Supports working memory, calmness, and satisfaction in coping with mental strain, and lessens the physical fatigue. Supports cardiovascular health.
Extremely Well Absorbed
The three curcumins from turmeric root have potent benefits in experimental systems, but are poorly absorbed when taken by mouth, which greatly limits their effectiveness. LONGVIDA® Optimized Curcumin Extract is excellently absorbed by mouth and delivers curcumins to the brain.
Promotes Healthy Mood Resilience When Under Stress
In a clinical trial, healthy individuals with age-related memory difficulties were randomly assigned to receive either LONGVIDA® or a placebo, daily by mouth for 28 days. On the first day they took a challenging, computerized cognitive test. Both groups reported lowered calmness and "contentedness" (satisfaction), perhaps due to frustration from taking the test. On the 28th day the test was repeated and the curcumin group scored statistically better than placebo for calmness and contentedness.
Supports Working Memory Under Mental Strain
The repeat of the cognitive assessment test at 28 days found the curcumin group statistically more improved than the placebo group on a measure of working memory. This is related to alertness and to the brain's short-term information capacity to facilitate doing a task. LONGVIDA® may help conserve this faculty, which tends to decline with age.
Lessens Physical Fatigue Associated with Mental Strain
As the trial began, taking the test brought on physical fatigue similarly in both groups. On the repeat test after the trial ended, the curcumin group reported less fatigue than before, to a statistically superior extent compared to the placebo group.
Ingredients & Facts
The three major curcumins (curcumin, demethoxy-curcumin, and bis-demethoxycurcumin) are the substances most responsible for the 4,000-plus years of traditional medicinal use of turmeric root. Modern science has extensively researched these curcumins (technically, curcuminoid polyphenols) and established their powerful antioxidant and myriad of other positive actions. But they have a fatal flaw: they are normally very poorly absorbed when taken by mouth. The invention of LONGVIDA® Optimized Curcumin Extract unlocks the healthgiving potential of the curcumins by dramatically improving their oral absorption. A triple-blinded clinical trial revealed important brain benefits of LONGVIDA®: conservation of working memory, improved calmness and "contentedness" (roughly equating to satisfaction) when under mental strain, less tendency to physical fatigue from such challenge. In this trial the curcumin group also showed cardiovascular benefit, by lowering total and LDL cholesterol statistically better than the placebo group. This Brain Curcumins supplement from the BrainMD Health team supplies 25 percent more LONGVIDA® per capsule (500 mg) than was used in the clinical trial (400 mg), for additional benefit to mind and body.
