Curcumin is a powerful free radical neutralizer that is known to support balanced immune function, but is also known to have poor bioavailability. NOW® CurcuBrain™ features Longvida® Optimized Curcumin, which in studies exhibits up to 65 times the bioavailability of free curcuminoids compared with generic 95% curcumin. Based on AUC measures (Area Under the Curve, which measures retention) Longvida® is up to 285x better absorbed and retained than generic 95% curcumin. Longvida® is absorbed by the GI tract and delivered to the rest of the body as free curcumin, the active form in the body. Many brands measure total curcumin in their absorption studies, which includes inactive curcumin components. Unique to Longvida®, it is shown to penetrate the blood-brain barrier for the support of healthy nerve tissues.
