Background Information
Curcumin – Superior Relief from Pain and Inflammation 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. Furthermore, many products on the market can be highly misleading, and may not be effective at all! Being aware of what 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.
Why is CurcuVIVA better? CurcuVIVA is based on the latest in curcumin technology, and provides the most bioavailable curcumin extract on the market. This new technology uses tiny curcumin nano-particles encased in a lipid (fat soluble) coating. This patented Solid Lipid Particle TechnologyTM improves bioavailability by more than 100 times compared to ordinary curcumin! This means that each 80mg capsule of CurcuVIVA is equivalent to 8g of 95% curcumin extract. The result of all of this is a fast acting, highly effective curcumin supplement in a dose of just one capsule per day!

The Problems with Other Turmeric and Curcumin Products It is essential to understand that turmeric root and curcumin are not the same thing! Curcumin is only a small component of turmeric root, but it is the component that is associated with health benefits. The vast majority of clinical studies have been conducted using curcumin, not turmeric root! As such, most turmeric formulas, which contain as little as 2% curcumin, are essentially useless!
Unfortunately, the problems do not stop there. Even if you are getting a high proportion of curcumin (like in a 95% curcumin extract) it is important to consider the bioavailability of the product. Curcumin on its own is absorbed very poorly by the body, meaning that it has extremely low bioavailability. Low bioavailability means low effectiveness. 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!
A human trial on curcumin showed statistically significant effects on clinical endpoints in a healthy population. The fact that such a low dose (80 mg) was needed to achieve effects in only 30 days is an interesting and unique finding as well, and adds to the substantial amount of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data compiled on Longvida®. The results of the study suggest that curcumin can produce beneficial effects in people who are without immediate disease states.

The study was conducted on 38 healthy middle aged people between the age of 40 and 60 who were either given a dose of 80 mg/day of Longvida® curcumin extract for four weeks or were a part of the 19 person placebo group. The study is particularly interesting because the relatively small dose of curcumin, from Longvida® which was used, exerted a variety of health promoting effects leading researchers to presume that a significant amount of the curcumin was absorbed, although not tested directly.

Blood sample readings collected from test subjects to assess nitric oxide and sICAM molecules which are relevant to assessing cardiovascular risk and related to blood pressure and atherosclerosis, were notably affected by the curcumin. Both readings corresponded to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. The study also indicated that curcumin may have a positive effect on liver health maintenance as was noted from the reduction of indicators used to mark liver injury. Participants had lowered levels of triglycerides which relates to other research demonstrating that cholesterol could potentially be lowered in relatively healthy persons given higher dosages of the substance, thus benefiting those with or at risk of having cardiovascular disease.
Interestingly, other markers of inflammation and free radicals/toxic species that cause inflammation and damage to cells were also significantly lowered. Both direct and indirect antioxidant actions of curcumin were evident in the subjects; these findings are consistent with in vitro and animal studies used to measure increases in curcumin induced antioxidant enzyme activity.

Market Trends
Numerous supplements on the market contain the curcumin extract of turmeric or just straight turmeric extract. However, many of these are poorly absorbed and offer little value in terms of therapeutic benefit due to their poor bioavailability.

New Technology – Better Products! Over the last ten years a great deal of research has been done to develop formulations that improve the bioavailability of curcumin. The goal has been to deliver more of the active molecules to the body in a much lower daily dose; as few as one to three capsules per day. There have been a number of technologies developed, but the one that has provided the most compelling evidence is nano-technology.
CurcuVIVA is clinically proven to deliver several health benefits as a result of its higher bioavailability over regular curcumin supplements.

AOR Advantage
Longvida® curcumin was introducedto Canada exclusively by AOR in 2011. CurcuVIVA has been clinically tested in humans, and has been shown to be highly effective for relieving pain and inflammation in patients with bone cancer. Furthermore, CurcuVIVA's advanced technology allows it to be absorbed very rapidly by the body, meaning that it is an excellent choice for rapid pain relief. Furthermore, with an effective dose of just one capsule per day CurcuVIVA is more convenient and more economical than most other curcumin supplements out there!

CurcuVIVA TM consists of solid lipid particles (SLP) which are tiny nano-sized (1 billionth of a meter) particles that have a protected layer that provides a phenomenal increase in stability, potency and effectiveness. Unlike regular curcumin that is easily broken down by stomach acids, Curcumin Fast Relief particles are resistant to acid breakdown. Even more important is the fact that these tiny particles are absorbed very rapidly. This means that they deliver all of the health health benefits of curcumin, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, antioxidant properties and other effects much faster than any other curcumin product.
CurcuVIVATM is based on this proven technology and has the following advantages:

• Clinically tested with results published in 2010 in the prestigious Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. In the study, patients with cancer of the bone experienced significant relief of pain, inflammation, improved quality of life and well-being.
• An unprecedented100-fold increase in bioavailability compared to regular curcumin.
• Patented by the University of California
• Published study showing positive effects in reducing beta-amyloid plaque in humans
Try CurcuVIVA TM today and start feeling the benefits of a real high-potency, high-bioavailability curcumin supplement.


Take 1 capsule per day, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
