Info: 90 Veg. Capsules
Frequently used in herbal medicine to help relieve joint inflammation, curcumin provides antioxidants for the maintenance of good health. CurcuMIND delivers the same free-form, highly bioavailable form of curcumin as AOR's CurcuVIVA and Curcumin Active Fast Relief (Longvida Optimized Curcumin). CurcuMIND also includes vitamin D for enhanced support of neurological disorders.
Curcumin can only cross the blood-brain barrier if it is in a free-form, and research has shown that this synergistic combination can help to reduce the plaques and tangles which form in neurons and may eventually lead to Alzheimer's disease.
This superior bioavailability of Longvida Curcumin in CurcuMIND means that it provides the equivalent of over 13 grams of a typical curcumin extract per capsule!
Aviva Customer Review:
I have arthritis in my neck which impinges on the nerves in my shoulder and arms. This winter has been particularly bad. I can't knit, lift things and am generally un-motivated. Sleep has been impossible. I have had prescriptions for Tylenol 2, 292s, even oxycodone. None of these helped. The only thing that did help was Aleve. My cardiologist and family doctor said NSAIDS like Aleve and sodium naproxen were dangerous (heart-wise) and told me not to take it. The pain was so bad, I ignored them. Even heart problems were worth risking if I could get some relief.
A few weeks ago my husband came home with a bottle of collagen and a bottle of CurcuMind (curcumin with vitamin D). You told him it would help. Sorry Nathan, but I did not believe it would be of any benefit. I followed your advice to please Jerry and figured I would have to go back to Aleve when the natural remedy failed.
I can't say my neck is cured, but I can tell you I have never had this kind of pain relief from any pharmaceutical. I can sleep, do more and I have not taken any other pain reliever since that day. I also have peace-of-mind knowing I am not risking my health.
I send you this letter at the risk of blowing my reputation of skeptic. Our family says I am the last person a placebo would work for. When Jerry comes up with his natural cures, they say "If it works for Rhonda, we'll try it. In the mean-time we'll save our money". Well this works. No cure, but incredible relief. I can live with this ... literally.
AOR is the first company to offer curcumin with vitamin D in a single product. This combination brings together two highly beneficial nutrients whose synergistic effects are not only advantageous for the promotion of good health in general, but which also have amazing potential for the treatment of a variety of health conditions.
Many conditions for which curcumin is helpful, such as inflammatory disorders and auto-immune diseases like IBD, have also been shown to benefit from vitamin D supplementation. Recent research has brought the importance of vitamin D to the forefront by showcasing its role in preventing a wide variety of health issues. These connections make it an ideal partner for curcumin, which has been shown to provide support for these same issues.
Furthermore, new studies are showing amazing promise for curcumin combined with vitamin D in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. This combination has been shown to help reduce amyloid plaque in the brain. In fact, in animal experiments, Longvida curcumin was found to increase amyloid plaque clearance from the brain better than four of the top pharmaceutical drugs for Alzheimer's disease, all in just four days!
AOR's Longvida Curcumin products are based on proven technology:
• 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.
• Another study showing positive effects in Alzheimer's disease patients from only 80 mg per day of Longvida curcumin is soon to be published.
• A minimum 100-fold increase in bioavailability compared to regular curcumin
• Patented by the University of California.
• Vegan formula
Longvida Curcumin consists of Solid Lipid Particles (SLP) which are tiny nano-sized (1 billionth of a meter) particles that have a protective layer providing a phenomenal increase in stability, potency and effectiveness. Unlike regular curcumin that is easily broken down by stomach acids, these solid lipid curcumin particles are resistant to acid breakdown. Even more important is the fact that these tiny particles are absorbed very rapidly through the stomach lining thanks to the protective layer. Once absorbed, the particle coating protects the curcumin from phase II detoxification processes, which eliminates curcumin quickly from the body, which is the fate of most curcumin. Finally, the tiny size of the nanoparticle allows it to be taken up into the body's cells quickly to be put to use. This means that they deliver all of the health benefits of curcumin, including pain relief, reduced inflammation, antioxidant properties and other effects much faster than any other curcumin product. Try Longvida Curcumin today and start feeling the benefits of a real high-potency, high-bioavailability curcumin supplement.
