Longvida - SLCP curcumin (Solid Liquid Curcumin Particles), the ingredient of OptimCurcuma, is a patented formulation that enhances the absorption (bioavailability) of curcumin and thus its efficacy.
In this unique process to prepare this formulation, the curcumin is coated under specific conditions with lecithin (phospholipid) and steraric acid. This coating protects the curcumin during its passage through the stomach and the gut - and keeps the curcumin in its "free" form.
A non protected curcumin, for instance the one from a curcuma powder found in a food store, does not stay for as long in its free form and is conjugated (associated) with other molecules (glucuronides), inhibiting its activity.
It’s only been 5 days of taking it and it’s changing my life. White tongue has dramatically decreased, which shows the impact it has on gut dysbiosis. Definitely recommend. I mix it into my yogurt, it’s the best way to take it. Cant wait to see what I’m like after one month of taking it.
