In the late 1990s, a group of top neuroscientists at the UCLA School of Medicine, led by Dr Sally Frautschy PhD and Dr Greg Cole PhD began their quest to improve curcumin bioavailability.
After ten years of research, nearly 200 turmeric-based formulations and endless trial and error, the problem of curcumin bioavailability has been solved with the patented Solid Lipid Curcumin Particle Technology (SLCP™) of Longvida® curcumine
The secret of Longvida® curcumin lies in this patented process, which consists of encapsulating the curcumin with natural lipid particles to increase the absorption of curcumin in the body by at least 65 times. This allows it to be delivered into both plasma and red blood cells as free curcumin, the biologically active form of curcumin (DiSilvestro 2012).
