Q: What are the main ingredients in CurcuActiv, and why are they so critical?
A: Revolutionary Ingredient #1: LONGVIDA®
Turmeric (Curcumin longa) has long been lauded as a wonder herb, and it’s most active constituent, curcumin, has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. More than 6,500 scientific papers have been published on its healing properties. Research has shown that curcumin can: keep synapses free of beta amyloid plaque; repair brain tangles; and fight inflammation that can damage neurons.
However, curcumin has historically been poorly absorbed, making it hard to harness its full healing power.
LONGVIDA® is a breakthrough form of curcumin developed by neuroscientists at a leading research university to overcome the absorption issues. Clinical studies show that LONGVIDA® is a staggering 65 times more bioavailable than ordinary curcumin! It’s also 600 percent longer lasting in your bloodstream.
A trademark technology called Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle™ (SLCP™), protects LONGVIDA® curcumin molecules from the harsh environment of the stomach. This allows the LONGVIDA® to dissolve once it’s absorbed into the GI tract and smoothly cross over into the blood.
Neuroscientists have also found a way to deliver LONGVIDA®’s nutrients to the brain, where ordinary curcumin can’t go. Because of its low molecular size, LONGVIDA® can pass through the blood-brain barrier. This means it can nourish and protect the brain!
Revolutionary Ingredient #2: Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin)
Numerous research studies have touted the importance of B vitamins for brain function, heart health and mood stability. We’ve added methylcobalamin to CurcuActiv. It’s a powerful form of bio-active vitamin B12 that is well absorbed and can effectively cross the blood-brain barrier. What’s more, it’s already active in the central nervous system, so your brain can easily accept and use it.
Scientists have linked low levels of vitamin B12 with brain shrinkage and memory loss. CurcuActiv fights this by delivering daily doses and optimum levels of a specialized and bioavailable vitamin B12 to your brain.
Revolutionary Ingredient #3: Magnesium (as Magnesium citrate)
To promote learning and memory function, CurcuActiv contains a proprietary form of low molecular weight magnesium — called Magnesium citrate. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, and helps increase the number of synapses in the Hippocampus. (The Hippocampus is the center of emotion, memory and the autonomic nervous system!)
Magnesium citrate is much more effective than many magnesium supplements because it CAN cross the blood-brain barrier. This means a much larger quantity can actually reach your brain to help improve cognition and memory.
