Curcumin Optimized 90 capsules - Longvida curcumin-extract with methyl-B12 and vitamin C | Power Supplements
Curcumin is quickly gaining popularity. At least one in five Americans aged 55 and older who use supplements take a curcumin supplement. The use of curcumin is taking off rapidly in Europe too. It is now the most popular supplement.
Curcumin is a natural substance that is present in the root of the turmeric plant (Curcuma), also known as the Golden Spice from India. Turmeric is also widely used as a spice in Indian cuisine. Curcumin is one of the substances that give turmeric its yellow colour.
Turmeric also contains closely related compounds such as desmethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin. Together, these compounds are known as curcuminoids. The turmeric spice contains about 3% curcuminoids. These curcuminoids can be found in Optimized Curcumin.
The curcuminoids in this supplement are aided by vitamin C, a vitamin that contributes to normal formation of collagen and thus normal cartilage function. Optimized Curcumin also contains vitamin B12 and methylcobalamin. Vitamin B12 plays a role in the cell division process and contributes to normal psychological function.
Optimal absorption, safe absorption
On its own, curcumin - just like the other curcuminoids - is not well absorbed by the body. To get the most out of curcumin supplements, scientists have sought different ways to improve this absorption. The best method is one that combines very good absorption with maximum safety of use.
Longvida® Optimized Curcumin was selected as the ingredient that excels in these two qualities. The phospholipids method used for this curcumin ensures a 95-times higher absorption of curcumin. In contrast to several other methods, it does not have any potential adverse effects.

By choosing Optimized Curcumin , you are choosing quality.
The right dosage. Because of the varying and generally low absorbability of many curcumin preparations, it is often difficult to specify a correct dosage. With Longvida® Optimized Curcumin this is not a problem. A total of 19 scientific studies have been conducted with this ingredient up to 2018. These studies have shown that already with 400 mg Longvida® a large amount of curcuminoids find their way through the human body. After more than 7 hours half of the absorbed curcuminoids are still active, and 24 hours after intake a significant amount remains in the bloodstream. Thanks to this long-lasting release, you only have to take one dose of Optimized Curcumin a day.
Guaranteed quality. This top-quality ingredient is produced by Verdure Sciences, an American company that has widely invested in scientific research. The processing of Curcuma plants into the final ingredient is done in conformity with ISO 22000 and ISO 9001 standards. The processing of the ingredients into capsules takes place in the Netherlands under strict procedures (GMP standard).
Independently tested. The end product is randomly tested for heavy metals and biological pollutants by the independent laboratory NutriControl

Particulate matter and your healthAs the Dutch government decided to move away from natural fossilized energy sources, we are moving towards solar and wind energy.
Because solar and wind energy cannot provide all energy and a decision to also move away from natural gas, biomass plants seemed to be the perfect solution.
Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production (electricity or heat). It can be purposely grown energy crops, wood or forest residues, waste from food crops (wheat straw), horticulture (yard waste), food processing (corn cobs), animal farming (manure, rich in nitrogen and phosphorus), or human waste from sewage plants.
Burning plant-derived biomass releases CO2, but it has still been classified as a renewable energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks because photosynthesis cycles the CO2 back into new crops. In some cases, this recycling of CO2 from plants to atmosphere and back into plants can even be CO2 negative, as a relatively large portion of the CO2 is moved to the soil during each cycle.
However, over the past few months it has become clear how a lot of biomass comes from trees, that were previously pristine forests in the USA or the Baltics.
While in the best case, the use of biomass could even be CO2 negative, burning biomass will result in excessive CO2 output locally as well as of particulate matter.
This is why almost overnight, due to negative public opinion, politicians changed their mind. Too late though, there are already few hundred biomass plants that are being constructed due to substantial subsidies that were handed out, so we can expect a substantial worsening of air quality in the upcoming decade(s) because of the increased amount of particulate matter.
Low-dose radiation therapyLast week I listened to a Dutch podcast, which in general discusses news and politics, but for once, talked about low-dose radiatian therapy as a way to treat COVID-19. This made me curious enough that I wanted to find out more about this particular treatment method.
Most of us know at least one person, whos's been treated with high-dose radiation order to get rid of a malignant tumor. It is less well known that low dosages can be used as well and is used in some countries to treat inflammation disorders such as arthritis.
In general, this is met with disbelief as the official point of view is "all radiation is harmful" .
Proof to the contrary
Yet, over 3000 scientific research papers show that low dose irradiation is stimulatory and/or beneficial in a wide variety of microbes, plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates.
Zinc and HCQ
In the past few months, nearly everyone will have become familiar with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and how it has been welcomed as a miracle drug, only to be set aside as being too dangerous to expose sick patients with underlying cardiovascular diseases to it.
Upon learning how HCQ is supposed to be used in this crisis, I was flabbergasted to read how HCQ was put to use by itself, as a drug on its own. True enough, HCQ is a malaria drug, but it was not just meant to be used as a curative medicin on its own for COVID-19 but as a messenger to transport the true miracle mineral, zinc into cells.
The now famous Zelenko protocol which uses HCQ , azithromycin and zinc as well as a number of other essential vitamins and minerals, was never meant to be used in hospital either, but for use by doctors on patients who had just fallen ill.
Now the researchers who discredited HCQ in the Lancet article have been debunked as having used fraudulous data in order to promote a much more expensive drug in which one of the authors had a vested interested, we think it is about time to explain a thing or two on why and how HCQ is used in combination with zinc.
Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1
After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works.
Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.
How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.
At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.
There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.
Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.
How to prevent getting sick from the flu
You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.
Most flu germs are spread in two ways:
- touching such as hand-to-hand contact
- droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air
Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
- avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
- avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
- sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
- shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
- avoid crowded rooms
PFAS pollutants causing turmoil
In October, nearly every construction project came to a grinding halt in the Netherlands, because not a single project except the smallest ones can be completed without excessive paper work or laboratory tests.
Why? The current legal threshold for PFAS, an abbreviation for perfluorinated alkylated substances has been set extremely low until the government is able to define a proper health limit for contaminated soil so as to prevent contamination of clean soil with more heavily contaminated soil.
If cemeteries hadn't been exempt from the rule, not a single dead body could have been interred, since PFAS-chemicals , also known as 'forever chemicals' have accumulated in our bodies to an extent that exceeds the legally set threshold, which is currently as low as the lowest possible detection level.
