveness and bioavailability
Do Not Confuse Turmeric Root with Curcumin! Turmeric root supplements absolutely do not offer the same benefits as those containing isolated curcumin. Curcumin is the most potent component of the turmeric root. Unfortunately, turmeric root contains less than 2% of curcumin making it ineffective for any health benefits. In addition, over 95% of all clinical studies have been conducted using isolated curcumin and NOT with the turmeric root. Even 750mg of a 10:1 ratio extract of turmeric will deliver no more than 150mg of the active curcumin. But given the poor bioavailability (the amount of the active compound that reaches the target site or site of action) of this compound, the amount you actually get is likely far less than that. Clinical studies suggest that the bioavailability is less than 5%, making even standard 95% curcumin formulations fairly ineffective. As for a significantly weakened turmeric root formula? That becomes essentially useless!
Researchers recommend taking a dose of 3 to 4 g of 95% curcumin per day in order to obtain any health benefits like pain relief, inflammation reduction, or improvements to heart health or diabetes. This 3-4g dose is equivalent to taking six to eight capsules of curcumin 95%, or between twenty to thirty capsules of a high potency 750mg 10:1 ratio extract of turmeric root! Clearly taking this amount of capsules per day is unreasonable.
Longvida®, a highly bioavailable form of curcumin, is the result of testing over two hundred formulations and has taken more than ten years to develop.
In a human study on cancer patients, Longvida® curcumin was shown to be over 100 times more bioavailable than regular curcumin. This formulation was developed and patented by UCLA Medical School and is licensed exclusively to Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR).
Other benefits are:
• Vegan formula
• One 133mg capsule is equivalent to over 1500mg of curcumin. This would require taking 3 capsules of regular 95% curcumin extract or more than 10 capsules of 750mg turmeric root extract!
Take up to 3 capsules three times daily, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
