The market is flooded with supplements containing curcumin but Nordic Naturals have gone that extra mile. They have made it available as a chewable gummy, making it an easy and delicious way to take a regular dose of turmeric. Two mango-flavoured gummies provide 200mg of Longvida® Optimized Curcumin® Extract, which was designed using patented Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle (SLCP™) Technology. SLCP™ is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, offering efficacious amounts of free curcumin at easily managed daily doses.
Curcumin has been extensively studied and is well-known for the role it plays in supporting healthy cyclooxygenase–2 (COX2) enzyme activity whilst also supporting the metabolism of prostaglandins, leukotrienes and thromboxanes. It also provides liver, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular support. It also supports healthy metabolic balance throughout the body.
To optimise absorption, SLCP™ helps to protect the free curcumin from being quickly digested and excreted. This is due to cutting edge technology that uses a patented combination of lipids to gently coat the curcumin, which then forms a micelle. This end product preserves the curcumin from the harsh environment of the stomach and dissolves it at the point of absorption, thus delivering it into the bloodstream and target tissues. This technology allows the curcumin to circulate in the body, allowing it reach many areas including the blood-brain-barrier. Studies have shown that Longvida® offers a 7.5 hour half-life.
